Golf Club Reviews and Discussions
Michael and I played with our friend and a random single, since our friend's son had to play very early to get home for something. We had gone to the range on Friday afternoon and I hadn't worked out my hybrid woes, so I was a bit uncertain how things would go and contemplated sticking with irons. The good news is it came around as the round progressed, I hit some good hybrid shots on the back 9, actually on #9 I hit my 5h over the pond and made the green, which was a relief. Did a bit of scrambling, my putting back on track, 33 putts. Had 4 GIR and 4 pars. Conditions were firm and fast, which favors me with my straight (usually) drives, since I have top spin they rolled a lot. Greens were pretty hard, no ball marks, had to play short and bounce/roll up or risk rolling off. Wound up with a 92, considering one dunked ball/penalty, I am satisfied since I felt I made some improvement. I made par on #18, a par 5, which was very satisfying (driver, 4h, 7i, 2 putts).
It's not how...it's how many
Forgot to mention...since we have been leaving the flagstick in the hole 99% of the time, in yesterday's round there was one putt by our friend that was definitely bumped out of the hole by the stick. It was sitting sort of leaning within the hole, the wind was moving it a bit, and had it been pulled his ball would have dropped (side door), since it was going pretty slow the stick just pushed enough to divert it. I told him I gave him that putt
Nice Aimee. Sounds like getting out if starting to take some of the rust off. I hope I can play this week...back had been acting up...did a chiropractor this week..a couple more appts next week but hoping to get out next week.....
Golf is a game that can only be played...
Walked 9 for the first time in a few weeks. Back has been on the fritz lately. Overall pleased with the way it turned out. very windy day..didn't really keep score as it was busy and I took some chip shots around the green and rehit some fairway approach shots. DId have a birdie and a few pars with some other thing mixed in. Hit a few good iron shots and most of my drives were playable so all and all, happy with how it turned out. The back and legs are feeling it today a bit but it's all good.
Michael and I took a lesson Saturday, this is someone he saw last season and really liked, he's almost an hour away, but its a good facility. I was able to actually do some bunker work. Playing the day after a lesson is always hit or miss (literally). I got out of a greenside bunker well, thanks to the lesson. We played our links style course, fortunately I missed most of the bunkers, did go into a couple in the fairways, mixed results. Shot an 89, 5 GIR, 5 pars, 36 putts. They had aerated the back nine recently so most of the greens were fair to poor, hard to putt well. I really just blew two par 4's with 7's, otherwise got around pretty well, the other holes were bogeys. Really have to find some time to practice or the lesson was a waste of time.
