Played this morning and started off with a double bogey then a bogey and was able shoot an 82, best round yet!
Shitty part was we played skins and I beat the other three guys who shot 87, 88, and 87 and ended up paying all of them!

Played emerald canyon in Parker this week with @riverlynchmob. Course is in solid shape. Leaving for Cabo this week on Wednesday and we’re scheduled for Cabo Real and Cabo Del Sol courses.

Feeling a bit stiff this morning after 36 holes yesterday.
Walked 18 with my buddies in the morning, then took a cart for 18 with wife and another couple.
Did not get to play much last year with Covid and some health issues, but ready to get back at it.
Was so great to be on the course again, even won $15. Big payday!

Reading some of this gave me an idea for a movie to watch. Torn between Caddy Shack, Happy Gilmore and Tin cup. Hmmmm

What’s the trick to get on that early? I tried booking it for next Saturday and the men’s league had the first 2 hrs booked up…. Those bastards 😂
It’s kinda bull shit because they play every Saturday….. like dudeyou live there full time so play on a Friday and leave the Saturday tee times for the weekend warriors.

They would have let you book the tee time before the men’s club, however I already have it booked 😂 We have two 4 sums teeing off at 5:30 and 5:45 next Saturday, Sorry waffles!!! If anyone bails and we have an open spot I will let you know 👍🏻

I can not golf.
Im built more for shot putt. Lol

BUT...my short game is bad ass.
Croquet champ, putting green hero, putt putt golf pro.
Throw the ball on the green anywhere and I’ll bet my paycheck against anyone...getting there is where I fail miserably.

Hit my best score 3 weeks ago at 74 with a 3 putt par. Played a few days later and popped my groin so have been taking time off.

Not even, it just has been my experience that many who boast about their golf prowess usually have none.😉😁😁
My golf talent is described perfectly in the thread title

My short game(100yds and in) some days is great, usually when the long game is crappy and vice-versa when I can hit my driver straight. It's a rare occurrence that they both are working. Generally, by time a get around to the 13th/14th my back is jacked anyhow so at that point I tend to survey a lot of the course. Lol, at least I know where most of the snakes hide out😁
Long putts I am ok but I have a serious yip problem on the short 3-4 footers.....🤨

79 at Emerald is a good score. A 78 at that Fullerton course, not so much. That Fullerton course has a bunch of par 3s. Looks like par for the course is only 68?
Yup! I just started golfing last year hence the thread title 😜

Walked a round at Chula Vista Muni two weeks ago. Shot 38 on the front, looking good... then I carded a 7 for 10, 11 and 12. :( 👎 :mad: Finished OK, but not like the day started. LOL

Got my ass kicked at Glen Ivy in Corona today. 1st time playing there, it plays well but man the rough was thick. I could not get my drives under control, just spraying all over. They were either Money or gone. Had at least 12 penalty strokes and shot 96. Plus is was one of those days where you know your ball should be in a certain area and its just GONE!

Still had a good time but sucks to shoot in the 90s lol.

That place is just plain mean. Played it when i was hitting the range and playing on a regular basis. The fairways were tough to hit and the greens were like asphalt.
They have some of the hardest greens I’ve ever played! Excellent course for the money and the location.

Have you played Black Gold in Yorba Linda. I was in the men's club for many years. Those greens are hard and fast. Tight fairways.

I have not played there yet but I’m itching to. I told myself I need to play better golf before I hit the big boy courses.

Great course. Played it quite a bit with some co-workers before they went to the competition. :oops: Bought a Ping 2 hybrid just for that place. Balls disappear in bunches out there.
