2nd Member guest tourney

This time I am back in Mt. Pleasant, SC over at Dunes West Country Club. Playing with a long time friend Tom Parker who just became a golf member at Dunes West.

Tourney is huge, 48 teams tons of prizes given away and raffles for more.

We are a combined 34 handicap and it puts us in the 7th flight. We again do a team matchplay format with a twist. It is a combined scores for each player on each hole. We end up 3rd in our flight.

Shootout takes for ever as it starts with 16 teams with each guy playing his own ball.

Great food, tons of drinks... great time!

First Member Guest tourney of the year.

This one is hosted at Rivertowne Country Club in Mt. Pleasant, SC. My brother in law Mike has invited me back this year. Our combined handicap for the tourney is 17. He has played 1 round this year so it should be fun.

We are flighted in the first flight. It has 6 team flights and you play match play versus the other flights. First day we go 7 out of 10 and in the other two we go 7.5 out of ten and we hold a 2.5 point lead.

Sunday we play the team that is in second place first. We win the match 6 to 4 and only need 2 points to win our flight in the last match. We had a lot of fun as we are just waiting for the shootout to begin.

Shootout! We have to wait for 10 tee shots before we get to go. Stood up on my drive and lost it way right. Mike pulls his left in the water we are done.

Had a great time, ate a ton of food. Paramutal betting doesn't pay off for crap as there was plenty of bets on us.

Now time to get ready for next weekends tourney.

Ouch hurt my back

Hurt my back during the week and tried to golf this weekend. I was only able to make a half swing with a flip at the end. I was struggling to get off the tee box. The only thing that was working was chipping and putting. I did discover on hole twelve that if I set up with an open stance and swing I was able to get all the way through and get my hands up behind my head. So I started playing for a fade and was able to finish the round with much less pain.

It also didn't help much with the 95* heat and+90% humidity. I lost like 12 pounds walking 18.

So much for putting problems. 79 today.

I was invited to play Charleston National with a friend from church who had a couple of passes. Had to do some work on my laptop on the front nine. Had 4 bogeys and a triple where I was trying to do something stupid and hit it in the water. Finished the front nine with a birdie on 9 for a 6 over. One the back nine had a bogey on a misread putt and realized on 17 that if I parred out I would have an 80. Had a good up and down for par on 17 and 18 is a par 3. I said step up and birdie this one for a 79. From the tee box it was playing about 140 with a bunker behind the green and marsh in front. I didn't want to go long so I put a smooth swing on my PW it left about 10' straight up the hill for birdie. When I hit the ball the group I was with got excited. I drained the putt and finished with a 79. Been a long struggle back after posting a couple of 79's last year. Overall it was a so-so day from the tee box. Not so great on my approach shots but a great day chipping and putting. I only missed 1 chip shot and not many putts all day.

Putter / Putting problems

Man right now it is killing me. I am over analytical on my putting on the course. I can have fun and make decent putts on the practice green but getting on the course I tense up and can't read a break. Oh well back at it again this weekend.

Hit them straight.

Ok so after doing some more research....

One underground fence controller, one smoke detector, one Intel Atom pc, one mini itx hulu box, one HTPC in living room, one GFCI and one regular outlet in garage.

Rough day. Got some work to do it looks like.

Mother Nature's Fury on Display

A tree in my neighbors yard just got hit by lighting as I happen to be looking out the window. Only loss at this point seems to be the control box for the invisible fence for the dogs and a smoke detector.
