Wow! Bill and Steve and I played Timmons tonight. I was +13 which is the worst that I have played Timmons in several years. My sidearm was awful and my putter tanked on me. But it was more a case of little things just eating me up. Everything that could happen did - roll aways, through the chains putts,and creek shots galore. Bill aced #13 tonight. That was the highlight of the round. I had three triple bogeys #5, 6, 18. On #5 my tee shot hit a tree on the left side of the fairway and hit four wheel drive mode to work its way into the creek. On #6 my tee shot was wide right, so I used a drop 'n flop putt to stay close, but it caught an edge and rolled at least 100 feet down the hill and into the creek. On #18 my tee shot went into the creek. Then I threw straight down the creek to stay in it. I was also in the creek on #8 and #10. What a round!
After such a terrible round I couldn't leave the course like that. Bill and I stayed and played the front nine again and I was -3 on it. Even though I was bogey free on those holes, I was in the creek twice. #2 and #9 tee shots both found water and I putted in to save par of both of them. I birdied #1, 3, and 6.
That means that I was in the creek 8 times in 27 holes. That has to be some kind of record! Sometimes I threw into the creek (#10 and #18 twice), sometimes a tree put me into the creek (#2 and #9), and sometimes the discs had to grow legs and run to get there (#5, #6, and #8)! I'm just glad that round is behind me.
