I went out with Cheryl today and in addition to playing the round, we had a putting competition. Her idea. We shot the same for nine – 48, but I beat her in putts! I putted 16 times and she wouldn’t tell me what she putted 🙂
I was especially happy with my short irons today. I hit some gorgeous pitches that set up pin-high one putts for me. I also used my long irons for some good recoveries. The strength of my game is in my irons and though it is good that I have go to clubs, I want to expand my consistency to include fairway woods. I’m working on it. I also need to work on close to the green chips and pitches. Cheryl chips like a beast. She really has a touch. Even when she misses a shot it rolls within five feet of the pin! She plays the side boards, the rough, heck she can even use the morning dew to her advantage!
I also finally met the club champion, Jo, and another strong A flight player, Vivian. Cheryl informed me that when those two play, no one talks. I didn’t say anything out loud but that sounds very good to me. I don’t like a lot of chit chat when I’m focusing on shots. Cheryl is as sweet as they come but she is a chatty one. Hopefully I’ll have the pleasure of playing with Jo and/or Vivian soon.
Today is my birthday and I’m playing later with my husband. Best birthday present a girl could want.
