This morning, at Warrenbrook Golf Course, I achieved the golfer's dream of shooting my age.
I had a 79.
I've had better scores...but they were years ago.
This is the first time I've broken 80 in two years.
Almost missed it.
Had a 39 on the front...and was optimistic, because I almost always do better on the back at Warrenbrook.
When I got to the 18 hole (a par 4 over water) I was at 34...which means I could still get a double bogey and card a 40...which was what I needed.
I was nervous...no doubt. My tee shot was short and to the left...and my long approach ended up in a huge bunker at the right side of the green.
Sand wedge moved the ball from the mid-back of the bunker to the front of the bunker.
I wanted to throw up.
My second sand wedge shot only got me to the collar...a couple inches off the green.
I was flustered.
I putted...but it came up short by about 4 feet!
Then I drained the second putt.
Hope I've got a couple more of these rounds in me.
Congratulations. My only hope of doing that is playing putt putt.
