Weekday Golf

Wednesday Will and I played golf at the hilly Steel Canyon Golf Course in Sandy Springs, just south of the river. We had never played there before, but had a great time. We teed off shortly after 5:30 and finished at 8:45. I played well for me, considering that I hadn't played since October. Even broke 100, though the course is a short par 61. As usual, I lost more balls than I found, though the found balls were nicer than the ones I lost.

We played the front nine alone, well ahead of the group of five behind us. On hole eleven we joined two twenty-something guys for the final eight holes. By then I was worn out, though my play wasn't completely terrible. I only hit one ball in the water. Will played pretty good, carding only five double-bogeys.

After leaving work Tuesday at three to head to the Braves game, the new boss inquired as to my whereabouts. I apologized for sneaking out without informing him, but it was no big deal. When I poked my head in his office when I was leaving Wednesday at four, he smiled and said "Leaving early again?" Then he said that I was the least of his worries, which was encouraging. Wednesday we were able to have one of our better chats. In the future I'll keep him better informed.
