Mini Post: I lost … Twice –
By Wayne Halm –
On November 13th 2016 I played the Puakea Golf Course with my golf group. I don’t normally post about group play because I don’t want to distract anyone with pictures … but this was different.
My wife, Sally, walked along with me to “coach” me and to get in her FitBit steps.
I didn’t need much coaching for 15 holes … more pars than bogies, and that is good for me. Okay, there was one hardheaded double on the card. I just had to try a low percentage shot (and yes, the “coach” told me all about how dumb that was). But overall I was feeling good.
Then I lost it … completely lost it – the rhythm, the feel, the concentration … everything. I tripled the last three holes and lost the game – and Sally’s money (she pockets whatever I win) .
The game was one loss … what was the other loss?

They laughed the entire back nine … usually at me. But that was okay, we were having FUN. Laughter and smiles – It was the way golf should be.
I have a 2016 goal of playing golf with 100 people that I haven’t met. I’ve played with Milton and Wendell before, but this was the first time I’ve met William – he is number 42. Want to be in that number?
Come play golf with me.
