    I've shot 56 before, but still had 5 holes left to play.

    Holy Krap.

    56? Jeezus H. Are we sure this wasn't a course with a windmill on it?

    Well, not to discount the feat, cause it's incredible, but the course was just 6,000 from the tips? Hell, that's the distance for the women's tees at my home course. The tips are 7,077 there.

    Still, you have to be spot on and making some putts to even sniff at low 60s. I can't imagine being that in the zone. My 3-under 69 is my career round and I was so in the zone that day.

    Here's the scorecard for the course. He played the blue tees--6,000 ain't a long course and look at the yardages on some of the par fours.


    The course is also 7600feet above sea level so those 270 yard drives are probably coming in at two ninety .

    Anyway, five birdies & 2 eagles on the front--26 going out.

    Still, you have to have a lot going for you. Pretty damn amazing.

    Please, Kim Jong Il shot 38 under par in his first career round.

    Bullshit. The most important club is the foot wedge. Since it's not an official club, when you use it it's not an official stroke.

    Played in a 4-man scramble last Saturday. Instead of giving us mulligans, they give us 10 feet of string to use.

    For example: If the 4 of you leave an eagle putt 6 inches short....peel 6 inches off the string, mark down your eagle and go to the next.

    We shot -19 (52) 13 birdies, 3 eagles, 2 pars.

    Took fuckin fourth.

    Two teams shot -21 (50) and one shot -20 (51)

    I've played in scrambles like that...once you make that second par, you might as well walk in and start drinking.

    What do you mean start drinking?

    Yes it is.

    Two years ago, for the Nationwide event I do PR for, I put together a media foursome for one of the pro-ams that included one TJ Simers.

    Simers and I were the hacks: one of the TV guys and a Times editor were both serious sticks, never mind our pro, who shot 68.

    We shot 49: including three eagles (including on a par-4 the TV guy drove), Forty freakin' Nine... and finished SECOND.

    I do like that string idea, however, Chef.
