First Time Breaking a Milestone

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

This is a non scoring related milestone and didnt happen on the course.  Some of you old timers may even be able to remember the moment.

I had my first suck back on a wedge shot.

Usually my wedge shots roll forward after a bounce, but I had a genuine drop and suck back.  With a range ball at 90 yards.

... Awesome, glad you had that experience! Otoh, watching a ProV1 spin off an island green and into the water is not anywhere near as enjoyable. 😳

For the first time in my golfing career, my handicap is no longer in the teens!

With my play this year, I've been trending down from a 14, but for a long time was stuck at 13.3. 

My last three rounds however have dropped me down to a 12.8! 

Now for the hard part of keeping the trend going the correct way.

The round that sticks out the most is when I finally broke 80. I had been playing a bunch in high school and had gotten closer but always had that one shot that ruined the round. Finally, on a Sunday morning playing with my Dad and our neighbor at the time (who we played with very often) on our home course at the time it happened. 

As any good round like this should it started with a solid tee shot to 90 yards and I stuffed the shot to a few feet for an easy birdie and the round rolled from there. More specific shots don't stick out currently except that I was just solid throughout the round. Lots of fairways and green, despite all this the last few holes were nerve wracking for sure. Walking off 18 after that last putt dropped I could not have been more excited. I think I still have the scorecard in my bag somewhere.

I forgot to post after my last round.  I played September 12th with my sons and a friend.  It was rather short notice, and helped me forget the fact I wasn't in NE Ohio with the group.  I surprised myself with a round of 94.  Considering I played a total of 3, 18 hole rounds, and was a sub in a league 4 times.  Not a great year of playing opportunities.
