I earned #1 from Leo D. last Wednesday (7/01) at Rosedale (scores Chap?). I successfully defended it once (Cliff Drive this week) but handed it to Nick Winkelbauer
last night after a great contest at Rosedale
We started on new #9 where we both just missed aces! I hit the facemask from 20' - Nick didn't. That pretty much sealed the deal, as we both 2'd #14, and 4'd #1. Nick and I had the same deuce putt on #2 but couldn't convert. None of us deuced #3
I had an easy (?) sidearm upshot for a three after a nice drive on #4 but failed, and Nick nicely recovered from an early tree for his 4. The new #5 took most of the wind out of my sails when I nailed the first light pole and left the upshot short for a four. Nick took a three thanks to a well-placed tree on the upshot.
THEN... Nick bangs a nice 40+ footer on #7 for deuce, while I got a lucky break on my drive which was nearly pin-high right.
All three of us (including Phil) had nice 3's on Short Island #8.
Last hole #9 original in the 406' straight-away pin... Nick puts his drive way right, near the old original pin. He's clapping before his disc even lands, as he parks the upshot right under the basket. Driving my new 160g R-Pro Boss, I parked the other long pin near the gap... and hit my best putt of the night for a deuce - to still finish one behind
. I guess I should have aced it??
Scores: Nick 54, CD 55. Comin' up short again!>%@#? (Nice shooting to Phil too with a 59
Great job, Nick! You deserve it. Not sure if I deserve #162 though... ouch
Thanks for the Bud, bud!
