The goal has always been long and straight! But since I can no longer hit them long, hopefully straighter could be achieved more than occasionally?

Here is a breakdown of how the match between LOTRGOLFER48 and I went down.
Barona Creek Golf Club 12:10 80º 5-10mph winds
Gold Tee Handicaps- LOTR .6 handicap (CH1) Mpisarski 12 handicap (CH14) so MP getting 13 indicated below by *

Hole 1*- MP pull hooks drive into left rough followed by a topped layup. LOTR right down Broadway. Both manage to get to GIR but a 3 put by mp halves the hole 6-5-
Even

Hole 2- Both players smash drives down the middle. LOTR hits the green but has about 15-20 on glass greens. MP sticks it to 3 feet some how and makes birdie. LOTR 2 putts for par.
MP1up

Hole 3*- The worst par three on the planet because its impossible to hold the green. MP hits center of the green and the ball rolls off the right edge LOTR hits center of green and rolls of the back. I putt from off the green leaving the ball 2 inches for and easy par. LOTR flubs his chip and makes bogey
MP2up

Hole 4*- I go exploring in the deep rough/brush/dirt¯\_(?)_/¯ after finding the tee shot i hook a 7 back into deeper rough and lose the ball. LOTR stays safe and wins the hole 4 to 6
MP1up

Hole 5* MP hit green in reg with a 2 putt par LOTR misses gir and 2 putt bogey
MP2up

Hole 6* Both players make the green in reg and par with 2 putts but mp wins with a stroke.
MP3up

Hole 7 LOTR misses green but makes a good chip for tap in par. MP hits green and has 20' but decided to 3 putt when my second putt was a 2 footer with 3 feet of break
MP2up

Hole 8* MP hits the trap on his drive LOTR shorter in the fairway miss hits his approach. MP trying to just get out of the trap and land 10-20 yards short of the green crushed it on the green only to roll just onto the fringe. LOTR with a 3 putt and MP with a 2 putt to win 5 to 6
MP3up -

Hole 9* LOTR makes a great birdie only to be spoiled by a par net bird by MP
MP3up

FRONT Nine goes to Mpisarski01 3&1


Wind is now picking up
Hole 10* both players make bogey after missing the green and 2 putting.
MP1up
MP4up


Hole 11* once again both players make a bogey with mps being the 3 putt variety.
MP2up
MP5up


Hole 12 MP tries to take the short cut but starts too far right and cant carry 350 yards of brush even with the wind haha. LOTR hits a spectacular shot into the green. MP decides to give him the hole because I would've had to drop back near the tee 230 yards away and didnt like his chances getting up and down from there.
MP1up
MP4up


Hole 13*- LOTR finds some deep rough but manages to get a good club on it for the layup. MP finds fairway and crushes a 4 iron from 210 only to bounce off rough and disappear into fescue never to be seen again. MP drops and almost holes the chip to make a par. LOTR also makes par but mp has a stroke.
MP2up
MP5up


Hole 14 A sometimes drivable par 4 315yards down wind. Both Matts drive into the greenside bunker. I barley get out and LOTR goes full Saddam and goes bunker to bunker. Both get on and make bogey for a halve.
MP2up
MP5up- wins overall 5&4


Hole 15*- I top my drive and go OB. Re-tee and hit fairway. LOTR is safe and sticks an approach close to make par. MP a 6
MP1up

Hole 16- another dumb green LOTR hits 15 feet short of pin only to roll off. I chunk my tee shot into front bunker. I become a gravedigger and cant get out of the same bunker to make a 5 to LOTR's 3
EVEN

Hole 17* (better lucky than good) I over draw my drive over the boundry fence for what looks like OB. I retee and hit fairway as does LOTR on his frist shot. We are driving down and I see my first shot right next to the fence somehow in play with a 3/4 swing available. I layup. LOTR hits a hybrid that he loses left but should be playable but after all 4 of us search we can find it. I hit gir and 2 putt par. LOTR makes a 7.
MP1up

Hole 18* LOTR goes right and misses approach. I just miss the front of the green. MP makes par LOTR makes 6
MP 2up


BACK Nine goes to MP 2UP

Overall Goes to MP 5&4


Playing with the 4 time GK cup champ is always scary and today I was a bit nervous playing him at a course I dont putt well at. Unfortunately Lotrgolfer48 wasnt on his game today shooting an 82 to my 87 but it was still a blast. Also joining us was Rat-Patrol and Gregholla which made for a great afternoon in warm weather which is a nice change to the last few round that were in the 50's here.

Congrats to Big Matt.

I hope this "emojis in the review" thing isn't a trend!

Matt fully deserved that win and the final score even feels closer than it should have been. He played pretty steady all day outside a couple wayward rives while I was mostly trying to figure out what golf is.

sbarajasjr (S) v. Nickesquire (N) @ Sedona Golf Resort (4/12/21)

Thanks to Sal for coordinating and setting up. Awesome scenery and the course is both fun and challenging. Nick was getting 3 strokes.

