I mentioned in another thread that I was getting back into golf. When I was cleaning out my golf bag I found a scorecard from my last round and my wife believes its from 2004 or 2005 based on the course and who I played with. I haven't played since then. Yesterday I took my three girls and we all went and played a nearby Par 3 course. I had a blast. I shot a 16 over 43 on 9 holes on a par three... but I was thrilled. I really didn't have any of those shots that make a person want to quit the game. No wild slices or shots that inexplicably go 90 degrees off course, and I counted every stroke. Granted I didn't have to play my full bag. I started out pulling two shots out of bounds off property on the first hole but it got significantly better from there. I took my penalty and re-teed off each time which actually hurt my score. By rule I should have dropped where the ball went out of bounds and taken my penalty and continue from there. Play was extremely slow as my younger two really struggled. Pace hurt my game a bit and I haven't spent any time on the putting green this year, all hitting at the range. I feel like I could easily drop another 5-6 strokes just playing at a better pace and working on my putting. My approach game was actually not bad at all. Too many three putts on small, relatively flat greens. All pace issues. At one point I bogied four holes in a row. Not exactly amazing golf but I'd take a full round of bogies most days. I need to get rid of the sixes and sevens which could turn into eights and nines on a full length course.
