Best Round of Golf So Far in 2019

It finally happened! I shot even par at Osprey Links Golf Course. I am excited to see that my game (although streaky) was sharp enough for 18 holes to shoot my lowest round of the year. The funny, I was just playing golf and not worrying about the score at all. The only time I mentioned my score was on the 18th hole when I needed a birdie putt for a 71. However, my round was a bit of a roller coaster!

A Fun Scramble At Pine Grove Golf Course

A few days ago, Blair and I were invited to play in a fun scramble at Pine Grove Golf Course in Sudbury, Ontario. Bruce, my brother in law, extended the invitation to play in the Mine Mill Local 598 Unifor Retirees Tournament which we could not refuse. Bruce also invited Jack to play, thus rounding out our 4-man team. I have to say that it was one of the more enjoyable rounds of golf I have played in some time. I hope Bruce includes us again next year because Blair and I are ready for another shot at Pine Grove.

Have a Terrific Thursday!

I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!

I guess this is true for all learned skills, but more prevalent in golf.

Playing Golf With New Friends

Playing golf with friends is always fun. Playing golf with new friends is something I thoroughly enjoy and yesterday I had a chance to expand my circle of grateful golfers. My wife is from a small town in Ontario and recently reconnected with an old friend, Michele. Little did I know I would be the beneficiary of this re-connection as I was invited to golf with her husband Jacques. He brought his brother Gilles and an old mutual friend Glen who I knew from years ago. We decided to meet at the Mattawa Golf and Ski Resort for a quick round and to take the chance to get to know each other.
