    Played last night. Had 6 holes in a row where I had par putt and couldn't make it. The last was the shortest (5 Ft). After that I posted triple bogey on the last hole. Lost concentration after failing to be rewarded.

    Earlier in the round there was a hole I won't soon forget. We had a sub playing in our group since my buddy is up in Minnesota fishing. He hit his ball to the right on a par 3. He is not that familiar with course and drove the cart into the rough to find his ball. The hole is a cart path only par 3. His route in was OK but when he came back he tried to drive through a small ditch. The real wheels dropped down under the mud and the cart was stuck. We tried to push it out but golf carts are very heavy. One member of the group suggested we turn the wheel and try to roll the cart up on it side. This worked to get one wheel up above the ditch but caused the other to sink deeper. So I went to the woods and found a couple of fallen tree branches. We rocked the cart up again and this time I stuffed the branch under the first wheel. We repeated the process for the other wheel. Then with all three pushing and giving the cart some pedal it popped out of the ditch. Rear was all covered in mud and he left a nasty scar on the ditch. Took us about 10 minutes to extract the cart. We all laughed about it afterwords.

    Had birdie chances on the 1st 6 holes Tuesday and not a single one went in. My buddy comes back from fishing in Minnesota and is rusty to start but birdies the 8th hole. I just can't get one to drop. I did shoot a 44 but had I made one or 2 of the birdies and avoided the triple bogey on 7 it could have been a great round.

    It was the last week of our golf league. However the new management at golf course didn't count any of the no shows during the year and our league is prepaid. So we found out we have another 32 rounds of 9 holes left to use. Free golf!

    Beautiful Day in Ohio. Took 1/2 day vacation from work and have 1:08 tee time today. Playing at the course where we have Tuesday league and using some of the left over money from unused league play.

    Weather was perfect yesterday. They recently aerated the greens at the course we were playing. Normally the greens are very tough. Right now they are brutal. If you don't land in the correct spot on the green you can easily be looking at a 3 putt. I had (3) 3 putts yesterday and one was from 5 ft. You have to hit it firmly and take out any break on those short ones. If it doesn't go in it will roll past 5 ft. If you try to guide it in the break will take it away from the hole at the last second. Very tough. Recently we have been having a separate competition on low putts because it is so difficult.

    Started off in trouble on the 1st hole and needed a great chip and 1 putt to save bogey. Played pretty well but had a couple ugly holes. One of them was an 8 on a par 4 on the back nine. The 8 culminated a stretch where I 3 putted three straight holes. After that there were 4 holes to go and I needed to bogey all 4 to break 100. Got the first 3 but then was in deep trouble on the last. Sitting in the sand trap and needing to get up and down to save my 99 round I was able to pull it off with a great sand shot and then drained a 7 ft putt to end the round. 1 putt to start and finish round. While 99 is above my handicap I was pretty happy considering the difficulty of the greens. We had several birdie opportunities but nobody was able to convert due to difficulty of greens.

    The best news of the day was since it is off season and after 1 PM they only charged us for 9 holes. So we have more free golf coming as long as weather stays like it has been. :)

    More free golf this past Tuesday. Missed a 30 ft birdie by half turn of the golf ball. Had it right on track it just ran out of gas. My birdie drought continues. I did shoot a 47 and beat everyone in the fore-some. :hump:

    Played some more free golf last night. Finally figured out the greens and limited my putting to 16 putts with only one 3 putt. Unfortunately I had 4 penalty strokes for errant shots on other parts of the course. Figures, figure out one part and another goes haywire. I did save bogey on the last hole despite penalty stroke and finished with 49. Could have been a decent round without the errant shots.

    4 of us played on Tuesday once again. We are trying to use up the last 200 plus dollars on our account before close of season. Our commissioner goes in and checks in with 4 golfers riding 9 holes. The guy in the pro shop prints him a starter ticket. Its for zero dollars and we still have all the money left. They must really like us at this course. :lol: We can't seem to use up the money.

    Going next Tuesday and playing 18. We'll see if they charge us then.

    Nothing too exciting in the simulator room today. Waiting on sheet rockers still, so I put up the all important drink rail, and started painting some of the exposed concrete.

    Something strange happened yesterday. My putter started working again and i had five pars in a row all due to it.

    I could not miss and two of them were from off the green and over 20 feet. Unbelievable considering how bad i usually putt. Finished with a 42 due to a couple doubles the first two holes. I'll take it :)

    It's amazing how good your score can be, when you start making putts huh?! Then you feel confident standing over each one, thinking you can make it.. Helps a ton! Great job!

    Looks amazing Danny. We expect your handicap to drop several over the winter. :lol:

    That should help your game but you still have to make those pesky putts. :confused:

    Bought an Etonics Cart bag and head covers the other day on Amazon. I had a small carry bag with stand that was falling apart and I always ride a cart. This one has the pockets in the right place for cart and has slots for every club. Of course I'll have the same bad habits. Golf league starts in 2 weeks.

    My best friend retires next year in January when he turns 62. So this will be the last year of golf league. At least for him. And without him there I'll probably get out of it and just golf when I get time and in the back yard.

    Got an invite from Dell to attend a new place called Top Golf in Cincinnati in a few weeks. It's like my chipping fairway at home but they have micro chips in the balls to give you instant computer scoring. And lots of bars and food. I guess they have them in Florida. anyone ever been to one?

    That sounds like fun :up:

    Great leader board for the Masters final round.
    Sergio , Rose , Ricky , Spieth , Adam Scott with Mc Elroy not far behind.

    This should be fun to watch :brewskis:
