Good: played an awesome memorial round for the owner of the Country Course today. Played really well and banged a bunch of 30-40' putts. Got a couple of CTPs and came in fourth. Also bought a new 170 proto wizard for $10.

bad: didn't win the tourney, had a couple of spit outs that would have put me in 2nd.

ugly: how I feel after all the various alcohols I sampled today. Jamaican Vacations are dangerous.

Good - I've been practicing short (20' and in) putts for the past three weeks after having the most embarrassing putting round of my life.

Better - The putting practice has transitioned to the course and on my NYE round, I only missed one putt within 20'.

More Better - The weather has been awesome for 2011, 50ish degrees here in Baltimore.

Best Evar - Played 9 holes of ball golf at 8am yesterday. Despite rock hard greens and tees (couldn't sink a tee, had to hit off the deck) I shot a 47 which is pretty damn decent for me and beat a friend who routinely shits on my world by one hole stroke. Said friend shot two par 72s in 2010.

Good: Picked up 2010 tag 10 to finish the season, 2011 tag 3 to start this season
Also Good: I hit 2 or 3 putts outside the circle, which is rare for me.
Bad: 8 birdies and finished -1. . .
Ugly: 3+ missed putts inside 15' (it was below 30 and snow on the ground)

Good - getting to play my first tourney of 2011 this Saturday (Mt. Kisco Ice Bowl in NY, also first NEFA pts of the year)
Bad - haven't played a tourney since the end of August, but practice rounds have been decent
Ugly - a blizzard dumped 1.5' of snow in the northeast, and even with a good amount of melting, course conditions could be tough

Good: bidding a not-so-fond farewell to the PDGA in 2011
Bad: no Vibram Open for me in 2011 - first ever MSDGC/VO I will have missed
Ugly: the Grange closed from 1/10/2011 until 3/1/2011, likely transforming my once-weekly round of glo golf into a once-monthly trek to Hawk Hollow (if that)

good: actually got out and played in our New Year's Day 2 round flight last weekend.

bad: didn't particularly shoot well (but good enough to qualify for the Ryder Cup already lol) and there were only 5 people there.

ugly: the weather. 20 degrees and lots of wind. didn't help me out with my learning curve throwing cyclones and OLFs.

Good - Played with Chris Heeren in a tournament today so that was good. Best player I have ever got to play with. I also played my first open tournament and tied for 5th and cashed.

Bad - 4 Bogeys. Get rid of them and I would have got second.

Ugly - My wind/sun burn

Good: Played ok on Saturday.
Bad: A lot of easy missed putts inside the circle
Ugly: My idea to throw a seasoned 12x KC Roc in cold weather... Shattered into tiny little pieces off the first tree off the tee.... first throw of the round. She'll be missed. :cry:

Damn! How cold was it when your Roc shattered? I shattered a DX last winter on a day that probably topped out at 6 degrees or so. I took my Rocs out of the bag this winter - didn't want to lose/break another as they take so much time to work in. I'm throwing the Core, the Fuse, and a NEW DX Roc to fill the stable slot.

I too broke a seasoned roc this past weekend. It was my second warmup throw for an Icebowl and i cracked it right in half on a tree. My own stupid fault though. I generally take my seasoned rocs out and use my mako, only problem there is my mako is white and there was snow on the ground. I need to get a contrasting color, straight outta the box, premium mid for situations like that.

Good thing is I have oodles of money rocs waiting to take the place of their fallen brethren.
