  1. Well, to follow up on my previous post above this one. This afternoon, I shot another 71. A little more exciting. 3 birdies, 10 pars, 4 bogeys, AND a Hole-In-One!! One of our weekly Mens Club tournaments. Made quite a bit of money today!! (And drank lots of beer). Downside: Handicap Index Trend is down to 8.1
  2. Thanks, @klineka Trend is down to 8.6. I'll see if I can I get anywhere near that score this afternoon. I think playing 6 days a week has something to do with it.
  3. Another strange round for me today. 6 birdies, 8 pars, 3 bogeys, and 1 dbl for a 71 (34-37). Started out strong with a birdie, the dbl (which was my stupidity of not finishing the putt), another birdie, then 2 pars, a bogey, 2 more birdies, 2 pars, then another birdie, par, birdie, par, then 2 bogeys, finishing with 2 pars. For a while I was thinking 66, here I come, but then reality set in.
  4. Last Thursday was a 76, Friday and Saturday, I just couldn't get my head straight and shot a pair of 82's. Sunday and today, back to 76. All the 76's are 38-38. I guess I have to figure out where I'm losing those 4 shots, and if it's on the same holes or same type of shots.
  5. 76 today. That's after 12 rounds in the last 11 days. No real score for the last 4 days. They were games like alternate shot, scrambles, straight match play. Tomorrow, I rest. I need it!
  6. So, picking up where I left off. Saturdays round was a 83, Sunday was 79, and yesterday was 74. Today, we're supposed to play at 1 PM, but it doesn't look too good. Thunderstorms in the area.
  7. Wednesday's round was a 78, Thursday, shot an 81. Friday, we started out, but the rain drove us off the course. Wednesday was the start of 15 straight days of golf.
  8. I finally did it! Even when I shot a 68, I had a 6. Well, that ended today. Hole 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Out 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 In Total Par 4 4 4 3 5 4 5 3 4 36 4 3 5 3 4 4 5 4 4 36 72 Score 5 4 4 4 5 5 4 2 5 38 4 3 5 3 4 4 5 4 3 35 73 Reading LSW through, but haven't implemented any of the practices or strategies yet. However, I think just reading through it, some of it is seeping into my game. Great book.
  9. Thursday's round was a 78, on a course I've never played before. Usually, it takes a few times on a course before I can score somewhat well. Friday's round, at my home course came in at 75, Saturday was 80, and today, I shot a 73 (38-35). 11 pars, 3 birdies, 4 bogeys. No 6's.!!! Going to play heck with my handicap index going from 11.2 to 9.7 tonight. Maybe I can reach one of my 2019 goals of single digit handicap. I have to say, I haven't implemented any of the LSW practice routines, or strategies, yet. I'm still reading through the book for the first time, but I think some of the stuff I'm reading is seeping into my game.
  10. Thanks @bkuehn1952 I'm hoping to follow it up with a 69 (my current age now). I was close last Thursday, shot a 72, but I couldn't get those 3 birdies to drop. Maybe I can do it shortly, since I just purchased Lowest Score Wins. It's supposed to be delivered tomorrow.
  11. Well, another 78 today (40-38). I just don't get it. It feels like I'm hacking the ball around, but for some reason I'm getting up and down consistently. We'll see what tomorrows game will be.
  12. 78 yesterday (40-38). On the tee in about 2 hours. We'll see if I can do better today.
  13. What a funny game. Yesterday, I couldn't do anything wrong. 3 bogeys, 3 birdies, and 12 pars for a 72. Todays round was a different story. Started out bogey, double, triple, bogey, for the first 4 holes, 7 over before even getting going. Ended up the front 9 with a 45. The back was a different story. Par, birdie, par, birdie, bogey, bogey, par, eagle, bogey for a 35. I wish I knew what I did to make that drastic a difference.
  14. Last 5 scores: Thurs: 78, Fri: 80, Sat: 75, Sun: 81, Mon: 81 and today it's raining, so the heck with it.
  15. 79 on Saturday, 80 on Sunday, and then shot a 75 yesterday. 15 pars, 1 birdie, and 2 double bogeys.
