Balboa on Christmas Day
Tuesday December 25, 2007 3:20pm
Played today with miguelgolf2007, his friend Ron, a walk-on Lawrence. Cold and windy 4 hour round. First time playing Balboa since they lengthened two holes. The first one, #3, is now a par 5 - I hit a good tee shot into the wind, then hit one of my best shots ever - a 3 wood 220 yards with a tight draw, into the wind, to about 10 feet. Unfortunately my eagle putt was not even close, then missed the birdie and had to settle for par. The second lengthened hole, I was on in regulation. Unfortunately I was on the wrong green. Overall, a tough day for scoring because of the wind. Miguel beat me by 3 after saying he would give me 7 strokes, so I guess I won by 4.
A big thank you to the wife for okaying me playing on Christmas Day.
