I took my golf game, such as it is, to Raymond Memorial golf course to hook up with Dennis and his co-worker Rich and participate in a scramble event. What a hoot the day was with Dennis and Rich being such great sports, allowing me to pull out every one-liner I had from a near lifetime of playing bad golf. I will spare you all a shot-by-shot analysis of the round but our overall play and score exceeded my expectations, finishing at 5 under. We did not arrive at that score easily as it involved plenty of time looking for lost balls, including this one from a creek. Dennis would have put more balls in the numerous creeks and streams except usually he didn't hit the ball well enough to get it to the creeks and streams.
Rich, an interesting guy with one son being a Navy Seal and the other teaching survival training for the Air Force. These three spend vacations in the deep woods of Montana and when not there or not working at Siemens, Rich farms a few dozen acres on the side. What he does not do is spend a lot of time refining a golf swing but given what he has accomplished, that's understandable.
What I could never figure out is how a guy with a swing that PGA pros would kill to have, couldn't hit the ball better than he does. Here for instance, note the perfect form. Anyway, it was a fun day.
