One-Day CONTEST - Predict @David in FL's Score - Page 4

post #55 of 60

In my defense, I looked at the weather for your area and saw 92 and humid. I thought this might play into a mental error.  It would for me!  I melt in the heat.  Second, you built up your "sandbagging 4 HCP buddy" opponent.  So I assumed he had beat you in the past and it was gnawing at you.

 

Great round.  Congrats.

 

BTW, I beat my sandbagging 9 HCP buddy Thursday.  We finally played in the league round together.  I parred the final three holes to win it.

Yeah, it's been hotter than hell all summer. Yesterday, at 92 or so was actually a little better than last week. Some cloud coverage and a little breeze. Not much, but it beat 95, no clouds and dead still. Another buddy of mine said it best. It was like being in a jar!

I don't beat him all that often, so it's a big deal when I do. These last couple of weeks have been tough on him though, as I've obviously been playing out of my mind. He's REALLY looking forward to the hcp revision on the 1st. One more round on Sunday, so I've gotta make hay while the sun shines! a1_smile.gif

Nice job on your match. That's a great finish to pull out the win! c2_beer.gif

Oh, I see… way to leave out pertinent information! :)

Uh uh! The whole premise of the thread was that I was playing well, and could I keep it up, even in the face of such blatant arrogance.


Truth be told, you're guess was probably closet to what I really expected too. a2_wink.gif

I expect this one to find its way over to the spelling and grammar thread! g2_eek.gif

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.

 

Well done.  Even though I didn't win, I was pretty close. Here were my predictions...

1.  My total score 76

2.  # of birdies (or better) 2

3.  # bogies 6

4.  # doubles (or worse) 0

5.  Final match play results (win/lose and score) against my sandbagging 4 hcp buddy (I get 2 strokes) win 2&1

 

Shortly before I guesstimated your match, I had played in the semi-final seniors flight match at my local club. Ironically enough, to prepare for the club match, I also played a match against my sandbagging buddy who got 9 (yes, I said NINE) strokes, and I defeated him 2 & 1, which was the score of my club match. (The club match is played at scratch, and I pulled it out by shooting a 38 on the back nine.)

 

In the meantime, my sandbagging friend demanded a rematch, got 10 strokes and beat me 3 & 2.

 

Now, my friend and I have the rubber match this coming Monday, followed by the senior flight finals later in the week, where I play a new member to the club.  So, I am hoping my experience at the club of 20 years, plus the preparation of playing a sandbagging friend will hold me in good stead.

 

Best of luck in your upcoming matches.
