This is pretty much every golf round I've played in the last several years.

Shot 79 Yesterday. 3 birdies and 3 train wrecks.
A few years ago my friends and I played at a shitty course in a small town about an hour from my house. It was 9-holes that you played through twice and one section had some train tracks and an old train car parked on it to the far right of the tee. One of my friends managed to slice (is that the right word for when your tee shot veers way off to the right?) his shot right into that train car both times we played that hole.
The :) means it's all ok.

Held a golf club for the first time the other day. My family reunion has a golf tournament component, where the golf is less important than the drinking. I usually go out just to drive a cart and hang around. This year though, one of my aunts took me out to the driving range and tried to teach me to hit.

It didn't go well enough that I actually played the course, but I did all the putting for my father on the back nine.

Wow. Even I can shoot an 84 on an off day.

Mind you, I don't usually do as well on the back nine.

Played a course today that was so hard and dry that I hit a 395 yard drive. I carried it maybe 230 yards, it rolled 165 yards! 550 yard par 5, I hit driver - 8 iron. I guess I figured out why they were only charging $21.
What was really sad was that it was actually a pretty good layout. If it was in good condition it would be a really nice place to play.

The Ryder Cup is my favorite sporting event to watch, I'm on vacation this week and will be able to watch every minute of it.

Ian Poulter played his ass off. I would have liked to have seen Poulter play Tiger in singles the way they both played it would have been a hell of a match.
I never liked Hunter Mahan anyway, now I have a legitimate reason.

It was a very good competition indeed. Especially the last round was nerve-wrecking. Did enjoy Europe's Sunday dominance a bit more, but Monday was way more exciting.
