Our penultimate event has just been completed. When we were scheduling for the Bridges, internally we were thinking we might only get like 8 players because of the love/hate (mostly hate) perception of this course. Who knew we would fill at 16 players with a 2 person waitlist!
It was a cooler than average day, but bright and challenging.
Things got off to an interesting start as Peter LaB of group 4 had a natural birdie on hole 1, equating to a net double eagle!! Craziness.
Then somewhere along the way, group 2 lost track of group 1 and group 1 started using the golf course as a driving range waiting for them.
Two players in group 3 started hydration early. And often. And then things got kind of fuzzy. And that’s why it’s a short summary.
But as mentioned before, I have become a big fan of Stableford scoring. No more stress of grinding over a putt for double bogey. Anything over a net bogey is 0 points. You can just pick it up. This can also speed up play. The Modified Stableford scoring system only rewards good scores without penalizing bad ones.
