My wife wanted to pick up a digital kitchen scale, she said "it'll be great for portion control and helping out on recipe measurements".
Me: "My driver weighs 322 grams".


I love it!

I wish I could stagger home like that most times, instead of 5 - 7 times a season.😁

Well, when you are even par through 10 holes, and then bogey 6 of the next 7 holes, it's definitely staggering home.

When you're walking 18 holes on New Years Day, in shorts [because it's 77 degrees], and that golf shirt your daughter got you for Christmas, and your buddy snaps a pic of you walking the fairway without you knowing it.

Good times.

And has anyone ever come up with the idea of shooting a lower score than the temperature outside?  Not a tough ask in the heat of summer, but in fall, winter and spring, this might present a unique challenge.

(And no, I was not able to accomplish it yesterday, as I staggered home to a depressing 78).

While a good score over all, its funny how sometimes a 78 can feel like a 69 and other times a 90. 

Nice pic!!  I think your legs have attained that winter time dormant bermuda color to them!!  😜

Very strange circumstances - the golf course is in Washington state, but the only roads to the course are through Canada. With the border closed due to the pandemic, no one can get there.

I live in WA state, so I am aware of the uniqueness of Point Roberts and how it is only accessible via the Canadian border. I didn't read the article yet, but are they saying no one can access it? I would think residents of Point Roberts could still go.

Pretty much - it seems there aren't many golfers in the area. The majority of regulars apparently come from Canada.

Makes sense. I don't think very many people live in Point Roberts in general

When you work and work and work, and you go out and play and all that work seemingly evaporates on the first hole when you slice a drive into the bunker.  Oh no, but it's not good enough to be in the bunker, it has to come to rest right over the back lip, so you can't even get your club on the ball without taking some ridiculously stupid swing.

So you take your best swipe at it in the back of the bunker and you barely move the ball towards the front of the bunker.  Now it's sort of resting to where the front lip will force you to play a really high lofted club just to get out of the bunker.  So you club up and pop it out, leaving yourself in the rough with some ridiculous lie about 30 yards in front of the green.

You make your best effort at the chip, but the ball is so buried, and so muddy that you chunk it about 10 yards.  Now you've got a tight lie to a front pin.  Well, with your memory fresh from chunking your last shot, you overcompensate and blade your next wedge shot over the green, into the pine straw underneath the trees behind the green.

Screw it you say, I've had enough of this impossible hole that I've dug for myself.  So you huff and you puff your way towards the tree.  Your ball is seated up against the tree now, so that you can't even take a full swing, and you'll be luck to get it on the green.

Impossible you say!  You take one big angry swipe at the ball and you top it and it bounces about 5 yards ahead of you into the rough again.  You're still off the green and in nasty rough.  Screw it you say, and grab your putter.  You're so mad at this point that you just swipe at the ball and you let it rip.  Once again your ball takes off and it seemingly looks back at you and laughs as it skips across the green like a virgin on prom night and ends up in the greenside bunker on the other side of the green.

No, no, no.  This cannot be possible.  Your ball comes to rest against the back lip of the bunker, essentially unplayable.

Your blood pressure is boiling now.  You haven't even finished the first hole, and you've long ago lost track of how many strokes you've taken on this hellish hole.  You look at your ball; you're ready to explode.  You break your putter shaft over your knee, and you bend over, pick up your ball, and throw it in the woods.

You march off in a huff towards the cart.  "My ball's in pocket," you quietly say to your playing partners.

Your group finishes out the hole while you quietly stew in the cart.  Your buddy puts his clubs in his bag, and sits down in the cart next to you and asks, "what should I put down for your score on that hole?"

"Give me a five."

I keep score on my Garmin GPS watch, and it tells you how many over or under you are.  But at that point it wasn't too hard for me to figure out.  I had two bogeys and two birdies on the front nine, and made a nice up and down for par on 10 from the bunker.

But yeah, I get where you are going with this.  Ignorance is bliss they always say.

I get tight when I know... I think way too much on the course anyway, so if I’m close to par, or my best round and I know it, I get REALLY tight. Sucks.

Well, it really wasn't nerves, it was borderline stupidity.

The 11th hole is a par 5, where I ripped a drive down the middle, and then smoked a 4 wood to the front fringe in two.  I essentially had an eagle putt to a back right pin.  I overcompensated on the fringe putt and putted the ball off the back of the green, which left me with a devilish uphill chip back to the pin, which was tucked tighter than virgin ***** against the back of the green.  So I've got to flop something and hope it stops and doesn't take the massive slope that will send the ball towards the front of the green.  I actually pull off the chip for the most part and it trickles about 6-7 feet below the hole.  But I still two-putt for the bogey.

In front of the green in two, walk off with bogey.  I was pretty much done after that colossal lesson in horrible course management.

Lesson learned - don't get greedy and want the eagle so bad as to cause a complete meltdown on the hole going forward.  I don't think I could have played that hole any worse after two glorious shots to get to the green in two.

I broke out a different set of sticks and practiced sliding down a slippery hill yesterday.  It's my once or twice a year reminder of how old I've become.

20210106_123416.jpg.b3d07174c2cbea4c1027f5f49ed8f5fd.jpg

 

It was a successful day because I got to spend it with my kid, I didn't fall or hurt myself (or anyone else!) and after an hour in the hot tub last night and this morning, a few advil and some stretching I can imitate an evolved person and walk semi upright in minimal pain from sore muscles!!  😆

I did learn I shouldn't buy the 8 hour lift ticket any more, it is a waste of two hours since I was cooked at 6!  I should just get the 4 hour ticket, nap & wait in the car for the kid to finish her full day of fun and be less sore the next day!   

It was good to see people being good about mask wearing, keeping their distance in the lift lines and being extra courteous as we merged to the chairs.  Much like golf a good outdoor activity that can be mostly safe if you want it to be.
