Well, we stated well enough on Friday, winning our first 2 matches handily. Then the rains came. While I’m a bit of a mudder, my partner is not. We lost the third match, and ended the first day T2 in our flight.
Our first match Saturday, we both played well, but lost to a 4 hcp who carried his team. He began with a double on the first hole, but still managed to shoot 34 for the 9. We were just overpowered that match. The second, and final match brought an absolute deluge of rain. After a 2 hour delay, needed for the course to drain, we managed to eek out a win.
Scoring for the nine hole matches was by points. 1 point to win a hole, 1/2 point for a tie, and 0 points to lose the hole. 1 additional point to win the match. We finished with 26 points, a solid second place in the flight, but not good enough to advance to the shootout.
All in all, a fun event, as always.
