We were greeting with about 4 inches of snow this morning, our first really wintery day. After so much mild weather over the past year plus it’s seems really cold.
I had originally planned to drive home last night but the weather forecast changed a bit making today look good for another round before trekking back north into the cold snap.
Back at the Bandon Dunes course, I repeated the pattern of the previous two days with a dreadful start but saved pars on three of the final six holes to record a 92, the fourth time I’ve shot that score here. Although I played pretty mediocre golf it was still a very pleasant two and a half days in perfect weather and fabulous views in every direction all day.
Here are a dozen photos from the trip.
Like yesterday, I struggled through the morning round on Bandon Dunes with a just awful 98: no “blow up” holes but an endless string of bogey, double bogey. The afternoon on Old Macdonald was much better starting off with a six-over-par 40 on the front nine. I was kind of worn out mid way through the last nine holes but managed a par on the 18th to get in at 89, my best score at Old Mac.
