Round Played: with Dan Roton, Mike Tafoya, and John Iwema –

By Wayne Halm –

Sunshine, ocean breezes, and a challenging course … I just knew it was going to be a great day! –

On February 22nd 2017 I played the Wailua Golf Course with my buddy Dan Roton.  Mike Tafoya (from Castle Rock, Colorado, USA) and John Iwema (from Bolingbrook, Illinois, USA) joined us.  Guys just out to have a good time … and we did.

My “good time” started a bit later than theirs.  As Mike said about my first hole, “You got a little ‘catawampus’ there”. I hadn’t heard that term in a while.

But the guys were having too much fun … it took a couple of holes, but I just had to join in.

How is this for tee shots on a 220 yard par3? Yeah, we were smiling.

And the “good times” continued.  There is nothing quite like crushing drives in the sunshine to put smiles on golfer’s faces.

 On the back nine Mike’s performance even drew a following of sorts.

At Wailua putting can be a challenge for me … I frequently leave them short.

 The challenge occasionally affects Dan also … and he putts well.

Yeah, we were a bunch of happy golfers.  Well, maybe Mike was a little happier … he played the back nine at par!  And at Wailua, that is no small feat.

This was another fun day on a golf course … lots of laughs.  Great weather, great course, and great company – this was the way golf should be.

I have a 2017 goal of playing golf with 100 people I haven’t met.  Again I can’t count Dan, but John and Mike are numbers 4 and 5.  Want to be in that number …

Come play golf with me.

  1. Had a great time playing with you Wayne and Dan
    The course and greens were in great shape.
    So nice to be by that ocean breeze.

    • Aloha Josh,
      “Walking the last 200 yards of a fairway with a putter in your hand is a great feeling” – some pro golfer said that … and the four of us will attest it to be very true.
      A Hui Hou,
      Wayne
