    I was first loser at the New Mexico women's amateur this year. Played poorly in the 2nd and 3rd rounds to achieve such greatness.

    Unfortunately no next year for me. We have retired to TX. Those kids are tough to beat. It can also be somewhat comic realizing I am considerably older than their mothers. image/shok.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':shok:' />

    Skimming :



    "A form of white-collar crime, skimming is slang for taking cash "off the top" of the daily receipts of a business (or from any cash transaction involving a third interested party) and officially reporting a lower total. The formal legal term is defalcation."

    Poured myself out of bed this morning.

    Put on my my new golfing shoe.

    Went to the course to see what these new clubs could do.

    They were all watching me at the first tee.

    Striped one out there as far as one could see.

    Memory's getting a little foggy, was it par , better or worse.

    Golf can be either a dream or a curse.

    At 56 (however I eat right and exercise and have the body of a 55 3/4 year old) this year I ;

    Hit two drives 307, longest I can ever remember.

    Won a long drive in a tournament by 25 yards.

    Few hot starts, 4 under after 5 holes twice, shot 68 first time 88 second, hurt my back second time on #7 limped in.



    Played 8 tournaments, first in 20 years.



    Learned I STINK UNDER PRESSURE. 78 average, from the whites.

    On Friday, the first round of silly season, I shot a 79 at my home course. This is the first time this season that I was able to put a front and back 9 together. My scores are usually in the 87 to 92 range. Both my front (38) and back (41) scores top my PB's of 41 and 43.
