Funny you mention it.  Pretty tired today. Arm where I had injection is super sore. Some joint pain. Not much of an appetite. But started feeling better later in the day. 

Hopefully it’ll run it’s course and you’ll be good to go tomorrow.

We adopted this little love bug 3 days ago and it’s like she’s always been here. My kids are over the moon with her, all she wants to do is play for 5-10 mins then cuddle with you for an hour.

I am taking 1,3, and 8. With those options most of the others can happen or aren’t relevant. For example I’ll pass on 300 yard drives if I can hit every green. Then no three putts eliminates anything worse than par and lost balls unless I am a horrible putter and putt into a hazard.

I am just too analytical

when it’s all done, you can treat yourself to #2 a couple or ten times.

I thought about that one but I don’t really drink. I average maybe 2 beers a year.

i’m not a big drinker either, but a round like that would merit a few cold beers

1, 3, 8 as well. I brew beer and I drink beer, but I don't brew or drink beer when I play. Except in Florida, then I MAY have a beer during the round.

I'm going with 1,3,5

1) Perfect weather   YES

2) Don't like beer

3) Hit all Greens   YES

4) Course all to myself... Happens every Sunday

5) Hole in one YES  "Got to get out of that other thread"

6) Double Bogey free,  don't get many doubles. But a hole in one would give me a free one!

7) 300 yards, doesn't matter if I'm hitting all the greens

8 No three putts, it's not often I three putt

9) No lost balls, don't loose many balls.

Had a service appointment for the cart this morning, no golf. It sounded like the clutch was making “metallic” noises maybe broken spring. Yup, broken snap ring which caused a bit of havoc to the tune of $250. Lucky it still under warranty so N/C and had a loner cart for the day.
Yamaha has 5 years warranty on new purchase carts and it’s 4 years old.

Received this email today. It's a good sign - this course drains incredibly and is always the first to open but it means we're close!

So I got lucky yesterday. Sunday I was washing my car and in northeast Ohio are round departments use a lot of salt and brine for the roads. It’s fair to say we get a buildup of road grime on our cars. Needless to say I was washing to see how much I could expunge with a power washer and microfiber rag knowing in a month or so I will need to claybar and wax. I was going about my rear bumper when I noticed their was some water between my clear coat and paint. Go figure I out a little pressure on it and the clear coat chipped. Now I’m steaming a little, try to do a good deed and clean your car and it bites you in the butt. Monday morning I call the body shop who has done some work for me in the past taking out a dent and scratch  because of others who don’t like to pay attention or value their personal belongings. The manager comes out and starts to give me a quote but he tries telling me in the past someone had repainted my bumper and the clear coat needs to be stripped so I’m starting to see major solar signs. He even goes as far to say that it might be cheaper to get a new bumper and paint it. Needless to say I remind him they took out a few scratches from the bumper 2 years ago. Between the bunper and rear quarter panel their is a spot where it must have rubbed over time from some friction or a stone hit it and took the paint off right down to the plastic, likely allowing the clear coat to be exposed over time allowing moisture in. The wheels start turning in the managers head, mask or no mask this look was priceless. This body shop you pay a little extra but everything is full warranty unless you have an accident or personal fault for failure. Needless to say it was no fault of mine and my car bumper will be fixed at no cost, new clear plastic scratch protector at my trunk and all!

A while back the company I work for merged with another company.  We're both top companies to work for prior to the merger and the new company has been really working to keep that going.  They worked to take the best of both companies benefits and comp plans and really gave us a great package of stuff, especially considering COVID  (I have no more medical premiums taken out of my check, they cover 100%!!! -and the plan was basically the same as we had, no change in doctors either.)
The only downside for me personally has been the 90 mile round trip commute before everyone began working from home.  We're still not going back anytime soon, but its looking like I'm going to be able to be a 100% remote employee going forward.  I just took an internal transfer to fill in a spot from the other company which is based in Florida.  So now that my boss, and the rest of the team sits there it makes sense that I would be able to be fully remote, or not go in to the office nearly as much.  Who knows... maybe I'll get to travel to Florida a few times each year! That's never a bad thing for a golf fan.
At any rate, it was an awesome opportunity for me to take and a chance to really propel myself forward with my experience as our two company's continue to transition our systems and reporting. 


So, do you think you’ll get to Tampa? If so, we can def set up some MGS rounds.
