August 30, a Friday, at approximately 8:00pm, on the hallowed grounds of Broadview Golf Course in the quaint village of Pataskala, golf history was made. Yes, on the same grounds as where some of the greats have walked like Nicklaus (Jim not Jack), Woods (Tim not Tiger), Palmer (Andy not Arnold) and Watson (Tony not Tom), yours truly, dragging his wife around, won the mixed couples, alternate shot league title. Returning from a 3 year break from the game, the Wilson duo stormed through the summer league, overcoming long odds and on this final evening, even winning closest to the pin on #7 (me), long drive on #9 (her) and a skin (low score on a hole) to pocket $42 and a collection of free 18 hole passes. This is why I suck at cycling. It is due to the long hours of practice until my hands are bloody, rather than sitting on a bike seat. There was some cycling, to report later today.
