Yesterday’s round was the 3rd meeting in the Swilor/Guru golf blogger matches. The first two were taken by Luke Swilor. The 2nd was a pretty humiliating day for me as I shot my worst score of the year in 45mph winds and lost seven balls while Luke Shot an amazing 70.
Yesterday’s match found me in very good form, striking the ball well and putting well. Luke was not at the top of his game and I was able to come out with the win 6-and-4, with a couple of won presses as well. I caught Luke at a good time for me and a bad time for him.
Highlights for me included eagling the par-5 13th hole (our 4th hole since we played the back first), and birdieing the 17th and 18th holes. My round of 72 was pretty good for me, considering that this lateral hazard ridden course is extremely tight and there was a strong wind all day.
So I’ve finally notched my first win against Luke for a 1-2 record.
