September Golf Report

Birdie_sept1You may have noticed the short hiatus in my monthly golf reports. An absolute avoidance of competitive matches for two months left me little to write about.

But when I returned to the competitive arena in September, I birdied the first hole and never trailed in a match that was effectively over by the time I made another birdie at the ninth.


That impressive victory was balanced by a round the next week in which I walked off the course after 11 holes so that I could do some work. Let’s call that a no contest, and a record for September of one victory and zero defeats.

Botanizing-indiaIn September, I visited golf courses in Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, and India, but I’ve been more interested in botanizing and collecting data than in playing golf. 

When one makes as many birdies as I do, there is little need for practice. Thus, while others may take every opportunity to play golf, I prepare for my upcoming matches with botanical expeditions to the Western Ghats
