I was going to title this post "End of Golf Season," but I realize it's really not. We'll certainly keep playing here in Michigan as long as weather allows and the courses stay open. Plans include some travel to South Carolina in October and November, so that will extend the season still further.
Although I'm in a bit of a slump at the moment, I have been playing some of my best golf ever. The trip to Lost Lake Woods Club last month saw me make birdie on two separate days (same par-3 hole) and my best score there ever, a 108. I also managed to shoot a 102 at one of the Maple Lane courses (I forget which). So, Ken tells me that breaking 100 is "inevitable." It just may not happen this year. Stay tuned.
The irony of it all is that, now, when I score a rather average 113, as I did this weekend, I feel that I've been playing badly. What a difference just a few strokes makes to the ego. Then Ken reminds me that I was shooting around 140 at the end of last season. I have to thank golf pro Jim Dahline for the big improvement. Just a 6-week course of golf lessons through the city of Royal Oak rec department last winter. Best $86 I ever spent on my golf game. Which works out to about $2.87 per stroke to lower my score. Such a deal!
