I ended up playing solo–for a while–and I teed it up on number 1, and hit a little left. This is not normal for me, as usually there is a slice involved. Still, a short wedge later, shorter chip, and 4 foot putt later, it was in the hole. A par!!! Not a bad way to start.
I did end up catching a group who invited me to play, and ended the day 7 over. Again, not a bad first half-round (and based on this score, Tommy owes me a corkscrew).
Speaking of corkscrews, some interesting ones arrived yesterday in the mail. A four pillar king’s rack, a small wooden handle with a button, and a rather impressive decorative metal handle.
This is not a roundlet, but instead a decorative metal handle that has rosettes on the end that unscrew to allow for the handle come apart. Underneath? A wood handled Williamson. I am currently researching the piece to see where it comes from. Clearly the corkscrew is Williamson, but who made the handle? I know Barry Taylor has one like this, but does anyone else?
