I made a boo boo

I have been practicing and playing in 65-80 degree weather.

I just got to the range and it’s 39 degrees and I am so ******* cold. What a weenie…LOL.

I’ll be fine, thought you guys would think this is funny. I am so bundled up I feel like the Michelin Man.

Edited:LOL, after I hit a few sand wedges, I went yo dunk it in the water bucket to clean it and had to break the ice layer on top. I am actually having fun.

Edit #2: really struggling with the putter. 3 putted #2, missed a 5 footer for birdie on #3, then on #4, misjudged the speed Ina 10 footer and ran it by and missed the come backer. Then proceeded to hit it OB off #5, just like I did Tuesday.

On a funny note, I am 45 minutes from home playing like a chop, a guy came all the way from Canada to be 9 over though 5…and he has pulled out the Carmelo Villegas spider on the greens. Does it just like him.

I will be good as soon as I stop being a mental case.

Edit #3: Oops. Well, I need some more time at the putting green.
Green. Meltdown. After the OB on 5, I hit it in two and had a 20 foot par putt. 4 putts later and 3 putts on the next two holes has me thinking I wont be handing out putting advice for a while.

In all seriousness, these greens are sloped and fast and I can’t get setup and “hitting” it way too hard.

Edit #4: Alert the media, I made an 8 footer for birdie. I am reminded when you play more golf, you make adjustments quicker. I had to shorten my stroke. Otherwise my two choices are decel and too hard.

Edit #5: Good news, bad news. Parred 9 and birdied 10. Got a pic from the baby sitter and my 21 month old girl clunked her head and needs to go see the doctor to make sure she is OK. I don’t think it’s serious because the bruise came out of her forehead, but I need to get her checked out.

This wouldn’t look so bad if I didn’t have such a history of frustrated walks off the course.

Better luck next week. Aside from the one snap hook OB, I hit it decent and the putter showed signs of life after I adjusted.

Thanks for the support. I’ll be better next week.

    Not surprised. It snowed in Seattle I hear. Go to the cafeteria get coffee and donuts and tell war stories.

    “I will be good as soon as I stop being a mental case.”

    Assuming that your mechanics are not an issue, that can happen whenever you want. Confused mechanics = mental case. Trust me on this.

      Exactly woody. That is what made me mental. I am coming out of it, just not yet.

      Calvin, read edit #5 above. Had a small emergency at home and wasn’t going to make it, so I left after birding 2 of my last 3
