Got a little 9hole practice in last night, and it was encouraging again. I shot a +2 with two birdies, 5 pars, a bogey and a triple.

The driver, although not long, was in play all day. You can see the improvements below (the one bunker led to the +3). Looking forward to my next 18, hopefully next Monday.

41/37=78. 4th 78 in the last five rounds. The other was an 80, when playing with CeeBee last Saturday. Feeling good right now.

Bogeyed the first hole, and then made par on the next six! That was fun. I played okay, not great but I guess the bad shots are getting better, that's what it's all about right. Sure. I realized today that my course swing is different from my range swing. I try to steer the ball and I don't release hard into it. Short game was promising. On the back nine I got very annoyed with everything and fought with myself internally. I stopped paying attention to the score towards the end. Had to grind and scrape and hole a ten footer for bogey on the last to squeeze out a 79. It is kind of a bogus breaking 80 because Silver Lake is par 70. But it will have to do. It's the first one in almost two years. The realization of how much time was lost trying to find a swing, is hitting me now. Excuse me while I go yakk. :puke

Thanks man! I've been hovering there for what feels like forever; usually shooting 81-84. I just can't seem to turn the corner.

Played 4 again this morning. Shot +1. Hit some terrible tee shots off #1 and #2. Both into the giant red X on that hole. Somehow made some all-world pars.

#1 blocked driver into the right woods. Ricocheted off a tree into the right rough about 195 yards out. Hit 5i to 30' off a down hill lie from the rough and 2 putted
#2 over corrected the driver. Snap hooked it into the left trees. Punched out and had 256 to the hole. Hit a good 3w but pushed it well right of the green. Hit my pitch to 7' and rolled that in for par.

#8 I pulled my 6i left of the green, chipped to 4' and pushed the putt.
#9 I pulled driver a touch (5-10 yards left of my perfect line) I had a tree preventing me from going for the green so I laid up. Hit a GW to 5' and again pushed that putt.
Keep it short stupid.

I played yesterday. Had a decent ball striking round but short game woes on a few holes did me in. 82. Started the day double-double. Admittedly the short shots I attempted were low percentage. It was just a casual round so my hope is I will be smarter in the next tournament.

Up until the other day I haven't had an eagle since October of '15. Then on Wed played nine and eagled hole 5 at Worthington. :thumbs

I have been striking the ball lousy for some time with the irons but I am seeing some big improvement over the last few rounds. Nothing even close to the fiasco playing with DougE .

I left work at lunch with anal glaucoma, told my boss the cure was a round of physical therapy. Got out at 1:30ish. Bogeyed three, chipped in for bird on 5. Doubled 12 and 14. Lipped out birdie chip on 16 after 45 minute delay (par 3) two chipped for bogey on 17, birdied 18 for a +4 76. Wheeeeeeeeeeeee :ohyeah

Best differential, shot a 75 from a set of tees closer. Scary thing is, I played the same course this morning, and for the first time ever, I posted consecutive rounds in the 70s with a 78.

RTJ Capitol Hill (Senator) 6/30/2017 4 3 5 4 4 4 3 5 4 5 4 6 3 6 4 3 6 3 76 70.9 126 4.6

RTJ Capitol Hill (Senator) 7/1/2017 4 2 3 4 8 5 3 7 4 5 4 5 3 4 4 4 5 4 78 70.9 126 6.4

Today, I just missed a bomb on 1, birdied 2 and 3, and missed birdie on 4 by two inches. Tripled and doubled the par 5s on the front, so +5 on the 5s and +1 on the rest. Have not missed an iron shot for two days. Also has 12GIRs today.

Played 4 holes again this morning. Shot -1. I really wish 4 hole golf was a thing. I think my handicap would be close to scratch. I think I'm +1 or +2 over the last 28 or 32 holes.

Hit every shot except 1 solid. Hit 2 3ws into the 2 par 5s. The first was from 269 and wound up nearly pin high right of the green. The 2nd was from 258 and had to carry 225 yards of water. I blocked it a little but wound up just short right of the green, in a pseudo bail out area (still 220+ to carry the water on that line due to the angle the FW comes into the green from). Got up & down on the 1st one and made 3 other pars. With a great up & down on the par 3, really tricky pitch that I got to 4'.

I really need to work on my putting, but I can't figure out a good way to practice it. I can putt really well on the practice green but when I go 15 min between putts I guess my brain can't function well.

Ugh very depressing +1 this morning. I'm not sure if that is a good thing or not.
Hole 1 I lip out a 15' birdie putt
Hole 2 I lip out a 7' birdie putt
Hole 8 up & down after my 4i just cut through the headwind
Hole 9 after some tree trouble I had 164 dead into the wind to a pin that is 3 paces over the front edge. I pulled 5i trying hit a high ballooning cut where the wind would knock it straight down. I hit the shot well didn't get as much cut/balloon effect as I wanted but thought it was good. I then see the ball land over the green. I immediately dropped a ball and hit a 6i exactly like I wanted high cutting balloon. The ball landed 2' short of the pin and rolled out 4' leaving me a 2' putt. I wasn't able to get up & down on the 5i, but made the birdie w/ the 2nd ball.

Very frustrating that I feel I could have walked off after 4 holes 4 shots better the putts on #1 and 2 were good putts, and if I just picked the right club on #9.

Funny thing, I played w/ another guy during the first 2 holes. He hit the ball all over the place, we both walked off those holes at E.

Tied my 2nd best ever today with a 73. Very solid rounds, 12 putts on the back nine. Can't complain because I made more short putts than I missed, but I did miss 3 5 footers, two of which did 360's before lipping out, so it easily could have been an all time low of 71.

Round came at a good time. I had 4 straight 81's at my home course and for the first time ever my home course handicap (if such a thing existed) is higher than my away handicap. I was beginning to question my game, but today obviously brought me to a good place.
