Round Played: with Dean Nelson –
By Wayne Halm –
Sometimes I just have to laugh at my game … it’s just the best option.
On September 22nd 2016 I played the Kiahuna Golf Club with Dean Nelson. A great day, a great golf course, and a great golfing buddy – oh yeah, this looked to be FUN.
The great day, course, and buddy carried the day – it was fun. They more than made up for my poor play.

On this day I was suffering from … well, let’s call it “Restless Neck Syndrome”. I rarely saw the club strike the ball, and when I don’t see that I rarely like the rest of what I see.
Fortunately, Restless Neck Syndrome isn’t contagious. Dean didn’t catch it, he nailed the ball all day long.
I just had to laugh at my poor play … and I laughed a lot. My troubles covered the entire course.
Restless Neck Syndrome is not believed to be fatal. I have known golfers who died “with” it, but none who died “of” it. Even so, one feature of the course gave me a chill.
Golf Coaches must have a thousand treatments for Restless Neck Syndrome, but the prescription I got filled was “drinks in the clubhouse”. It does lessen the pain … but does it work? We will find out in a few days.
I have a 2016 goal of playing golf with 100 people I haven’t met. Dean was number 38. Want to be in that number?
Come play golf with me.
