My Golf Game With the Mayor and Company Went Better Than Expected
Anyone who listens to the Ethan and Lou show knows my feelings on golf, I'm not a big fan. I could not, however, pass up an opportunity to play in this foursome.
I don't even remember whose idea it was, but I was asked to play this past Friday. The foursome was Danbury Mayor, Mark Boughton, Down the Hatch owner, Scott Parente, Bob Keller, one of our account executives, and myself.
Both Mark and Bob are golfers. Scott never golfed a day in his life, and I have not played in over ten years. To say the least, this would be interesting.
Mark and Bob, it turns out, are both very good. Scott was way better than anyone thought he would be, and I did OK. We had to play a team scramble game so we did not slow down the people behind us. It was Bob and I versus Scott and Mark. After a full 18 holes (a long day) we tied. All that for a tie?
Highlights of the day included but were not limited to:
- A lot of swearing by Scott
- Me swinging and missing a ball and then falling
- Mark stealing my ball
- The naked lady tee I got as a gift.
We played at Richter Park Golf Course, it was my first time there and it's beautiful.
The best quote of the day came from Scott who said:
My biggest fear is that I am going to like this s--t!
I felt the same way. I think we both did like it, but here is the problem -- it was a beautiful day. I don't want to play, even when it's dank and cold out, and these golfers do that.
I don't like the game enough to squeeze in nine holes on a cloudy 40 degree day. See you in ten years, golf.
P.S. I'm a big hitter but no surprise there.
