First full round since the boy was born
« on: September 06, 2012, 09:48:10 PM »

I don't suspect I have to tell any of you how hard it is to get out on the links when you have newborns/babies/toddlers at home. Especially when you're trying to convince your wife that she should stay home with them while you go play golf for 5 hours.

Anyway, my brother made a simple request to me: for his 40th birthday he'd like to get me, my other brother, him, and my dad together for a round of golf. For old time's sake. How could I say no?

Long story short: it was horrible. But not as bad as it could have been. I ended up Xing out three holes. But otherwise put together a pretty solid round. I even parred three holes, though to be fair all of them were one-putts. Mix in a few bogeys, a few more doubles... and, well, three holes that must not be mentioned, and I felt reasonably good about my game. You know, after not even swinging a club for two years. Especially on one of the tougher mountain courses Utah has to offer.

 Thumbs Up  Awesome!

I've been playing a fair amount.  All over the place.

Front side yesterday was a disaster.  Same as you, took X on 3 holes. Would have shot 50 something. *fudge* it.

Back side:  Back to back birdies on 2 and 3, and two missed par putts inside 2 feet (*goshdarn* playing partner/competitor getting in my head on those because we had money on the line) and I end up shooting a back side 38.

Stupid ass game.

Wow, two weeks ago I played the first round since the girl was born.

Bachelor party round in the DC area, borrowed some clubs.  It was about as bad as it could have been.  I was struggling to even make good contact.  Three of us were so bad that by the back nine we ended up playing a 3-man scramble against the groom (and STILL lost!)

Still, it was good company and fun to get out again.  I suspect I won't play again for several years.

A couple of weeks ago I played in my work's charity golf tournament/ scramble. My team posted a tie for 2nd place at 59 (13 under) at Valley View Golf Course in Layton, Utah. (Usice Beatha (pour some out) would know that course well. If he were still here I'd brag about eagling number 9, though only my drive counted in the mix in that one.)

I sank a couple of pretty decent putts, only contributed one drive to the mix, and hit the sand shot of my life (plus the putt) after complaining about not wanting to hit out of the sand. All in all, a descent round of golf. Maybe I'll play again before this time next year.
