Prvni Misto, A-Flight, GCP Tournaj

Won my first A-Flight Tournament . . .

That’s two-tournaj-in-a-row, if you can believe it . . .

 

43-47=90, 33 Stableford points off a 15.2 handicap . . .

I was the only entrant in the A-Flight whose handicap wasn’t raised .  . .

Altho’ the front9 was almost satisfactory, my back9 was very disappointing . . .

I tho’t it was just me and my bum knee,

but apparently the high wind was throwing a lot of people off their game . . .

 

The wind didn’t bother me at all, tho’ I had a couple of shots blown off line,

and it did seem that into-the-wind was tougher than with-the-wind was easy,

but I spent all my extra strokes where I always do,

in my short game & putting . . .

I still putted well most of the day, lots of one-putts,

But I had 6 on two par 3s, floundering around,

And my I took multiple shots to get out of the sand at least 3 times.

 

Still no birdies . . . which is really wearing on this boy . . .

My closest miss of a birdie was on the awesomely long par 5 #4,

Crushed my drive, but the turf was so wet I got no roll, that made for just average distance,

Hooked my 7wood 2nd shot so bad it wound up in front of the #5 tee, but with a clear shot at the green,

Hit the best 6iron of my life to 8ft past the pin, a putt I KNOW, I have had before,

But the dang thing did NOT break right like it was sposed to . . .

A very galling par . . . 8^) . . .

 

Finished 5-6-7, bogey, triple, double,

which I attributed to my bad knee – I’ve NEVER hit a bad tee shot on #9/#18 before –

and I HATE not to finish strong,

so I was totally amazed to win,

and Kvjetaak was Astonished or Astounded, depending on which is more Amazed . . . 8^D . . .

 

My prizes were a rain coat, a gimme cap, a golf magazine subscription, and a trophy that is the ugliest thing I have ever loved . . . 8^D . . .
