Holiday weekends, some folks should stay at home. 

My wife had to go to super market, and I decided to tag along. Since it was on the way I had her drop me off at golf course. I would hit a few putts while she did her shopping. 

As we pulled into the golf parking lot, just about every parking place was taken. A busy place to say the least. 

The practice green is near the 6th hole. At one point there were 10 carts in n line. Yep, a huge back up to be sure. This back up was also near the club house. Folks were bitching up a storm. Arguing with each other. Yelling at the guys who were waiting in the fairway. They even got a couple of employees out of the club house, and yelled at them. There was some heavy duty name calling going on. 

Me, I thought it was a bit on the entertaining side. Thinking to myself, "what did they expect"? It's a three day weekend for crying out loud. It's suppose to be pleasent day off from the Monday grind at work. 

I realize this is the official start of summer, but some folks are just not prepared for the crowds. Full parking lots should be the first clue, as to how busy it is.

My wife arrived to pick me up. She proceeded to tell me about the arguments going on in the parking lot at the super market. Pissed off folks in line, waiting to check out. Folks cutting off others.Folks with boats taking up 4-5 parking places, and others blocking them in by parking too close. It was a mad house. 

Yeah, we both agreed that some folks should just stay home on long weekends. We will be going to dinner in a little bit, and "gawd damn it" there better be some parking places available ....lol 😃

That's funny. There were about five cars in the parking lot when @NatalieB and I went to play golf today. :-) We played nine holes and except for a single that skipped a hole to pass us by, we didn't see anyone else on the course.

In Michigan, you don't travel on US23 or I75 north on Friday or south on Sunday.   The people that travel up north drive like idiots.   A two hour trip takes 5 hours of stop and go traffic on the xway.   We stay home to avoid all of  traffic since this weekend and Labor Day traffic are the year's worse in Michigan.   Road rage at its finest.

    • Day 85: A bit of putting practice after getting home from a long travel day. 
    • I am still searching for a “drop in handicap.” My game seems to be improving but I am still not scoring lower. Can’t explain it.
    • I remember going through those types of situations. A combination of perhaps a fear of damaging the beautiful turf and not having some taller grass to support the ball up off the solid ground. Hitting out of the rough allows more leeway or room for error. during one such period I went to the range and spent quite a while brushing the turf between each shot to get familiar with what I had to work with and get comfortable with a tight lie. eventually you will come to realize that it really comes down to developing a consistent low point to the swing through lots of practice. 
    • Day 116 (23 Oct 21) - worked w/putter and straight edge.  Used both the DF992 and White Steel #5 - big difference in feel.  Drills were to overcome the push I tend to see.  More work needed, but the straightedge does provide the right feedback. 
    • I have been playing on a couple of inexpensive courses to learn , I played on an expensive country club course today and the fairways were in better condition than the greens at the courses I usually play. Very short grass.   I had a very very hard time hitting off these fairways ,  I had been getting into a groove on the lesser courses and my play was rapidly improving with my off fairway approach game being the best part of my game. I went from hitting at least 10 80 to 100 yard shots in a round onto the green from the fairway to hitting maybe 3 of 13 of them today. My hits were a medley of ground balls , tops, and other disasters.    The only grass range I have access to has very coarse rough type grass , should I just practice taking some exaggerated divots on it ? I read about playing a tee 8” or so in front of the ball to practice hitting ahead of it. Open to any other suggestions. Today was humbling.
