|I hit this green!!!|
Without question, the highlight of the round was my tee shot on number eight. The hole is a short par 4 that you can play one of two ways: an iron or hybrid off the tee to leave a 100 yard approach, or fly the ball over 220 yards and contend with a well bunkered green. I was coming off of a terrible bogey on 7, and my Dad and I were three down in our match. I had a little aggression and it was time to unload.
When we got up to the green, my ball was about 15 feet from the hole. It was a pretty straight, uphill putt. I hit the putt well, but it just burned the right edge of the hole and left me with a tap in birdie. Not bad if I do say so myself.
Thanks in larger part to my driver, I put together a scrappy 86 today. I was consistent with all the clubs in my bag except for my putter, and managed to finish the day with only one double bogey. The rest were pars and birdies.
We still ended up losing the match but hey, when you can hit the ball like I did today, it sure feels like a win.
