@Buckeyebowman A coon's age 😂 Just picturing Carrie Coon saying 'I'm not that old'! But that's it, golf's such a funny sport in that some evenings I finish work, exhausted after a long week, can't wait to get to the course, if only for a 90 mins practice ahead of weekend's comps. Come Saturday morning, I roll out of bed, thinking is it poor form to call in sick to my partners, which of course it is, so I don't. There's so many aspects to enjoying golf, mental, physical, social, even weather implications. I really don't think there's something else where so many things need to be a certain way for it to 'work'. But then a lot of my best rounds have been after deciding at the last minute 'Ya, might as well play today', and a Rory-esque dash to the course (no escort sadly!). But on your last point, I no longer beat myself up about when things go funky at the end of a session. If I was playing a field sport I'd simply be subbed off, there's no hiding on a golf course!
What's the name of that course by the way, would like a nose online 🕵️♂️ The course I work at was actually redesigned by a certain Mr Augusta national, Muskerry GC, well worth a snoop.
You notice a huge difference in the softness in the fairways. Not nearly the runout and the greens are very soft this morning. Good conditions for some scoring on the front. Tiger needs to take advantage. So far a lot of the more prominent players getting in the hunt now.
