This one's for Steven, a good buddy for years. He was playing in a tournament 20+ years ago on Springfield CC in West Springfield, MA. The first and tenth tee run parallel with the 1st hole a slightly more doglegged to the the left. A drive off the tenth tee nailed him on the 1st fairway in the back of his head. He first dropped to his knees and finally to the ground. As the story goes, him relating it, that his first reaction was he was hit in the back of the head by a...
Shot a 46-41-87 yesterday. 72.1/131. A lot of wind. Opposite direction from Thursday round. Rough high for Sony. Ball drops deep and never sits up. I'm definitely not unhappy. Missed a 5ft birdie putt on 10. (The 1st during the Sony). Index now 14.7 Hdcp 17. "Rough" day for Sandy.
Shot a 45-48-93 yesterday in perfect weather, little or no wind at Waialae CC with the rough getting up there for the Sony. Today I shot a 39-42-81 at the same club with wind. (9 pars, 1 birdie). A net 64! SandbaggerOne can't explain it. My handicap index went up to 14.7 and course handicap a 17 on January 1st...I guess I really am a Sandbagger!

Shot a smooth 99 (44-55) yesterday. Waialae is getting ready for the Sony. The rough near the greens ate me alive. Ten feet off #14, (425 yd, par 4) in two. Chunk first chip (still in rough). Three feet off green now and double hit chip across green 30'  from pin, now in short rough. three more to get down. An 8. Had three 8's on the back.. Ugh! Painful! How does one do that? Let me count the ways.
Played yesterday and shot a smooth 100. 43 putts. Rough and greens getting ready for the Sony Open. Guess I'm not ready for the tour. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year or as we say Mele Kalikimaka and Kau'oli Makahiki Hou! A safe, happy and healthy New Year from Sandbaggeranonymous.com℠
Tournament season closed down in the north. Any stories from your past are helpful. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
No golf game. Snowed in in Pennsylvania. Ugh! Leave for South Carolina Sunday and golfing in a Member-Guest Tuesday to Thursday. Hooray!!! Til' then a Happy Thanksgiving to all!
Shot 91 yesterday 49-42 on Longmeadow CC (1927 Donald Ross). Best fall day in my memory banks. New England golf at it's best! Played with two old buddies Chris "Gags" Gagne, Paul Quinn (an institution at the club) and long ball hitter and Head Pro Tim Quirk. Golf game could have been better but the day could not have!
Subject: Fwd: Ten Best Caddy Responses . .   Number: 10  Golfer:    "I think I'm going to drown myself in the lake." Caddy:    "Think you can keep your head down that long?"           Number: 9 Golfer:    "I'd move heaven and earth to break 100 on this course." Caddy:    "Try heaven, you've already moved most of the earth."             Number: 8 Golfer:    "Do you think my game is improving?" Caddy:    "Yes . . . . You miss the ball much closer...
Played yesterday and shot 87 (45-42). Couldn't putt. 6 GIR's and only three pars and a birdie. Couldn't get up and down from close off the green 0-3. Won large groups low net 71 and took cash. Unfortunately came out on short end of drinks and pupus (appetizers)
