YES I WAS "THAT GUY"
AT OAKWOOD GOLF COURSE
You know, you don't want to be "that guy" on the golf course.
So on Monday, around 11:45am....if you were at Oakwood Golf Course in Franklin, I was "that guy," and for that I apologize.
You see, I had an 8:30am tee time...and we all know what happened. It rained like Noah's Ark, so my brother-in-law Adam, his buddy Tyler and my wife's grandfather Bill....they all bailed.
And that left me to take my twins to a birthday party. For 2 and 3 year-olds. So you're accurate to think that after an hour of that, I was done.
When my wife showed up, me being a guy...I asked my wife if I could get 9 in between the storms. You know, attempt to become the priest in Caddyshack. So Amy said go ahead....and away I went. Jim at Oakwood gave me the blessing to tee off on the back 9, going Eric Carmen (all by myself for the musically unhip.) The first other creature I saw was a deer crossing the 14th fairway, and it was the 16th hole before I came into any human contact.
I didn't push that duo, but after the turn on the front 9, I came up on another slow moving duo. I told them, I don't want to be that guy...but they let me play through.
The best part? I played 18 holes in 3 hours and 15 minutes...I didn't have a lightning bolt or a tornado hit me as I got my round in between storms...and I shot a 95. Hey, don't laugh...for me breaking 100 is a major accomplishment! So I'll be "that guy" from now on....the guy golfing solo...so watch out for me sneaking up on you!
