It was a little hot but the course is in the best shape it's been in years. My short game is finally coming around which is really helping my scoring.

Best round of the year so far. Shot 5 over despite a 3 putt brain fart on the last hole. I hope I can keep this up for our scramble tournament in a couple weeks!

I got in several rounds at our campus 9 hole course this week. As usual I've been playing 2 balls for 9 holes and counting both to get in my "18". Driving has been pretty solid, my iron play is coming around and my putting is getting much better. Yesterday's round I hit several putts over 15 feet which really helps the confidence. I'm averaging around 7 over for "18" with a couple of birdies which is great for me but I still need to avoid the one or two brain fart holes that get me in trouble. I signed up for a scramble tournament in mid-August with several colleagues so I'm really looking forward to that.

I haven't touched my clubs in almost a month - too much traveling. Next week I'm headed for San Diego and I hope to get in a few rounds while I'm there. I used to love to play Torrey Pines but it has just gotten so expensive I can't afford it anymore but my nephew has a couple courses picked out that we will check out.

Played a 4 man scramble on Monday. 18 holes on a nice course near St. Louis. The weather was almost perfect, just a little windy. Our team was really on a roll and shot 10 under! I was hitting the ball really well which felt great and I even made a couple of clutch putts.

Had a great round for golf league today. Tomorrow is our regular day but I'm heading out of town so they let our team play our round a day early. We finally put it all together and shot 5 under for 9 holes! Woo Hoo. Our putting today more than made up for the two three-foot putts we missed last week.

My golf game left a little to be desired. I only had 2 par, 1 on front 9 and 1 on back nine. I did make some very unusual shots out of strange places though and I wondered how I did them. emoticon

We had a great round in golf league tonight, putting for birdie on all nine holes. We managed to make 3 of them. Unfortunately, we also missed two 3 foot par putts so we ended up at 1 under. Still, a good round that might move us into a tie for first place with one week left to go.

Shot a "75" yesterday. As I've mentioned before, we only have a 9 hole, par 35 course and I usually play after work so to get in 18 holes I play 2 balls and score them both. My short game and putting is finally starting to catch up with my ball striking which has been pretty solid so far. I lost my PW a couple weeks ago and I am finally getting used to my replacement. Golf league has been pretty good despite the weather. We got rained/snowed out the first three weeks but since then the weather has been good although this past week was a bit chilly. My team is hanging in there in second place with only two more weeks to go. Unfortunately, I'm going to have to miss the last week due to travel. I'm really looking forward to an outing coming up in STL in a couple weeks.

The fourth time is the charm. Our golf league was supposed to start 3 weeks ago but the weather just has not cooperated. We finally got underway this week. The rust really showed in our short game but my partner and I managed to scramble for an even par round for 9 holes..

We have had some crazy cold weather lately. Have not picked up the clubs in a month. So since Saturday we had a nice amount of warm weather. We decided to hit the driving range for our anniversary. We didn't have time for a round of golf.

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.

Haven't posted any scores for a while. I'm hitting the ball very well these days but scoring has been an issue. Monday I was on fire and only two over going into the last two holes (including a double bogey on the fifth hole) and proceeded to bogey the last two holes. Still my best round of the year so I'll take it. Shot an 80 on Tuesday at a course in St. Louis. Again, I was hitting the ball well but the greens were faster than anything I've played all year and just could not adjust leading to 3! three putts and missing some easy short putts. I did manage to figure things out and birdied 2 of the last 4 holes! Woo Hoo!

Great round!

Yesterday I played a charity scramble tournament at the local country club. First time I've played in such an event and had a great time. I hit the ball pretty well but a couple of real brain farts. We were putting for birdie on almost every hole but just couldn't get it it close enough to sink a putt and ended up 1 under. The winning team was 16 under!

