I Broke 60! (In 9 holes, but still!)

December 31, 2012

DSC00007After several days of laying around and doing absolutely as little as possible, I woke up this morning ready to accomplish something.  I did the dishes and then tackled the Christmas tree.  No not literally.  It’s still upright, I just finally took all the ornaments off and put them away.  Just as I was finishing up unstringing the lights (you know, the ones I had to put on it since the prestrung ones died?) Mr. Herren (he has expressed doubts about being called Master Herren) came home and suggested that we go out for something to eat and then play nine holes of golf.

As usual, I was hesitant, but I could tell he must have played badly that morning and needed to figure out his game.  Plus I really needed to get out of the house.  So I got changed.  Mr. Herren gathered up my clubs, and we were off to a local 9 hole course.

Now, I do not play well.  I did finally take lessons, but I don’t play regularly.  When I do play, I just want to whack the ball and move on.  I don’t want to take 20 practice swings, I don’t want to spend 5 minutes lining up the shot.  I just want to hit it and go.  Fortunately for me, Mr. Herren just wants me out there, so he’s never been overly critical of my stance, or my techniques and he doesn’t make me play a real game or keep score.  That keeps the pressure off and helps me enjoy it much more than if I worried about all that.

This time I decided to keep score, just to see where I was in relation to the last time I played (um, about a year ago) when I scored 76 in nine holes.  After a very enjoyable nine holes, with one hole with only a single bogey (single bogey!  That’s awesome for me!) we added up the score.  59!  Not a bad improvement for someone who only plays once a year.  Next year, maybe I’ll score in the 40’s…
