With the summer heat finally dissipating, it was a cool and gorgeous morning. Here’s a shot from the 5th fairway at the Mt. Si Golf Course.
On the way to the course, the elk were a grazing in the morning fog:
Geez! Golf is a weird game. I played 1,320 rounds of golf and recorded exactly one eagle. I got my second one on August 24. Today I scored by third, and second in ten days. This time at the 14th hole at Mt. Si, the one with the elevated green so I didn’t get to see the ball go into the hole. In fact, we looked around the green for about five minutes until I decided to look there. So I had one eagle in my first 23,000 or so holes and now two in the last 72.
My handicap index eked down to 11.8, lowest since August of 2013.
I recorded my second eagle ever in over 1,300 rounds of golf. In the midst of a stellar one-over par 37 on the back nine at Mt. Si, I one-hopped in a sand wedge from about seventy yards on the par-four 15th hole.
My USGA handicap came in a 12.2 today, the lowest since October of 2013.
I spent Tuesday and Wednesday at Bandon Dunes, playing 36 holes each day. I played OK on the first day, recording my best score ever on Pacific Dunes (85). On Wednesday I was kind of wiped out from a restless night’s sleep and slow play and didn’t do well at all. However, the scenery was as dramatic as ever, even with mostly overcast skies.
