    Played a scramble today. Just a thing for a local bar. Shot 12 under but that was only good for second. Winners had -14.

    We won the last outing they had in 2019 with a -17 at the same course. Botched 2 very makeable eagle putts, only 1 birdie on the par 3s, and lipped at least 2 birdie putts on other holes. Good day overall, and super trashed rn lol

    Scrambles always so fun, but frustrating. Best to get hammered and crush the buffet and drown sorrows at the cash bar. Well played!

    Coming out in two weeks. Had hoped to finally play Shadow, but it will be closed.
    Going to play Paiute Wolf.

    Paiute Wolf is sweet. Funny thing about Shadow is I could care less about the $600 or $1,000 or whatever, I just got so annoyed dealing with the host back and forth and having to follow up so many times I am totally turned off to it now. Sorry but I'm not going to chase them around to give them my $1,000 to play their course. I am very karma oriented in my Vegas activities and I see this place as a total jinx for me now. Fuck it. I'll play my $200 dog tracks and get paired with Judge Smales and Spalding.

    So on Thursday I shot a 91 with like 38 putts, first round in 90's since March and actually hit a lot of good shots, but also a lot of bad shots. Granted it was windy, it was a course I hadn't played, and we played the tips, but it was still awful. I had a two way miss going with every club in the bag, including the putter, lol. I literally missed everything on the few holes I hit in reg. If I had a good drive, I botched the iron. If I hit a good drive and iron, I 3-putted. If I missed a green and hit a good chip or pitch it either checked up or rolled out and I missed the 6 or 8 footer every time.

    But isn't this how golf works, today I went out with Seany and we played a pretty decent course and everything was on fire for both of us. We each chipped in once. We holed out from over 15 feet 8 times in the round. The mishits caught the edge of the fairway or green rather than bouncing into the trees or a bunker. It was a great day, probably the best overall day we've both had in a while. We played 2-man scramble and shot 30-34: 64. I would say we are usually between 2-under and 2-over on our 2-man scrambles. When I hit a bad drive, he absolutely gutted it. And we both made a bunch of long putts. We did literally nothing different and hadn't practiced at all since the last round and didn't hit balls before the round today.

    Funny how golf works, isn't it? :)

    I haven't played Rio Secco, but I have played Cascata. It was a really fun round of golf. The whole thing is built into the side of a mountain in the middle of nowhere. They pump water up to the top of the mountain and create a manmade river that runs back through the course and through the middle of the clubhouse. Lots of good scenery. Need to listen to the caddie though. Everything runs back towards the valley hard, so reading putts is interesting. I'd play it again for sure, and with Shadow up to $1k/round, I'd say Cascata is the better value at this point...
