  1. Sunday i hit two of the best shots i have hit in several years. #12 big uphill dogleg left- tee shot went through the fairway into the trees. 193 yard out and i hit about a 40 yard cut and it rolled right up onto the front of the green. I can hit that shot, just not normally on purpose! 🙂 On the next hole i was under some trees 105 out and punched one that came off perfectly again, hit just short of the green and rolled all the way to the back pin about a foot and a half. Unexpected birdie!
  2. Gotta keep trying. Looking forward to the day that i "win" and have to figure out who gets the invite to go with me!
  3. I can't believe that no one on here has chimed in! Sounds like an awesome opportunity. Hopefully someday I'll make it out there.
  4. There are several nice golf courses in the Spokane area. Indian Canyon, Hangman Valley and The Creek at Qualchan are all impressive municipal courses, expecially for the price. The Coeur D Alene resort course was probably the nicest I have ever been on. Stay at the resort, take the boat to the course and you will not be disappointed. Its' been a long time since I have been, but I remember that Circling Raven was really nice as well. It's been three years since i have been, but Gamble Sands was nice, but in the middle of nowhere, not sure what else there was to do, but golf. They were the first course that i had seen that had those "golf boards", those are fun! Last year, I played Kalispel G&CC last year (formerly Spokane CC) as part of a stay and play with the Northern Quest casino, again... really nice- a lot of history there- course was founded in 1898 and hosted the the first US Women's Open. You could go down to Pullman and play Palouse Ridge- another winner.
  5. 1- Finally get fit for clubs! My HiBore is getting pretty long in the tooth. Club Champion full bag fitting next week... if nothing else, it should be fun with all the "toys" they will have to play with. 2- Break par at least once. Shot a couple of 74s in 2017... and a couple of 73s in 2018, and then to finish off the year I finally shot a 72 (winter rules still count, right?) 3- Be competitive in the club championship this year. Maybe I can't beat them, but I want to hang with the big boys for two rounds. If only I can stay out of my own head, I know that I can do it. (Any suggestions on how to not think too much?) 4- Play and practice as much and possible. Hopefully there will be a couple of golf trips in the cards for me this year as well. Reno and Bandon are in the works. 5- Keep my weight in check. I lost 120 lbs last year and have now gained about 30 back. I need to find a middle ground to maintain. This, I think, will be harder than breaking par. 6- ...one more I heard on a podcast this week. Birdie every hole on my home course this year. This will be fun to track. #2 and 12... I dunno.
  6. Saturday, i shot my best round ever- one over 73. The best part was that i was 4 over after the third hole,and still 4 over at the turn. I finished strong - three under on the back (also personal best). I I have shot 74 and 75s in the past couple of years, but always had started great and managed to stumble on the way in. I have lost 120 lbs in the past 5 months, and i swear i think i may be more proud of this round of golf than i am in my weight loss(which i am pretty proud of...)
  7. I searched for this topic, because I was fearing having the same issue. I am down 50+ lbs in the last 2 months (50 or so still to go...), and am now just starting to head back out to the links. I finished up last fall at 5.1( my lowest index ever) and first time out to the range i shanked my first twenty plus shots. It scared me to death. Thankfully i seem to have found my groove again and after yesterday's revision i am now down to 4.7. Don't give up, and be confident in yourself that you can get it back, and you will!