Hole 1: Short uphill par 4. S bombs drive, N in left rough. Both have some kind of wedge approach shot, N misses green short, S GIR. S quickly makes N attempting to grind for a par inconsequential by dropping a 15' birdie putt. S 1 up

Hole 2: Downhill par 3. S yanks tee shot well left into lake, N GIR and routine 2 putt par. AS

Hole 3: Short par 5 bending right off a very elevated tee. Both drove it long over the right fairway bunker to set up short iron approaches. N sorry 8I approach misses green, S (probably a wedge?) approach initially close but his ball takes a slope and ends up about 35'. N chips on to 8', S's eagle attempt up the hill about 6' short. In a sign of things to come, both miss makeable birdie putts and stomp to the next tee with routine pars that felt like bogeys after where our drives were. AS

Hole 4: Straight par 4. Both miss the fairway and the green and chip on for par attempts. This continued the if you can miss a putt, I can miss a shorter putt theme of the round. S managed to 2 putt for bogey, which beat the 3 putt double of N. S 1 up

Hole 5: Stroke hole, long uphill par 5. First hole the very deep rough came into play. N mediocre drive and 4I that both caught the rough were barely past S's monster drive, so we were basically playing up the hill even from that point on. S beat N in the hole by 1, but the stroke made it a push. S 1 up

Hole 6: Both hit decent drives on a straight par 4. S GIR, N misses green left. N chunks a chip, then chips on to 5'. S got a bad break when his iron rolled all the way to the back of the green, leaving about a 90' putt with probably 15' of break over a crest that he masterfully got inside 10'. S missed his par putt and Nick made the 5' putt to stay in the match. S 1 up

Hole 7: Medium length par 3. Both miss the green pin high, S in trap left, N in rough right. Both hit decent chips within makeable putt range, both miss their pars. S 1 up

Hole 8: Stroke hole, long par 4. Both miss the fairway left. Both hit decent shots from over 200, S in greenside trap, N in greenside rough. Both hit decent chips. S below the hole and a good 2 putt up the hill for bogey. N had what we both thought was a slick 15' downhill par putt. Left 2 putts in a row short, no way I leave that putt short twice if I'm trying. Stroke keeps the hole a halve. S 1 up

Hole 9: Uphill Par 5. Neither hit the fairway and S has some rough and trap challenges. N works up the fairway and even after flying a back pin on his approach makes bogey. AS

Appropriate the front 9 point was halved, because we were in agreement that neither player deserved to win a point. We both basically gave the other a hole and halved other holes we could have won by missing makeable putts.

Hole 10: Signature downhill par 3 with the red mountain as your backdrop. N yanks his tee shot well left, S in the greenside bunker. N provisional good shot to 20' on the fringe, which turned out to be in play after the first tee shot was found in an awesome houses rock garden. S takes 2 to get out of the trap, then 3 putts from distance after his sand shot took a slope and rolled farther and farther from the hole. N 2 putts from the fringe to win the hole. N 1 up

Hole 11: Tight, downhill par 4. Both players hit long, good drives, N GIR, S just on the back fringe. S up/down par, N 2 putt par. N 1 up

Hole 12: Dogleg left par 5. Both hit good drives. S 2nd hits a tree and caroms off into the red stakes area, then after a drop he has to pitch out sideways because of trees. Hole basically over as N in play with GIR and routine par. N 2 up

Hole 13: Both hit good drives in the par 4 fairway. Sal GIR and 2 putt par, N misses green and after a crappy chip does not come close to getting up/down. N 1 up

Hole 14: Medium length Par 3. S just long, N surveyed the red staked area for multiple shots and arrives on the green 2 shots too late. AS

Hole 15: Stroke hole, par 4 that the fairway slopes left toward a hazard. S drive finds the penalty area. N puts Driver back in bag and lays back with an iron off the tee. Playing conservatively with basically a 2 shot advantage, N almost gave away the hole even with a stroke. S stuck an iron approach and barely missed his putt to tie the hole. N 1 up

Hole 16: Both drive in left rough on a long, straight par 4 with a lake on the right. Both advance it but still in left rough. S misses green with pitch, then chips on. N pitches onto green but rolls to the back. Poor lag putts from both players. Poor 2nd putts from both players, both finally in the hole with 3 putts. N 2 up

Hole 17: Shorter, elevated par 3 with water on 3 sides. N in back bunker, S in lake, then on the back fringe in 3. S makes 5. With multiple putts to close out the match N finally makes a 12' putt when it's not really needed for a sandie. N 3 up

N wins the back 9 and overall point.

Hole 18: No longer mattered, but we both drove it within about 50 yards of the green on the short downhill risk/reward par 4 finishing hole. Did either of us make our birdies with 1/2 wedges into the green? That would be a nooooo...

Sal is one of my favorite GKers to golf with. If you cannot have fun with Sal, then the problem lies with you. Not great ball striking by either player, but not terrible either. Sal did bust quite a few drives that were long and in fairways. Sal can spank his SIM 2 Driver, his low piercing ball flight with 12-15 yards of draw plays well on lush fairways. Ball really flies @ 4,000' elevation in 80 degree temps, we both had challenges with distance control on approaches. Competitive match, we both were usually in play from tee to green and the hole was often decided by who screwed up less once on the green. It was you take this hole, no, I don't want it, you take it. Sal had 37 putts, Nick had 36 putts. Would have been better had either of us brought our "A" putting games. But we still had fun on a beautiful course in spite of the horror show that was our putting performances. This was a match either player could have won decisively with a hot putter or even by just avoiding all the 3 putts.
