Played 27 holes today. Wasn't planning to, but one of my regular golf buddies who was on the practice green, saw me on the 14th and joined me there. He was just warming up by the 18th and wanted to play more, so I joined him for another nine. Shot 40/43/40. 43 on the back kind of pissed me off. I played better than that.

I'm sore right now, but with the cold weather forecast to return over the weekend, and expected to stay cold for another extended spell, figured I better take what I could get. It was high 60s today and kinda balmy. Ball didn't seem to travel as far as it did yesterday in dry 50s. There was 10-15 mph wind though. I was clubbing up all day.

I shot a decent 82 (par 72) on the Big Island of Hawaii, in perfect weather: i think 82 was the temp too, or around there, very sunny and clear and a bit of wind but nothing terrible.

This was after waking up to the sound of the emergency alert on my phone calling for imminent nuclear doom. So I kissed my wife and my okole (ie my rear-end) goodbye! It didn't seem real, but there it was written in black and white on the phone (with the warning sounds too). It took me 10-15 minutes to find out it was a false alarm, but it took the state 38 minutes to send another emergency alert message cancelling the first one!

After that a couple of 3-putts didn't seem like a big deal.

That must have seemed surreal at the time. I was watching CNN as they covered the mishap all day. Felt terrible for those on the Island. Had to be the longest 38 minutes ever. Bet you really enjoyed your round today.

The most fearsome words in that alert: THIS IS NOT A DRILL. The whole thing was written in all caps too...

Lots of people really panicked, especially on Oahu. It was eerily over here. And I did enjoy my round quite a lot, thank you, even having a thought for you guys in the frozen East afterwards.

Just looking at a screencap of the alert made my neck-hairs stand up. I am a little surprised that no heart attacks were caused.

Got out Saturday with temps in the mid 50's. It was a pretty good round with one of the worst blowup holes i've had in years. On the front 9, i was +1 through 7 then carded a 9 on a very straightforward par 5 (hooked tee ball into a river, very bad idea to try a 3 wood from the drop and topped it across the fairway, ok hybrid, wedge short to a greenside bunker, and 3 putts to top it off). But, i got it back together after that by parring 9 and shooting a 39 on the back for a 80; 78 ESC.

Nice bounceback. Pretty strong to shoot 80 with a quadruple bogey. Reminds me of that dude 'Player' back on oobgolf. Seems like every round he was going to shoot par until he had one double digit blow up hole.

It's been a while for me to shoot something this bad, but i still have a hard time getting through 18 without at least a double.

Ahhh, Player. Those were the days. He was as full of shit as they come, but his bullshit alone was entertaining at times. He fooled none of us, but thought he was fooling us all. That was the entertaining part.
