I finally had a chance to get away earlier this week and get in a round of golf with my brother-in-law, and who says there is not a golf guru looking over you?
You should have seen the long putt I made on the 18th green! Never mind the score on the other 17 holes. Despite the low-90 temperatures, we had a great time walking the course in just under 3 hours, 35 minutes.
Yes, Virginia, you can have a sub-four-hour round without a cart! And I do practice what I preach and kept thoroughly hydrated throughout the round, and I did use sunscreen.
We need a little taking care of business with plenty of results to bring you from the past week or so:
