Big day for me! As you know I play a lot of golf and today is my first day back on the links! It was also a special golf day because we were playing at an exclusively private course called Victoria National which is near Evansville Indiana. We purchased the opportunity at a charitable auction. Like Augusta National, you can only belong to Victoria National if you are invited to join. I can't imagine what the initiation fee and monthly dues would be!
This was a big day for me because my head has always typically sweated a lot during heavy activity and I was a bit concerned. Naturally I wore a hat and the forecast was for a high of 78. Fortunately, it was overcast most of the day and I didn't sweat a lot. My head felt fine all day. However, I was amazed at how often I tend to take my hat off during a round of golf. I know this now because each time I reached for my hat I stopped and chose not to remove it....if possible. Because my donor area is still tender, taking the hat on and off causes just a bit of discomfort but not that much. Certainly not enough to keep me from golfing!
Victoria National was the most beautiful and finest course I have ever played! Shot 41 on the front nine which included 4 three-putts! The greens were spectacular but difficult to read and putt. Came back to earth on the back nine and shot 51 !!!! I'm a 12 handicapper so the front nine was super for me! I actually hit 8 of the 9 greens in regulation. You golfers know what I'm talking about!
