TWO DAYS PRIOR ON THE SAME COURSE 18TH HOLE I WAS ON WAY TO SHOOTING MY BEST SCORE EVER. HIT BALL STRAIGHT DOWN MIDDLE OF FAIRWAY, WATER LEFT,TREES RIGHT AND ALL FOUR OF US SAW IT LAND. DROVE UP AND NO BALL,HAD TO TAKE A DROP AND HIT NEXT BALL 20 YARDS AND NEXT 30YARDS AND BLEW GAME. FAST FORWARD TO 12TH HOLE, TEED OFF WITH DRIVER (OLD GEEZER AND NOT A LONG BALL HITTER}ABOUT 165 YARDS DOWN THE MIDDLE. RODE TO BALL WITH PAL AND WE AGAIN COULDNT FIND BALL. AFTER MUCH SWEARING ABOUT THE GOLF GODS HATING ME I WALKED ACROSS THE GREEN TO SEE IF I BOUNCED LONG, GLANCED AT THE HOLE AND REALIZED THE GOLF GODS LIKED ME AFTERALL.
