Meeting this morning with regulatory people from our State water office. The guys went off #1 without me at 9:00. Meeting finished up just as they were making the turn. Joined them as they teed off on #10. Even par with 2 birds and 2 bogies on the back 9. Won 75 cents!!! Best 9 holes I've played in a couple weeks.

Still playing good this morning. With cold weather, etc. we're not keeping score. Just keeping tack of "tics" in our games. Won another 75 cents.

70 and sunshine in mid November. 54 when we went off #1 this morning. Low this morning was higher than some of the high temps this past week. Every single tee time booked at our course until 3 p.m.!!
To top off the great weather, won $1.25 from the geezers.

Another beautiful day. Probably the last for a while. A little cold won't stop us from playing, though.

Have been playing so much better. Was really in a bad funk for a couple weeks. 37 on the front and 38 on the back this morning. Won another $1.00 from the guys.

Leaves are really bad on the course. Crew tries to keep them mulched, but difficult to keep up. So easy to lose a ball in the fairway. Miss a fairway and forget it!!! So, this is the time of the year to bring out the Top Flites, Noodles, etc. Three days ago, I found a Vice Soft. Could of cared less if it found its way back under some leaves. Three full rounds and the thing is still working. Must be scared of the dark under the leaves.

Strong northwest winds today. Played much better, though. Won back 50 cents of the 75 cents I lost yesterday.

Yesterday, rain was threatening. Birdied #1. Then, went in the tank. Could not do anything. Stuck a PW to 6" on #16 for my second birdie. Clouds opened. Lightning crackled. We headed to the cart barn with me down 75 cents. Two birds in the 16 holes we played and still lost money!!!

Tomorrow, wind chill supposed to stay in the upper 20's to low 30's. A couple of us who have covers on our carts will probably still play.

Played in 30mph winds and rain last Saturday. I hit the ball as well as I could have hoped for and scored a 74 (+6). It was like the scene from Caddyshack. That was as good a score as I could have achieved, given the conditions. I figured I had a chance of bagging a Christmas Turkey, the top two scores got the birds. I was 5th!! FFS! Some guys playing off high indexes cleaned up. Not worth my while entering these competitions! Still, it was enjoyable and it's good to be playing well.

It was a stunning day on Saturday, hardly a breath of wind, warm, just a gorgeous day to be out on the links. I shot +3, with 4 bogies and only the one bird, which resulted from driving the edge of a short par 4. My putting feels solid, but I'm just not making anything. Had ~8 makable putts which ringed out, or stopped in the jaws etc. Gotta be patient with the flatstick, they will drop. Laughably, I came 19th on Saturday. I think I need to shoot 2 or 3 under par to have a chance. I made a few swing changes, resulting from a lesson I had several weeks ago. My ball-striking has considerably improved since then, so I'm very happy with my game right now. I'm ready to pounce one of these days.

Monday and Tuesday were perfect days! Mid 70's and sunshine. Our course saw over 250 players total for those two days. Usually, by now a lot of golfers have hung up their clubs for the year. The beautiful weather sure brought them out for a Monday and a Tuesday.

Been a pretty good week. Won $1.25 on Monday. 50 cents on Tuesday. And, 75 cents today!!!! Cooler today with 30 mph northwest winds. Been fighting my chipping. Haven't had a decent short game for a few days. But, putts that need to fall are. Ran a 15 footer in for birdie on 18 today.

Looks like we could see some frost delays the next few days. Still should be able to play.
