Reader the Golfer… not quite up to par!

Hey, everybody! Reader here.

I’m still busy doing the ag show thing for the rest of the week, but over the weekend, I was out at Langenburg Motors, and while I was there, I couldn’t resist trying out the mini-putt game they had set up for kids (of all ages).

As you can see, my putting game is (pardon the pun) not up to par!

I like to get out onto the course when I get a chance, and play some actual golf, but my skills are just as rough there, too!

Here I am on the fairway at my home course, Riverview Golf Course, in Outlook Regional Park.

When I hit off the tee, either I hit the ball relatively straight, or I slice it off to the right.

When it comes to my short game I either lay the ball up too short, or power it over the green.

And when I putt, I either put too much on it and overshoot the hole, or I try and take a little off of it, and leave it way too short.

There’s no happy medium in my golf game.

But, I guess that’s the point. You never master the game, and every round is different.

Whether I play well or not, it’s always fun to get out on the course and play a round!

My greatest accomplishment on the links? Back in September of 2014, I was golfing in Outlook with my brothers Ward and Barrett, when I managed to score a par 4 on Hole #3, before scoring a birdie on the Par-3 Hole 4.

I’d post the video, but there is some distinctly good-natured R-rated language from my brothers who provide the commentary! Haha!

My favourite days on the course are when I get out with my brothers and play a round.

There’s no pressure (other than what I put on myself), and we just enjoy the day, along with a cold beverage or two!

It’s been a couple of years since I played an actual round, though.

Maybe I need to find the nearest mini golf course and play a round!

Leave it to me to find the rough while playing mini golf at Ruckers in Saskatoon!

At least I’ve never run into any gopher trouble on the course!
