The Good Morning Thread


Recommended Posts

Lost our league ship by a tenth of a stroke and I'm pissed.

Partner is 11.8, "Fred" is a 11.9

For some reason that equates to Fred getting 3 strokes and partner getting 2 (we play 9 holes)
Don't ask me how, I still can't figure out the math on that one.

Down 2 with 2 to play and we win 8 and 9 to go to first playoff hole.
Partner gets a par
Fred gets a bogey, BUT Fred gets a stroke on the hole but partner doesn't.
Match should be over right here.

Fred artificially inflates his HC and everyone in the league and the clubhouse knows it. He does it intentionally and he plays with his 25 y/o son who plays fair and square.

Fred and his kid are who we beat in the ship last year and Fred was doing his damndest to make sure it didn't happen again.
He plays like a 9 hc and hits FW and greens with regularity.
I don't mind losing, not at all, but it has to be a fair match. If you have to cheat in order to win can you feel good about it?

we walked away with our heads held high but I'm considering leaving the league due to this chickensh*t.

Good morning everyone! I hope this isn't my last post on the forum as I'm about to go wake the wife up at 6 in the morning. 

We have a project we have to get done and while I'm used to being up early, she is not. Not to mention, she grew up in a trailer park outside Chicago so the danger is real.

We have to go out to the property my mother-in-law used to own and clean up around it and board the door shut by the order of the Hamilton County government. To be honest, we've neglected the place since we don't own it. We have to get the will probated and with the difficulties of the past year, we haven't been on the ball about things.

I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Well I’m REALLY early!!

GM & Happy Friday!!  Playing a course I really like but a long cart ride so leaving early.  Breakfast will be coffee & a nice ripe peach.  Small group Friday due to many reasons.

The Bacon Boyz took a hit this week one of the guys (good friend) had heart surgery yesterday.  He’s doing OK.  One of my neighbors is moving to an assisted living facility (nice place), he has issues and his wife is having major problems.  He picked out a great place where he can keep his cart and close to many courses but a long way from us.  I’ll try to keep him in the loop so he can hook up with us occasionally.  Both good guys.

Everyone have a great Friday no matter what you
