Sharon, Jack and I played eighteen holes at Ancil Hoffman late Saturday afternoon. Teeing off at 4 pm, it took us four hours to play the round. We had nobody behind us on the front nine. When we got to the back nine, the course was empty. There was no one in front of us or behind us.
Due to the pandemic, they are giving everyone their own cart. I kind of enjoyed it.
I ended up shooting a 124. I was striking the ball off the tee pretty well, but my short game is a dumpster fire. When Sharon and I took a few lessons a couple of years ago, the instructor had me working on a different approach to chipping. At this point, I am completely adrift with my short game; I am not sure what to do. Combined with not putting very well, my score ballooned.
As we were returning the golf carts, they asked us where we came from. Apparently, there has been a lot of people coming to play from the bay area and Reno.
Although Jack hasn't played golf at all recently, he started to settle in a little on the back nine. Sharon continues to hit the ball very well off the tee. All in all, it was an enjoyable afternoon.
