Bill and I got together for our normal Tuesday/Thursday rounds. We put in 36 holes at Gower. I was +1, +3, +1, and -1. I really struggled with the release angle on my sidearm last night. Also my lower back is really bothering me and I can't turn to throw backhanded. I had an appointment with Paula for a massage, but she called and said that she wouldn't be at the shop the rest of the week. I need to start throwing a thumber again, but there aren't many thumber throws at Gower.

Bill and I got together again and went around Gower 4 times. I was +2,-2,+1, and +1 to end up at +2 for 36 holes. As we approach summer the poison ivy is getting stronger and stronger over there. You sure don't want to get into the woods along #5 or over throw the 5th basket. There is also a lot of it on the 7th fairway and in the woods along the 7th. Dave Delgado (an assistant baseball coach at Furman) was waling laps while we were playing. I talked to him for a couple of minutes. There were… Continue

I stopped at Crooked Creek on m way home from Charleston. I knew that there was a tournament going on and I followed Bill around the last 7 holes of the morning round. I met Mike and Steve that he was playing against in the grand masters division. I also had a chance to talk with John and Christine Wright. I always like to stop and chat with them. Bill won the Grand Masters and had a good time playing with those guys.

Furman was knocked out of the SoCon Tournament today and I have a room through tomorrow morning. That left me just enough time to play the 9 holes at Park Circle this afternoon. It is an interesting little course played around the outside of a traffic circle. The terrain is very flat (as is most of Charleston) but it plays through and around a lot of trees and vegetation. But I found it to be at least as interesting as Gower Park and Holmes Park in Greenville.
If I lived in or around… Continue

I'm in Charleston for a few days to follow Furman in the SoCon Baseball Tournament. They played a very ugly game yesterday against Appalachian State, but ended up winning with two outs in the bottom of the 10th on a grand slam by Bobby Hubbard. That was a very exciting finish to a very poorly played game. I headed out to find West Ashley Park this morning and play a round there. I have been to Trophy Lakes before and felt like I didn't want to go play across and along all that water. So I… Continue

Bill and I played 36 holes tonight. I was -2,+3, +2, and even. I still have the added distance on my sidearm but I did have some consistency trouble with it. Bill, Carla, and I always have a good time playing and joking our way around the course. We are both thinking about playing in a small unsanctioned event at Anderson this weekend. Bill has played the course before, but I have never even seen it.
Once the college baseball season is over I should have more time to get out and… Continue

Bill and I finally got back together for our Thursday round at Gower. We went around four times and I was +2, +1, -2, and +1. I should have been -1 on the fourth round, but I ran into trouble on the last hole. There was a bunch of Hispanic kids playing along the right side of the fairway that forced me to stay left. I barely crossed the outfield fence and went OB. I was still there for my bogey. I putted into the chains but my disc caught a gust of wind and hit the chains flat and the chains… Continue
