Funniest/Most Embarassing Golf Moment:

Two summers ago, I had a very good round at my home course, Pine Grove. The next day, I went to the post office and collected my 2014 goody bag. I was excited to get another sleeve of Virgin Flying Cub golf balls (as well as the tees, the shirt, and the Avis water bottle), and tweeted about using one in my quest for a(nother) hole in one. Then I noticed via Twitter that I was selected as ROW player of the month! The email announcement asked a question about form during August. I thought that some of it was consistency off the tee. I'd already planned to play another round that day. So off I went. First hole, pulled my drive left, into some woods, lost Virgin Srixon.... Second hole, par 3 -- one putt par. Third hole, pulled my drawn drive left, into a wooded area, 2nd lost Virgin ball. Only one left -- decided to use it on only the par 3's. Fourth hole, used a new yellow Titleist -- into the woods to the left, another lost ball. At that point, I'm only using the balls in the bag.... The other 5 holes on the front 9 -- four pars and one bogey, including one 45 foot right-bending putt for a par on the 600 yard par 5. Go figure. Second 9 only marginally better. It is a funny game! I do have a couple of Virgin Flying Club Srixons left, and it's a new season!
