Not today, but yesterday while playing The Hunt at Deer Lakes near Pgh, hole 11 in the 2nd round bit me hard. Forget about the holes in the first round that I wish I could take back. I had a mediocre first round of a 69 on a par 66 from the white tees. As mentioned there were a few holes that I want back including the one where I put my drive 15-20 feet from the basket, and my putt was just an inch too low hitting the cage, falling to the ground and then rolling 60 feet down the slope into the woods with end result being a 4 when I should have had a 2. OK BAD break on that one.
However my 2nd round was going pretty well even with a double bogey on a par 3 already in the round. But I had 7 birds and hole 11 was the last hole of the round. All I needed to do was make a par 3 and I would be 3 under and probably finish in the top 3. No probelm as I parked it for a duece in the first round. The hole is a downhill wooded shot into a ravine with the basket about 50 feet up the other side, maybe 275 total. Before I tee, everyone is congratulating me on a great round even joking that I should just leave my bag at the tee and just carry my putter down the hill as we would be heading to HQ back up the hill. I tee up with the same disc I dueced it on taking the same line. I let her rip only to release my disc just a smidgen too soon and my disc goes right into the first tree not 30 feet from the tee and richochets left into the woods. Damn!! OK, maybe I can still par it if I have a line out of the woods. No such luck. Best I can do is throw a control shot through a small opening and get it back to the fairway. OK, I will get a 4 and still finish 2 down. I take my upshot and misjudge the distance and shoot past the basket by 30 feet. Double Damn!! I look at my putt and I have to putt back to the basket on a down hill slope. There is one tree in the way, but I can step off to the side and still get a clean look at the basket. I decide to go for it and get my 4, only to hit the chains off to the side and my disc falls to the ground about 20 feet past the pasket. Triple damn!!!! OK, sink this put and finish 1 down. It is now an uphill putt and I stare the basket down, take my shot only to have it bounce again off the chains and fall to the ground right next to the basket. I forget how many damns I have now but it was a triple bogey and I finished even and in 6th place where I could of, would of, should of finished in the top 3.
But I still had fun as it was a beautiful day and the group I played with was a fun bunch of guys.
