Poor, But Happy
The rain in Maine can really be a pain.
We had one nice day out of three on this short weekend visit, and I was able to play my first golf game of the season. Before we talk about the game, though, I do believe this is the first good shot on an actual golf course of the felted golf bag I made two years ago:
The course was pretty crowded today, so I had a lot of time to artfully pose this bag. It's a made up as you go kind of pattern, sort of modeled on a yoga bag. I used Lamb's Pride Bulky in a pretty lavender and sage green, both real Maine colors. It holds the three clubs I use most on this par 3 course, plus some balls. It also has an i-cord strap in the back. It's very cute, if I do say so myself.
I had a lot of good shots today, getting on or near the green in two or three straight shots on most holes. Because I was playing by myself, I got some documentation of a few holes. Notice my pink Barbie ball here, on the third hole which is the hole I dislike above all at this course. I got here in two great big thwaking shots, head down and eyes on the ball:
My putting was dismal, though. I think the bifocals had something to do with it, I just could not figure out how to get the ball in the hole. Overall though, I think I've moved my playing skill up from "What Are You Doing Denise?" to maybe "Poor" and that's a great way to start out the new season.
