      I'm taking a golf vacation this coming Monday and playing in a beer-oriented scramble at Maryland National.

      I was going out today, but my girlfriend's (and golfing partner) allergies are killing her. I guess another day.

      Wow! Sugarloaf? I'd love to play that course one day! Shanks are never good for score but I'm sure your 111 was still better than being at work! [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Its kind of a hard course if you shank it. Its not that bad to play.....and it was better than work!

      I'm playing a scramble in the next few weeks. I should probably go to a driving range so I don't embarrass myself. Scrambles always take me out of my comfort zone but it should still be fun.
      Two kids, a wife and work make it very difficult to play as much as I did as a college student. I do miss it once in a while though. I'm hoping one of my kids enjoys golf enough to go out to play with me.
      I took my 2 year old to a putting green and had an old guy glaring at me the entire time. Even though the green was huge, my daughter was fairly quite, and there was nobody else there. Plus it is a public course. If you want to be an ornery jackass, buy a membership at a private club.

      I played a couple scramble tournaments last year. Since winter is 6 months here I'm able to get out about 12-15 times a season.
      I absolutely love playing. I'm a bogey golfer at best, but I just love playing the game. Thankfully I will be moving to a climate where its possible to play all year long [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      While we are on the topic of dirves. I think my longest has been ~360 but I realized that its better to have a 260 yard drive in the middle of the fairway as opposed to trying to smash the ball every time and hoping it goes straight Most of the time mine don't

      So what arw the thoughts on Tiger missing the cut this weekend? Yes I aslo watch golf.
      I think its just rust and the fact that his life is upside down right now.

      Good luck, Bill.
      I need to get to a driving range a few times before I go out.

      Shot 79 today at Daytona Beach CC. Warm up for tomorrow. Playing TPC Sawgrass. Friends folks live on the sister course, they get a handful of guest passes. I am super excited!

      I golf at least once a week.
      The course we play is as redneck as it gets and I love it.
      Anyways its $18 for 18 with a gas powered cart. We bring our own beer, play barefoot, wearing tanks or a jersey, and bring a boombox for some country or 90's rap. It is the best way to spend the day. Only once has the marshal ever said something and it was like "Put your shirt back on and at least buy one beer from the cart girl"
      Surprisingly, I think the course is better kept than the local muni. There's no sand, but the water features and greens are actually pretty nice. Well worth the 30 minute drive out to country.

      Jeez, Bill, you're playing like me.
      Want to drive up with your father-in-law and maybe another person and play Yale? I never use up all my membership rounds.

      I know the feeling, though I only shot a double digit once in the past year, my score is still terrible.

      "No one knows for sure how many golf balls are lost each year worldwide, though the total in the United States is estimated at 300 million."

      Most of them are mine.
