ROUND 2 IN THE BOOKS

After torrential downpours yesterday, today was a near perfect day.  The sun was shining and only a slight threat of rain and/or thunderstorms.  We had played yesterday at  Tanglewood Golf and at Stonebrook today.  

Today's format was a round robin 2 person scramble.   It was a lot of fun and very competitive.  The pairings for the first 6 holes was Paul/Dave vs. Mike/Wendy.  Dave/Paul shot a 28 and Mike/Wendy shot a 31.  The next 6 was Dave/Wendy (29) vs. Paul/Mike (30) and we finished with Mike/Dave (30) vs. Paul/Wendy (31).  The final score for the day was Dave (87), Paul (89),, Mike (91) and Wendy (91).   The two day total now stands at Dave (167), Paul (168), Mike (171) and Wendy (173).  Tomorrow we will play as singles.  The money play will be called Bing, Bang, Bong.  You get one point for the first on the green, one point for the closest to the pin, and one point for first in.  Your score will be calculated as a stroke play as individuals.  It's kind of indicative how close our skills are and how much more the scores stay with the team concept.  It's been a lot of fun so far;  some good stories and quite a bit of laughter....some with each other and some at each other...I look forward to tomorrow.

There are some extremely beautiful homes on this course but many of them have these screened in pools because of the amount of mosquito's and other bugs in the area...

And for a side note....It's interesting to be in part of the southern Bible belt.  In the local paper, instead of a Dear Abby column, there is an advise column by Billy Graham.

I've got a friend that lived in Florida, not in the pan handle, more towards the southern part, and they had a built-in pool with the screened in part. I couldn't stand the mosquitos!! Looks really pretty and green though, we're getting kind of brown here.....
