This past weekend I put into play some new sticks. Sticks can be a synonym for golf clubs, but can also be for cigars. Actually put into play new irons and new cigars, so a double set of sticks!
I was struggling with my game on the front nine. I decided I should tone my intensity down a bit and enjoy a cigar during the round. On the par-5 10th hole I started up this La Gloria Cubana Serie RF from Famous Smoke Shop. I hit a good drive but it kicked right and ended up in a lateral hazard. After taking my drop from the hazard I bombed a 3-wood from 270 and hit the green, past the pin. I then nailed about a 40 footer for birdie. Birdie, even with the penalty for the hazard.
First birdie of the day. Must be the cigar, right?
On the next hole I missed the green left, but chipped in for my second consecutive birdie.
Definitely the cigar!
Two holes later, I made birdie on the par-5 14th.
All told I carded three birdies during this fine cigar’s life. It did kick my butt a little bit. I smoked it a little too fast. Otherwise I might have had another one to try and finish out the last four holes with more birdies.
Cigar holes: Three birdies.
Non-cigar holes: Zero birdies.
I might make the PGA Tour if I just smoke 4-5 of these per golf round.
