I play golf about 2-3 times a year, so I don't sweat it very much. At some point during each time I play I go into "idiot savant" mode where I just rip off a set of great shots, putts, etc. Since we were playing best ball the "idiot savant" mode was perfect when it happened.
This time it was a 2-3 hole stretch where I hit some great 5-irons from the fairway, chipped nicely and drained (or got really close on) a couple long putts. The highlight was a five-iron from 175 yards to an elevated green that was fronted by nasty heather and weeds. The shot went up beautifully, carried the hazard and plopped down on the green, stopping 10 feet from the hole. The serious golfers who were with me all said "that was an awesome shot." We made a birdie on the hole.
A fun day, indeed. Perhaps I should golf a little more often.
