Buddy Trip 2019

Post by jfurr » Tue Mar 26, 2019 1:16 pm

The annual golf buddy trip is coming up soon. Ryder cup format on the weekend (match play) and three days of hcp stroke play. Same format as previous years.

I haven’t swung a club in months, but really looking forward to the trip.

This year we have a beach house rented which is named “Del Boca Vista” :)

Working on our scorecards for the Ryder Cup weekend matches. I have them computer with the handicap strokes for each course.

This year we are going to the new Top Golf one night for dinner and I’m sure some kind of competition.

Playing like shit. Shot a 109 yesterday. The holes I hit GIR, I made par. Holes I had to chip, shot double, triple, quad bogey.

Today I worked 20 minutes before the round on chipping, but only made slight progress. All aspects of my game were bad today. Shot a 101.

I shot a 43 on my front nine, chipping practice is beneficial. Then things took a turn for the worst. I fucked up my elbow, like tennis elbow or golf elbow. Pretty damn painful. Ended up taking a quintuple bogey on my last hole which screwed me in the handicaps. I was probably in the lead before that.

Back to self medicating. Cheers.

Steady improvement.

BTW - I have a Trump National bag tag on my bag. I've been too lazy to take it off since I played there last summer. Don't judge.

I shot a 94, which included a quad bogey and quintuple bogey towards the end. I’m 6 strokes off the lead.

However the elbow hurts really bad. Hopefully I can make through.

53 at the turn. The pain was pretty bad at first, but I’m getting used to it. The problem is I guess fear of the shock of impact, I’m not taking a full swipe at it. Fanning slices or weird one handed hooks

Go to a drug store and buy the elbow brace that Doug talked about.

That thing works wonders. I went from pain when I gripped the club to barely noticing anything at all.

I made it through, but with less than normal swing or control. Pain got less noticeable as the round went on. Shot 53/47 and I’m 12 strokes back. No jacket for me this year.

Heading to the final round, actually elbow feels a lot better than yesterday morning and not as swollen so I’m happy. Gonna be good weather.

Felt good for much of today. Had a 42 at the turn, with two doubles, one birdie (chip in). On the back my overall game took a general downturn. Driver problems, some fat mid irons. Ended up with 93. Pretty sure not enough, though I might have moved up a few positions.

No elbow issues today, magically. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers

Good come back... especially with the elbow.
More importantly, did you have fun?
