I played a quick nine after this afternoon's rain. It was even par with bogeys on 4 and 6 and birdies on 2 and 5. I was throwing okay and should have had a couple of strokes along the way. After the rain with course was very squishy. With rain coming nearly every day the mosquitoes are as big as B-52s. I need to get a can of skeeter repellent.

I went to Greer and played the front nine only. I bogeyed 2 and 3 and birdied 8. I got into poison ivy several times so I didn't wit for it to take hold. So I got home and washed the oil off. I am very sore from the weekend and also feel pretty sore.

I took today off work and was out and about after sleeping in this morning. I passed close to Holmes, so I dropped in and played a quick nine holes. I threw even par with a birdie on #5 and a bogey on #8. Out of the tee I am throwing consistently about 60 feet longer but I have yet to translate the added distance into better scores. I am feeling much more comfortable throwing side-armed instead of back-handed and I'm hitting my marks more consistently. I took Nathan's advice and have been… Continue

After a miserable day at work I went to Century in Greer. Bill and Carla's truck was there and I saw them off in the distance. Bill was just finishing a round with another player after he and Carla had been cleaning out the mess around #10.
I didn't play especially well, but I never do when I have been angry. And I was angry all day at work today. I ended up +7 and only threw one birdie. But it was good to unwind with Bill and Carla.

I went back to Timmons to try the front nine. I ended up at +4, which is a terrible score. But I wasted a lot of strokes on #8 with some indecisive putting. I also had a couple of odd things happen . I am still throwing longer but I was off just enough to cause a lot of trouble. +4 was a bad score even when I was struggling to throw at all. But I felt like the score was an aberration. I birdied #1 and #6, a circle 5 on #5, a 6 on #8, and a 4 on #9.

I finally make it back to Timmons to play. I only wanted to play nine and there was a slow group of young lovers on #1 so I went to the back nine. It has been a long time since I played Timmons and I am throwing much longer than I was before. I ended up +1 for the nine holes, but that was after opening with 3 straight bogeys. I followed them with two birdies and parred my way out. I made a great putt to save par on #16. It was about 35 feet that had to ess right then left around a pair of… Continue
