My Father's Day

... involved a round of golf at the (fairly) prestigious Inniscrone Golf Club. It was as hot as friggin' Hades out there which may have led to my miserable 53 on the front nine -- which included my first-ever 10 on the par-4 fourth hole. My consolation, such that is was, is that the fourth hole is the #1 handicap hole. It has a severely sloping green which will roll your ball right back to you if your chip is just a tad short, or right off the far side if your chip is just a tad long. I had three chips that were of the former variety! Ouch.

However, despite the heat, I rebounded on the back nine, shooting a 43 which included a birdie on the par-3 eleventh hole. After the round, I had to essentially peel my clothes off me, stuck to me with sweat they were. Yuck.

Afterwards, my buddy Roger (who also played, BTW) and I headed back to his place where the wives and daughters were awaiting us with a cookout and Coronas!

So, overall, especially considering my great-for-me back nine, it was a good day. Much better than Phil Mickelson's, I'd surmise!
