I put 4 balls in the water in a tournament this past weekend! Just call me Tin Cup!

1 post in this topic


Played in my very first 2 day tournament this past weekend. I'm a 14 HC but they had me at 17 since they based everybodies HC from the blacks.. I shot great during the 1st day! Had 4 birdies but still ended up shooting an 85.. Had some doubles and triples that really ruined the score.. But i was still in good position to get in the money being -4 from my HC.. Then 2nd day I was doing fine til #8 came.. It was Par 3 about 157 yards.. Water in front and water on the left.. Needed at least 140 to carry the green.. Decided to go with a chocked down 7 with a nice and easy swing.. First shot pulled it to the right and splash! 2nd ball at the drop zone was 108... Short with my PW! 3rd ball again short with my PW! Moved up to about 57 yards and 4th ball short with my SW! finally 5th ball was able to get on the green and 2 putt for an 11! Tin cup moment! lol.. Ended up shooting a 97! Kinda recovered during the back 9 but also had trouble with another par 3 that had hazards.. Had to take 2 balls off the tee again! Sigh... Ended up +5 strokes from finishing in the money! Oh well still had a great time though.... Its just a game right?
