Another (Near) Triumph on the 15th

Documenting my birdie putt with Bob's Tree in the background.
Who knows why a bad golfer can reliably play bad golf, yet consistently beat one tough hole?

The par 3 15th is a blind tee shot to a dome green, protected by a sand trap and a ball eating tree (aka "Bob's Tree"). It's 134 yards on the card but usually plays more like 145 - a 7 iron for me. Today with a crossing/following wind, I hit a high 9 iron and the wind carried it 10 feet past. Not good enough for "closest to the hole" but enough to best my foursome.  And what about that putt?

So I got the par. I'm happy with that.
