With today's round at Lincoln we complete the first annual EssEff Bad Golfer Invitational. At least from my perspective, it was an unqualified success. I played four great courses in four days (Lincoln, Sharp, Harding & Stanford). Enjoyed the rounds with new and old golfing buddies (Brad, Zach, Mike, Mike, Richard, Geno, & Will). Brad deserves special mention for immediately signing up to play all four rounds. I met my usual goal of breaking 100 at two of the four courses - Stanford and Sharp. Missed it at Harding, and the Lincoln score was accidentally lost (see below). More importantly, with four full rounds in 2015, I am maintaining a pace to meet my 2015 Golfing Resolution of playing more golf this year than the President of the United States. At this point, I expect we are tied.
Unfortunately, I had to leave as soon as we finished the last round at Lincoln, so did not have an opportunity enjoy a beer with Brad and Will and to post the traditional 19th Hole wrap-up and final scores for today's round. To make up for that oversight, I was going to post the scorecard here, but due to a series of unfortunate circumstances the scores for today's round are virtually unreadable. The scorecard had coffee spilled on it, then I accidentally applied the "Impressionist" filter to the photographic image I took of it in my phone, then a rabid dog ate the scorecard.
All I recall is that with my 47 on the front, it would have required a complete collapse on the last three holes for me miss breaking 100, but since the scorecard is lost, I can't be sure.
After playing 4 rounds in 4 days, plus driving range and 9 hole practice rounds for the four days before that, I think I now need to spend a few days determining if my marriage can be salvaged. I'm sure she'll get over it eventually.
