Man, I can't wait, it's almost that time again to head down to Wimberley, Texas. From what I hear, the creek and ponds have water in them this year which should make the tournament even more fun. It's been a couple years since I've played with the waterfall flowing so I'm looking foward to that for sure.
I didn't play last year as my partner, Tom Langley wanted to play the Amateur Texas State Doubles instead. We did okay considering we took on some penalty strokes because of our stupidity. Oh, the life of a amateur player. We're going to have to listen a little closer during the players meeting this time around.
This year will be Tom's first year of Masters play since he turns forty this year. He's got a bum shoulder but hopefully that won't hurt us too bad and I can get the putter hot to cover for that and any other shortcummings. I haven't looked at the players list yet so I'm not sure how we stack up, but I've never really worried about that.
I'm going to head down to the ranch on Thursday night to set up camp with Drew and Andy. They are a couple of the local Weatherford guys I play with quite a bit. Joel and Adam may go down early as well and we'll play a little herd golf for our practice round. I've got a stack of old firewood I'm going to take to so we don't have to scavenge for wood.
My game is improving a little bit but still not where it was and should be. I'm going to have to break down and go see a foot specialist and figure out if it's just bone spurs or something more serious. I can get through eighteen holes with no problem, even twenty seven really but that back nine of the second round starts to hurt. My putter has been the saving grace lately as it has been on more than off.
Oh well, a little more than a week left and then I'm headed south. Should be a lot of fun, can't wait to see old friends and make some new ones.
