Fog Sucks.

I got out yesterday to play a round and it was foggy as hell.  I "was" o.k. with it, but that stuff was not burning off.  It was foggy for the front nine holes and you couldn't see past 10 be honest it sucked.  I was then thinking of getting smacked right in the head by a golf ball from people behind us, as they for sure were not going to see us in the middle of the fairway.  

You had to literally guess where the green was when you got into striking range.  I have played at this course a dozen times, but when you can't see past 30 feet, it sucks.  I ended up hitting everything really short, on the side of caution, but it just wasn't anywhere as enjoyable.  I'd rather play in a downpour without any rain gear than play in this thicket of fog.  The second half of the round was perfect, but not being able to see the front nine holes wore me out..mentally.

Started walking..

I was in a I replace the tires on my Sun Mountain Speed Cart (wheel are flat)..about $70 for all three (for the foam ones)..or get a lighter stand bag to start walking again?  I opted for the latter and picked up a pretty cool Mizuno Stand Bag (Aerolight I think)..I know there are lighter ones out there..but mine weighs 5 lbs..but I won the auction and the bag only set me back $31..brand new.  To be honest, not sure if I'll notice the additional 1lb.  I know there are much lighter ones out there also..but then I don't want something that only carries 2 clubs.

I was worried I would get tired, but I easily managed to walk a full 18 holes today without a problem.  the funny thing is that I also shot one of my lower rounds in awhile as well. 

I'm contemplating now just to sell my Sun Mountain cart altogether and just use the proceeds toward something else.  It was really refreshing to walk the course and play like I did before.  With the cart bag (on the Sun Mountain) I brought all sorts of additional clubs, but I think that also affected what clubs to play during the round..just too many to decide on.  It was easy to know I was limited to what I could use today and to be honest did not reflect on my I shot even better than my last round.

I was hesitant on how many balls I should bring as my cart bag always has a bunch.  I took a gamble and brought 6..and ended up with 6 at the end.  I can't remember the last time I lost even more than a couple.  Here's to a new, or a return, way to start playing..again.
