Like I said, I'm jealous, Phil, GBogey, King, whatever you'd like to be called. You are the #1 seed here! My respect, sir. :up
I've still a ways to go to match your 4.5 index.

Don't go by the Grint. My real index sits at 4.9 and I haven't entered an official score all month due to injury and playing a lot of solo rounds. It's more like 5.5 by now. Maybe higher.

Like it or not, you're the King. I bow to you. All hail the King!

Shot 97. Still struggling mightily with irons/wedges. Need more practice time to work things out. I did have an eagle and a birdie which eased the pain a bit.

+7 at beachside pitch/putt yesterday. Not a bad score considering how ocean breezy it was out there. But score schmore. Noticeable ball flight improvement with full wedge swings, even the 60 degree, even into the wind. :thumbs

Shot a mediocre 86 at Windmill yesterday. Played the back better than the front because I smoothed out my swing and found more fairways.
Throw me another ball will ya!

Shot 87 (40/47) with a birdie. Short game slowly improving, putting is actually pretty decent now. Still trying to get comfortable over the ball with irons, been tweaking my setup a little bit (front foot was too flared out at address), also working on slowing down my swing tempo.

I have had a mini recovery from what seems like a 2 year slump. Shot a 78 at my "home" course today. https://clubsg.skygolf.com/golfers/scor ... Selector=0

I started slow and did not have good feel for the greens and the chipping speeds. Eventually I got in a groove. By the turn it had become very windy. While I missed a lot of greens, the misses were close and I had relatively simple chips. I do not recall ever parring every hole on a nine.

There may be some hope left for me. :yess

You need to go for the perfect 9 - 7 fairways, 9 GIRs, all pars or better - almost did it once. Missed the last fairway by 5 feet. No birds though.

So bad, so good.

How bad was my putting today? Seven good looks at birdie, only one birdie. Three 3 putts, two of them ugly from only 25 feet putting uphill. Argh!

How good was my ball striking? 15 GIR's with 7 good looks at birdie, and with the 3 misses coming from a bad wedge (but only one of many), a 6i that came up 5 yards short with a big gust of wind after I hit, and a beautiful hybrid from 185 after my only bad drive that ran low and hard under a tree but then off the back of the green.

+4 74 - very good and satisfying but felt like I left a few out there.

I feel that I have to remind you that I’m typically playing a 6050 yard par 70 114 slope. My 74 is comparable to Doug’s 78/79. Regardless my play has been really strong the last six weeks and that’s with sub normal putting. Don’t know if this is the “mother of all hot streaks” or if I am mysteriously improving.

I will say this- playing a low slope course has taught me a lot about how to play. Not something I would have expected.

91. Was pretty good off the tee and not too bad on irons but had a number of chunked and skulled chips again. On #17 one of my buddies said my short game is that of an arthritic gorilla. It's really infuriating.

For example: 194 yard par 3. I hit a 5 iron very nicely to the left side of the green on the fringe which was exactly what I was aiming for to avoid the bunkers and sucker pin on the right. Should be a simple matter of chipping over to the hole and hopefully making a par put. I walked off with double. This happened several times, rather than up and down for par walking off with double.
