Bad Day at Lincoln Park


Actually, it was a very good day. A little cool - in the 50's - but sunshine and crystal clear. One of those days when you feel like you can see for miles. Quite literally in this case. If you biggify the pic on the 5th green at the top of the post, you can see the Farallons in the distance - some 30 miles away.  I'm playing with Bob and Rick. The starter added Matias to fill out the foursome.  He said he was game to be documented for my live blogging golf fetish - so here we go.


The day was good, my golf was bad. By the time we got to the 5th tee I already had 3 snowmen on my scorecard with more to come. Rick did what he could to let me close the gap on the back, but to no avail. He beat me this round, which always makes me wonder whether it is time to give up the game.


I spent time distracting myself from the horror of my scorecard with underused features on the Samsung, including "Burst Mode".  I was hoping it would allow me to catch the ball in the air off the tee, and possibly create an animated gif or two.


That exceeded my technology bandwidth, so there was no "live blogging" this round. Instead, we are settling for this EOD post with pics from the round. Deal with it.

Matias had a 76.

In retrospect, none of the other scores matter.
