League Night Glory Lost

NGAWire® | 26May06

I have a story from league night.

The weather forecast for golf yesterday afternoon was horrid. I decided to go to the course (Willow Creek of course) and wait it out. The rain slowed down, but the skies still looked ominous. No one was going out. It didn’t look that bad. I finally said hell with it and jumped in a cart.

I started on the back nine.

10 – 4i, AW, 20 footer into the cup – Birdie (-1)
11 – 3i, PW, 2 putts from 40 ft (8 footer for par) – Par (-1)
12 – 9i to fringe, 2 putts from 30 ft (6 footer for par) – Par (-1)
13 – 3i, SW to 40 ft, 2 putts – Par (-1)
14 – 6i, AW, lipped out 10 footer – Par (-1)
15 – 1w, 2i, 8i chip and run to 12 ft, knocked in r-l putt – Birdie (-2)
16 – PW (from 140y) to 3 feet, cup in – Birdie (-3)
17 – 1w, SW to 4 inches, tap-in with SW – Birdie (-4)
18 – 1w, 7i (from 180y) to fringe pin high, 20 footer into cup – Eagle (-6)

I’d say an opening 30 is a nice start to any round.

I teed of a 4:46pm and was back in the clubhouse paying for the back nine at 5:27pm.

The back nine wasn’t as successful.

1 – 1w, 7i (from 190y) over green, chip to 10 ft, missed putt – Par (-6)
2 – 4i, 9i (from 150y) way over the green into a hazard, drop, SW pitch to 50 ft, 3 putts – Triple (-3)
3 – PW to 30 ft, 3 putts – Bogey (-2)
4 – 5i, PW (pulled to left), pitch to 20 ft, 2 putts – Bogey (-1)
5 – 5i, PW, SW to 3 ft, r-l putt into the heart – Birdie (-2)
6 – 1W, LW to back fringe, 3 putts from 25ft – Bogey (-1)
7 – PW to 18ft, 2 putts (horrid first putt) – Par (-1)
8 – 1w, LW into bunker, splash out onto fringe, 2 putts from 20 ft – Bogey (E)
9 – 1w, SW to 15 ft, 2 putts – Par (E)

The magic was definitely gone after the triple.

I was back in my car at 6:36pm.
