Made two birdies today, neither of them repeats, which is great news for me! Made the first on the par-3 3rd after hitting a PW to about eight feet, the second on the 12th hole, another par-3, after hitting a 7I to about 12ft. I also came really close to two more. Nearly made a 20-footer for birdie on the fifth hole, and came up a roll short of one on the tenth hole (which would’ve been another repeat).
That’s five birdies now. I think I can complete this challenge. The only hole I might not birdie, if I don’t complete it, is our thirteenth hole, a long and narrow par-4. But I’m confident that I can do it before December 31. Just need a few more days where I get two or three birdies in a round, one or more of them new ones. I’m giving myself good looks, but I just need to start rolling the rock better.
Has anyone noticed that this hole is almost a mirror image of no. 5 at Whispering Woods? I would play up the right half of the fairway with a slight fade and hope to roll up near the front edge of the green. It is 250 yards to carry the trap from the black tee, which is my absolute best drive, so I would not aim over the trap unless there was a big tailwind.
