I still can't believe it.
Golf Australia are promoting nine-hole golf to attract and retain time-poor people to the great game. I was fortunate to qualify to play at the inaugural promotional event.
|I practiced on the driving range with the pros! Unbelievable!|
After Jason Day made a birdie on the 18th on Saturday afternoon and play was finished for the day, club golfers from around Australia were poised to tee off on the back nine. When the siren sounded for a shotgun start we walked up to the tee blocks. It was over-whelming! But I actually came runner up in the women's comp. I'm still pinching myself.
|Jason Day made a birdie putt on the fifteen on Friday|
|Players on the par three fifteen. (I actually parred this hole when I played it!)|
|Jordan Spieth walking to the green on the second. I was sorry he wasn't able to be in the leading group.|
All in all, a great weekend, topped off by attending my friend Deb's 60th birthday party. Life is good.
