As I’m sure I’ve said before, I’m in 3 golf clubs here in town. Two of them have year long match play tournaments and the last player standing is the club champ. I’ve been trying to get TO the club champ match in one particular club for 4 years. Somehow I made it this year.
Tomorrow is the 27 hole match play final. It comes two days after I registered one of my worst rounds of the year (82). It will be me against a former pro who is as cool as a block of ice. Not a long hitter, but very steady. He’ll try to par me to death and hope I make mistakes. I’m going to really have a hard time controlling my nerves as even typing this post I feel them.
I know I’m going to have some knee knocker swings and putts, but so will my opponent. In my opinion match play is the purest and most exciting form of golf. Hopefully I’ll still think that way after my match tomorrow.
A report will follow.
