Club Championship - Round 1




I started with a birdie and ended with birdie. .. In between was total, unrelenting horse shit.

The whole plan this weekend was to hit the 3W off the tee. It seemed ok on the range in my warm up, I got away with a push on No.1 and made birdie with really solid 5W and 8I shots. Then everything fell apart. Went OB three times before I started hitting the 5W off the floor. Ended up with a 102.

True to advertised, these guys who entered this Club Championship are definitely players. The board was almost all 70s and 80s. Some poor bastard in the senior divisions shot a 91 and still beat me by 11.

I can't get off the tee and that's most of it. All the penalty strokes (4 if I remember right) were off the tee. This past two weeks I tried to work with the 3W and actually felt ok about it until the fourth hole. Then it all dissolved. Thought now is just hitting 5W off the floor like I did on 18.

For what its worth, I kept my pace, held my temper ok and my partners were very nice. Got em a beer on No. 19.

I got a real god-damned problem hitting a ball off a tee. I'll just try to make the best of it tomorrow and do the best I can.

I’m reminded by Teddy Roosevelt ...

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."
