The second day of Murphys Laws of Golf involves being humbled by the game itself.
2:24: Your absolute best round of golf will likely be followed almost immediately by your worse possible round of golf ever. The probability of the latter increases with the number of people you tell about the former, especially if they came to watch you play or you have decided to play for money. $$$
Speaking of money... my hubby played in a small 9 hole tournament last week at our local course. He was excited to have played since we have not the opportunity for a while with the bad weather we have had conflicting with our free time. I do not feel good enough to participate in a tournament yet, so I told him to go ahead without me this time. As the team played best hole, he was excited that on the final hole he was inches from the flag on a 140 foot drive and was the selected shot to end with a birdie and his team won the mini-tournament. He went into claim the prize he won for the last shot. It was a great shade umbrella worth a good $50 and left out of there with a fist full of money, his share for winning the tournament. Needless to say, the smile remained embedded for a couple days. I guess Murphy will be around the next time around to make him humble once more. It is the good days that keep us coming back for more punishment, that is for sure. FORE!!!
