I nail the putt, I'm jazzed up. 18 is a 420 yard par 4, but with a creek that crosses. My adrenaline is pumping, so I crank a 3 iron 255 yards down the right side, have about 170 to the flag. I've got a helping wind, I hit a 9 iron left of the green. Hit a gorgeous chip up to 2 feet. Should have just gone up to and knocked it in. I marked it, let my buddy putt out, lined it up, putted it.
Missed it. Didn't even touch the hole. Just an absolute choke. Haven't broken par in probably 7 or 8 years. I'm still numb right now.
Sorry bout your luck Homer. That's rough. Keep playing well, you'll get there.
I played the absolute worse round I've played in the last 2 years.
In general I don't hit my driver. Off the tee, I can hit a 3 iron about 200 yards and straight which almost always leaves me in a better spot than trying to hit my driver and spraying it all over the course.
In the from about holes 14-17, I couldn't hit anything. I was picking my head up, hitting behind the ball, on top of the ball, couldn't do anything right.
On 18, I said "Screw it, I might as well hit driver," and unleashed the most frustrating 255 yard dead solid perfect drive I've ever hit. BAH! Even when I do right I do wrong.
