A Windy Solo Day

Had my 3 times a year dental cleaning at 1:00 pm, knowing darn full right I'd sprint for a late lunch and then BOLT to the course! Saw a GOLF NOW green fee at 3:04 for $16, and thought sweet deal! So when my dentist makes his cursory visit to scrape on my teeth so he can post a "visit" on the Insurance Invoice he asks his standard question he's asked me three times a year for at least the last ten years.... "So..... Anything new going on?" Nope, I respond, same ole, same ole. (Not true, but you know how those interactions go. I wolf down the chicken sandwich and get to the course just in time. No ones there.... My man Hector scans my card and knows when I load up my bag that I will tell him a famous player and he has to match the players number with the cart key. "Tom Brady", he knows that's an easy one and throws me key #12. No Range Balls, no nothing. Burn rubber to the first tee and off I go. A sweet birdie on 1, routine pars on 2 and 3 lead me to the par 3,4th hole. It's playing about as far as it can, tees back, pins all the way back left. Wind blowing very steady, straight down wind. Have to carry a bunker and don't a want to hit it over. It's 169 pin. So I grab 7. It's really prob a 160 yard shot with the wind. So anyways I just NUT it! It's just one of those shots that u just pure! It's going right at it and going to carry the bunker with ease. It lands, skips just a tad right, and trickles into the hole!!!! POOF!!! Disappears! It's just a rush!! No one saw it.... But me and the big guy above. Bummer it wasn't a shared experience, but haven't we all spent many hours on a course alone, as well as with Pals? One with a pal, and 21 years later one alone. What a treat!
