Tim's Great Golf Game
This past Monday I played golf with John Meredith, a good friend of mine. We played at a new golf course, Buck Point, on the shores of Brookville Lake in southeast Indiana.
This course was not easy by any means and I am not a great golfer. But I am getting better, especially since I took two lessons last year. To further complicate the day, my lovely wife Kathy had given me a new driver for my birthday just three weeks ago and this was my first time using it.
I shot a 96! That is only the second time ever I have broken 100. I had 5 pars and on hole number 12, I chipped the par in from about 15 feet out. One would think a miracle had happened.
Can you tell I am still excited 5 days later? It appears I have turned a corner and I really feel as if I can play the game. I have no aspirations of being a sratch golfer, but I'll bet I can get to the low 80's with some effort.
You can bet I'm going to give it a shot! If you want to play golf with me, just give me a shout.
