I had a month off to regroup from the drubbing I took at Iron Hill/South Hills. Things in my own life kept me from over-practicing this time, my Mom passed away the week before my next scheduled event. She was my biggest supporter and if I remember correctly gave me the money to register for the Boulder Bash. She loved to see me out competing and having fun so when event day came I went with a heavy heart but I was looking forward to a day outside with some friends. Continue reading
The Ice bowls are behind us and the weather turned really nice, really fast. Just in time for my first two tournaments of the year!

I hit my second career Ace (hole-in-one) at the Ice Bowl on Saturday! Coyote Hills in Carlisle PA, #7. In the few years I’ve been playing I’ve only hit two, both in the last four months and both at a tournament. Its fun to have a course full of players around, when everybody hears that extra-loud CHING! followed by some shouting its pretty obvious what just happened. Gets you pumped up. Anyway I paid my $2 to be in the Ace Pot before the tournament so I won some cash and since it was for charity the pot got split 50/50 so I actually raised a bit more money for the Project Share donation that way. Doing well by doing good indeed.
