Whoever plays @baldvinny next, don’t believe him when he downplays his game. Solid and straight all day, got up and down quite a few times and made several clutch putts. I didn’t realize until too late that I never stood a chance.
Hey man that was an awesome day on the course. I didn’t realize how well we played until I looked at the scorecard once I got home. Both of us played some really good golf “Just couldn’t make any putts”
Thanks again hope to run into you guys at future events.
@ChiFFI and I played our match today at Pine Meadows on a rainy 40 degree day with punched greens. We were joined by @TCRBrad and Matt. Best part of playing in such lovely weather is the company of other golf sickos.
I ended up winning 2&1. We play together in the breakfast ball league at Syd so knew each others game. @ChiFFI had an off front 9 while I built a 4 up lead despite losing the 1st. However on the back he started throwing darts and making putts. Highlight came on 16, after making a 2 footer for birdie on 15 to bring the match to 2 down. With a 25 foot putt for par he says, and I quote, “Come on! You are due for one of these”…drains it, no doubt. He was walking in putts on a few of the holes on the back 9.
@notorious83 looks like you are next
Gotta also shoutout Abe’s LETHAL 3wood, which despite the 30°s wind chill stayed red hot all day.
Time to do some “handicap adjustment.” @TheAbeFroman looking forward to it
Lost my game for a few holes there on the front and burned a couple shorties, but @TheAbeFroman closed the window a handful of times and started pounding the driving iron and 3W. Par save on 10 from the 18th rough - punch under tree line, wedge, putt from deep was huge.
Think you called it out Sunday - we seemed to have made more 10-15 ft putts than 3-5.
Watching for a deep tourney run.
Linking this here as our matchplay tournament will feed into this event.
@Awol and I got our first round match in today at Calumet CC and we were joined by @TheAbeFroman @kmcswain on this beautiful fall day. Conditions were pretty favorable for fall golf. Wind was light and no rain as predicted which made for a great round of golf.
The match started in my favor and I was able to keep things rolling with some consistently decent play. I showed a glimpse of how quickly my golf game can blow apart by crushing a driver towards the pond but safely into a prime position on hole 3. With 120 yards in from there I went on to make a 6(no hazards either). From there on out I also basically had a stroke a hole to work with. Found just enough fairways and greens to keep the lead building into 9 I was 4 up. Started the back strong to bump up to 5 up and then hole 13 was especially rude to awol where I also closed it out at 6 up.
Great round with great group of guys as always! I’m fortunate i got Awol on an off day, he will definitely get revenge on me in the future.
Was a fun match. Course was in great condition as well. Enjoyed the good company and the shenanigans of 13. Still recovering from that.
A tree, a true mud ball, and sweet relief, that hole had it all. The most fun I’ve had on a golf course in 43 degrees.
Got the match in today with Tim out at Edgebrook. A frost delay coupled shortened our match slightly but I ended up winning 4 up. It was great playing with Tim, who has a great great swing and had the match lead early on. I made a couple birdies on the back 9 though and was able to pull away. Looking forward to playing some more golf with Tim in the future.

@TeddyPargame with a decisive victory today in the wind and cold.
That had to have been an interesting time today out there.
The big right miss in that wind comically went from a banana to a full on plantain.
Ted hits it straight. Be like Ted.
Every now and then the finder is working. They barely got out of my shadow in the wind but we could find em.
Was a fun match and probably the coldest weather I’ve ever played in, and i make a point to play all 12 months as long as there’s no snow.
So to feed into the Ope-in we need to have concluded our tournament by early August?
Something like that.
