Despite yesterday's "better" play, today was a total disaster!  Everything I did was wrong.  No idea what happened other than I got in my own way.  Played a 2 man best ball with our senior group today.  Both my partner and I played stinky!  On a brighter note, an 18 handicap player showed up wearing plus fours and knee socks, a sweater vest with a Scottish logo and matching hat with same logo metallic medallion on it.  Said it was his clan symbol (McAlister, although his name was Miller). I think he watched too much tv as I observed his pre-swing routine.  He'd stand behind the ball, take two half swings perpendicular to his line, hold the club up vertical to find his target, then look down at the ball as he walked away from that target and settled into his setup without fanfare (or consistency) and take a mighty swing.  His putting routine was equally entertaining, with his glove removed and tucked in his rear pocket with all 4 fingers pointing downward, as he squatted to read his line then proceed to putt 6 feet off line.  Had it not been for his entertaining performance, I might have thrown my entire clubs and bag into the pond.

After six years of playing, I got my first hole in one yesterday! Pretty crazy feeling to see the ball drop from the tee box. It was a slight downhill par 3 from 150 yards, got it done with a 9 iron!

The quarters have to be paid on the next tee.  

All of us are old and cheap!!  
Since the rounds of golf are comped, it cost me 2 quarters to play 18 holes with a cart.  Not bad!!  Sometimes I get paid quarters to play golf there.

We don’t bet big dollars either but they add up at the end of the round once double bets and in some cases a double back happens and $24 is lost on a hole

12 over at the Siena Club; last few days have definitely been an eye opener on how easy my local muni’s are. If I had 28 putts at home I’d have shot even par...

The quarters need to be paid on the next tee (we keep our stash in the cart cup holder under our water bottle).  Yes, sometimes we need to be reminded!!  There's something about the clink of quarters added to your stash!

We add up how many quarters we gain/lose after 16 holes; the two guys that lost the most quarters will Wolf on 17 and 18.  The one with the least amount of quarters gets to chose which hole they want.  Yesterday, the guy that was down the most picked #17, a par 3 and "Double Wolfed"; hit a bad tee shot and had to pay two quarters to each of us.

Tooling along with a decent round going despite doubling #13 again when I hit a nice drive on #18 leaving myself a 9 iron in.  Hit it right at the flag and feeling good about the shot when it comes up short and catches the lip of the trap and rolling back into the green side trap.  Now, I'm normally a decent sand player and feeling confident that I can get up and down for the par, bogey at the worst.  Get up to the trap and the lie is decent, no worries.  I catch too much sand and the ball doesn't clear the lip and rolls back in.  WTF?  OK.  Set up and again I don't get out.  Now I'm really pissed.  Third attempt comes out well, but doesn't have much spin and I'm 10 feet above the hole, not much break but a bit downhill.  I putt and it's rolling at a great speed center cut......veers a tad and I burn the edge.  Walk away with a triple bogey on the closing hole to shoot an 81 ----- and my partner and I lose by one point!
