Fathers Day Golf

Alicia and I decided to go up to Pinetop to visit her dad Jimmy for the weekend. Jimmy and I played 27 holes at Silver Creek golf course, just outside of Show Low, and I beat him with a score of 88 so he now owes me lunch. We're now 2-2 since we've been keeping track and betting lunch on the match. It's a fun bet.

Jimmy got a great gift from his wife...a SkyCaddie GPS unit. I bought it and she paid me back so that it would be a surprise and not show up on their credit card. It's a pretty neat little unit. He got the SG5 which has the color screen and the IntelliGreen® technology, enabling golfers to measure the full depth and shape of the green from any angle of approach and shows distances for all targets and hazards on any of SkyGolf’s many thousands of professionally mapped courses. Can you tell I copied and pasted that last sentence from their website?

It was so nice to have the GPS unit on this course with very little yardage markers, but soon everyone was asking Jimmy to give them the yardage for each shot. He was running around giving everyone their precies yardage to the pin. It would have annoyed me, but I think Jimmy kind of liked being needed. :)
