I played in the Seminary Golf Tournament yesterday. I love playing in fundraiser tournaments because you use scramble rules. That means everyone shoots from the same spot every shot. You take the best of the 4 balls and everyone moves there for the next shot. I golfed with Bruce and Bill from church and John, who helps support seminarians through the food pantry at the Seminary.
I told Bruce, my cart-buddy, as we were getting started that I felt it would be a good day if I had 5 shots that were usable by the team. I got to 4 rather quickly, then stalled for a while. As it happens, there was a camera crew on hand for my 5th usable shot:
Ok, maybe it wasn’t quite that dramatic, but it was pretty awesome. I chipped in a birdie from about 15 yards away, the first time I’ve ever gotten the ball in the cup from off the green. It felt pretty good. 🙂
I ended with 7 or 8 usable shots, a little more than 10% of our total shots used (68 ) for the day, plus I had a few more that were pretty good, but we decided to use another ball that was a little closer. After finishing the round, we enjoyed a nice dinner and then headed home.
