This past week end, I played in a scramble tournament and it was one of the most enjoyable outings that I have experienced.   A young buck with whom I have played golf quite a bit asked me if I would like to fill a team.   It was to benefit the sports programs at a local college that he and a couple of his buds are alums and played on its baseball team.   So the team was three young bucks and an old coot.   I felt like Phil at the President's cup.  Needless to say, we did not use any of my drives, but a couple of my second shots and I did get lucky and was able to pull some chips, pitches and putts out of my butt.  I don't know if they fully understood how enjoyable and appreciable it is to an old coot like me to have been invited and a part of their team.  Of course, there were a few good natured old man jokes, but that made it even more fun for me and I gave them a few wait til you're my age and when you grow up jokes.  We finished second.

Early morning a bit humid for an 81, 40-41. A double bogey on each nice kinda hurt but swing is getting better.

Played in a local clubs Ryder cup style event this passed weekend. Played terrible Saturday. Should have either swept or tied maybe one match. Instead we tied the fourball, won the scramble and lost the alternate shot. Overall a split for Saturday's matches.


Sundays singles went much better. I only hit 5 greens but shot 70. Ended up scrambling well and an eagle helped. I think I ended up winning 4 and 2.

I'm sure it had to be demoralizing for me not to hit any greens and yet somehow be up 2 after 4 holes  :D. I think through 8 I was 3 under and had only hit 3 greens. And that was with a lip out bogey.

Played atypically well .. really well. Finished my local short 9-Hole course with a +7 .. It's a Par 35 (just one Par 5) so a personal best 42*
* with 1 Mulligan (tee shot went ZINGing straight left into the woods)

And that was with one Triple where after I'd pulled another tee shot left .. to find it in a really bad lie .. with an awkward stance .. I went brain-dead and needed *three* shots to clear it to a good layup spot....

So I had...
4 Pars
4 Bogeys
1 Triple
and hit 4 fairways and 3 greens.

(I love this game .. again .. after not liking it so much after a really pitiful practice round just a few days ago.)

Day 2 of the MGA championship, well it did not go as planned, the front nine was 5,5,4,5,4,5,6,3,4. 1 par, 2 birdies, 1 double and 5 bogeys. I was 7 over through 7 holes. Not the start that I wanted, but finished the front with 2 birdies, almost chipped in for eagle on 9. Missed 2 legit birdie putts on the back, came up just short both times, and missed a couple other birdie chances but didn't make any, finished the back with a 40. So 7 over after 7 holes, and finished with a 81. 2 over for the last 11 holes, on a day when I didn't bring the best swing, and had a horrible start, I finished strong and had a good time.

I've been out of the loop for a while, but a little over a week ago, the wife and I took a mini vacation to Niagara-on-the-Lake. Played 9 on what is addressed at the oldest course in North America. The wife taxied me around, and I hit balls. Sliced every wood I hit, but my irons are starting to come back after a lesson and couple trips to the range. I can now feel what I'm doing wrong when I do it, but getting better. I made a lot of 6-10 foot putts and still shot 46. I thought I had a pic of a sign near the 8th green that it is still in the same configuration it was in 1875. Must be on the wife's phone.
