Looking forward to your posts!

Fall Golf in California. Love it. Indian Summers in NorCal. Might make another visit up there. Also great golf weather and condition in Las Vegas. For sure will make a drive out there. Looking at a quick stop in Palm Springs for a round or two. Also looking to get down to San Diego for a round or two. That's my wish list at least!

Okay, breaking 100 should not be anything to rave about, but when you've played a Senior PGA Championship course numerous times from the blue tees and never done it, well, I'm celebrating a wee bit now because I finally got it done at Colorado Golf Club. No, not always pretty but avoided MAJOR blowups on all but one hole and came in with a 98 to finally break the streak. Now it's time to come back next year and break 90!

I had been on a bit of a hot streak of late. My last ten rounds have been sub 90 with seven of those being 85 or less. Yet none under 80
With 16 pars and 3 birdies in my last two rounds, I was ready to really challenge my game. Played Black Horse which has the toughest greens ANYWHERE. Unfortunately the wedges and putter weren't up to the challenge. Shot a 93, with 42 putts.

Was having a pretty decent round at a very tough Black Gold from the blues last Sunday and of course couldn't get past the final hurdle to keep it sub-90. Was pretty good off the tee for much of the day but still managed to screw up some holes on the front 9 and came in with a poor 47. Kept it a bit tighter on the back 9 and got myself to the 18th tee box just 5-over on the back after a chip-in birdie on 16 helped. Hit my drive into the wilderness on the right side of the fairway, found the ball, dropped, chunked into a cactus, dropped again, fairway, layup, green, 3-putt … total? A 10 on 18. Took me up from a potential 88 with a par or 89 with a bogey to a 93. Pants. Oh well, still one better than my best there, so I guess that's progress.

Played the Champions Course at Tukwet Cyn last Saturday. It was raining during the round with some breeze and it was also raining the night before making the course very soggy. The back problem didn't help. 40/44

After one of my longest layoffs from golf in almost 2 years, 3 weeks, I went out and played Oak Creek GC in Irvine CA. I am not normally one to go to the driving range to warm up but after 3 weeks it seemed like a good idea.

Normally my driver and putter are first to go when it comes to time off and luckily my driver was better than ever. However the putter was ice cold. I had 8 birdie opportunities and didn't make a single one. I did however have 6 three putts on the day and 38 putts overall!

I was consistent though shooting 44-44. The back nine was much better until hole 18 where I found the tree's and water on the same hole for a 7.

I hope to get out again next weekend as the first part of November I have 2 more weddings to go to.

Not sure if many of you follow any YouTube golf accounts, but I follow one called Golf Sidekick and he talks about a 6-6-6 system to breaking 80, as opposed to the traditional 11 pars/7 bogeys outcome-based method. The 6-6-6 system is more process focused, and leaves more room for error while getting better results. Essentially, it's looking to snag six greens, six up & downs, and six other holes you give yourself a break on. So I tried to adjust my mindset last weekend at El Prado (Butterfield Stage) and the results were pretty good.

Of course, I take all this with a grain of salt. Doesn't matter if you have a plan if your swing that day does not allow you to execute the plan. Keep duffing chips, blading bunker shots or shanking drives, and no system in the world is going to save your score. But if you're playing well, it does seem to have merit from a mental perspective. But enough about that and onto the round itself.

Played the front nine pretty well with a 3-over 39. I tried to stay very focused on greens and if I did come up short, get that up and down. I doubled hole 4 after a great drive and subsequent duff of a wedge, but came back strong the next hole and birdied it with a chip in from just off the green. Proceeded to find fairways and greens after that for a nice start.

The back nine was a little less fortunate as my drives and approach play were not as crisp but I was chipping well enough to leave me a lot of good putting opportunities. Still found myself on the bogey train though and managed a 6-over 42 on the back to shoot 81 overall. And that was actually even better than it should have been as I putted very well with a total of only 24 putts for the round. And even then could still not break 80 again!

Golf is hard. But I will keep trying out this system even if it is more mental than physical. Need every bit of help I can get.
