Even the putts were good, just didn't get many to drop on holes 3-17. Had a 60 foot big breaker Meadows #8 that hung on the lip. Best putt of my life and it didn't even go in.
I hate Meadows. We used to play Woodside and Meadows in the High School Golf Districts. I was a Jr at the time and coming off a pretty lackluster front nine, I think I was somewhere aroudn 4 over. I then proceeded to birdie two of the first 4 holes on the Meadows to get my score back down. Then came #5 (I believe) the uphill par 3 with woods trouble on the right. I think it was playing right around 190 yards and was up hill. That meant I had to hit my least favorite club in my bag. Combine that with about a 20 minute wait on the tee for the next group to clear the green. Well my tee ball went short and right into the woods. Next tee ball ended up short in the bunker. My bunker shot was bladed over the green and into the woods again. I carded an 8 and pretty much ended my (and our team's) chances at advancing to the State Finals. I think as a team we lost 10 strokes to par on that hole.
