"A day at the beach"

I was hitting the ball well but the wind was just knocking my ball out of the air like Mutumbo swatted basketballs, ended up in 8 sand traps today.

Hit 4 out of 9 greens on the par four course this morning , just off the edge on 4 others but couldn't score any better than the 33 I got because the greens were wet and like shag carpets.

I had some good shots, some not so good shots, which made it an interesting round. (44/44)

Played in a three man scramble today and made five birdie putts one that was only 2 1/2' and the only reason I got to putt it was both my partners missed. lol

I had a very encouraging 9 holes. (quick 9 before dinner with parents)  My first play since deciding to get back into golf seriously after only playing 2-3 times a year for the last 10 years and first play since starting lessons up again. I had 2 lessons this past month.  41 on a par 34 with only one double bogey.

"From the sublime to the ridiculous!"

Shot 101, with 5 pars & 2 birdies.

Was striking it very well, putting beautifully and generally playing very well. But I really need to learn to take my medicine! Short par 4, only 340 yards but built over a a natural valley, so tight tee short through trees from elevated tee, to a very sloping fairway. Then a blind 2nd over a rise to a tight green with OB left, death right and long.

GREAT hole! Previous few rounds I've gone Par, Birdie, Par on it, so normally play it well enough.

Nope, not this time. Shanked drive into the trees off the tee. Reload, changed to my trusty 2i, massive high slice the other way. Found it on edge of the course, in the deep stuff. This is where I should have taken my medicine, drop out as unplayable and accept the crap score. Nope, I was determined to get it out, had 3 swings at it, steadily driving it deeper into the crap before finally giving up and dropping it as unplayable.

Simple 7i up over the rise to the green now. Nope, wild slice OB! Reload, duffed 20 yards. Then finally decent 9i just short followed by a thinned 60 (which I NEVER do!) over the back, just avoiding the death. Fluffed chip trying to be too cute.

If it wasn't for the deft little 60 and solid 5ft 1 putt, I could have signed for worse than the 14 I signed for! :( EDIT: Which counting back I'm not even sure is correct?

Head was completely off by now obviously so ripped my next drive all of 7 yards, then bludgeoned it along the next for a 9.

So 2 holes of rubbish and I went from 8 over thru 12 to 23 over thru 14. If it wasn't so laughably funny I might have cried.

I appreciate that's not 1 sentence but the story needed to be told!
