Round Played: with Joe and Linda Deacon –
By Wayne Halm –
Oh yes – there was a birdie in our group – the guy in the yellow shirt made it.
On October 15th 2014 I played the Kauai Lagoons course with Joe and Linda Deacon from Meadow Vista, California.
I could not find it on the calender, but Oct 15th must be the “Official Putter Holiday”. Because none of our putters worked that day.
However, we were not about to let lazy putters get in the way of our primary objective – having FUN. Linda hesitated but consented to pose in front of the Octopus plant.
As expected by the time we got down to the ocean the putter problems just didn’t matter – the views took over.
The 14th tee is always emotional – taking a deep breath, saying good-bye to your golf ball, and all that.
But when it works, it works – and the smiles quickly return.
Players get used to the ocean side play – but not to the views. The views are always a distraction.
The signature 16th hole can offer some challenges – I got caught up in them – but Linda and Joe simply rose to the occasion.
This was a good day on the course – Joe posted a good score – Linda made some incredible shots – and me? Well, I got plenty of exercise, fresh air, and sunshine. Three happy golfers walked off the 18th green. Golf the way it should be.
Come play golf with me.
