A few years back, I shot a 59 in a golf tournament on the new course I joined for 2022. It was a great round and I never missed a shot that I can remember. Not all my shots were perfect, but I did not shoot any duds. It was amazing how quickly the score dropped with two eagles on the card. The score was not really all that surprising when I one putted 11 of 18 holes and never recorded a bogey or higher. It was a magical round and I hope to grain some of that magic this year as golf season is just around the corner.
As the warm weather continues to plow its way forward in my area, I often reminisce about some of the great rounds I played. This journey down memory lane helps pass the time as I anxiously wait to see the grass pop up on my front yard. It is an exciting time of year and one I always enjoy.
Yesterday, my memory of rounds gone by zeroed in on a game I played at the Mattawa Golf and Ski Resort. What I remember the most was how well I hit the ball off the tee and more importantly my approach shots. It was the one round where I hit 17 greens in regulation and one chip in for eagle on a par 5. I said it earlier, it was a magical round.
Playing a low round of golf is something that I always aspire too. When it happens, I pop that wonderful time into my memory bank; just like yesterday. As I go through all the details of the round in my mind, I realize that I left out a vital piece of information. I was playing in a four man scramble and my playing partners played fantastic. 😉
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
