4th of July red, white & blue Flag tournament
My neighbor Jeff and I were partners. The format is 6 from the blue tees, 6 from the white tees and 6 from the red tees. We started on hole 17 both had pars. I was in the trash on the next 2 holes but my partner picked me up. On hole #8 which is a par5 5 played the forward or red tee markers hit a high tee shot through the trees protecting the right front side of the fairway got a huge bounce and had 115 to the pin. Hit my approach iron to about 2′ and eagled the hole! I carded a net 2 with handicap. On 10 hit my drive into the trees / hazard on the right side found it in a small clearing chipped out which left me 140 to the pin. Hit my 8 iron to about 30′ leaving a twister for par. I rammed the putt home for par. It wasn’t pretty but effective. Jeff holed about a 35′ putt on 12 for another eagle net double eagle. On hole 13 played the forwards again and this time I striped my drive right down the middle leaving 82 yards to the pin. Little sand wedge to about 12′ and this putt was straight into the hole for birdie! We were in the clubhouse at 65 net 54. We were the winners an of course heard the sandbagger calls from the peanut gallery. It was great fun!
