Fore!

Well I took a day off work yesterday and decided to go golfing.  Not long ago I realized I haven’t played Whitnall Park in years.  So rather than go to a nearby course I trecked out that way to play.  I was looking forward to it, as I’ve played Whitnall countless times and it’s almost always been a nice course.  Not today.  The greens were brown and the tee boxes had little to no grass on several holes.  It didn’t help that the greens were coated in fertilizer.  Putting was nearly impossible.  Weird thing was, if you chipped from close up the ball would roll clear across the green.  When putting, the greens were incredibly slow and required a lot of muscle to move the ball.  Anyway, I played pretty poorly on the front 9.  I’m pretty disappointed with myself for not getting out to play much this year.  I got a lot better on the back 9, but not great.  I’ve had a lot of trouble hitting my irons in the last year, not sure why.  For some reason I kept trying to get the ball up in the air and would make a divot behind the ball, and the shot would go nowhere.  That or I’d try to overhit and barely get the club into the ground.  I’ve been working on it, and made good strides hitting into the ground in front of the ball and had some very pretty iron shots.  My drives were pretty good, all 250-275 yards and most of them very straight.  Short game killed me, couldn’t chip from inside 20 yards and the putting, as I mentioned, was not happening.  Hopefully I’ll be able to get out and play a lot more before it gets too cold.
