    I just entered the Oregon Mid-Amateur again. Fortunately this year it's at a course I am familiar with, so I should have a decent showing.

    I still need to qualify, but that's at a course that I'm even more familiar with so I should be okay.

    I should probably go hit some balls... qualifier is in 13 days and the championship is in 22 days.

    Just got the group tee times. There are 63 of us playing for 21 spots.

    In order of handicaps, my 3.8 puts me at the 48th spot. 13 of the guys are + caps... one of them +5.2!

    This should be fun.

    Handicap, schamandicap - they still have to get the ball into the hole, just like the rest of the field. Play YOUR game - remember, it's you vs. the course. Good luck!

    Well that was interesting....

    Started off: bogey, bogey, bogey, double bogey. +5 after 4 holes. Missed 3 putts inside 3 feet, hit a water hazard, wtf man!
