A Good Walk Spoiled
Anyone who has ever played the game of golf knows exactly what Mark Twain was talking about when he declared that "Golf is a good walk spoiled". It really can be a frustrating, humbling, and down right painful game at times.
Today however, was not one of those times.
First of all, it was a gorgeous Southern California Monday and I was outside all day enjoying the sun. Second, I got to play for free today...and there is nothing bad about that. Third, we were playing at the La Jolla Country Club which is as exclusive as it is beautiful. Last of all, I got paired with a great group of guys.
In fact our group was 5-under after 6 holes and already practicing what our acceptance speech would sound like at the banquet after our round. Unfortunately, we never got to deliver that speech. 5-under after 6 holes in a scramble is good, 5-under after 18 holes in said scramble...not so much.
Hey, what can I say...at least the beer was cold.
