Alright boys and girls, the results are in.
I'm pleased, but very surprised to say that the golf gods did NOT give me the beat down that I so richly deserved.
I played a solid round. Only made one really long putt, about 25' for my only birdie, but nothing really heroic.....and 2 missed putts under 6 feet.
1. My total score: 77
2. # of birdies (or better): 1
3. # bogies: 6
5. Final match play results (win/lose and score) against my sandbagging 4 hcp buddy (I get 2 strokes): I won.....5&4! He had a tough day, shooting 78 with 2 birdies after the match was over.
The winner of the contest.....and the only one to predict the correct score of 77:
Also one of only 5 of 18 that predicted that I'd win the match. Thanks buddy! I'll PM you for your info and get your ball mark in the mail to you.
Thanks for playing everyone! Believe it or not, I had a real reason for doing this. Boredom and natural narcissism ( ) notwithstanding, who can guess what that real reason was?
Begin "Final Jeopardy" music.......
