Match Day!!



Hey y’all! Been a long time since I’ve posted in this blog in my quest to get into single digits, but I have made some good progress: my handicap is currently 11.3 and everything feels good right now. However, something has cropped up: a coworker and I are going to play an 18-hole match Wednesday afternoon. Here’s what we were thinking:

•We play Croasdaile, the course where we both work. After a fair bit of discussion, we decided to play the blue/white hybrid tees (6241 yds, 70.8/133). 

•Because our handicaps are about even (mine 11.3, his 12.6), we’ve decided to play straight up. We’ve had some short game contests and it’s pretty much a coin toss as to who wins.

•We want to put something on the line for this match, and here’s what we came up with: the winner would get a dozen golf balls of their choice and lunch of their choice, which amounts to about a $60 match.

I’m feeling pretty good about this match, will definitely keep y’all posted!

Loser buys the dozen balls, winner buys lunch.  Loser gets one sleeve out of the dozen.  Still a challenge, but keeps everything equal, more or less.  And everyone's a winner... lunch, balls... what could be better?  Winner still gets bragging rights, until the next match.

Well? How did it turn out?

Who has the thinner wallet?

It never happened unfortunately. Something came up last minute and we weren’t able to play.
