Joyce and Richard both had 35s and Jim shot a 38.

The fairways and the greens are in good shape, the canal that runs through the middle of the course claimed a couple  of balls during the days play.

Who showes up to golf

who showes up to golf

It seems, in golf that each golfer has two persona’s, one that is a good golfer and the other is

the evil twin.

On any given day, we do not know which person will show up when we go golfing. Todays golf at Cottonwood

George Coulson, Sid Bina, Don Reisberg and Richard Lampi, teed off # 1.

George and Sid hit to the left side if the green, Richard to the right. Don hit the green and was left with a 15 footer
which he drained for a Birdie, a great way to start the game.

On # 2 Don’s Evil twin showed up and for the next two holes, he hung around resulting in a 5 and a 6. Then he was gone and Don played

good golf for the rest of the round, adding another Birdie on #7, for a 31

George matched Don’s Birdie with one of his own on #7, with Sid and Richard with pars on that hole.

Sid shot steady golf all day and finished with a 33. Richard stayed out of the water for a change and shot a 32.

George’s evil twin kept on comming back to visit him which resulted in a score of 37.

Judy Bess was out in front of us and Arthur Barnett played with her from hole # 2.

As we were finishing our round Howard and Dianne Stewart were starting thier round, hope they had a good round.
