Chilly Golf?

So we finally got a cold front come through, leaving us with near freezing temperatures overnight this weekend. The result was a really nice cool weekend.

I had planned on playing golf at Hermann Park, which is an easier, shorter course, which you can easily walk. Unfortunately, when I called a friend to confirm if we were going to play, I did not get anyone to pick up, but did get an email saying… ’38F windchill of 32F… brrr I think I’ll stay in my warm bed.. ;-)’

Damn thin blooded Dane’s… can’t take a little cool weather! Oh well, it allowed me the time to finish the latest Jim Butcher book, which I would highly recommend!

Two rounds of golf, or close to it…

… but the score should be more than enough for 3 or 4 rounds…

It was not pretty, especially this weekend. Last week we played the Lakes course at Wildcat. A tough course on a good day, and that day it was extremely windy and the only part of my game that was close to being on was my drive. The rest of my game was horrible. Thankfully I had to stop after 13 holes as we had a dance lesson later that afternoon.

Yesterday, we played down at Southwyck. Here, I started with a par, then went down hill for the next 15 holes. Last two holes I redeemed myself a little. 15 over par would be a great round. 15 over on the front 9 is a bad start. 19 over par would be a good round, 19 over par through 7 holes is a bad day, 19 over par through 9 holes on the back 9, after hitting a 15 over par on the front 9 is a horrid day. My game was just not there. I partly blame the guy we were hooked up with. He seemed to be a nice enough guy, but was a prick. Hard to say exactly what it was that annoyed me (and everyone else there) apart from his moving while you are hitting, his constant lying on his scorecard, and the odd comment from him, but it helped throw me off my game. Good news is… it can only go up hill from here in terms of my game, and if it does not, then maybe golf is not for me!!!!
