"I Ain't Here to Kiss No Babies"

I played yesterday with Paul Sands, from Georgia.  We had a fun day on Watchesaw Plantation East in Murrells Inlet--even if most of the greens were virtually unputtable.  They have essentially lost more than half their greens, and we agrred that we'd have been mad as hell if we'd have paid full price to play it.

On one par five Paul had a carry of about 185 yards from a dodgy lie to carry a hazard.  I asked him whether he shouldn't consider laying up.  He looked at me and said, "I ain't here to kiss no babies!" 

You gotta love it.  Sure enough, he hit it in the hazard.  But he got his money's worth.  I've got to remember that one.  "I ain't here to kiss no babies."  Words to live by.
