Was playing the Orange Tees at Knobley Mt. DGC tonight. It's a short down-hill shot with the basket protected on both sides by trees and shrubs. I had a Cubby Ace on it before while just throwing several discs from the tee. I normally don't go for the ace and tend to play the hole conservatively short for the easy two. Tonight, though, I just had a feeling and really felt like trying to hit the ace.
Well, as soon as I released my drive I thought that it was on a nice line. I was right. It hit just off the top of the cage. 6" higher and it would have been in the chains. Unfortunately, it skipped long and left into a bush, leaving my lie directly behind the bush without a real shot at birdie.
So metal hit turns into par... bummer.
Next time, maybe.
