"That course is gonna eat you up"

Lessons are good. You learn about things that aren't immediately obvious but make such a huge difference to your golf.

Things like how to stand and how to hold things.

D-Long also suggested I play courses easier than Oakhurst as it's not particularly forgiving for beginners and "that course is gonna eat you up".
Bruh, tell me something I haven't already figured out.

.SAT...NW winds 20 to 30 kt with gusts up to 40 kt. Wind waves
11 to 13 ft. NW swell 5 to 7 ft at 16 seconds. 

We still thought it might be worth the drive down ...
Big ol' nope.

How do you know you're getting better at golf? When your slice turns into a hook.
At least that's what I was told.


What a hook does is send 11 balls into the abyss. And put a 129 on your card.
54 putts probably didn't help either.

Marco's Pinnacle


Finally had some great visibility at Pt Lobos - the water felt a lot colder than it was but we could easily see 40-50ft out. Perfect conditions for D'Or and I to try for the 4th (5th?) time to get to Marco's Pinnacle. The last few attempts were ... sub-optimal.

I didn't actually do anything different other than go a lot slower on the trigger but that was all that was needed. Going slowly and paying attention to what was around me got me to where I wanted to go - whaddaya know.
We stopped at Taco on the way out and back for some camera time.

Gorgeous dive! Lots of fish around - the big ling cods and cabezons looked like they were nesting as they did not want to move away from the rocks they were around. Beautiful hydrocorals everywhere near Taco and Marco's and the usual fly by from the sea lions.

-> 81ft, 40-50ft viz, 50F

I got some waypoints on this route which I need to use again next time to make sure they're good enough to go into the navigation memory bank.
