Old Fogy Golf

first_imgI probably will get a lot of grief for this title, but this what a lot of my friends call their weekly golf excursions. Batesville has a large group that either travels to North Branch on Mondays or some other local course and plays a good round of golf. After golf I think they spend a little time at the 19th hole. Unless you do not like to be with people, this is a great way to enjoy your retirement years. First of all, you get to shoot the **** (or something like that) and second, there are many ways to set up a sporting proposition that adds just a little more interest to the game. Most of them play for nickels and dimes, so even if your golf is a bit lacking in skill, you won’t lose the car on a game. It also is a great way to exercise–especially when you leave the golf cart in the shed and walk 9 or 18 holes. Most of the local courses have special rates at least one day of the week or have some kind of senior discount as well. The weekly games become bragging rights at breakfast the next morning, and this is another way to spend those retirement years away from the TV set or rocking chair. Another thing nice is that most of the guys are very flexible in each others’ skill levels so that all feel pretty much at home. There are all kinds of ways to handicap a round and keep it fun and fair. After all, most of these guys play golf for fun and most weren’t on “the tour” before they retired. If you enjoy golf and like to play with a group, just go to one of these courses, usually on Monday morning, and join in. I am sure you will enjoy it.last_img read more

LEADING OFF: Blue Jays debut in Buffalo; Clevinger out

first_img A look at what’s happening around the majors Tuesday:___NEW DIGSBaseball’s nomads, the Toronto Blue Jays, finally move into their new home at Sahlen Field in Buffalo, New York, when they play the Miami Marlins. It’ll be the first time this year the Blue Jays are the host team. Canada’s government wouldn’t let them hold games at Rogers Centre in Toronto, fearful of opponents traveling into the city amid the coronavirus pandemic. Pittsburgh offered to let the Blue Jays play at PNC Park when the Pirates were on the road, but Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf wouldn’t sign off on it.That left the club’s Triple-A affiliate in Buffalo, which last hosted a regular-season Major League Baseball game in 1915 when the Buffalo Blues finished sixth in the eight-team Federalist League. The wait hasn’t been quite as long for the Blue Jays, who spent the first two-plus weeks of the season bouncing from Tampa to Washington to Atlanta to Boston waiting for preparations at 16,600-seat Sahlen Field (all but a few of which will be empty) to be complete.“We haven’t played in Buffalo, so it’s still a road trip it feels like,” said Toronto manager Charlie Montoyo, whose team is 5-8 after hopscotching up and down the East Coast. “But I’m going to say after the first couple of games, then it kind of becomes our home ballpark.”SUSPENSION SUSPENSEThe A’s and Astros are awaiting word from Major League Baseball about likely punishments stemming from a bench-clearing fracas Sunday. Oakland outfielder Ramon Laureano said Monday he charged Houston’s dugout after Astros hitting coach Alex Cintrón made a crude remark about his mother, sparking the melee. A’s manager Bob Melvin is calling for harsh punishments for Cintrón. Houston skipper Dusty Baker said Cintrón is “remorseful.”PARTY FOULIndians right-hander Mike Clevinger won’t make his scheduled start against the Cubs after Cleveland learned he joined rotation-mate Zach Plesac in violating COVID-19 protocols by going out after a game Saturday in Chicago. Plesac was forced to travel home separately from the club Sunday, while Clevinger flew home with teammates without disclosing that he had been with Plesac.Cleveland said Clevinger will be quarantined and tested until he registers two negative results in 72 hours. Clevinger and Plesac could be facing additional discipline from the team.In other Indians news, manager Terry Francona will return to the club after missing eight games to rest while dealing with a gastrointestinal condition that has bothered him since spring training in Arizona.MAX IS BACKNationals ace Max Scherzer (0-1) is set to make his scheduled start against the Mets at Citi Field after leaving his previous outing early because of a hamstring issue. The three-time Cy Young Award winner lasted only one inning last Wednesday against New York due to a hamstring problem that first cropped up July 29 versus Toronto. But he felt good while throwing a bullpen Sunday and will try to keep Washington rolling in the wake of a 16-4 blowout over the Mets in the opener of a four-game series Monday.Image credits: AP Associated Press Television News WATCH US LIVE SUBSCRIBE TO US LIVE TV FOLLOW UScenter_img Last Updated: 11th August, 2020 09:37 IST LEADING OFF: Blue Jays Debut In Buffalo; Clevinger Out Baseball’s nomads, the Toronto Blue Jays, finally move into their new home at Sahlen Field in Buffalo, New York, when they play the Miami Marlins Written By First Published: 11th August, 2020 09:36 IST COMMENTlast_img read more
