    I tied my all time low score Sunday. I carded an 81. Not a bad score considering how crappy I have been playing as of late. My previous round just two days prior I shot a 101.

    My game has been pretty bad this last year. My index was at an all time low of 14.2 in Aug 2014 and went up to a high of 19.3 in Feb 2015. I am currently at a 17.1. I am hopeful that Sunday's 81 is not a fluke and I may have finally figured out a way to keep me from blowing up and causing high scores.

    Here are my stats for 2015:
    39 Rounds of Golf (not including 9 hole rounds)
    Low Score: 81 (previous low was 86)
    High Score: 106
    Average Score: 95
    Rounds in the 80's: 6
    Rounds in the 100's: 7

    You beat your best round by 5 shots!! Wow, that's fantastic. Good for you.

    I've been battling a torn rotator cuff. After a couple of months I was feeling better, but after some vigorous/enthusiastic love making I made it much worse. I'm now immobilized and might miss the whole summer. - Dang.

    Nice. My home course is losing its greens for the 3rd year in a row. It sucks. Someday I'll join a nicer club.

    Excellent. I quite enjoy hearing the positive results from my fellow golfing cuffers.

    I myself have been playing better of late. Monday I threw down a 42-36 for a 78. That was with a triple on number 1 and a double on number 9.

    Down to a 12 handicap. I would like to get into the single digits again.

    When you play the same course 4-5 times a week, your handicap is understated when you take the game on the road.

    I also got some pleasure out of finding out one of my 14 year old grandsons is working at a golf course and taking up the game. The smile on his face when I gave him my two year old set of Taylor Made Speed Slots was special for me.

    That set May or may not have been missing a 6 iron right? Or was it 7?

    Eugene CC??

    For those of you elsewhere, Eugene CC was one of the top 100 courses in America for like a 100 years. You've arrived Husky.

    Wait. You might miss the whole summer of golf? Or the whole summer of...


    So - I have a friend who after their firstborn child heard the doctor say that they shouldn't have sex for 46 weeks. His wife laughs that he turned white as a sheet.

    Of course, what the doctor really said was four to six.

    It's been an up and down year for me. I decided to play in my company golf league this year partnering with my brother. My handicap is really high right now at 15. One good thing is had been winning all of my head to head match ups and my brother and I were in second place. Two weeks ago I killed it (for me) and finished with a 42. Unfortunately that altered my handicap a bit. Golf can be cruel and instead of building on my success I ended up with my worst score of the season. The loss dropped us to fourth place. Hopefully today sees me back on the comeback trail.

    In other news I snapped the shaft on my R11 driver. Golf Galaxy talked me into a different shaft. I noticed when I got the club back it was at least an inch shorter than the stock shaft. I'm wondering if they hosed me and gave me a shaft that should belong on a 3 wood.

    Had it going pretty good yesterday. 1 over going into 16. Easy par 5. Good drive, take out lay up club and chunk it. Still only 160 out but bad lie. Hit it in water and double bogey. Follow up with a double and a bogey to finish at 78. Still good for me, but could have been really good.

    We were playing lift clean and place in fairways.

    Sorry. Your orientation must have got you discombobulated. They've got lots of water on that course.

    Vacation week. Zion National Park. Was able to sneak in a round at Sky Mountain in Hurricane on Tuesday. That course has amazing views and greens were in great condition. Shot my 3rd lowest round at 84. Putter was hot with only 30 putts. Now if only I could increase my GIR

    Had a good time golfing with Donut and fus this weekend in Vegas. I put up back to back rounds in the 80s, also a round over 100, so kind of like a round of craps.

    My most excellent former bishop called last night and twisted my arm so I blew off work this morning and joined his foursome at the nearby CC. He and his son are 6's, and he paired his son with me against him and the visiting Mark Bigelow (he's working back east for three years or so but supposedly will return), who's still a very good dude.

    My team was down by a lot midway through, in large measure because I was sucking. But I parred five of the last seven and we pulled it out on the last hole. It was surprisingly intense, as the other three were VERY competitive. But I got into the spirit of things and just before a critical putt by Bigs, I whispered "Lonnie Dixon," resulting in a crucial miss. At the outset our host said we were playing for $1,000 a point, so I'm up a couple of grand, which is nice.

    Edit: Lest I be misunderstood, in truth my winnings consisted of a post-round Diet Coke.

    I played with Tick at Hobble Creek on Friday. He played well. I didn't.

    It rained the entire time.

After he got done laughing, Mark said that ESPN ripped on him during the game, but when replay analysis later showed the Dixon had, in fact, blown his whistle and Bigelow had committed no foul, ESPN's announcers at the next game apologized to him at great length, almost as if he was going to sue them for defamation. He just laughs it off now.

    BTW, this from the Wikipedia entry on Lonnie Dixon:

    Dixon was suspended by the Mountain West Conference in February 2004 for "inadvertently" blowing his whistle during a BYU/New Mexico basketball game, but did not admit to it during the game. The whistle caused BYU player Mark Bigelow to believe play was stopped and stepped on the court from the bench. Bigelow was called for a technical foul, and New Mexico eventually beat BYU 65-63. Dixon was not allowed to call his next 2 games, as well as the Mountain West Conference Tournament.
    Dixon died four years ago, btw.

    I am back to playing to somewhere between a 16-18. After shooting my all time low I followed it up with a few rounds in the 90's. I was talked into playing in our city amateur but had to play to a 10. I came in dead ass last carding a 97/106 over 2 days.

    Played on the best conditioned course I personally have ever played yesterday. Wow! I didn't want to walk on the fairways or create a divot. Absolutely beautiful. Didn't hurt that I played under my handicap by 7 strokes with a 83. Red Rock Country Club/Mountain Course

    That turf looks artificial. I don't see how any turf in America cold be better than that picture. What do the greens look like?
