The Goofy Game of Golf Searching for the Answer

Today was course no. 11 Westwood Golf Club, in West Mifflin Pa. This use to be Duquesne Country Club but went public about 7 years ago. It plays about 6300 yards from the blues but the 2 nines are totally different. The front 9 plays 3500 yards with a par of 37 and the back is only 2800 yards with a par of 34. The greens were running about a 6 on the stimp meter and were pretty bumpy due to some kind of disease or something on the greens that made little depressions in the green where there was no grass. The fairways are good and the rough is not bad although there are places that are bare. The pins today were in some brutal places and this course has never been really player friendly. It is like they never lost their country club attitude. Of course there was no hot dog at the turn so they fall to 88th place in that department and  will probably fall somewhere between 80th and 90th on the enjoyment level. So naturallly this course is not worth the trip.  The group played fairly well although I continued to have short game and mental blues and shot an 81. Pete shot an 80 and Donna an 89. However as they say at the 87th precinct I may have some real meat here concerning the golf swing. If your not familiar with the 87th precinct it is a great series of books that covers police work for almost 50 years.  Its to0 early to tell but we will see. Last Sunday I shot an even par 71 and today I struck the ball extremely well but I was adding some finishing touches on the swing and it was difficult to score. I hit a lot of good shots today that were long because of some solid ball striking. The season is winding down and the weather is supposed to turn nasty the next couple of days but Sunday might be a possibility. It was nice to get this course out of the way. Eleven down 79 to go.
