Good- Road tripping down to Taft (near Bakersfield,Ca.) to play a tornament a couple years ago.
Bad- Drinking a couple of pitchers of beer with my pizza then going to some little bar and doing shots with the bartender the rest of the night.
UGLY!- Puking after every single drive I threw during the tourney. It's also hard to putt when your head is throbbing in pain! :oops:

That'll learn me!

Good: Playing in my first A-tier event.
Bad: I averaged 880 over 3 rounds, took 20th out of 26 in AM1
The Ugly: Tournament directors who run 18 groups of 4 through nine holes during an A-tier event.

Good: Consistently hitting the valley gaps with my putter. It's too cool to see a putter fly 275 or more over an enormous valley while my friends are throwing Flashes, Wraiths, etc.

Bad: Lost a silver ring that a good friend recently gave to me on the course. I guess I'll get the word around to keep an eye out for it but it might as well be a needle in a haystack.

Ugly: Where did my 15' putt go?

Good: A new course is opening near where I live so i don't have to drive an hour to get to a decent course. Thanks to Shane Kruse we will now have a nice course in Hutchinson. :D

Good: Tossed a +2 on a course that I normally score +7 on earlier this week

Bad: The two jackasses in front of me when playing my last round threw four or five drives at each hole while I stood waiting my turn.

Ugly: Same jackasses left their bottles and wrappers on the course, so I picked them up. Not to mention one of them pissed in the bushes next to a house that bordered the park, the owner didn't look to happy.

Good: The first time I played league in the fall of 05, I shot a 97, ouch! Now I shoot around a 55 to a 57 and on the brink of getting my first even or below par.

Bad: It's on a more intermediate course so I don't put a lot of stock into my decreasing handicap.

The good: played my first league weekly for the first time in many many months and won for the first time ever.

The Bad: Bag tag whent from 13 to 32 which sucks, but i got screwed because most of the bag tags in the challenge were much lower than my own a result of a few very good players joining the club recently and by default got very low bag tags.

The ugly: I was reminded of my old handicap of 15 that will hopefully be dropping soon and hereing the jeers from the other guys about bagging my handicap and taking there money

Good- The wizard - so glad I switched from my trusty magnet.
Good #2 - Thanks to good putting and approaches, I played a solid round last night.
Bad - Ripped open my finger driving, again. Had to switch to mostly low speed discs. Still had a great round - see above.
Ugly - What it looked like after it was ripped open.

Good- warming up for the summer doubles, I aced.

Bad- Didn't place in the summer doubles, had four chain outs

Ugly- During the ace pool throw off, I chained out. Didn't need that $40 anyway.
