Holmes with Nick

Nick, a buddy from work and I went to Holmes Park after work to play a couple of nine hole rounds. Nick has never played before so he wanted to give it a try. I didn't play very well, but we had a good time flinging discs. I was even par the first time around with a birdie on 7and a bogey on 8. The second time around I missed the mando on 3 for a double bogey. I also bogeyed 4 by missing a borderline putt, but I got in back on 6 with a line straight putt. Nick hit a couple of long putts and was… Continue

Greer with Bill & Carla and Dillon

I called Bill and met him and Carla in Greer for a round tonight. While we were teeing off Dillon, one of the kids that hangs out at the park, came running over wanting to play with us. Dillon is a kid that doesn't throw well at all, but he talks incessantly and takes forever to throw. He also pesters us while we are trying to throw. So a round with Dillon is an exercise in patience.

I was throwing a fair round (for me), but the wheels came off at the end of the round. I missed a par… Continue

Gower - Erica and Basketball

Erica and I went back to Gower tonight and went around twice. I was even par both times with a birdie on 4 and a bogey on 5 then a birdie on 3 and a bogey on 4 again. I am struggling with my tee shot on 5, but once I get it back I will get that hole. I took a large bag and we hauled two bags of trash out of the woods. It is still full of beer cans. They were playing softball on the field along 8 and that really bothers me while teeing off. I should have birdied 8, but I didn't.

After… Continue

Gower in the Rain with Erica

Erica and I met to play at Gower this evening. I threw for a while waiting for her and it started raining once she arrived. We waited a few minutes and the rain cleared up so we started off. The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th holes play in heavy woods and once we were in there we could hear the rain start up again and was falling on the canopy of trees. We finished the 4th and could see that it was coming down pretty good, so we stopped at a nearby picnic shelter and waited it out. After about 5 minutes the… Continue

Greenville Middle, No, Holmes Park - Erica

Erica and I met at Greenville Middle to throw on the field, but they had the sprinklers on. So we went to Holmes Park to play a couple of rounds. I was even after the first 9 holes with a bogey on 4 and a birdie on 9. We ran into Steve and Faith Greene out for their constitutional and I gave them a "Hooty- Hoo!" We went around again and I was -2 with birdies on 2, 3, and 7 and a bogey on 8.

Erica is improving. She is starting to keep her score and not just throw. If she'll play more… Continue

Timmons - Erica, Coop, and Tyler

We went to Timmons tonight for the first time is ages. I used to play there nearly every day but since the man on the hill forced the city to modify the course and tried to close the park I have pretty much quit going there. Erica and I started off and Steve had called and said that he would be there later. We piddled around and were on hole #3 when Steve arrived with his nephew Tyler. They caught up to us and we started off on #4. I played the front at -1 and the back at +2 to end up with a 55… Continue

Solo at Holmes

I went to Holmes this evening for a quick round. Erica said that she was going to play but I rightfully doubted her. Steve also wanted to play, but with him working the graveyard it is hard for him to get out around his sleep. I can truthfully say "Been there - done that, took two pictures, don't wanna go back." So I totally sympathize with him. I only went around once for nine holes and threw a 25 for -2. I birdied 2, 5, and 6 while I bogeyed 3.

I threw a three new discs that I… Continue

Chains of Hope - Greer

I played in the Chains of Hope charity tournament in Greer today. There were only two seniors, Armand and me. There was only one woman, Danielle. So they put Danielle with Armand and me. We called it the Senior Woman's division. Armand and I threw identical scores. He beat me by two strokes in the morning and I beat him by two strokes in the afternoon. I threw a 57 and a 53. I didn't buy any mulligans for the morning round and I bought 5 for the afternoon. I used all five although one did me no… Continue
