Buying a second set of clubs, tired of hauling them back and forth from CO to CA. What are you guys playing with? I’ve got Ping irons and Big Bertha driver about 12 years old.

The sheep are cool. Hard to beat being on a course. 10 years ago I had zero interest in golf father in law gave me his old clubs 3 years ago took me almost a year before I hit a range.
Now enjoy it.

My dad and I both got full bag PXG, crazy deals.

Played Superstition Springs in Mesa today, horrible pace of play but I had one of the best shots of my life. Good drive then a miracle 3wood to here to give me my closest ever look at eagle.

The driver was a big change in my game.

Nice 👍 on line looking for a place to play this weekend. Should be easy since I’m a single

Next week I have a three day tournament. Gonna wear me out I bet.
Motrin and stretching is your friend. If you have Instagram check out Shaun diachkoff. He has some pretty cool stretches that are golf related. My flexibility is pretty bad. They seem to help out.

Alright boys day two and time to turn the heat up!

We’re T60 at +3 and only five strokes off the lead.

Modified Chapman so i need to be strategic about getting my pops on the first putt since I’m apparently putting with Thor’s hammer.

Late to the thread; just seen it.

Got to play El Dorado down in Felipe over Memorial Day. We take the families and hide down there to avoid the MDSS on the water.

Beautiful course for being in the desert and on the beach, hot, humid and hungover. Started at sunrise over the Sea of Cortex which was nice. Shot an 86 and delay I earned every shot!

Definitely a must if you can while your south of the border.

I have been wondering about the condition of El Dorado in San Felipe. This is great to see real pics. It looks in decent shape. Google satellite photos show it pretty brown...

The three day Member-Guest tourney at El Camino was pretty fun. Thursday was a practice round. Got into a little trouble on two holes and blew what would have been a really good round for me, still shot an 89. The greens there are wicked fast and flat spots are rare. If you aren't a regular, good f*cking luck. Pin placements were brutal too. A downhill putt would slide a few feet extra, or sometimes 10 feet extra.

Friday we played two man teams in flights. We played three 9 hole matches, went 13-5, 12-6 then a squeaker 10-8 against a couple great golfers from New York. Saturday we pushed the first match 9-9 then barely won the second 10-8. This put us in first place for our flight.

Then my partner tells me about the playoffs. There's freaking at least a hundred people now watching us tee off, approach, chip and putt out. I had never played in front of so many people. It was crazy. Like a pro am or something. Being this was a total surprise to me, I was kind of freaked out. I didn't pull my weight on these sketchy fast greens, so we didn't get too far in the playoffs. It was still fun though.

Most of the members know each other, so the heckling was heavy.

#5 tee box at Willowick. Thx Gavin for inviting the “unhoused” across the world to our once lovely state.

I believe this is the oldest course in the OC and it’ll be gone soon.

They're back? They had them cleaned out a few months back when I was there.

I was worried that place would go even further downhill with the news of the upcoming closure. Its a bummer because it could be a fun course.

Great to the parents and grand parents out supporting the girls. Lots of time put into those young athletes.

Westin Firecliff Course. Went in the Pro Shop to check in at 2:00 he said I was Brave to go out. 110 degrees! 😳
Someone else was Brave, only saw 1 other cart out there. Literally ran out of gas around the 15th hole playing 2 balls a hole.

Golf is a weird game. I actually kept score in Bakersfield this week since I was playing fairly decent. Come back to LR where we play all the time and my game implodes. Stopped keeping score on the 2nd hole today:(
Is that the par 5 with the ravine😳

If I start good I may keep score but otherwise I don’t. I just know If I sucked or did good. Easier to have fun that way.

Played the Westin Mountain Course the next day, mid-'90s with a nice breeze was a lot more tolerable, and played much better. then the day before. $47.00 both days, can't beat the price, just a wee bit warm.
