Selfishly, the only picture I took was of the second green. We went with 6 iron, and lasered it at 116 yards. Lihu hit a bounding ball up the right side that left us with about 20 feet for birdie. I hit kind of a flop 6-iron that landed a yard or so left of the pin and rolled out (the one of the left is Nate's).
We ended up shooting +3 for the round. Three bogeys, never did roll in a birdie putt with the 6-irons, despite Nate's backhanded attempts.
Sunday, I was with Bill again, @georgep, and @Divot Master. We ended up with 68 (IIRC) points, but it was a fun round.
Bill hit the our group's gustiest shot of the day (code for "maybe the dumbest shot of the day that turned out REALLY well" ) on the 8th tee. Driver to a fairway that tightens where you'd be landing a driver, and he killed the thing straight down the middle. He made gross par (net birdie) IIRC.
- I nearly holed out from the fairway on the 4th hole (after a 4-iron tee ball a bit chunked and toed into the hazard left, a drop, and a chunked 8-iron that got lucky). Ball mark was just a few inches from the cup, and it nicked the flagstick. That was despite taking enough turf to resod my backyard post-impact.
- I hit the ball pretty well most of the day, but not as far as Mike and Erik could tell you. Of my handful of poor shots (and putts, thanks to the 16th green), they saw every.single.one.
- That pin on 17th was diabolical if you had a long putt.
- If Bill had a better shot than the tee ball at 8, it was his second at 10. He got a nice kick left after hitting it tee ball towards the right trees, then hit an awesome approach shot to just short of the green. (I won't mention his 4-putt for net par. )
- Marshall was very consistent throughout. Fairways and greens, fairways and greens. His local knowledge really helped on a few holes, especially since we had only played the front on Saturday.
- George had a much better back nine. The rest of us, on the other hand...
The playoff was two guys at 30, so 29 is pretty darn good.
