Morning golf at cottonwood on Jan. 26th and 27th.
The last two days we have had real nice weather, with very little wind for our morning golf at Cottonwood.
We generally go out around 10 am. There are other groups of golfers who belong to other leagues
from some of the R.V parks in the area. They have tee times earlier and are finished by ten in the morning.
Our golf has been steady for the last few days. Don has been the most consistent the last two days with scores of 33 and 34.
Sid had a 34 today despite being wild off of the tee, he was good with chipping and putting.
George shot a 35 yesterday but had bad luck on the greens today, lipping out on 4 holes and ending up with a 40.
The water canal claimed a ball from George and a ball from Sid on hole # 5.
The only highlite for Richard was a birdie on # 2 as he shot a 38 yesterday and a 35 today.
Other golfers from the La Copa play golf later in the day.
Cathy Sanders started her golfing career today under the capable hands of Judy and Keith Bess
Welcome to the world of golf and all of its ups and downs, Cathy.
Only the Hardy golfers were out this morning, six in all. Which made up two teams.
We did not use the Dice as planned, due to the lack of players.
The weather was on the cold side with a nice crisp breeze, just enough to make you wish you had longjohns on.
The Leagues that were sheduled to play before our 10:am time did not even show up.
The two teams both tried to dominate for the low team score and in the end both teams were tied with 31’s.
Every one shot nice solid golf despite the wind and cold, George had the best round of the day with a 34, Sid and Richard were right behind with 35’s, Doug and Joyce shot 38 each and Don finished with a 39.
Richard was the only one who coud manage a 6 after he had to check to see if there was water in the ditch.
A few of the golfers have been trying out softer balls, made by Callaway Supersoft and the Wilson Duo. They are designed for senior golfers. In a few weeks they will be asked rate the balls. Thanks to Arthur for supplying the Callaway balls to test.
who showes up to golf
It seems, in golf that each golfer has two persona’s, one that is a good golfer and the other is
the evil twin.
On any given day, we do not know which person will show up when we go golfing. Todays golf at Cottonwood
George Coulson, Sid Bina, Don Reisberg and Richard Lampi, teed off # 1.
George and Sid hit to the left side if the green, Richard to the right. Don hit the green and was left with a 15 footer
which he drained for a Birdie, a great way to start the game.
On # 2 Don’s Evil twin showed up and for the next two holes, he hung around resulting in a 5 and a 6. Then he was gone and Don played
good golf for the rest of the round, adding another Birdie on #7, for a 31
George matched Don’s Birdie with one of his own on #7, with Sid and Richard with pars on that hole.
Sid shot steady golf all day and finished with a 33. Richard stayed out of the water for a change and shot a 32.
George’s evil twin kept on comming back to visit him which resulted in a score of 37.
Judy Bess was out in front of us and Arthur Barnett played with her from hole # 2.
As we were finishing our round Howard and Dianne Stewart were starting thier round, hope they had a good round.
After the intence competition that the golfers had to endure yesterday, some of the golfers were tired to play today.
It did not seem to bother Sid, Joyce, George and Richard, They were on with the game at 10:am.
Sid chipped in for a Birdie on # 5 and came in with the days best score with a 31.
Richard was just behind with a 32 and George and Joyce shot 39’s.
Arthur was out on the coarse as well as the Ruhlow’s, Nancy and Bill.
Don had to stay home and do chores ( washing the car)
The weather was nice and sunny, good for shorts and short sleeved shirts.
Another nice warm sunny morning on the Cottonwood golf coarse, and the group from LaCopa took full advantage of the weather.
Don, George and Richard were out front with a treesome, Sid, Joyce and Art ( new to the group this year) were the second group off.
They were followed by Bill and Nancy with Howard and Dianne.
Bill and Jerry were also out on the coarse and looks like this group of hardy golfrs are using the coarse to the max.
Just how the other golfers scored is not known but Don shot a 38, george a 39 and Richard shot his best round of the season with a 31.
The only golfers missing were Kieth and Judy, Gary and Doug.
