Playing Winning Golf

It is interesting that our golf swing can be spot on and then in the blink of an eye be gone for an hour.

Overall, last nights game was a good way to finish playing Men’s Night at Osprey Links.

However, with a few modifications to the tournament format, The Grateful Golfers, (Blair, Rick, Fernando, and myself) put in a team to support the local Humane Society. We tee it up tomorrow and I am just working out the strategy now.
