My sweetest moment in golf.
Course:- Royal Rosnay
Hole:- 157M 13th
Club:- 5 Iron
Playing in the Open Comp with Zookeeper. He blasts an 8 iron straight down the guts nice and high as he does. Lands in middle of green and stops around 10ft from hole.
I step up with my 5 iron expressing my disdain at his length with an 8 iron. The strike is pure, one of those ones where you feel it come off the club face, but don't necessarily hear it, Nice little fade into mid green, bounces over Zookeepers ball and runs toward the flag which is at the back of the green. We lose sight of the ball and I hear this faint metal 'tink'. I turn to Brad and simply exclaim,. "That's in the farkin hole!!" He smuggly suggest it has gone through the back.
As we could not see the bottom of the flag until about 70 metres out, it wa a big BOOYAHHH and a quick, "Get that up ya" no sign of the ball and was not on the bank at the back of the green. She layed comfortably nestled at the bottom of the cup. A great feeling.
Zooey has photo's, just need him to upload them.
My one regret...... I had used up the Vision 808's I had in the bag whilst I was down the Sth Coast only getting back yesterday arvo, Did not restock the bag, so the lucky ball was a previously loved Srixon Q star, which was one of only 3 old balls I had left in my bag. Sorry BOZ.
