After Thanksgiving dinner with my friend Short Bobby and his family I drove over to the Easley course to play a few holes before sunset. I arrived after 4:30 and the course was covered up with large groups of newbies playing. They all seemed to be having a good time with a new game. I hope to see many of them back as regular players in the future.
I played holes 1 - 5 and 15 - 18 or what I call the Short Nine. I ended up +5 but really didn't play that poorly. I did putt that poorly… Continue

I took today and tomorrow off work to burn my annual leave down to the maximum carry over for the year. I thought that I would call Bill and go to Greer to try the new layout, but it was raining this morning. I called Bill late in the morning and we checked the radar and decided to give it a try in the early afternoon. We arrived and started playing when another car pulled up and a guy started playing.

I played the front nine at Timmons alone today. It was pretty windy but playable. I teed into the creek on #2 and fought the windy to take a circle 5 on it. I also bogeyed #4 while fighting the wind and took a double on #5. I birdied #6 with a 40 foot putt and parred my way out. I found a disc on #6 and found its owner while leaving the park. I tried throwing back handed a couple of times and felt better, but my arm still goes dead after each backhanded throw.
