Yes I know, none of you care. Yes I’m aware that everyone else thinks golf is for old geezers and boring ones at that.
But dad gum it, I’m going to make a golf thread anyway. HAHAHAHA.
Went out to play today in beautiful weather, sunny, not too much wind. As soon as I stepped onto the first tee box, the wind speed shot up 10mph and kept on climbing all day. GRUMBLE, CURSE WORDS, GRUMBLE SOME MORE.
NINE KAGILLION PEOPLE ON THE COURSE. All moving slower than my Aunt Louise’s pet turtle. MORE GRUMBLING
The two guys I got paired with hit the ball a ton. I’m the embarrassingly short hitter all day. Wonderful. But I’m playing ok. Yeah yeah, I could have done without hitting it sideways into the water on number 3. But I nearly made a hole in one on number 4!!!
I make it through the front nine only 2 over. Then the wheels fall off. 5 more strokes over par on the next 5 holes. I’m dying off…
Then something happens, something that never, ever happens. I start playing better at the end of the round. Four straight pars, including two on the hardest holes on the course. Ended the round with a 79—the first time I’ve broken 80 this year! Happy happy joy joy.
So thanks for listening. You can make fun of the old geezer golfer now.
