Back Home

Filed under: Golf — Bunker @ 5:30 pm

It was a pretty good week, but I’m worn out. Just drove home today after eating a huge meal with my son and his lovely bride last night–body still recovering.

I was in sixth place Thursday morning having taken first place for the day Wednesday. But I couldn’t hit a shot all day. We finished five under yesterday, and that won’t be enough to hold on to my position from Wednesday.

But my C-player is an old Army colonel I teamed with one day last year. He’s 77 and still can launch a long drive on occasion. He outdrove both me and our A-player twice. Last year he played as a D-player after having some back problems, but still drove one 4-par green on Hal Sutton’s course. He also chipped in one of our few birdies. It was good to see and talk with him again, just two old helicopter guys from two generations.

That’s the best part of this tournament. Some guys are out there trying to win money. Many of us just want to see old friends and comrades, and have a few days of golf together.
