The golf gods are continuing to shower me with golf’s most wonderful blessings.
I am enjoying this fortune while it lasts! I am hitting the ball better than ever, farther AND more accurate. My woods are steadfast and reliable. My irons have come back – at least mid to short irons. Long irons only come out of the bag when I get under trees or land in nasty divots and for all else in that distance range I use my Taylormade 4 Hybrid burner. Oh my that is one bad ass club. I love it so much.
I played nine with Cindy again today. The stat that has me beaming the most is that I hit six greens in regulation IN A ROW. I couldn’t miss. All my tee shots were at least decent and I was nailing the approaches – just nailing them. Irons, hybrid, didn’t matter. I’ve never repaired so many ball marks in a row.
I ended up shooting 39, a very good score for me. Sadly I didn’t convert any of the six birdie opportunities I had but I did manage to par five of nine holes. I made an unfortunate double on the first hole and bogeys on the three remaining because of putts that didn’t fall. They were good putts – just didn’t drop.
This was a second very good day in a row. I am sad to see the season coming to an end. Will I be able to maintain this good place over the winter? Well if I have anything to say about it, yes. None of this is by chance. I’ve worked my butt off at this game.
In a year’s time I have come a long, long, L O N G way.
