Did you know that tin doesn’t rust? Yet the Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz had a rust problem thanks to the Wicked Witch? Humans don’t rust, either, but when we start playing we can sure have a lot of rust on our skills! I didn’t play badly, but it was obviously the first tournament of the season. On the positive side, I only had three bogeys. I finished with a 99, good enough to tie for third (which is the last cash position). My putting coach, one of the best players out there, won with a clean (no bogeys) 83. When best ball time came, that was a different story. I went 13 on the front and 12 on the back for a 25. That was enough to easily win. (Too bad I couldn’t bank some of those shots for later! ) Better than any score or playing, we’re back!! It’s been a long winter, and the only player I’ve seen over the winter is my putting coach (who graciously came to my dad’s funeral). It’s just so good to be back, playing the game I love....and the only one I’m any good at.

@JolietJake -- oh, well, better to rust out than it is to burn. Or something like that.

I think magic over comes natural things like rusting and not rusting. I don't think I have ever played golf.
