[GOLF] Langley Cup Update

Today I was fortunate (or unfortunate) enough to play our new club champion, one hell of a golfer, Mike in the continuing saga of our club match play championship. I've always got along quite well with Mike, and he's one hell of a golfer so it was bound to be a good outing.

Today has been rainy and we had some early thunderstorms but it had cleared up this afternoon. The course was slightly wet, though the greens were still rolling nicely. Since a group of fossils were teeing off on #1 we decided to cart our way over to #2 and just skip the formality of playing hole by hole.

He's a scratch player so I was getting 4 strokes. I'll point out any special happenings.

Scores were as follows:
Hole Toast Mike
#2 5 4 (1 up)
#3 5 4 (2 up)
#4 3 3 (2 up)
#5 5(-1) 5 (1 up)
#6 6(-1) 5 (1 up)
#7 4 3 (2 up) - I three putted
#8 5 6 (1 up)
#9 4 3 (2 up)
#10 5 6 (1 up)
#11 4 4 (1 up)
#12 4 3 (2 up)
#13 x OB (1 up) - he hit it OB and gave up since I had a stroke here
#14 3 4 (even) - i made a sandie
#15 6 5 (1 up) - I hit my 3rd in the bunker from 175 and couldnt make my putt
#16 5 5 (1 up)
#17 2 2 (1 up) - I drained a BOMB from around 35 feet, he only had 6 to make his and did no trouble
#18 X X - I hit the trees on my drive left, second shot was towards the right rough and did not find it. Conceded the hole.

That's it! Lost the match 2 & 1. Oh well, i hit the ball OK, but not sharp, and made a few putts and missed a few putts. Was just OK. Guess my round was something around 77 if you factor in the holes with X's. He would have been around 76 if i count correctly. Not his best, not my best. I can't complain much I tried and didnt let the small stuff hurt me too much.

So there it is. Out of the Langley this year. Would have been nice.

"Help me if you can I'm feeling down" - I also think I must be lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him on the golf course yesterday. Now this is strange because usually I see him in the supermarket.

Honest really, last time I saw him there he was right in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new lcd tv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a lcd tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger.

Then I'm gonna go home, put ma dancin' suit on, munch me some uppers and freak out to that maaaaaaaaad surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on ma lcd tv .

How cool is that boy?

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)
