Round Played: with Stan Fisher and Dennis & Darlene McPhee –

Is Poor Putting Contagious?
On September 13th 2015 I played the Kauai Lagoons Golf Course with Stan Fisher from Newport Beach, California and Dennis & Darlene McPhee from Laguna Niguel, California. My wife, Sally, took pictures for us and we had a great day.

Before the round I rolled enough balls on the practice green to know that it was going to be a long day on the greens. I just had no “feel”. On the first hole it was just me, but by the second we were all missing easy putts.
Was it my fault? Is poor putting contagious? Leave a comment and tell me what you think.
But I am not going to take all of the blame. Our approach shots, and some of the pin placements, did create the opportunity.
Perhaps it was the opening created by the putting, but the par-3 14th hole got into our heads.
The putting showed up on the score card, but not on our faces. We were having too much fun to let putts affect our smiles for long.
So what do you do when the putts just won’t drop? You keep trying that’s what!
Four happy laughing golfers walked off the course this day. And no, they weren’t just laughing at my outfit, we had fun! It was the way golf should be.
Come play golf with me.
