Hello Friends.

Down in Joe-ja some fine southern gentlemen put on a famous little golf tourney each April.  Thanks to Covid that tourney is coming up this week instead.  Up range here at Dogwood Country Club we have our own little tradition unlike any other.  The PAX, fooled by another milestone on the calendar, had little idea of what was to come, but was warmed up and ready to tee off at 0600.  UpChuck was unable to decipher the theme from the number of reps in the COP.  Harvard, my a$$.  During the 4 Corners, Swirly playing speed golf was crossing the Hogan Bridge while the rest of the PAX had yet to make the turn.   As the PAX teed off on ten, a nasty slice sent the PAX into the deep rough of the amphitheater, luckily the PAX was able to pull a 2012 Bubba and hit a miracle shot to get back out and save par.  Moseying over to 16 for the Drive, Chip, and Putt competition, YHC polled Gomer and Swirly, block or no block?  Obviously block.  Perhaps by design, the PAX was hitting range balls rather than Pro V1s making it difficult to reach the green and set ourselves up for birdie.  YHC is pretty certain the PAX was about 6 over through 3, but we’ll just put down 1-under on the ol’ scorecard.  It was the short game, and the long game that let the PAX down.  Never played golf without a few visits from the cart girls and some col’ beer, but it’s always a pleasure to get out and play, nonetheless.  Thanks to all for the birthday goodwill, may the PAX’s days be filled with Eagles and Birdies.  Until next year…

  1. Happy birthday brother! Excellent themed beat down. A little surprised you didn’t go with disc golf discs. #ideas

  2. Will put in a request with Corporate to budget for a bag of golf discs for next year. My white one has lights for use in the darkness of the gloom, but doesn’t exactly fly.
