I woke up early Friday morning to the sound of drizzle outside. It was still pouring outside as I gathered my things to head to the course. I arrive around 7:15am not sure if they would even let me get started. It had rained all day Thursday and overnight and I was concerned the course might be a little under water.
I was surprised when I was told I could get started and that the I could drive the cart anywhere on the course. I wasn’t looking forward to playing in the rain, but the weather turned out to be perfect. After a light rain for the first 9 holes, it dried up and was extremely comfortable all day.
Believe it or not, but I somewhat enjoyed playing all day. I was worried that my back might start hurting from all the swinging, but it held up quite fine. What did hurt was my arms, especially my forearms. I simply played through the pain. After a while I felt like a machine; mentally I was set to play as long as needed.
I finally decided to call it quits after 83 holes. I took some video and we will try to make a short video to recap the day. Is was a good experience and I raised over $1900 for our church. I was glad to do my part to help us buy this church property. Thanks to everyone who pledged their support. It means a lot to me and for our church.
