Just back from the course. The plan was to play 9, and then another 9, but after the first 9 a friend showed up with a tee time for 18. So 27 today, walking. I am worn out!
The first 9 started out par-birdie-birdie. The first time in my life I've been 2 under par. And I normally manage a couple of birdies a YEAR. So heck of a start! Followed with a double, of course :-) First time in my life I'd been at par after 4.
Then there was the 9th hole. A par 4 -- for me, a layup before the lake and hope to get out with a bogie. Decent layup. Second shot into the lake. Shrug it off, drop, fourth into the lake. Scream a little, drop, sixth into the lake. Call it done.
We get to the same hole at the end of the 18. Decent layup. Second shot into the lake. First time in my life I've hit four balls into the same lake in a day. Right in the middle, too -- not even close to over.
An interesting day for personal golf records.
