Guys it was a great way to end the work week and the first time this year I played golf. the weather was a balmy
45f/7c and a wind chill of 41f/5c. blasted the ball driving, hit long and short irons very well accuracy needs improvement, but the putting was fair and on the last hole, a par five, 18 inchs from the cup for par I stroked it the ball went toward the hole and all I can say is *&^%$%***&895:D

it's why I play golf:thumbsup:

Darn right I'm use to it, but using this as a baseline after last playing in October I'm four strokes ahead now then last year on the first round. I might give Rick a good round if he decides to stop here this summer on the way to his brother's house:rolleyes:

Luke: I felt powerful today and not tired like I use to. hooorah!
Good for you! I have the possibility of hereditary heart disease as well as diabetes, and I'm certainly not nearly as physically fit as I use to be. I'm hoping getting back into golf will also help me keep that sort of thing in check as I head toward 50.

I'm glad you got out and saw the improvement you did from last year, that's what keeps me going back. I hit 255 off the last tee on Monday, then hit the green in regulation on a long par five. I then proceeded to 4 putt, I feel your pain. :laugh:

I don't think there is a golfer, pro or weekend warrior, that hasn't done that. (i must do this) When Surtees is putting for dough his mates are on the next Tee driving for show.:)

Right now I would take a 110, 45 putts, 16 lost balls, or all of these,
Just to play a round. I have to get out of this cold and snow.

I hear ya brother I didn't think the snow would ever get off, not that we had a lot of snow its just been too cold to melt. The forcast predicted snow this weekend, but no, its better today than yesterday and all my buddys are doing the honey do's and I'm on the forum, what the heck am I thinking?:confused:

I played today... shot a shaky 88. Had to get out, since tomorrow it's supposed to snow 3-12" in the Denver area, depending on where you live, and we live close to the mountains where it's supposed to be heavier. It's going to be cold for the remainder of the week, so whatever snow falls won't be melting very fast.

I'm going to try to talk my wife into a round tomorrow. She's thinking it's going to be too cold, but it's gonna be 47* and sunny. It will be wet, but it didn't rain more today like they predicted and we'll be walking anyway. She's really got the itch to go out and hit right now, we were watching TV earlier and she just blurted out, "I wanna go play!"....I bet I can talk her into it. :D

Thanks, I think I can talk her into it though. ;) I'm going to watch the game for sure, but it doesn't start until 6:25, so we have plenty of afternoon in the sun. :D

Just the wife and I at home. I thought about going to a buddy's bar, but decided I wanted to be able to yell at the TV and not look like a total idiot in public. :D

I shot 83 today with 4 penalty strokes for lost balls or OB's. I didn't hit the driver very well, but still managed to hit some greens and I made 3 putts over 10 feet including one around 25 feet, so I had a bit of luck there. While this may not sound like magic, it was all done in the midst of 35 mph winds. I have to say I was really happy with that result.

I just hope the wind dies down before the Super Bowl tomorrow or the playing conditions will be harsh.
