Timmons Back Nine - Back to Par

I went to Timmons to play the front nine but a guy was teeing off on #2 with five or six discs, so I teed off on #10. I bogeyed #10 and #11 to started off up two strokes. But then I birdied #14 and #17 and parred my way out. That's not a particularly good round but it sure beats what I have been throwing since I started playing again. As I was about to tee off on #11 a fellow from Galveston, TX came over and introduced himself and his girlfriend. They are vacationing in the area and have played… Continue

Timmons Back Nine with Ken and Lynn

I got a voice mail from Cooper as I pulled into Timmons today. He left a message saying that my phone had been disconnected. So I called home and the answering machine picked up. Then I called Copper to see what he was talking about. He had called using my home phone prefix and my cell number. He said that way he would catch me where ever I was! I have been off work for a couple of weeks, so he told me that nothing special was going on there. Ken and Lynn were coming off the front nine as I… Continue

Timmons Front Nine - A Little Improvement

I played the front nine at Timmons today at +2. That isn't much of a score but it's a big improvement over what I have been throwing. My putting was much better today. That is a huge relief as I was starting to believe that I just can't putt. But other than drop-ins I only had 4 putts. I drained two of them from the 15-20 foot range, then I missed one that was off-balance from 25-30 feet out. I finished on 9 with a 20 to 25 foot putt that a tree had the right side of the chains blocked. I had… Continue

Timmons - Back Nine and Still Struggling

I played the back nine at Timmons today and finished at +5. Getting back to playing is much more of a struggle than I anticipated. I'm throwing well enough to score much better, but I am off enough that things really go south on me. After the PCP putting I really thought that my putting would be improved but my putting is worse than ever. I was very confident in my putting after the PCP program but after having this miserable cold I don't know if my putting is off because I am really bad or if… Continue

Timmons - Front Nine and Worse

I threw the front nine at Timmons and was worse than before. I feel like I'm throwing better but I'm far enough off that things turn out badly. I ran into Bill and Carla and Bill Meeks. My neck is still very sore and my right arm feels like I have a belt that is too tight on it. What a bummer!

Even Worse at Timmons

Bill and I played Timmons again today. I threw a gut wrenching 71 with a 7 on #3 and a snowman on #10. My putting was dead straight but I was up and down and the wind was blowing it up and down. I also had some tremendous rollaways today. I had one on #3 and #6 with a pair on #10. After being sick and still fighting with this pinched nerve, I am just jumping in and will have to build from where I am. And I am pretty far behind the curve.

Back to Timmons Park

I called Bill today and he convinced me to play with him at Timmons today. I hadn't played at Timmons since the Queer on the hill finally forced the city to take out much of the course.

I hadn't played at all in 7 weeks and I have had a severe cold for the past 10 days, so I wasn't in very good form. I have also had a pinched nerve in my neck since June and it really weakened my right shoulder. Now is the time to get off my fat duff and start strengthening that shoulder and also… Continue
