Picture Perfect Weather

Me in my new white k-state tech tee and my buddy Isaac

Today we had absolutely amazing weather. Low 80's, sunny all day, and not windy at all, which is unusual for Kansas. It was the perfect day for golf!

I played in my church's Fathers Day golf scramble. Yes, I know Fathers Day is in June, but we got rained out that day. As it turns out, I am glad we picked today as the make up day because not only was it phenomenal weather, my buddy Isaac was able to play.

My friend Isaac is an incredible golfer. He won longest drive and hit numerous 300-yard bombs today. He is seriously the reason that our team took 2nd place in the tournament. The rest of us weren't much help. It is fun to play with someone who really knows how to play golf well, and we had a great time today.

A funny thing happened on one of the holes. Another guy in our group was taking a practice swing and his club slipped out of his hands and flew 50 yards into a small pond. He took his shoes and socks off and waded out into the middle of the pond to retrieve his club. It was hilarious.

Our 2nd place prize was a $10 gift certificate to Burger King. Yes, my next meal will be with the King. After golf, I had soccer coaches and parents meeting all afternoon, and my son is getting excited about playing soccer again. Games start in about a month.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

It's been a long time since I've golfed at all, but I always enjoyed scrambles. Sounds like a great day.

Except for the guy who had to retreive his club from the pond...

I'm not much for playing golf, but I'm a big fan of driving around in the cart all day long. :)

The weather has been great lately, I love it! It's been so nice for running the last few days.
