I will be playing in a 36 hole event this weekend at Reunion Resort. We will play the Nicklaus course tomorrow and the Watson course on Sunday. I am looking forward to this event because I have been playing some really good golf and i can limit my bogeys and continue to make birdies I will have a great shot at winning it!

Birdies, Eagle, Ace! and more...
Today was an eventful round of golf to say the least. My round was highlighted by a hole-in-one on the 145 yard par 3 8th hole. The wind was hurting a bit and blowing hard right to left so I hit a punch 9 iron and it bounced once and hopped right into the hole! This was my first ace in competition and my 3rd of my career. Now let sum up the rest of my round for you with some interesting numbers. I had an ace, eagle, 5 birdies, 4 bogeys and a.... 9 on the par 3 14th hole. Im sure some of you are wondering how I managed to make a 9. Well here it is. I was 3 under par for the round through 13 holes and I caught my tee shot a little heavy on the par 3 and it embedded in the hazard. For me to take relief I would have had to go back to the tee because it was over a pond. So I figured I could pop it out the lie, well I did just that, then it rolled back into the hazard. So I gave it another whack out, and it rolled back into the hazard again. So I gave it another whack, and it rolled back into the hazard but right into the pond this time. So I took my relief and 3 putted my way to an astounding 9. Went from 3 under to 3 over in about 4 minutes. I still had 4 holes to play and I knew the course was playing tough and if I finished strong I still might be able to get into the money. The 15h hole is 525 yard par 5 and I hit driver, 7 iron to about 15 feet and rolled the putt in for eagle! I then got a bad break on 16 and made bogey but answered back with a birdie on 18 to finish with a one over par 73 and in a tie for 4th place. 70 ended up winning the tournament today and I played 17 holes at 5 under par and even a double bogey on that par 3 would have gave me the win. And that ladies and gentleman is why golf is a 4 letter word!
