It looks like we will pass the average November rainfall figure today after an above-average rainy October. And look at those stats for last February-March-April!
With the ever so damp weather we’ve been having, I expected Michel Cote and I would end up canceling our round of golf today. But when I got up, there was just a little drizzle so we decided to tee off and if it rained we’d just bail out to Starbuck’s for lattes. Instead, the weather was passable and I shot an effortless 79. Seven bogeys, eleven pars. Not even a sniff at a penalty stroke and no heroic chips ins of super long putts. It’s my fifth round under 80 this year (after none in 2015-2016).
Gee! After last winter the last thing I wanted to see was the earliest Seattle snowfall in 42 years.
We were able to make a quick visit to the Garden of the Gods park before dinner.
What a slog it’s been. Since getting down to 11.6 in September of 2014, my handicap had pretty much trended upward, hitting 16.6 in September of last year and was still at 16.4 in mid May. Maybe the persistent lessons are actually helping. Due to the never-ending winter of 2016-2017, I ended of playing way fewer rounds that I had planned this year. I’m going to be curious to see what spring 2018 brings.
