Men are so loving and
patient. It actually brings a tear to my eye. For all the golfers out there and
their patient loving wives...
A man and his wife walked into a dentist's office. The man said to the dentist, "Doctor, I'm in one hell of a big hurry! I have two buddies sitting out in my car waiting for us to go play golf. So forget about the aesthetic and just pull the tooth and be done with it, I don't have time to wait for the anesthetic to work!"
The dentist thought to himself, "My goodness, this sure is a very brave man, asking me to pull his tooth without using anything to kill the pain." So the dentist asked him, "Which tooth is it, sir?"
The man turned to his wife and said, "Open your mouth, Honey, and show the dentist."
Stories (all true)
Below will be some golf stories and/or events going on in my world of golf.
Here is the link to a golf web site that is great for avid PGA fans. it has unbelievable content.
In these links you will find my last game played and any other games worth mentioning. The stats in each score card belong to the guy with the lowest score of the round (hopefully me). When only my name appears on a score card, it is because I don't know the people in my foursome enough to ask How many putts?
I use Intelligolf software on (version 6.50) on my Sony Clié PDA and hot sync all games to my pc. Unfortunately, Intelligolf has gotten greedy now that's it a big company. Unless you upgrade (at a cost), their database of golf courses is no longer accessible to me. I don't need their upgrade because I don't plan to use GPS technology to tell how far I am from the pin. GPS is only accurate to 5 yards in the best of cases. Imagine being 5 yards off on every measurement on a golf course. Your GPS would soon be in the water with the balls it has made you hit there.
Another simple product and concept corrupted by money.

The Season is
coming to an end
My Game is South
July 1 - A new low score for the year (78), That's with a double bogey on a par 3 (4 shots from 15 feet). Atlantide greens are true and receptive but the yardage markers are all wrong, so it's hard to make some approach shots. Certainly not worth the $65 weekend fee. Our alacarte price $32.
June 21 - Came in second in the United Irish Societies benefit Golf at Bellevue on a fairly windy day. Winning score 78, my score 79.It's going to be a busy week for me with 4 rounds of golf in 5 days:
June 18 - Won my company's Vegas on June 17 with a -6 beating two teams at -5 a La Bete in Gray Rocks
June 11 - The New Paul is here to stay (hopefully). I finally broke 80. 9 gir's again. Now I gotta to work on the 85 to 115 yard shot.
June 5 - The New Paul is now playing golf. With an 80 from the blue tees at le Diable, my game has turned back around. Even with pathetic putting, I had 9 GIR's which is high for me and I missed some short putts. With 9 fairways (of 13), it helps to stay out of the waste bunkers. I am also driving about 40 yards further than I have been in the last 15 games. I am back playing decent golf. Breaking 80 is my next goal for the year.
June 2 - My Game Has Gone South. I am not posting any more games until I break 85. I have played 8 times this year and my best game is 85 and I have had two 92's. I had two 92's all of last year which was my two worst scores. Today, I may have found something I was doing wrong. We'll see on the weekend. If this continues, I might take up photography as my new hobby.

Dear Golf Signature member, It is with great sorrow that I must advise you that because of insurmountable financial difficulties, Golf Signature will be shutting down operations on July 15, 2005 at 12:59 PM.
The office and Internet site will be closed and all games scheduled after this date will be cancelled.
Associate clubs have been advised and they should honour your tee times but you will be charged full price at the course as the Golf Signature agreements with the clubs have been cancelled.
We regret having to take this decision but we have tried everything to save your golf season with Golf Signature but ongoing discussions with potential buyers did not resolve the financial issues.
Regretably, Steve Janveau Brennan President
