Par 3 of Death and More!
Hey, everyone!! So, our fall golf season actually has only 2 more weeks left... I can't believe it! At our 1st tournament this fall (the B-W invite), there was a par 3 which we had to play. We nicknamed this hole the "par 3 of death" because there are woods to the right, a creek in front of the green, a huge tree to the left and a massive tree to the right. Basically, you have to hit the ultimate perfect shot to make it through the small space of trees and hit it long enough to stay on or behind the green. This hole didn't treat me as bad during the tournament as it did in previous practice rounds where I would lose close to 4 balls total... on just that hole. On Saturday of the tournament, my ball was RIGHT on the edge of the hazard so I had some serious luck!! And then the next day I hooked it waaaay left so that was ugly. It will always be a horrible hole. This past weekend we played at John Carroll on Saturday and Sunday and then played at Muskingum on Monday! The JCU course is pretty tough to play but I'm sure we'll get some more practice in there before our OACs are held there in the spring! On Monday, we WON our 1st tourney in quite a few years!! That was awesome!! :) We are continuing practice this week and play up at Heidelburg this weekend. Sleepovers are the best so we're all really excited (just as long as it's not a murder motel haha!)!! GO B-W GOLF!! WOOO! :)
PS- Note to Caci: 10+ Tums is straight poison... just thought you should know!
