First Time Golfing

Went out golfing with Kjo and Jbi today – my first golf experience.  We went up to the Lomas Santa Fe executive course in Solana Beach, which is a par 3 course, nothing really longer than 140 yards.  I have been to a driving range a few times over the years, but never played a full 18 holes.  Rented a couple of golf carts, loaded up on beer, and headed it.

I managed to scrape together a (mostly) complete set of clubs between what Cam and Adam had, and god damn it was a lot of fun.  I did pretty well for my first time – Kjo has been playing a lot lately and he shot a 87, Jbi managed a 90, and I came in last, but not by much with a 95.  It was a great day for it, cold, cloudy and overcast, but great weather that I preferred over sunny and hot.

Overall, a great way to spend a sunday afternoon – drinking beer with some buddies…and I severely underestimated just how fun playing golf actually is.  There is a lot of strategy and technique to the game, something I realized will take a little more work than just playing Tiger Woods on XBOX!


This is my blog. I started it back in 2006 when I was finishing my undergrad at SDSU, kept going as I started my career and completed my MBA, and what do you know I'm still updating over 10 years later... It contains a little bit of everything about me - I'm an opinionated asshole sometimes, definitely a nerd, a gamer, a husband, a manager for a consulting company, a DJ and a musician, a grease monkey and a motorcycle rider...and a whole bunch of other things that probably are too offensive to mention. This blog has a lot of stuff I find funny, a little I find serious, and tons of information about my various and plentiful hobbies. I hope you find something here that's interesting to you. I'd love to hear from you, so feel free to comment or contact me! Thanks for stopping by!
