golf is an easy game….

I’ve been playing golf for more than 30 years. There have been times when I used to play up to twice a week but now, sadly, I hardly play at all. Yesterday I played for only the fourth time since 2007 and, amazingly, equalled my best ever score of 83 on the par 73 course (including nine pars)! I really can’t explain it or quite believe it…. I drove the ball and putted really well right from the start and there were no “flukes” (I even hit a ball into the water once). Great mates Ken+Steve were duly magnanimous in defeat - although I dread to think what handicap they’ll give me next time we play!
As Ken conceded, this was the closest I’d come to shooting my age in golf!

"only the fourth time since 2007" is definitely a cup half empty way of looking at it!! How about, "this is my third game this year! woohoo!"

sorry, you're absolutely right, it WAS the third game of 2009 - which makes my blog an outright lie (ie. it's really 5 games since 2007!).
Woohoo, that means yesterday was my third game of the year!!
