Great Round Mel Woolf

 Posted last week
Ted, Really sorry to see the season end here in Central Pennsylvania. I did want you to know that on Tuesday November 11,2014 I accomplished a goal I didn't think I was capable of. During my league play at Dauphin Highlands here in Harrisburg, I shot a one under par 71. A front nine with three birdies yielded a three under 33 and a back nine with two bogies came to 38.  In retrospect I must say I need to learn how to stay aggressive. The back nine was all about playing prevent defense. It doesn't seem to work in football and it didn't work for me either. I know I am capable of a better score on that back nine, I have done so before. All in all quite an accomplishment for me, and most of it is your fault.  Thanks,  Mel

Ted Just a note to say thanks for giving me my game back. Now that I am retired, I looked forward to enjoying the game I had when I was younger. Unfortunately that was not the case. Having been a better player, the game was now a struggle, bad shots were very bad and very frustrating. I had a hard time keeping the scores in the low eighties and occasionally would shoot Ninety. It was very depressing and I seriously thought about giving up the game. This is the second season you and I have worked together and the first where we did so with any regularity. I must say I am sorry to see the season end here in Pennsylvania.  Since working with you my enjoyment of the game has returned and my scores have steadily decreased. My bad shots are not so bad and I make good shots on a regular basis. It is once again a pleasure to tee it up and enjoy a round. I am not one who has to shoot a great score to enjoy the game. This is not to say I don't enjoy scoring well. My last ...
