First Thursday of the year

Tonight me and Dad went out and did the back 9 at Scenic City and we were pleasantly surprised to be joined by Phil from work. the group from work did the front 9 and he joined us at 10. Phil can really hit the ball. dad whacked a few good ones too and i think had a real good time. i hit the ball pretty good but was pretty poor at the short game and ran out of gas down the stretch as i was tired and it was HOT! i got one par and played decent, but bad short game (like i said) can't wait for next week! Holes : 18
Birdies : 0

Golfing with Grandpa Dale

First round of the season with Dale. We did 9 this afternoon at Whispering Hills in Hanover...it was in pretty good shape. I was quite happy with my play, I drove fairly well off the tee, i only 3 putted twice (which was still bad), my most used club was my pitching wedge which means that i did fairly well from far out. no complaints...my touch was poor around the green but that's a recurring problem. lots to build on. weather was good...it was light last night until about quarter to 9 so i think me and Dad may start my adventure of doing 9 holes on Thursday nights after the kids are down...and work is doing something on June 16th at Sauble so i think there will be more golf than last year. 2012 Totals

Dad's gonna pound me

went to the driving range with my father today and (using the driver i bought him for xmas) he hit the hell out of the ball...i sucked as usual :) we're going to play every thursday this year (allegedly) after the kids go down at 6:45 it felt good :)

Me and Dad did 9 at Scenic

me and dad went and did 9 holes at Scenic today. he got 3 birdies (which has got to be a modern day record for us). he hit the long ball good...two of the birdies were on par 5's...he's much better on long irons than i am, even using my own hybrid against me :) i played okay hit some good ones, hit some bad ones. driver was best club...putter was most inconsistent...need to get out more. oh well...maybe in september :)

jeez i'm doing this late

Last Wesnesday me and Dale went to Walkerton to play on the bull tour. I hit the ball further and more consistently with the driver and long irons than i have ever probably...my putting, chipping and short game were TERRIBLE. on #8, a 200 yard par 3 over water, i cracked it with my 3 wood, was a little left, hit a tree and rolled onto the green for a LONG birdie putt...i turned it into a 6. very slow greens, or maybe i just underputted but everything was short. dale hit a LOT of trees...had a great time, can't wait to go out again. Dale had a spare cart so he gave it to Dad, so can't wait to get playing the K106 tour on Thursdays in August with him

Golf golf golf

Me and Dale went golfing yesterday at Ainsdale golf just outside of where they camp in Kincardine. Previous attempts resulted in mother nature raining on us. We did 9 holes at 7:15 in the morning. It's a very nice course...straightforward layout e.g. you could see every flag from the tee on the front 9 except number 2. Number 2, you had to hit it over water, then out of a gulley, then up to the green. Interesting hole. I did okay but Dale was scorching. he had 3 or 4 GIRs i think. My putter was my best club, then my short irons, then my long irons, then by driver. I putted quite well. My driver...everything was to the right...i may have to crack out the Golf yoga again. A lot of fun though...next up is Walkerton with the bull tour on Wednesday
