Yeah, the group is fun, 16 guys, big gamblers, drinkers, etc...most in the scratch to 7 hcap range...I would have done it differently but impossible to get a group this size on the same page so just going with it.  Im going to go out early..bum around playing local courses and drinking in the local pubs for a week or so...Scotland is in my blood I guess...I dont really get the rhythm for the game unless playing every day, I realized its been almost 15 years (the month before getting married I took a bunch of accumulated vacation so was off for 2 months) since Ive taken a good chunk of time to do something just for my own enjoyment...3 weeks of 18 holes a day and some shepherds pie and good whisky in my belly every night sounds like just what the doctor ordered...
