Dressed to Impress
Posted by mojoe4u
Note to self: always have a spare set of clothing on hand. You may drive a Wrangler and the clothing will probably become moldy and foul-smelling after a short length of time, but at least have the option. I also came to a harsh realization after playing on Sunday evening; much to my amazement and utter disbelief, it is not always awe-inspiring to have your rugged chest hair exposed. Why you ask? Because the whole time you’re traipsing around the course looking like some d-bag in a JC Penney advertisement, you’re thinking about that undershirt you could have worn during the wedding and then later be clad in it as your outer garment the following day. Case in point – Captain Awesome is wearing the striped button up with khakis followed by some thick-soled Wellingtons and played two courses in this ensemble. At least I left the jacket in the vehicle. I love it.
Prior to playing this day (third time I’ve played), the only discs in my possession were 2 drivers. Wish I could have played them but unfortunately they were at home with my spare clothing.
Course #1 after the wedding was at Civitan Park (John LeMaster DGC) in Trussville including Tim, Jason, JT, Stephen and me. This was the third time for me to play and first time to play this course. Due to different departure times, only 12 of these holes were conquered. I really enjoyed this course because it didn’t seem heavily populated thus making it more convenient by not having anyone needing to play through. Seriously, I think there were maybe a dozen people there at most including ourselves (especially on a nice afternoon – weird). This course boasted a wide assortment of flora that included a robust amount of poison oak; be careful picking up your disc and try to hold that deuce until you get back to civilization. So what did I learn about this course you may ask? Out of the holes we did play, #2 was a heart/leg breaker – if you don’t fall on the rocks or fling a disc in the privet/poison oak medley then you must be a straight up champ. It is also a good idea to watch out for people chillin’ in or around the shores of the Cahaba on #6 thru #11. We may have been witnesses to a baptism. With my aim it is only a matter of time until someone inadvertently places themselves into my line of fire. Overall this course was fun as hell and would really like play it again at a later date. Much appreciation to Stephen and Jason – I can now play a game without having a driver as the only disc – Thanks guys!
Course #2 after the wedding was at George Ward Park in Birmingham with Stephen, Jeremiah and me. This was my second time to play this course and fourth time to play. We not only played 18 but also the ‘extra’ 6 between #14 & #15. I had a 76 at the end of the 18 not counting A thru F. Sweet action. This course is great to play but can get rather crowded – at least there are some patient folks in this ‘neck of the woods’ that are able to put up with my driving shenanigans and not send a disc in the direction of my face like I am mistakenly doing to players on other holes.
Greg Carter Memorial DGC next – nice. . . . . .I am also up to 5 discs – score. . . .
I had a great time catching up with everyone this weekend and hope we can do it all again soon – Vegas anyone?
