First 9
« on: April 09, 2007, 09:03:48 AM »

My wife and I went out yesterday and played a quick 9, and following the trends of the last few years, my first round was actually pretty good.  I ended up shooting a 42 from the white tees with 2 birdies and 3 pars.  I usually shoot well my first round of the year; I have little expectations, and just concentrate on being smooth and making good contact with the ball.  If I could just stay in this frame of mind all year, I could probably shoot pretty well...but as it is, the next few times out, I will go back to trying to kill the ball, and taking stupid shots that I have a 1 in 100 chance of making.

A few things I noticed:
Once my swing gets dialed in, the Quad/Graman combo looks to be the one for me.
I didn't hit driver particularly well yesterday, I was real "handsy" resulting in low, boring shot that still carried extremely well.  I also noticed very little penalty on mis-hit shots.

Durometers:  These bastards have an incessant appetite for ball covers.  They spin like crazy, but they ruin balls before I even get a chance to lose them.

My course this year decided to forego green covers for the winter this year, opting instead to cover them with sand.  I have never seen greens in this sorry of shape.  I hope they go back to covers next year.

Anyway, I have equaled the amount of golf I played last year, and it's only April.  I hope to shatter that next Sunday when I will be playing 18. Shocked

Given that you've never seen how lousy I am, that's a bold guarantee.  Wink

Glad to hear you got out.

I fall into that same pattern and play really well after not playing for a while for the same reasons.

Well done campy.   Thumbs Up

Better get your golf in now before the big rush.  "Springtime in Evanston" ads are running on SLC radio.  LOL.   Grin

Grin I've heard the same ads, it's just a clever way of saying the liquor stores, the PrOn shop, and the fireworks stands are on full alert. Cool
