Gower Park

Coop an I played 18 holes at Gower tonight. I was +2 and +1 to end up at +3. The first time around I birdied #3, then bogeyed #5 and #6. The second time around I bogeyed #5. We saw that another player was playing behind us, but with my vision it was hard to see who it was. As we finished Steve said that he thought that it was Craig with a C. We had met him at Timmons a couple of weeks ago. Steve was tired and needed to get home for some sleep and I waited for Craig to come around. We had a very… Continue

Tonight was pretty uneventful. The weather had been wet and even though the sun came out after work the course was very wet and it was also very windy out. Neither Bill or Steve came out tonight, so I played one round by myself. I threw a +4 but didn't play nearly as bad as that score would indicate. I should have birdied #2 but short-armed a 20 foot putt. My tee shot on #4 was very good, but the wind caused me to whiff on two putts for a bogey. The tee shot on #5 was also caught by the wind… Continue

Holmes Park

I played 18 holes at Holmes today and finished at even par. I played the first four holes and ran into Ken and Lynn playing tennis. They said that they'd come over and play a round with me. I finished that round at -1. I hit the basket pole with my tee shot and birdied that hole. I parred everything else. Ken and Lynn were waiting for me at the fist tee box and we played 9 more holes. I started off by hitting a tree and going OB for a double bogey. Then I bogeyed #4 and #5 to go +4. I birdied… Continue

Gower Not Timmons

We went to Timmons to play our regular Tuesday/Thursday round and found that the city has removed the 15th and 16th baskets and closed the fairways. Unless the city straightens out the course I am done with it. The city has modified the course 4 times so that the guy up the hill can annex 4 acres of park property and consider it his own. A judge has ordered him to stop and desist with his harassment of disc golfers and he has been arrested for shooting his pellet gun at disc golfers. Unless the… Continue

Holmes Park with Big WInd

I stopped by Holmes this morning coming back from seeing Wayne's mother and L.C. at the North Greenville Long Care Facility. I didn't realize that the wind was howling until I got out to play. I threw a sidearm on #1 that was beyond the basket. I normally would be 40 to 60 feet short of the basket there. I had a strong look at a birdie there but I was locked against a tree and had to straddle putt in a howling cross wind from about 20 feet. It hit the left side of the chains and fell out. #2… Continue

Gower Park

Coop and his nephew Ty and I played Gower tonight. I started off with three straight horrible tee shots - one side arm, one thumber, and one back hand that brought on three bogeys. I then parred the rest of the round to end up +3. I played the 2nd nine even with a birdie on #4 and a bogey on #5. Other than that it was non-eventful.

Timmons Park

Bill, Steve, and I played 18 holes then Bill and I played the front 9 a second time. I was cruising along the fist time around at -2 after 6 holes when the bottom fell out. 7, 8 , and 9 are all birdie holes and I bogeyed them all. Then I took a double bogey on 11 and 12 while I didn't birdie 13. I bogeyed 14 then settled down for the rest of the round. I birdied 15, missed very makable birdie putts on 16 and 17 then parred 18. Steve left to get his day's sleep and I birdied 1, 2, and 9 on the… Continue

Timmons Park

Wow! Bill and Steve and I played Timmons tonight. I was +13 which is the worst that I have played Timmons in several years. My sidearm was awful and my putter tanked on me. But it was more a case of little things just eating me up. Everything that could happen did - roll aways, through the chains putts,and creek shots galore. Bill aced #13 tonight. That was the highlight of the round. I had three triple bogeys #5, 6, 18. On #5 my tee shot hit a tree on the left side of the fairway and hit four… Continue

Timmons Park

I was ugly tonight at Timmons. I played with Bill and Steve and ended up +4. I also saw Ken and Lynn leaving the park as I was coming in. I was +5 on the front nine. I birdied #2, then on #5 I teed off and the wind took it across the creek for an OB. I ended up with a triple bogey 6 there. On #6 I went for a long putt and missed the basket completely which left me with an even longer come backer that I missed. As I threw my tee shot on #8 a lady's dog ran out in front of me and I threw wildly… Continue

Holmes Park

I played 9 holes at Holmes today and finished at +1. I should have finished -1, but ran into trouble on the last hole. I bogeyed #2. I teed off with my Stratus throwing an anhyzer to the left of the trees. It went about a third of the way down then suddenly popped up high and flattened out and floated OB into the street. On 4 I had a very good tee shot for me and tried to skip a low thumber to the hole, But it hit a root and hopped up into a leafed branch and fell about 40 feet short of the… Continue
