So few posts, so little time. Or something like that. Suffice it to say that it's hard to believe we are already upon the annual golf trip. Late February in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Nothing like it. When it's warm anyway. When it's not, and it hasn't been most of the twenty years we've been going, there's still nothing like it. And with all this global warming, we've got to be in for some good weather.
Anyway, golf is hard enough. Add to the challenge the sea level thing, the February thing, the wind thing, the cold thing, the beer thing, the high slopes thing, the abundant water thing, the narrow holes thing and the OB thing and it gets a lot harder. Or at least is has, at least for me. Practice helps. Sometimes. For some of us. A couple years ago I tried Tommy's no practice approach and won a lot (for our group) of money and earned a nice room. Last year, while basking my successful application of Tommy's approach, I again avoided all range, dome and putting time. This year I'm in the Nemo Suite. So I'm back to the practice. Once a week I hit a small bucket of balls at the dome. And I hit 6-8 foot putts while talking on my bluetooth in my office. This year I'm sure to do better. Right.
The MB12 format is familiar and comfortable. Best balls every day. Closest to the pin on every par three. Good friends. Good location. Good venue. Good courses. Destined to be a winner. Now if I can just muster some good golf...
Stay tuned to the CMGC Blog for revised course and format information. Till then.
