The wind was your friend that day, perhaps?
Wonderful shot. Congrats on the eagle!

Not great. 78 with one birdie. The score doesn't sound bad but this group plays the short tees so not really that good. Played much better earlier this week. But, there is always tomorrow.

I can't play with you guys, I'm not that good........

I would guess if I played a lot, I could get down to a 7 or 8 handicap, probably around a 13 now........

You could easily play with this group. Out of 12 golfers in our normal gang of guys, I'm considered the best. Another guy is real close and then it drops off from there. We have a couple of 'oldies' that can't hit it out of their shadow.

I usually play from the blue tees, so you say I can move up to white? Then, I'm there..........

I have two more scrambles next week, so we'll see how it goes. I'm usually brought for my distance, wonder what will happen when 280 yards plus goes away, maybe no more scrambles......

Nah, 4 iron is only 205 or so......

With my scramble winnings ($100 in the golf shop), I was able to pick up a new 60 degree Vokey Titleist wedge, man it hits sweet........

I never have played golf, but I've driven the beer cart a couple of times.

I never said my 4 iron flew straight........

Before I took some lessons and figured out what I was doing wrong, my golfing buddies used to say: "NOONE hits it farther OB than you, NOBODY.........

We played a course in central Wisconsin once that had a bunch of homes being built along a fairway on a par 5. I hit the ball so far left it missed the house and hit a pickup on the street to the left of the house. I figured I hooked the ball almost 100 YARDS that day.......
