My USGA handicap came in a 12.2 today, the lowest since October of 2013.
I spent Tuesday and Wednesday at Bandon Dunes, playing 36 holes each day. I played OK on the first day, recording my best score ever on Pacific Dunes (85). On Wednesday I was kind of wiped out from a restless night’s sleep and slow play and didn’t do well at all. However, the scenery was as dramatic as ever, even with mostly overcast skies.
Although Trails is not my favorite Bandon course, it can still be a picturesque setting. This morning’s sunrise was dramatic. Even the starter took a few photos as I prepared to tee off.
I took advantage of an unexpected nice weather day to play a round at Mt. Si. I had an excellent start going par-par-par-birdie for the first four holes. My short game was not very sharp on the back nine and I settled for an 86. Happy enough for this time of year.
With a little break in the weather (some sun and low 50s) I spent an hour or so at Mt. Si practicing then played the back nine; my first Mt. Si outing of 2016. Shot a satisfying 41 with 5 bogeys and 4 pars… and no balls lost in the woods.
In my seven trips to Bandon Dunes I’ve been blessed with such good weather. Although I had mostly overcast yesterday and even a bit of light rain at the very end of the day, I got another gorgeous sunrise this morning.
