Had my first round in over a month, and only my 3rd round since about November. It was the first league day for one of my two men’s associations. Conditions were pristine. No wind and warm enough to have to take off my sweater.
Golf is Still Golf
I started out making six pars in a row. Then on the 7th hole of this 9-hole league I made a birdie. The “SCCS” kicked in after that, “swollen cerebral cortex syndrome.” I promptly made a double on a par-3 which I had pitching wedge in my hand on the tee. Duh. Finished with a par for a round of +1.
So golf is still golf. You think you have it, then you make a dumb double.
I’m surprised at my seeming lack of rust. I hope I’m ahead of the game, so to speak, this year as opposed to most winters where the game which comes out of hibernation is one of a 20 handicap, taking me most of the summer to get back to a 1.
I have a new gamer driver which I seem to really hit a mile. Review coming as soon as I feel I have enough rounds to fully evaluate it. I also have a new putter grip, new laser, new golf GPS watch, new sand wedge, new irons, new bag, new golf balls, new shoes, about 10 new shirts…
The review gear has been stacking up over the winter.
It’s nice to be back playing golf. The game of golf is right where I left it, triumphs and tragedies. It’s like I never left.
