So, how did you play today? Part II

Dubs @ Creeping Creek was rough in the rain last night with Sewer bill as partner, all our drives were just slipping out but we both managed to make some long putts and not DFL.

Later after stopped raining 5 of us played a big money Tiki/Tag round thanks to Sewer bill(and partner FunkyChickenStep) putting up half his ace pot from last week. We lost 2 players after the first 9 tiki, Sewer bill and Slayter. The remaining 3 of us battled it out the final 18 tiki holes. I had 2 stroke lead going into the final 18 after the first 9, and then aced the first hole(or 10th) and got another stroke on the second(or 11th) hole for 4 stroke lead. I then lost a stroke on hole 4, but got another ace and stroke on hole 8 and managed to hold them off for the win plus the ace pot and reclaimed the #1 Tiki Tag and $60.
 
I played a good round (+48 on rating right now) then got hot & tired and threw a crappy round (-63 rating points) partially due to fingers too sticky for my normal putters. Where's the "head banging against wall" emoji?
 
NADGT at South Hills in Lebanon today. I was the only FA1, so I "won" and got the invite, but shot +12 in the first round (shorts front 9, longs back) and +8 second round (all longs except 3 and 8). I had more in me but wind and some sloppy disc choices were made. Oh well. What can you do? It was a nice day with good card mates. Nobody got hurt. We treated ourselves to unnecessary expensive coffees afterward. It was a good day.
 
Was able to get a rare mid week round in. My putting was on point for once and I was able to go -4 at Cedar Glades.
 
Good and occasionally bad.

The putter was working and approach game was solid. Had a few comically bad drives including a grip lock that went over the heads of the two groups ahead of us. Also laced a long putter anhyzer approach through a tight gap that was just a tiny bit too turned over. It hit maybe 10' shy of the basket and got up and rolled out of sight and past the next tee. One of the few times I was thankful for a backup. Without the group waiting at the next tee, I never would have guessed it made it all the way down there.

Played a slow, sweaty round at Eagle Ridge with my older son and then went out to lunch for his birthday. Although I have only played it a couple times in the last few years, I really like that course. This was my first round in a few weeks due to a combination of a foot injury and some urgent home repair work. Foot's feeling good and I have maybe two hours of work left on my project.
 
Two rounds with friends at Channahon. Two +6's on the short, so I'm mildly proud of the consistency I kept. First round was slightly windy, which put some hesitation into EVERYBODY. Then the wind picked up to comedy levels. Lot of medicine shots, some great saves. Couple huge shots off the tee (for us olds anyhow). Impressive roller par save from absolute hell. Nearly lost discs. Great day for the Stingray to park what the putter couldn't keep up with.
Disc golf is pretty okie dokie.
 
Threw par at Endicott Park in St. Louis for just the second time ever, the last time being over a decade ago. Not the toughest course in the world but technical enough that it's hard to put 18 good holes together. Ended with a turkey on 15-17, parking 16 and 17. Guess I need to play every Father's Day now.
