Well folks, it's officially that time of year. The time of year when one goes out and plays some golf. The weather has been absolutely perfect in my area. Warm, but not too warm, and the occasional gentle breeze. I went out last night for my first round of 9 of the season. Lets just say I scored about what Tiger scores but in half the number of holes played:o. I plan on getting out again on Friday for a full 18, and hopefully again Sunday morning.

Anyone else get out yet this year?

NFL 1958 Championship Greatest NFL Game Ever Played Giants Colts 50th Anniversary

Well, it's not golf, but I watched this game!

(At least it's usually a lot warmer out on the links than that day!)

hehe, thanks tex. Actually I used the movie title for the name of the thread, but I agree that was one great game that propelled the NFL into the spotlight.

I was out for a round on Friday. Shot my usual lousy score. I'm hoping to get out once a week, as usual, starting next week. I need to brush up on my cussing, it's the only thing I'm really good at.

Hi Lou, Once a week is plenty often enough. It's nice to just have a day to yourself where you can get out of the house. I always walk when I play, so it is a bit of exercise as well, though I will admit I need to do more than walk. It is easy for me to go out two-three times a week.

So far we have established that only two members here play, or no one will admit they play

My Dad started me on the golf course when I was two. I golfed regularly for the next 20 years. When I was in college, my Dad told me that I had the worst swing he had ever seen. It is not that bad now but I only get out a few times a year and my 82 year old Dad still beats me. It's something I have learned to accept and to enjoy, since we probably do not have too many rounds left together.

I live about two miles from Bay Hill. My elder son golfs there with friends who are members. His friends are both 15. One has a 1 handicap and the other a 4 handicap, golfing at Bay Hill. Another young man we know is graduating from high school this week and has accepted an appointment to West Point, where he will be on the golf team. He also golf's at Bay Hill and is better than a scratch golfer.

Some were born to golf and the rest of us were born to be bad golfers!

Ahh...golf. What I lack in skills, I make up for in expense of equipment. We have a nice little 9 holer right across the street from us, and I went out last Sunday for my first time this year, along with my dad. I got my dad involved in golf years ago when I got a Wilson 3 wood from a neighbor and was wacking balls into the woods. Now, my dad is a pretty damned good golfer. I am not. He steps to the tee with his Taylor Made (a gift from me when I had money to burn) and after a shimmy shimmy ya'll gives it about a 270 yard ride down the middle. I step in with my Big Bertha with a head the size of a manhole, my Nike golf balls, and smack that bastard 4000 yards into the woods. The Meuse-Argonne was easier to get out of. So my golf experience is like one of those Master Card commercials. "Woods...1000, irons, 1000, drinks on the course...50....getting beat by your father by 20 strokes....priceless" At leas the doesn't ask me to go too often.

Played last week. Same old story. Bogey golf for the first 4 holes. I'm thinking this could be the round of my life. Then, Whammo!, took a big old 9 on a par 5 and the rout was one.

I've calculated my handicap: it's...my lack of skill.
