Golf Overload

Last week I was asked by the owner of my company in the Falls if i want to take Friday afternoon off to play a golf tournament. Hmm, golf v. work... tough one.

Then, last week, a family friend called me up and said "hey what are you doing Saturday?" I said nothing, of course. He said "you want to play a golf tournament?". This one I agreed to as well.

Turns out they were at the same place. So yeah, I played Beechwood back to back days, and let me tell you, it's in tough condition. They've really let the course slip quite a bit and its sad. Greens are pockmarked and ugly, tees have huge scabs of dead grass, fairways have bare spots, it's not what it once was. And I get to play it twice! Wee.

Anyways, outside of the course conditions, I had a super time both days hacking the ball around. I hit a few bad shots and a few good ones, winning no prize for my efforts -- and my efforts didn't deserve one either really. I just wanted to go have a good time and play golf for fun. Thanks to Jim and Marcel for a fun weekend. Won a sidebet for "the drinks afterwards" from Marcel -- he's competitive as hell and I was seriously concerned until I birdied the 17th to put it away. I didn't stick around to drink too much after the round though -- had to drive home.

Sunday I played my home club, first receiving shit from Gary for not showing up Saturday though I don't remember ever saying I was playing or was on the tee sheet. Meh, can't please em all. Then I shot a very mediocre 78 winning $5 in a sidebet and losing $10 in skins when my only birdie got sliced and diced. This weekend was the best weather we've had consistantly all year, and I used it all up on golf courses... no regrets for when the winter comes by. 7 rounds in 10 days is a lot of golf.

On the poker issue, that inevitable downswing came as I mentioned it would. I think I lost $350 last week total mostly at 100NL. Couple bad plays by me, couple good plays by me, this puts me just short ($20) of even this month overall which is no big deal. I haven't got to play as much as I would like honestly. I bloody love poker.

Note to Harry and Matty... Daisy said he wants to play a home poker game if we ever have one :P

If daisy wants to play we can, but he'll probably quit after the first few hands anyways.
