    I Hit the longest flat ground non cart path aided drive of my life today.



    Very firm. 10 mph breeze at my back. 496 yard par 5. Yes, short par 5. Absolutely hammered the drive. Had 128 yards to the pin. Baby gap wedge to 7 feet for eagle. Of course I missed the putt, but the 368 yard drive made it much less irritating.

    About 2 weeks ago I had my first hole out from a bunker for birdie. I was pretty stoked to say the least.

    We're in the process of packing to move across the country so I snuck out after work for one last round on my home track.

    Course was virtually empty and I got into some kind of zen groove. Was hitting my irons better than ever.

    Personal record on that course is 83, and I've shot 39 on the back twice.



    Ended up going out in 40, with just 13 putts (putter was on fire, thanks new claw grip!). Took an ugly triple 7 on the one hole where I ran into tree trouble.

    Back 9 started well, but I lost that "zen" feeling half way through the back and driver started getting a little wayward. Heavenwood saved the day though, getting me on or near the green from ~220 out on several occasions.

    Ended up shooting 41 on the back, after missing 2-3 good birdie chances.



    So a new personal best during my final round ever there, but left wondering at what could have been had I not taken that triple on #5 and the 3-4 missed birdie opportunities, not to mention the bogey on the easy short par 3 on the back.

    Never broken 80, and that round could have easily been mid-70s had I not made those stupid mistakes.



    Still...happy enough shooting 81 as a 15 cap, and it was nice to go out on a high note.

    First round for a month today, shot 84 which wasn’t too bad. Double bogey on 1st then nothing worse than a bogey on the other 17. Missed a load of putts too, had four that lipped out and another 5 or 6 that missed by a ball’s width. My driving was excellent.

    Hit the third shot in the water on one par 5 and the second shot in the water on the next par 5. Got up and down from 60 yards on both, saving a bogey and a par respectively on my way to a satisfying 75 from the back tees.

    Tied my lifetime personal best score today with my old classics in the bag. Played from 5529 yards (whites) but this course rewards accuracy and is PENAL in the rough (lose-your-ball kind of penal). 6 birdies and 2 bogies on the day. Iron play was beyond my normal ability - way beyond. Viva La Eye 2 irons!

    Today I did something I have never done before. It is one of those things that is hard to do, takes some skill to do it, but you never really want it to happen. I had more putts than full shots and both putts and full shots were less than regulation. Shot 69 with 35 putts. It almost felt great.

    Hit 16 greens in regulation on Sunday!



    Also hit 42 putts (8 3-putts!) blew up on one hole with a quadruple bogey for an 82.



    Can't be upset after a career ball striking day. Just a friendly reminder that I have to practice my putting consistenly or I will be terrible. Had practiced a decent amount in august and was putting the best I have in years. Thought I could pick up where I left off after a couple weeks of no practice and was reminded by the golf gods that's not how it works.

    I basically drove a 310y Par 4 Island green couple weeks ago in a scramble, I flew the water and it plugged in the mud a couple inches onto the island. We played the other ball because we thought I didn’t make it, but we then found it once we got out onto the green.

    Nothing spectacular numbers-wise, but played a short 9 (on a par 3) where almost everything other than two holes felt GREAT. Flushed irons, including the 5i I've been struggling with, and the Evnroll finally rolls the way it should. I've been having swing issues all season, and feel like I finally figured something out that works.



    Of course, it's also late-September in a place where the golfing season doesn't extend far into October, so there's that ...
