For decades, I have been golfing pretty terribly. When I’m playing really well, I usually shoot in the low 40’s for a 9 hole round. But I have never cracked the 40 mark – until yesterday.
Going into the last hole, I was only one over par. If I got a par on the ninth, I would have finished with a 37, a score which I could play another 20 years and not match. But, of course, I choked and put my drive in the water and double bogeyed the hole for the 39. I finished with an 81 for the 18 hole round.
The moment was captured by my buddy Tom, who witnessed it all:
So now, after almost hitting a home run, I’m running out of things to achieve. Sharing a bubble bath with Katherine Heigl is up next.

Does it count if you shoot it in capris?

It’s really a shame you choked coming in. Without putting it in the drink, you could’ve had a 79. Where were you playing?
BTW, please keep us informed on your progress on the Katherine Heigl bubble bath.
