A new personal best
I played golf this morning with a friend of mine at a local course called Bentbrook here in Alabama. My previous best for a round was 83, which I shot a long time ago. Today I shot a blistering 38 on the front nine and struggled a little with a 43 on the back. For those of you who were learning to put condoms on cucumbers in dreadful public schools instead of learning basic math skills, that's a total of 81. But that's not all: I also birdied the par4, 1 handicap hole on the front nine with witnesses. (each 9 holes are ranked according to their level of difficulty with the 1 handicap hole being the hardest to par) I intentionally faded a 4 iron 185-190yards around an oak tree to within 4 feet of the pin, followed by a successful birdie put....with witnesses. The marshal was watching as were the foursome playing ahead of us while they waited to tee off on the next hole. For somebody who gets to play only a handful of times a year, 81 is epic! I just thought I'd share that with you guys.
