It is a glorious day for golfers who frequent Osprey Links because all 18 holes are open! This spring has been tough both due to the weather and COVID-19, so being able to play all 18 holes is going to very refreshing. The last time I loop the entire track at Osprey Links was back on 29 September 2019 and let me tell you I miss my ole stomping grounds. Fortunately, we are playing today, but we will have to bundle up because it is going to be cold and wet!
I reason I am excited about the expanding number of holes is because 18 holes fits perfectly into my game. I have been playing 9 holes up until now and I found myself wanting after playing. Now, that the entire course is ready for play, I can see my game improving even more!
With the opening of all the holes, I will also start capturing my stats with earnest. As the same as last year, I will capture the following with one new addition:
- Fairways hit – if missed, the record left or right
- GIR – greens in regulation
- Putts – number of putts per green
- Distance of first putt – this is a new stat. It will help me determine how effective is my chipping.
Now that I can play and entire round in one outing, I expect great things from my game. This is always one of the milestones of my year and it happens at different times each year; well 2020 is in full swing and I for one am excited to get going.
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
