While visiting Southern California last weekend, I was fortunate enough to have a game with some old golf buddies in Ventura County. I had played only once in the last four months and infrequently over the last two or three years, but that didn't stop me from raising a few eyebrows at the start.
My index had risen from about eight a few years back to 13 while playing at the golf course across the street, but I don't think the rest of the foursome believed that for a minute after the first three holes.
There's just something about "2's" on a scorecard that keeps you coming back...
Unfortunately, I missed three five foot putts over the last five holes and went from one-under to four-over in the process. A score starting with an "8" would have been good enough for me, but it turned out to be a good deal lower.
If I do happen to get down that way again for another round, they'll probably want me to play as something below a 13 index.
