For the record, @Pretzel and I shot a 69 (gross) and got smoked 2.5-0.5. (Was a great match though)

Funny game.

It was a great time. @Pretzel's drives were fun to watch. Impressive.

So was @jsgolfer‘s short game.  Many tap-ins for par after missed greens (and one crucial pitch in birdie to top it off)

It sure was a good match and great fun, although we won 2.5-.5, we only won the entire match by 1. Can't get much closer than that.  :beer:

My back still hurts from watching @Pretzelswing,  :-O

Yes that's unfortunately the way match play can go. @Pretzel and many other West players are playing solid golf.

Give it ten years and mine probably will too. Until then I'll enjoy it while I can though! :-D

@Golfingdad and I made 3 or 4 birdies on the back nine, which would be more than enough for a comeback in most cases. Our eastern paint opponents, however, played excellently and managed to hold onto their lead.

Match 2 opening hole becomes a pitch-off. Dan sticks it to tap-in distance.

Match 3 opening hole. Blue discusses options on this downhill lie (photo doesn’t do it justice). 

Phil had just put Red on green to about 10ft from nearly same yardage as his eagle hole out yesterday on this hole.

    • What clubs are you guys using? Did you get a set or did you go with the clubs you use the most on the course?  I noticed I use the 9, PW, putter, driver and 5 the most.   I do need a 3 in my set. 
    • I can send you some club head covers if you like!  😁 They look good. Hope you love them. 
    • Played a local course a buddy runs. Temperature at tee time was 19F.  Hardly any snow on the ground. Previous experience under such conditions has taught me the ball will land and bounce like it hit a concrete parking lot, best off playing a links style run it up game. So the T300s stayed home. Out came the "other" bag with my beloved Yonex ADX tour blades. Threw in a Mizuno Grad 1 iron for tee shots. Brought along one wood, my trusty M6 9 wood just in case I had to go over the wall to get  out of jail. Hit the ball well, knocking down everything shorter than a 6 iron. Got a lot of bad bounces, and a few good ones. Shot 87, which Ill take considering I was wearing Thorogood work boots and could barely feel my hands on the back, Despite winter gloves between shots. I guess I'm getting a little old for this much fun. lol
