The Goofy Game of Golf Searching for the Answer

Yesterday played course number sixty, 3 Lakes Golf Course in Penn Hills which is a 25 to 30 minute drive. I had played this course about 20 to 25 years ago and remembered nothing about it. The course was in very good shape and had the fastest greens we have putted so far. They ran a 7.5 on the stimp and were very smooth. The course was still very wet despite all the sunshine we have had, as again the temperatures hit the lower 80’s. The course was typically hilly but was fair and very enjoyable to play. We played from tees that made the course play about 6300 yards,to a par of 72 You can play from tees that will stretch the course to 6800 yards plus. The course played  long enough, with the wet conditions. The hot dog at the turn was fair as it was one of those bigger fatter dogs that just doesn’t taste as good as the smaller round hot dogs. My swing change continued to work well and I shot a 75  and Tony came in with a nice 76. This course use to be a country club but went public about 5 years ago. I am sure these greens were even faster back then but it was fun putting on a relatively quick putting surface. The greens did have some undulations in them but overall were very fair. The course had some tight holes with many trees and even from the middle tees was good challenge. This course was definitely worth the trip. As I said the swing change I made seems to have helped me quite a bit. It is not a new thing as far as golf instruction is concerned and so I am no closer to any new discoveries concerning how to hit this little ball or playing this game but the quest will go on. It is a little easier to continue the search when you hit the ball reasonably well. This past week was great weather wise and I got 5 courses in. However things are looking a little shakey this week so we will have to see if any are going to get added this week. Two thirds of the way home with 30 to go.
