I’m a little behind on some posts and for a very good reason, I’ve been golfing like mad recently.  In the last six days I’ve played 108 holes of golf:

  • Monday: Net match (won)
  • Tuesday: 18 hole practice round at Hidden Valley CC
  • Wednesday: 9 hole league at Bonneville, plus an additional 9
  • Friday: 27 hole tournament
  • Saturday-Sunday: 36 hole tournament

So the first news is to proudly report that my dad and I won the Spring Invitational at Hidden Valley Country Club on Friday.  That’s a 27-event which includes 9-holes best ball, 9-holes alternate shot, and 9-holes scramble.  We won by a mere .2 of a stroke. Handicaps were fractionally divided, thus the decimal points.

Shot of the Year

The possible difference maker (one could count every shot as the sole difference maker however) is the eagle I made on the tough par-4 5th hole of the lakes course.  This is a long par-4 uphill.  After a good drive I hit a 5-iron from 181 uphill.  I wasn’t thrilled with the shot and actually did some whining about it.  But the ball released right up the center of the green toward the pin.  Upon getting to the green there was no ball to be found.  Only one place it could have been, in the hole and that’s where I found it!  Since I got a pop there that made my score a “net one.”  Never had one of those before.

Love Playing Golf With My Dad

It is always fun to play golf with my dad, and we have really done well over the years in many tourneys at his club.  These are times I value greatly, and one of the best parts of my personal golf experience.
