Played my first match today at Wicked Stick. I was cold and windy and wet. Driving range was closed so I did not get a chance to warm and loosen my muscles up. Us old people need that. Well it was not my best game but was able to pull out a win. I tried not to play as bad as my competitor. It seemed mostly a game of survival and try to make the least amount of mistakes. I have trying out the new I20 by ping and I do have to say I like the graphite project X shafts they have. Right I am trying to figure out a way to tell the wife I need them. I hope she does not read this. Well if anyone has a suggestion on how to tell the wife I need them please let me know. Tomorrow I will be playing Indian Wells. I really enjoy playing that course and I hope it is generous to me. I will let you guys know how played.

Well Monday I played the match play qualifier at River Oaks and shot 77. So I felt good about Tuesday and playing Arrowhead. Well the first nine holes of Arrowhead I owned with 3 over. But it bit me back on the next nine and shot 8 over and a total score of 83. Well I am not finish with that course and I will beat it soon. I might have to make a sacrifice to the golf gods. I hope that works. Well will let you know how the match play tournament goes, right now I am the number one seed.
Well had a great day on the golf course Tuesday. Played at Wicked Stick golf course and shot 77. It fell good to keep my mind off the game and have been hitting the driving range to work on my swing. Working hard in the gym on getting power and balance, which have been a big problem for me. My short game got some work and it showed on the course that day. I shot 3 over on the first 9 and I was 1 over going into the last hole thinking just 1 birdie and I could finish even par for nine holes. Just one more step to shooting even par for 18 holes. Guess what I got greedy and wound up putting the ball into the water. Made bogey on the hole and shot 2 over on the back nine. Cardio work out I am doing is showing some results in that I am not that tired after playing 18 holes. Next week I play is in the match play qualifier and then open play on Tuesday. We will see how tired I am after all that. I might do some cardio this weekend. Well will keep updating my progress on the road to shooting even par for 18 holes.
