Shooting Our Lowest Scramble Score Ever!

Yesterday was the best round of golf my chums and I have ever shot as a team. Our team is now known as “Team 59”. Yup, we shot 12 under at Osprey Links’ par 71, 6100 yard diverse front and back nines. I have played there for many years and yesterday’s round was one where Rick, Blair, Fernando and I were firing on all cylinders. We all contributed and except for the last hole, we had multiple balls to choose from for every shot. It was a round of golf that we have been waiting to appear for a very long time.

Having Fun In Our Three Person Scramble

Yesterday, I played in a three person scramble with my friends Rick and Fernando. We have played in events before and we felt confident that we could compete with the other teams. As it turned out, we did not play as well as we had hoped, but that is okay because the company was fantastic and the course (Osprey Links) was in fantastic shape. We finished at minus 2 and left many birdies on the course; is that not always the way!

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.
