Sweet Golf – Where Have You Been All My Life

3rd hole at crook
On the second 9 at Royal Crook – effectively hole 12 – I duffed the tee shot maybe 50 yards then flew a 5 iron to the right of the green. But it hung left and dropped into the pond that forms when it rains hard. Took a drop from the place I played from and hit right out of trouble, about 80 yards way right of the pin with a 10m upslope in front of me and a 10m downslope in front of that. The green was another 10m uphill with a dry stone wall at the back. Hit a great 6 iron in and landed on the green then bounced over the wall out of bounds – great recovery shot but wrong club and ambitious for somoneone of my limited experience. But it flew well and I learned so much in one shot. Yep, golf has got me but I’m beginning to “feel” it and that makes it fun 🙂
