I remember those days, lol. My daughter got home after midnight and I didn’t hear her come home. I don’t drink red wine often and this morning my head is reminding me why. Luckily I’m playing golf at the club indoor SIM at 10 am and they have bar service right to the table in the simulator. :)

Had to attend a gut wrenching funeral today for a 14mo old little daughter of a friend of mine. Cant say that I’ve broken down that hard in a long while and it’s been a very tough last 6 mos. saddest funeral I’ve ever been to. Walked away with my wife sobbing and appreciating our little 13mo old and he health that much more. Tough day.
Hugged my 15 month old a little tighter today after reading that

My tee time was 11:08 this morning. My playing partner was my 21 yo son. It was his first time on the course. With a little creative scoring (I stopped counting at double par for a few holes) he shot a 131. Not bad for a beginner. He had a few good shots. He hit 1 that was pured. We both knew it when we heard it. He said he wants to play again.(y)


I figured out my 150 yard club. It's my 7i. It was really nice swinging that club from the white 150 yard pole in the fairway and seeing my ball land on the green. I actually had 3 honest pars. I sniffed birdie a couple of times... but 3 putted the hole.:rolleyes: I shot a 113. Not bad for me... especially not having played golf in almost2 years now. Had it not been for a hero shot where I tried to bump and run with my 7i for 15 yards, some lost balls, and my driver not cooperating... I had a great time.

3 honest pars. <-- That for me is a big thing. Normally my card is 8's, 9's and 10's... that's from doing stupid shots, low percentage of success shots, hero shots and boneheaded moves. Today, I played conservatively, I didn't let my ego take over, and my game reflected that.

Now all I need is a range finder to know how far away I am from the hole and I can figure out how far my other clubs go.:D

Arggggh. We've got at least 4 or 5 weeks more to wait. Was able to get out to the range today since it hit 44 degrees though which felt great. :)

Snow starting to melt here and it is warming up so you never know. Hopefully we dont get a lot of snow in March and we get some March golf in. Temperature wont matter as long as we can get out. Golf outside cant come fast enough especially since we arent taking our annual Scottsdale trip which really breaks up the winter
