Off to Colorado

We began our week-long Colorado adventure this morning; leaving a dreary SeaTac. It was quite a surprise when we stepped out of the Denver terminal into temperature in the mid 70s.

Golf Handicap Index down to 11.5

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.

Flicker

This little fellow perched himself on a branch of the snag where so many birds hang out. But he had an added bonus. I had the sprinkler running and every 30 seconds or so he got a little shower… which he seemed to enjoy.flicker_1010882

Mt. Si Morning

With the summer heat finally dissipating, it was a cool and gorgeous morning. Here’s a shot from the 5th fairway at the Mt. Si Golf Course.

Second Eagle in Ten Days

Geez! Golf is a weird game. I played 1,320 rounds of golf and recorded exactly one eagle. I got my second one on August 24. Today I scored by third, and second in ten days. This time at the 14th hole at Mt. Si, the one with the elevated green so I didn’t get to see the ball go into the hole. In fact, we looked around the green for about five minutes until I decided to look there. ┬áSo I had one eagle in my first 23,000 or so holes and now two in the last 72.
