Nice to see the tradition continuing for 2017 Frank.

 

You had me worried there that Santa wouldn't get you a golfing calendar for this year.

 

3 pages and I'm all caught up again .... so I look forward to tomorrow's words of wisdom. :)

- Tommy Bolt

 

Many years ago, I was playing with our Club's well-loved pro, and he had occasion to hurl a miscreant sand iron after another duffed pitch. My puzzled look was met with the response 'You'll note that I placed in the direction of the next tee.'

 

At that point one of the greens staff arrived in a small truck loaded with sand to fill up the tee side bin, and ran over said well positioned iron.

 

'Well that worked a treat!' said I......'And, let that be a lesson to you' said he laughing.

 

I never learned........
