Just read a study that said the average couple shares an intimate moment around 90 times a year.  It started me thinking that it's going to be a helluva busy December.
Is Mrs. Pelz excited or already calling the paramedics?

Probably means an extended stay from her battleaxe sweetheart of a mother.

I am just excited to be posting on this topic for a second time after a year filled with no progress.  A couple of weeks ago I finally posted even walking off 18.  Last Friday a few too many bogeys, but 5 birdies allowed a 74 and it could have went a couple lower very easily and a good putting round would have made the sixties realistic.
I really have to credit getting away from club HOing and getting back to some plain old irons that I know what to expect from with a decent swing.  My driving has been a little worse than I expect from that part of my game and half wedges are pretty poor.  On the other hand, full iron shots have been as good from 200yards in as I can ever remember and I will turn 60 this month.  
Golf season is over but if I can keep a club in my hand at least once a week or so this winter, I think I have a chance to get my HC where I had hoped to have it at the end of this season!  Time to forget equipment and work on golf for a change.  If my sig does not show a 5HC this time next year, then I will be disappointed...again :-).

Ending the season feeling far more positive. A course of lessons has improved my iron play and now hitting more greens, and closer to the hole. Winter will be time for short-game and fairway wood practice.

In July I reached a par 5 in 2 on one of the most difficult courses in NJ by hitting a 3-wood to pin high 15 feet from 295 with a forced carry over water of 279.  Covered the water easily.  Easy 2-putt for birdie.  My shot of the season and one of the best 3-wood shots I've ever hit during a round.

Worked over night last night.  slept to 2pm.  had some food and was like I should go practice.  Range was closed so was like ok lets play 9.  Started 2-3-2....eagle, birdie, birdie.  holed out from 85 yards for eagle on 1....   finished the 9 at -1 which was very good, but definitely felt the nerves standing on the tee on #4 at -4, lol.   Golf is a funny game like that.  Went out with a headache and not my normal sleep pattern and boom best start of my life.
