After getting ‘pwned’ by Cal and Harry in round number one, I hoped to give them a bit more of a battle on this day.
Things didn’t start out great, as I bogeyed two of the first three holes but then I settled down and started hitting decent shots. I’d par out on the side to shoot 38, still losing the front nine to Cal, who shot a nice 37.
I’d par 10 and 11 then bogey 12 to sit at three over par. Routine par on the tough 13th was followed with my first birdie of the year on the par three 14th to bring me back to +2.
I’d par 15 then birdie 16 to move to +1 on the day. I’m smoking Cal on the back nine by about four shots at this point so it’s looking like I’m a lock to profit on the day. However, I bogey both the 17th and 18th to stumble home with a 75.
Thankfully, I squeak by Cal’s 76 to win the overall and the back nine matches and profit $5.00 US. Big money, baby!
So two rounds of golf in the books before April hits – you can’t complain about that!
I’ll be back later with a post on poker, of all things!
