Played the last 16 of our pairs knockout today. What a game! Was 3 down after 10, got back to level after 18 and won on the 6th extra hole. Most controversial match of golf i've ever played. 3 of us were in one bunker on last with us 1 down, with my dad in a different one. Dad plays and runs through the green, first opponent stiffs his, with me and other guy dead under lip in the bunker. I try and get out but dont, the ball comes back and hits me, i pick up, opponent manages to get out playing away from green but nowhere so picks up. I've already conceded the game in my head (but still making opponent knock it in to win, with my dad with a chip to play) and look at my ball. I then realise that it wasn't my ball. Turns out that the first opponent (who's stiff) played mine. I thought that meant he then should be out of the hole leaving my dad as the only one left in the hole so should win it. However, we all decide to replay the hole completely. We replay it and my dad makes our par but it left them a 3 footer for the win, horse shoed out. Playoff. The other opponent to the miss on the last then missed a 10 footer on the first extra hole and a putt of less than 2 feet on the 2nd. The same guy then rams in a 30 footer for the half on the 3rd. I make a 10 footer for half on the 4th. On the 5th the guy who 3-putted the last in regulation then had 2 putts from about 35 feet to win it. He leaves his first putt 5 feet short then his 2nd an inch short (by this time his head has completely gone). Finally on the 6th i make a ridiculous up and down from nowhere to take it down. Unreal match of golf!
