Golf Yesterday and Night out in Downtown SD

First I couldn’t help but laugh at SNL’s opening…

The boys got out for some golf yesterday. I don’t know why I volunteer to play this game ‘Wolf’. I usually end up finishing last and the game slows down the pace of play so badly. It seems that we’re always so fixated on order and who’s next and who’s wolf that the entire game takes some of the speed out of the golf round.

The other problem I have is too many pickups. Guys will pickup 6, 8, 9 foot putts. Or even sharp downhill putts from two feet and ask ,”Is that good?” I have no problem to pickup if you’re far out of the hole or it’s slowing down the round but give yourself a fair and justified score. 7 foot putt and you’re going to tell me that more than 50% of the time that you’re going to make it?

Also to make an obvious point – the only person you’re hurting is yourself by not being true to yourself. Those are handicap strokes that you’re losing out on. I just shake my head when I keep the scores myself and I look down and I see 6 “X” ‘s.

Here’s the exact ruling on if you have conceded putts to pick up on a hole. Source here.

Last night we went off to downtown SD to celebrate my friend Terri’s birthday. An excellent time was had. Dinner at Bona Appetito and then off to Craft and Commerce for some drinks.

Today’s fun. We’re going off to Costco to prepare for an annual Christmas party. Food, beer, wine, etc.