Yesterday's BIRTHDAY round was a mixed review of my current talent status. played the 5,936 yd white tees in lieu of the 6,532 yd blue tees. in retrospect, the course sets up easier for me at 6,500 yds because more trouble came into play from the whites. Anyway, with the help of keeping my tee shots in play and some strong short play, I carded an 82. Need to work on my irons, especially from 150 to 100 yds in to the green.

Wednesday I played my first "real" 18 holes in a long time. A friend and I went to the local country club where we will be playing in a scramble tournament next Monday. It was a perfect day for golf and had a great time although my score was a disappointing 89. I hit the ball pretty well but my short game was poor and had multiple three putts. Got off to a pretty decent start but then had a really bad stretch of three holes where I was 8 over - mainly due to several brain farts. I may play the course again on Sunday with another member of our team.

Playing The Orchards Golf Club in Washington, Michigan today. Handicap is down to a 9.6 - lowest in about 4 years..... my new clubs paid off big time this season!

Played "18" (9 holes playing 2 balls) again on Sunday at the campus course. Shot an 84. I was hitting the ball pretty well but putting was atrocious. I also managed to hit back to back drives into the creek (hitting that new $25 3-metal a little too well) leading to two doubles.

78 for two trips around the local 9-hole course! My best round in quite a while. Missed two short birdie putts but hit a couple of lengthy clutch par and bogie putts which more than made up for it. What I'm most proud of though is NO DOUBLES!

82 for two rounds at the local 9 hole course. Finally broke down and bought a "new" 3-metal a few weeks ago and I'm loving it. Best $25 I ever spent emoticon . Gearing up for an outing at the local country club in a couple of weeks.

Only got nine holes in at The Orchards on Sunday - due to rain. Received a rain check for 9 holes. Shot a 43, but was happpy about scoring three pars and a birdie. The three double bogies I will write off to first round of the season rust.

So far this season, no golf. Just went through another weekend of temps in the 40's - way too cold for me to golf. Next weekend does not look any better. Last year at this time I had cut the grass three times already!

It was a beautiful day for golf league yesterday - first time I could wear short sleeves. For the most part I was hitting the ball pretty well but the first few holes I struggled with hitting it thin and flying the greens. The greens are still in rough shape so putting was not so hot. My right show also fell apart on the last hole so I'm going to have to go out and get a new pair.

Day 2 of golf league today. It was bit too chilly for my taste but I always enjoy the warm company of my colleagues. We played pretty well. Missed a couple of easy putts but the game is coming around. Not nearly as muddy as last week which helped.

First day of golf league. It was pretty rough but great to get out on the course. Extremely muddy - I almost lost several balls in the middle of the fairway because they were plugged. Finally got things on track the last three holes knocking it stiff for a birdie on the 7th hole and just missed a birdie on 9. Woo Hoo.

Last three rounds:
Shepherd's Hollow - 86
Lyon Oaks - 85
Plumbrook - 74 (yesterday)

Golf season here in Michigan is quickly comming to a close, only a few more days of playable weather left until our courses close for the winter - around mid-November.

Today was the last day of our golf league and the weather was perfect. Because of it getting dark early we all agreed to only playing 7 holes. My partner and I had a really solid round of even par with one three-putt bogey (uggh) and our first birdie in several weeks. We had a birdie putt on every hole but one and just couldn't get the ball in the hole. We ended up in 3rd place out of six teams which was pretty good for being the only two man team. The top two teams ended up playing with each other on the final day which made for a little added excitement. The eventual winning team shot 5 under for 7 holes!!

Managed to get in 9 holes this afternoon. It turned out to be a beautiful day to play. Played 2 balls to get in "18". Shot an 80 with a couple of birdies and a couple of doubles. Seems like ages since I've had a birdie. Even in golf league when there are two of us playing we haven't had a birdie in weeks. On one of the par threes I hit a sand shot that landed directly in the cup on the fly but popped out.

Wednesday it was typical Michigan fall golf - lots of leaves and aerated greens.
Scored an 87 at Shepherd's Hollow. I can only afford to play that course early spring or late fall.
