Sunday..finally a day of rest..almost!

As can be seen by the food diary below, the Nachos have done some damage. We are having the leftover slab tonight. Tomorrow will resume the diet and training regiment.

Today was a return to Sunday morning golf.

Although things could have gone better, there was hope.

We started on the 10th hole and the round was full of problems right off the bat. My uncharacteristic struggles form the sand traps is getting annoying. Being in the sand traps isn’t any fun either. The biggest disappointment on the front side was the 9th (18th) hole. I hit a decent drive, a decent second shot and then, a third shot that found the green-side bunker but was pin high and only 10 feet from the cup. A six at worst. I picked the wrong time to hit a sand shot as pure as possible and hit it about 50 yards into the water, followed by a bunch of horrid chipping and putting to end with a 9!

The round continued on a downward path on the first hole of the back nine where I hit a tree, hit a good second shot, hit a third shot into a sand trap and clowned around to eek out an 8. Just as I thought about going home, I hit my tee shot on the par three just off the left side of the green, a fairly easy chip and I was looking at a par. Three putts later, it was a five. The following par 4 had a similar outcome.

On the fourth hole, I hit four good shots to get a par! Of course, this was followed by a butchered chip shot and a three-putt for a five on a par three. On the following two holes, more trips to the sand traps resulted in a double bogey and a bogey. When you are an amateur golfer, this is what is known as just grinding out the round.

On the 17th hole, I hit my second shot, predictably, into a sand trap. A “fried-egg” lie no less. Tealas Dad always said this is the easiest sand shot there is. Guess he is right. I hit a nice shot to within two inches from the cup. A “gimme” par and sandie!

The 18th hole started out with a well hit 5 wood to the center of the fairway, another well hit 6 iron onto the green and a 20 foot putt that came up 5 inches short, for another “gimmie” par.

The putting stroke got better as the round went on and if it hadn’t been for a few concentration lapses, I would have scored much better. Finishing with two near birdies at the end of the round is encouraging.

The rest of today will be spent finishing up the Nachos and relaxing by the pool. I have a busy week next week so, a lot of the workouts will be broken up into either early morning or evening. I’ll see which.

Everyone have a great Sunday!!
