Shooting The Best Golf Score Ever!

After thousands of rounds of golf, I thought that there was very little left to accomplish given my skill level. Well, last Thursday during in our scramble Men’s Night competition I reached a new milestone. The four man scramble was played at the Mattawa Golf and Ski Resort, my home course. When we first started playing, Mike, Barry, Charlie and I had hopes of playing well because of the favourable scoring conditions. And score well we did. Starting at the first hole, we played golf at a higher level than normal; Ii was very exciting and a great deal of fun. I am grateful I was able to participate is that magical round.

Shooting 59 In A Golf Tournament

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.

Even Following Your Golf Plan Well May Not Lead to Success

The Senior Scramble at Osprey Links was a fantastic event. Played yesterday, Rick and I teamed up again in an effort to play well enough to be in the top prizes.

This is an event that we look forward to playing because of the comradery, fantastic food, and the chance of winning. This year Rick and I were confident that this was our year because we developed a great plan; the only thing left was to execute this plan.

Playing Golf In Your Favourite Tournament

The season of golf tournaments is closely at hand. Regardless of which course you play, the deluge of tournaments is about to hit your local area. They take up tee times and sometimes directly affect your ability to play at your favourite time. Well, if you are new to the golf, it is important to understand that this is all part of the golf business. Many courses/clubs make their profits during these events and therefore try to balance the number of events with the demand for member tee times. I have made my peace with this dance and actually embrace the tournaments by participating in them as much as possible. For the most part, I find them fun, entertaining, and challenging all at the same time. However, I do have a favourite and intentionally seek this format out above all others.
