The 2012 Child’s Play golf tournament is halfway sold out now. I’ve decided this is my year to really get back into the game. I haven’t played seriously in about 15 years. I played high school golf as a young man but I got sick of the competition and gave up the game to focus on my art. I love the game though and in just the last couple of weeks I’ve probably been out four times. I’m not shooting like I was when I was 18 but I’m having a blast and I’m getting better each time I go out.
I’m using an iPhone app called GolfLogix to track my progress this year. So far I’ve played two rounds with it and I’m really impressed. You can see my scorecard from yesterday right here (jesus I can’t believe I just shared that). The app gives you an easy way to track things like fairways hit, GIR, and average putts. It will also give you yardages using your phone’s GPS. I was honestly skeptical about that part but having used it a couple times now I’m sold. I played with a buddy who was using a physical range finder to shoot his yardage. We compared numbers a few times and my phone was always within a yard or two of his reading. Anyway if you’re looking for a good Golf app I highly recommend it.
It’s worth mentioning that the CP tourney is for players of all skill levels. If you shoot in the 100’s or the 80’s we want you to attend. The four person scramble format is a a great way for players of all skill levels to compete together and have a good time. So please check out the tourney website for all the details. We’d love to have you join us for a day of golf for a good cause.
