  1. Well, it is Father's Day, so I had to go out and play. Like I need an excuse. Started out with 13 straight pars, then a bogey crept in, par on 15, double on 16, and finished off with pars for a 36-39, 75 total.
  2. After an ugly 84 yesterday, came back with a 74 (38-36) today. 2 bogeys in the front, a bogey and birdie in the back. 14 pars. 13 GIRs.

  4. Umm, what did your playing partners think about that? 🤣
  5. 83 yesterday. Not much to say about that round. Today was a 78. A tale of 2 sides. Front was a nice 1 over, 37. 2 birdies, 3 bogeys, and 4 pars. Started the back with a birdie, then not sure what happened, but finished with a 41 with 2 double bogeys.
  6. 78 yesterday (38-40). Only 1 birdie and that was on the last hole. Today was a much better 74 (37-37). 3 birdies, 10 pars, and 5 bogeys.
  7. 76 today (38-38). 1 birdie, 12 pars, 5 bogeys. I'm trying to work on my timing (tempo). For some reason, I've gotten very fast in my backswing and downswing. I keep trying to slow it down, but that just throws off any tempo that I have. Been to the driving range the last 2 mornings with music, trying to swing to a tempo. Seems to have helped a little in today's game.
  8. One of the things I hadn't seen mentioned here is location. When I was in Wisconsin, I looked at joining a private club. Then sat down and realized I'd have to pay my monthly dues, and F/B minimums during the winter months. While money may be no object, I just couldn't see spending money and getting minimal value from it. Also, once you get into the equity type of membership, and they need to build a new clubhouse, watch for the assessments.
  9. 77 today, 2 birdies, 11 pars, 3 bogeys, and 2 doubles. Maybe tomorrow will be better.
  10. 75 today. 2 birdies, 1 bogey, 13 pars, 2 double bogeys. The doubles were totally my fault. Going for a green on a par 5 that I couldn't have reached with my best shot, and a 2 foot tap in that I just walked up to a swiped at it. I vow to play smart golf starting tomorrow.
  11. Memorial Day was an uneventful 77. Yesterday was a different story. Started out double bogey, bogey, double bogey, and started wondering if I was holding the right end of the club. Settled down after that, and knocked in the next 13 pars, bogeyed 17, and then par on 18 for a 78. After the first 3 holes, I figured I'd have a 90's day. Never give up!
  12. I was invited to a private club once. I wasn't sure of the protocol, and offered to pay my way. I was told that no cash passes hands at the club. Everything must be signed for by the member. I tried to buy drinks, but the same rule applied. I did offer to reimburse the member, but the offer was declined. I did take him and his wife out for a nice dinner shortly thereafter.
  13. 77 yesterday, and just finished this mornings round with an 80.
  14. Back to my home course yesterday. Shot an even 80 (40-40). No birdies, 12 pars, 4 bogeys, and 2 double bogeys. I was stupid and went for a par 5 in 2, and pushed my second shot OB. I'll have to rethink my approach on that hole.
  15. Had the opportunity to play Dubsdread Golf Course in Orlando today. The greens were like billiard table fast. I just couldn't get the speed down, not to mention just trying to keep the ball on the greens on the approach shots. Ended up shooting an 88. 2 birdies, 5 pars, 4 bogeys, 5 double bogeys, and 2 triple bogeys. I think I 3 putted at least 5 of those greens. But, I did like the course, and had a fun time.
