Regions Day Two,
Well how is it all floating? Day two is done and over and I’m here to tell you that even though the score was higher, there were a lot of good old love, shots and no damn putts!!!
I was fortunate to play with Lietzke & Jacobsen and they are just good people to play with. Bruce happen to mention that he peaks at my blogs and wondered if I was gonna open my mouth again today. At the time I said I was kinda pissed and didn’t want to get myself fined again.
It was then that the big guy intervened with a classic wowsy moment. After I beat the 13th hole into a coma with a birdie from the trees, I had the honors on the par3 14 – 179 yards to the pin and a nice front pin over water. I calmly decided to power a 6, where I hit this fan shank into the water. When I arrived to survey the situation I was told it was swimming with the orcas. I was kinda screwed and trying to figure out where to drop it when I noticed that I saw the ball down in the moss filled pit was potentially playable. It was then I tried to figure out how to climb my one legged body down there. It was a 5 foot rock ledge climb where I held on to rocks, women and wine. Once I had successfully gotten to the bottom, I had to walk back up to the ball – the 10 yd. journey on moss, rock, water and little creatures was filled with numerous slips but not once did I go down. I then decided that I was there and was gonna see if I could get the ball that was completely submerged out and up over this 5 foot ledge to the pin which was a mere 60 feet away. With one quick slap I got the ball out and up and on the green to about 20 feet. Awesome!! My caddy, Mitch, then pulled my butt up and out. He of course showing his extreme athleticism and fell down. After I stopped laughing, I went over and simply knocked it in!!!! A par called ‘classic’. It was a memory hole!!
I look forward to trying not to finish last and to doing battle again tomorrow. We are making great progress and I’m so psyched. This battle with golf is keeping me going. It is giving me a reason to fight. People were just so nice. I’m thrilled that I can give someone a smile, it makes me feel like gold. Oh, the pain today was lower than yesterday, so I can only hope it keeps going in that direction. I can’t begin to tell you how much it hurts.’’
