Golf – a most frustrating game!

The golf season has started for some of us. Some play through the winter, but I am a fair-weather golfer.

Augusta - easy really?

This week sees the start of The Masters from Augusta. I don’t watch much sport on TV, but I can make an exception for this one! There have been some great moments- Tiger winning in 1997 by 12 shots to become the youngest winner and Faldo winning in 1996 despite going into the final round 6 shots down the Greg Norman – were tow of the best. But the tournament has the ability to demonstrate some stunning golf shots.

And so back to my golf. I finished last season in the Squash Club Society at a 15 handicap. I played in September before hanging up the shoes for the winter. Then last week I played for the first time. It had been my intention to get on the range to hit a few balls beforehand, but work put paid to that as an idea.

So I turned up at Springwater Golf Course with a few minutes to spare and with zero preparation. I shot 84 and came 4th. And so the handicap tumbled to 11. This seems rather harsh, but the Handicap Committee work in mysterious ways…

What I do know with almost certainty is that next time the score will be low 90′s (where it normally is) and there will have been more golf played! There is no rhyme or reason to the game.

But we still love it!
