I am a horrible, horrible player. I'm just getting back into the game after 15ish or so years since the last time I played. Today was a first in that I didn't lose any balls during play.
Full disclosure, we only made it through 7 holes before the course was shut down for weather, but it's not uncommon for me to lose at least 1 ball every hole or two due to high rough or wild shots.
In fact, today not only did I not lose any balls but I actually found a ball so for today I am +1 in the ball count.
Sometimes we have to find the victories where we can, right?
