As has become the norm these days, we did one of those drive-by birthday parades in the neighborhood up the street.
If you haven’t heard about these things, a group of people meet up the street from the house of the birthday boy or girl, then drive by honking, hooting and hollering with decorated vehicles.
Since a lot of people are still skittish to be around other people, this is what now passes for a birthday party and it makes the kids feel good.
Last Friday in the mid-afternoon heat (mid 90s), we played at what I think is the best public course in St. Louis – Annbriar GC.
Awesome layout. Even better people running the place.
On #17, our co-founder Ryan hit one down the left side of the fairway on top of a hill.
There were three of us who all saw it, but it was one of those annoying balls you just cannot seem to find anywhere.
There was nobody behind us, so I bet we spent every bit of 10 minutes looking for it.
Every golfer has their own warm-up routine when they get to the course.
You may get there an hour early and bang a bucket of balls on the range, you may stretch for 5-10 minutes before you head to #1, or you may be the guy screeching into the parking lot who takes a few swings on the tee box and off you go (the “Trunk Slammer”).
