    A golf first - no lost balls

    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?

    Congrats! It's always nice to end with the same bullet with which you started.

    Awesome. I know the first time I made it through a round with the same ball I was so proud of myself. I also felt really good about making it through an entire 18 holes with the same ball on a really tough Haig Point course. Little accomplishments like that are great!

    It's a pretty darn good feeling to not lose a ball during a round. Congrats.
