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.

Okay, I did a little fact checking and looked at some blog posts from prior memorial days. I have not improved at all over these last years. My score yesterday was exactly the same as my score two years ago. I'm reclassifying myself from "poor" back to "WTF". Denise

LOL - well, you aren't worse so isn't that better?

What a cute golf bag - love it!

Is that hole on the fringe, and not the green?
