Just like Jack Nickelass
FORE!!! This mornings run was replaced by a nice round of golf at Charter Oaks country club right down the road from my house in Hudson. I am amazed they allow riff raff golfers like myself on a course like that. A beautiful coarse like CO is so far removed from the cow pastures and rock piles I usually play that it took some getting used to. I did not crack 100 which was my goal. Out in 49 and back in 53 from the gold tees. Tiger Woods is not staying up nights worrying about me getting a tour card. My highlight shot was a chip in from about 35 feet which took about 30 seconds to fly the rough, trickle down the fringe onto the green into the edge of the cup to save par. Just the way I wrote it up. The hightlight drive was adam's off the tree, onto the cartpath for three hops just to roll inot the short rough as the guy closest to the pin. The invitation came via Stulio thru is wiffy/in-law connection to get us onto such a nice patch of grass. I was very excited that we played colleged rules in which you have to walk, carry your clubs, and keep your own score. I lost two balls, one in the drink on the par 3 7th and one in the crud on a par 5 4th, which yielded the unfortunate and dreaded snowman 8. I just try to remember what one of my old playing partners once told me "Nobody is good at golf. But everybody is capable of a few good golf shots." Which why people keep coming back. Sunday I have another Tee time at Pittsfield Country Club and I hope to hit straight and crack 100 this time.
For a run Christy Mae and I did Memorial forrest through to Hop Brook back through ARWR South back to white pond. About 8 miles in 57:43. Only a single today because golf was tiring in the heat today. I think I am getting used to the heat because it was Africa Hot again today but I just sort of shrugged if off.
That's all I got.
