So excited to visit NoCal to play a bunch of golf this July. Also going to play Ridge Creek Dinuba in Central Cal, love that track.

GK Plays Yocha DeHe in NoCal is almost full. Finally after all these years going to check it out! What a gem.

Will get in some golf before the NoCal trip. Working on lining up some GK Guru rounds.

This month I should be announcing two new GK Plays outings coming up. September and December.

We got GK Cup 10 in full gear.

So much golf. Remember to post your reviews. Most of all have fun!

Looking forward to your posts here in the forums!

I'm pretty stoked to shoot an 81(41/40) yesterday at Hansen Dam. Look for my course review/rating because there is an issue with the greens. I played the fellow GKer, DKnight and his cousin, Phil.

I felt pretty strong driving the ball, although I only hit 5 fairways total (9, 10, 12. 13. 14) and 6 greens (6, 9, 12, 14, 15, 17). My only problems driving were pulling the tee shot on 11 (hacked my way to that green in four shots, resulting in double bogie) and popping up my drive on 16.

That shot almost went into the lake, but I was able to make bogie after hacking my way across the lake, up the slope, then two putting.

My other double-bogie came at 8 where after I hit a good drive, then air-mailed the green into the back sand trap, bladed my sand shot, chipped on, and two-putted.

I had a couple good highlights, making par on 9 and birdie on 17.

Hole 9: I hit a good drive to about 184 from the pin, then hit 5 iron up onto the green. If you know this hole it is a very long, uphill par 4.

Hole 17: Par 3 into a two club wind. I hit a knock-down 6 iron that landed about 8 feet right of the pin and slightly behind. Read the break nicely and drained my only birdie of the day.

No penalties and no 3-putts!

I always have a good time playing golf and am even happier to share a good score on this post!

Nice going Kevin!

Birdies on 17 always feel great. Sure make that last tee shot on 18 comfortable.

Balboa Park, 93, adjusted 90 I, just, don't, get it? I started off hitting the ball exactly how I wanted . . . then the wheels didn't start coming off, they just disappeared, evaporated, it's like someone snuck up and turned the switch off when I wasn't looking. Then, birdie, birdie (6, the long, uphill par 3 and 7 the short par 5) then I went all Roberto Duran again, hands of stone. Ended up going 42 . . . 51? Balboa Park, once considered the friendly confines, is now my kryptonite.

Here are my last few scores . . . how do I score better at all these places than at Balboa Park?

07/02/17 Balboa Park Golf Course 90
06/25/17 Torrey Pines Golf Course (North) 82
06/18/17 Balboa Park Golf Course 93
06/11/17 Talega Golf Club 82
05/28/17 The Golf Club of California 86
05/21/17 Torrey Pines Golf Course (South) 87
05/14/17 Arrowood Golf Course 79
05/07/17 PGA WEST (Nicklaus Tournament Course)88
04/30/17 Rams Hill Golf Club 84
04/09/17 Torrey Pines Golf Course (North) 83
04/02/17 San Vicente Inn & Golf Course 85

QUOTED  Good stuff Kevin! Keep up the good fight! Were you nice to the cart girl?

Thanks, Rat!

Unfortunately, Hansen Dam does not have a beverage cart. As long as I can remember they have never had one.

BTW, those ARE some crazy scores, Rat. Really good scores at tougher courses, but not so good at your regular course. Interesting.

91 @Sierra Star on Sat. Everything was great except the putting. I had FIVE 3 putts. Greens were just coming out of dormancy after the very snowy winter and they were extremely fast.

Know any good witch doctors, Rat? You may need to sacrifice a chicken or something at midnight on the 18th green.

Torrey South . . . pretty similar score to Balboa, but on a much tougher course. 47-47=94 Started with a rare par on the 420 yard into the wind par 4 with a great snake downhill putt after a layup and wedge punch shot approach to 10'. Dead solid perfect drive on 2 to just outside 100 yards, pulled SW bogie. Then a streak of 3 doubles, on 4 after another dead solid drive 3w from 2-something to 20 yards right of green, hack, hack, hack finally on the green 20' away. I hit a few great drives yesterday putting me in great spots that I didn't capitalize on and the real killer for the day was the thick, thatched rough around the greens! 33 putts mostly due to being too far from the hole after chip "attempts".
Still some solid tee balls, just a lack of total focus and inability to get up and down killed my score. Nothing more disappointing to hit drives distances and to places I rarely see to give it all away with inaccurate approaches and a feeble short game. You can't get cute out of the green side rough and then you start having 20 footers.
