  1. Thought this would be a cool story to share. This is my second year on this tour and I play in the D flight. I think my best finish last year was around 4th or so. Last year my knees were shaking on just about every tee box. My mind was filled with doubt and just crazy thoughts about everything you can imagine. This year that has almost went away but I should have known better to even talk about it out loud. Last Saturday we were playing at Stonebridge Meadows in Fayetteville Arkansas. Beautiful course and very well taken care of. I get to the first tee box, par 4 with a wide fairway. W
  2. > @hahanice said: > slight revive, but i actually think golf is less fun than it was when i was worse. I would imagine everyone is chasing a number. I am a 1.2 with an average score of 75 or so, and if I feel at all like i wont be able to be near par I am miserable. sometimes i have to remind myself "hey man 78 is pretty **** good." When I was breaking 90 for the first time and hunting down 80 for the first time it was incredibly fun, but also allowed for some mistakes. To break par I basically have to be perfect which is more stressful. > > I have been playing for about 5 yea

For all I know you may not even keep a handicap. Even if you weren't playing solo you would probably need to post Handicap + Par for any holes not

  5. First let me say Hilton Head is a very nice place and very laid back. My wife and I stayed for 6 days and had a great time. The food was wonderful! First day of the tournament for D flight was held at Dolphin Head Golf Course. Pretty nice course but a little tight with lots of trees and houses. I had heard crazy stories from some of the guys on my tour about getting paired up with some not so fun guys through the years. I was a little nervous about that but soon as I met my playing partners I could tell they were good dudes. Our first hole was a 190 yard par 3. Of course, yours t

  9. > @bazinky said: > The golf gods know when you don't possibly have enough time to complete a round and can be really cruel. I've never broken par (lowest score for 18 is a 73). I had a flight for work scheduled for the late afternoon, but decided to play with some buddies that morning at one of the tougher tracks in the area. I was -3 through 10 when a huge thunderstorm rolled in and I wasn't able to finish the round. I'm still bitter about it. You had a nice round going! Hope you break par soon!
  10. So it gets dark around 6:30 now here in Arkansas. I leave for Hilton Head Thursday to play in the Amateur Golf Week tournament so I've been trying to practice as much as I can.

Man how I wish I could have had more daylight. First hole is a par 5 and I par it. Oh I'm about a

Not sure if you've ever read any of Obee's round recaps but they are a great template and fun read. Awesome I wasn't sure how much was too much but I can assure you that it would be

  13. Thanks Big Red....we are flying in and out of Savannah.
  14. First let me say thanks for all the advice you guys gave me in the other thread. I did a lot of breathing and a lot of self talk. I don't think in my first post that I told you guys this two day tournament was at the country club I'm a member at. We have two courses and one is very difficult for me and the other I usually play pretty decent on. So I felt like I had somewhat of an advantage because I just know my way around so good. We are playing the easier course first. First hole Saturday is a par 5 that's pretty basic. I was in order to tee off third. The guy teeing off first wa
