    Just seems every hole is different. The first green is very generous, then the next is a par 5 with a tiny green, with giant deep slopes to the sides. Its a pretty tough course, since Florida is mostly flat. There aren't many hills and undulations except this course. I'll take pics if we make it out there.

    Played in a scramble about a week ago came in second with -8...left several strokes out there though. Playing in another scramble Friday afternoon. I haven't been able to play much outside of work related scrambles this year though.

    I have lived on a golf course, by that I mean helped build them from when I was 14. Family owned golf construction company. We recent just sold off a course that we somewhat owned and I worked on both sides, clubhouse and maintenance. I love golf and I am good at it(averaged 76s - 80s) but don't like playing it much. Its like when you work on one, you want to get away from it and not sit there and play on one for 4 hours. :shrug:

    Shot a 45 last night in league. Played pretty well I think.

    One trip, two dbl, three bogeys, three pars. Par 35 front/back.

    You're on your way to being a scratch player.

    I need to get out there. Haven't gone in a couple weeks

    Thanks, I still need a lot of work. Still have tendencies to lift, and sway at times. Especially with the driver. I can hit my 3 wood 230 on average, yesterday I bombed it 250 (336 yd par4, 87 left to center of green). The driver and fairway should be same swing, I just cant figure it out. I need hardcore range time. I scrambled well yesterday also, some nice punch shots, and my wedges were on it.
