Golf Alfredov - Plzen
Monday, August 24, 2009
So K-taak investigated closer . . .
#5 – funny water approaches to the green
#6 – freaky drives across the water to the fairway
#11 – strange tee position on the right side
#14 – this hole must be just joke
#18 – finishes on the water island
Looking forwards LOL . . .

Miss-te-teetsah – K-taak says its hard to pronounce even for Czechs.
6201M, Par 72, Slope 134
As we zoomed past Cerny Most, the last stop on the Yellow Line, I asked, “Where in Blazes is this place?” Cerny Most being the edge-of-the-world as far as I am concerned . . . .
“It is on the Parry-Fairy of Praha . . . ” K-taak started to explain . . .
“Wait a minute” I interrupted, “pull over, I gotta hold up a bank for some cash!”
He whipped over into a buslane in a cloud of blue smoke and parked -- I jumped out to hold up a cash machine. It was my bank, Ceska Sportelna . . . they show no golfers, but hockey players, sport-wise, in the ads, but I bank with them anyway. I dashed back to the car with my cash . . .
“what is parry-fairy?”
“Like the edge . . . “ k-taak starts again . . .
hoo-hoo-hoo-hooooooooo. Periphery. Every single Czech pities my pathetic attempts at literacy, but Parry-fairy! I’m such a word person. I will use parry-fairy from now on . . . 8^D . . .

Club Praha Tournaj - B Prvni Misto
Yeh, I did it again. 1st place in the B group, finishing with a 39-50=89 . . . Prizes included a Bohemian Crystal Trophy, a Club Praha Coffee mug, a Club Praha golf shirt, a darkovou kartu (a gift card) to a sushi restaurant, some tees & ballmark tools, and an umbrella . . . I traded the umbrella for some balls instead to a fellow who needed an umbrella . . . 8^) . . .they lowered my handicap to 21 . . . it needs to be 20 or less to get into the A group . . .8^( . . . really, that's more important to me than winning a B flight tournaj . . . but I wanted that coffee cup, B-a-a-a-a-a-d!
