First off, I'm in my 70's so my expectations are limited. Our local 18 hole course is a par 54 and this week I played 5 days in a row and games 1 thru 4 I scored 71 on each game, and my 5th game was a 70. Nothing to brag about, but at least I am consistent. Oh, on game 4 I got one birdie, so I was happy.

I had a tourney. One round was pretty good, other round not so good. What wasn't mediocre was raising $18,000+ for kids besieged with medical issues to attend a cool summer camp founded by the Petty family. That never sucks.

But yeah, the course has a decently long water carry hole and some other holes with disc swallowing vegetation so I swapped out like 60-70% of my bag for stable-overstable discs (Felons, Longbowmen, Verdict, Buzzz, Giant, Cutlass, etc) I didn't mind losing and basically played Sexton golf. Playing everything on straight to fade lines worked pretty well despite lack of familiarity with the discs. Not surprised at how well I shot with strange discs insomuch as how quickly I got comfortable with them. Fun experiment.

I got to play some courses in the Charlotte area q few days ago, and today made it down to Rock Hill. I played Canaan Riverbend, and it was beautiful. I went over to Winthrop and played most of the gold layout despite lack of markings. The highlights were getting 2s on hole 3 (Teebird forehand) and hole 7 (Pro Leopard about 10 feet past the wooden arch). Tough course! And I have more respect after seeing it in person.

I went out to my local course after taking a fee weeks off and I played pretty good actually.Putting can still use some work but I bought a basket so that should help

I need a practice basket for putting. I've been out in the last two weeks more than the last two months, thank gods it's been quiet with the snow so far.
Form is **** with so many layers on due to the Wisco cold, but other than that pretty good lately. I'm happy to be back on day shift...

First tourney in over 2 years yesterday, shot 986 and 947-rated rounds. Took second in ADV. Pretty great for me, normally if I shoot one decently hot round I totally s*** the bed in the other. I left 4 or 5 ~25ft putts out there in the second round, that was really the difference. I hit all the putts first round.

Highlight of the day was draining a ~100’ thumber recovery shot out of the woods with my champ Gator, for a birdie!

Hit an ace on thanksgiving, funny enough it was several firsts for me. First round on Thanksgiving, first ace with a putter(Swan 2), first ace on a course I hadn’t played, and first time I’d thrown the Swan 2 off the tee.

Overall just an okay round(-5), but as a guy who doesn’t ace often it was hoot.

Shot consecutive bogeyless, left handed, -3s at the local and pitch and putt 9 hole in the snow.

Been playing lefty for 4-5 weeks so far. First time out I shot +4, +1. I think I am getting it. But only like 2 months or so left before I'll need to get back to my righty game to prep for tourneys.

I played pretty well today and had some nice drives even though the course was very icy. I haven't had to put ribbons on yet this winter and the walking has been easy so I'm getting lots of rounds in. BIG skips on a lot of drives since it rained and iced up. I also played a one disc tourney over the weekend and ended up taking the ace pool in a throwoff with some pretty big young arms Not bad for a 65 year old man!
