Played 18 at a casino-owned course. Shot a 103 with three pars. Finally broke 50 on the front nine and to celebrate I notched a 10 on the 10th hole.

45-43-88. No birdies, 2 double bogeys. 67.8/126/5625 yards.

Another bogeyfest. Ball striking inconsistent, chipping and pitching notably bad today, putting horrendous. After this weekend's miserable performance this particular putter is getting benched. It had a good debut but it was embarassingly bad the last two days.

I bought a couple of boxes of them stripe balls and they are terrible to find if you hit them in the rough.

Interesting and tense match in our singles bracket yesterday.

Gave my opponent 6 strokes. Shot par on the front (double 1, birdie 8/9) but only was up 2. I then battled massive pull-hook drivers on the back and hit three OB teeshots. Fell back to all-square heading into 17 where he stroked, maybe the pressure finally got to him but he hit two bad tee shots on 17/18 and I managed to squeeze out the 1-up win when he missed a 6 footer to win on 18.

42 (par 35). 1 birdie, 2 double bogeys.

Started out rough with two 3 putts from short range in the first three holes. A couple lousy pitches. And then it got better. Chipped in for birdie on 7, lipped out a birdie putt on 8, just missed a par putt on the tough 9th.

Tonight was a nice reminder that I can pick up good thoughts etc from playing with better players. My opponent was scratch and made the game look easy. Just watching him allowed me to smooth out a few kinks in my swing. Of course I was still outdriven by 100 yards (seriously) a couple times.

Scored an invite to Cherry Hills today. Played my ass off and 76. Fun times, not an easy course at all. I learned that 17 is the oldest island green in the country. I also learned that the highest score in a US Open was a 19 on the 16th hole in 1938.

Charity scramble today, -7 good for a mid-pack finish. Winners were -13 (same as last year, we were -5 last year).

Overall pretty happy with how I played, didn't hit any truly awful shots. Short game was above average, even putted acceptably.

41-43-84 (par 36-37-73). No birdies, no double bogeys. 69.7/129/6,057 yards

Miss green, hit decent chip or pitch, miss putt. Rise, repeat. Ugly golf.

suppressing >5 numbers is a confident stride towards lower scores

66 -3 today
1 Bogey
4 Birdies

Not sure where it came from. This is a easy course but still I've been struggling with golf pretty badly for about 2 months now. I could only put 9 holes together then just have some blow up hole. Think as of recent the lowest I've scored is about 74-76.

Oh good friend of mine also won his club champs the other week and a decent golf club near me filled with some decent golfers.

I've seen this guy work so hard on his game more so this past winter. He is a skinny guy so wasn't the longest hitter but worked on a lot of speed training and was starting to get the ball out there. In 2018 he was a 3 handicap and got down scratch and has been bouncing around that level for a number of years now.


The club champs was played last weekend 36 holes over 2 days. The wind was blowing pretty hard that day however, he managed to get it round in -2 which was pretty insane. The nearest person to him after the 1st day was +3.

2nd day like the 1st was pretty windy but a little less. However, they had a bit of rain to deal with. He had a nervy start. 1st hole is a 320 yard par 4 fairly easy. Can hit a driver or a longish iron and the miss is right as left is dead and you have the world to the right. He took iron off the tee duck hooked left in some crap. Played a provisional and did exactly the same. Played another provisional and put it in the fairway. Fortunately he found his 1st one and made par. Next hole made a Eagle on a Par 5 which the green is pretty protected by water and tree's so you need to put it into the right place to go for it in 2 and even then it isn't the easiest to get to. Unfortunately after that he went bogey bogey. Rest of the round 2 birdies and 2 pars to shoot a level par round.

He won by 5 shots. He is now a +2 handicap. Fully deserved and so happy for him.

43-40-83. 1 birdie, no double bogeys. 70.3/133/6,100

Eight bogeys and a birdie on the front, it was like clockwork. Played better the last few holes.

43 (par 36). 1 birdie, 1 double, 1 triple.

Some ugly Tuesday night golf. Pretty much everything was bad. The highlight was definitely sinking a 25 footer for birdie on the last hole.
