Spring right around the corner.

What a great winter we have had this year. Been really mild do in part to the La Nina in the Pacific keeping the Jetsteam at bay. Cece played basketball again and I was assistant coach again. This was the first year her team won enough games to be over .500. I am excited for them. Their year end party is this upcoming Sunday. Should be a good time as it's girls against the coaches in a cage deathmatch brawl. Cece is now moving onto golf and has been working on her game. The plan is to do a series of lessons and drills to get her ready for some local tourneys this summer. That is around swim team of course. My game is starting to really come together as I have started to get my mechanics put back together after a rough fall and winter of little golf and zero practice time. Can't wait for tourney time this year!

Holidays over. Great time!

Another holiday season has passed. I have just about got all of the Christmas decorations down and stored away for next year. Had a great time saw bunches of family and consumed too much decadent food and drink. Ain't life grand! Wishing you and your family a Happy New Year!

Holiday's are here!

Can't believe that Christmas is just a few days away. Weather has been great but busy with family and work so I haven't been on the links much at all lately. Will be getting out there on Saturday to try to enjoy some golf before it gets cold. That means low 60's.

Wow I haven't posted in quite some time. I haven't been golfing much as of late due to family and work constraints. A few things that have been going on. I got in on the HP Touchpad deal and what a deal it is. My daughter's summer swim team went undefeated in their summer swim league and took the city championship for the first time! I have gotten my Chevelle over to my house and have started working on a few more issues. Rust around the back window is holding up my completion and getting back on the road. Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas and Happy Channukah!

Third Member Guest Tourney

This one is at my home course Coosaw Creek Country Club. Unlike the previous two this is stroke play best ball. Had long time friend Kevin Harley as my partner. We were 4th team in the second flight. I hadn't golfed with Kevin in a couple of years and my game has changed quite a bit since then. First day out we spent most of the time talking trash, reliving glory days and not playing great golf. We were fourth in the standings.

Second day out I wanted to focus more and play better than my 89 on Saturday. We started on hole thirteen for the second day. I birdied it with an aggressive 25' off the back of the hole putt. Played decent all day except for 3 holes. I was four over for fifteen holes and 8 over on those three. Shot an 83 team score was 79 and we came in 2nd net for our flight.

Great time, great food.

2nd Member guest tourney

This time I am back in Mt. Pleasant, SC over at Dunes West Country Club. Playing with a long time friend Tom Parker who just became a golf member at Dunes West.

Tourney is huge, 48 teams tons of prizes given away and raffles for more.

We are a combined 34 handicap and it puts us in the 7th flight. We again do a team matchplay format with a twist. It is a combined scores for each player on each hole. We end up 3rd in our flight.

Shootout takes for ever as it starts with 16 teams with each guy playing his own ball.

Great food, tons of drinks... great time!

First Member Guest tourney of the year.

This one is hosted at Rivertowne Country Club in Mt. Pleasant, SC. My brother in law Mike has invited me back this year. Our combined handicap for the tourney is 17. He has played 1 round this year so it should be fun.

We are flighted in the first flight. It has 6 team flights and you play match play versus the other flights. First day we go 7 out of 10 and in the other two we go 7.5 out of ten and we hold a 2.5 point lead.

Sunday we play the team that is in second place first. We win the match 6 to 4 and only need 2 points to win our flight in the last match. We had a lot of fun as we are just waiting for the shootout to begin.

Shootout! We have to wait for 10 tee shots before we get to go. Stood up on my drive and lost it way right. Mike pulls his left in the water we are done.

Had a great time, ate a ton of food. Paramutal betting doesn't pay off for crap as there was plenty of bets on us.

Now time to get ready for next weekends tourney.

Ouch hurt my back

Hurt my back during the week and tried to golf this weekend. I was only able to make a half swing with a flip at the end. I was struggling to get off the tee box. The only thing that was working was chipping and putting. I did discover on hole twelve that if I set up with an open stance and swing I was able to get all the way through and get my hands up behind my head. So I started playing for a fade and was able to finish the round with much less pain.

It also didn't help much with the 95* heat and+90% humidity. I lost like 12 pounds walking 18.
