Round Played: — As A Single —
By Wayne Halm –
Not often — but it does happen –
My round on June 10th 2015 got sidetracked when the guy I was scheduled with didn’t show up. I hung around the course for about an hour looking for a game, but only foursomes went out.
I made use of the waiting time. Went to the range and hit a few drives, it was ‘Mat Day” and I will not hit irons off the mats. Chipped a while, this was good because I started way too strong. And I rolled a lot of 6 foot putts, but that got depressing – so I went out as a single.
Playing as a single never lasts long for me. I am a ‘social golfer’ and a fun round requires a ball, some clubs, a course – and PEOPLE. For three holes I watched the foursome in front laugh and have a good time. Good for them! But even at par, par, bogie, I was not having fun. On the fourth fairway I picked up my ball and quit.
No, this day did not work out for me – it happens. But I’ve been asked to play with some folks tomorrow and things are looking up.
Come play golf with me.
