Played Eagle Ridge on Saturday with Donna, John and Bob in an Oracle Golf Club Event. This was the third OGC tournament this year, but the first I was able to attend. These are low-key tournaments hosted at a variety of courses around the Bay Area. Weather was great, course was pretty (if still a little wet and shaggy), the golf - not so much.
Everyone plays their own ball, but it's scored as a team competition based on the two net best balls of the foursome. I've long held the theory that the optimal foursome in this format is one single-digit handicap ringer (John), one playing from the red tees (Donna), and two high handicappers (me and Bob). Another perfectly good theory shot to hell. Some pics from the day:
|John on the tee
Bob and Donna on the tee
|MW on the tee.
|Bob in the grass.
|Bob in the sand.
|Why did Bob cross the road?
|Bob in the cabbage.
Bob wanted me to show you this pic of his drive, which would be the longest drive if Bob was in the fairway. However...
|Bob is in the rough.
|At the turn - The scorecard is mercifully blurred.
... But the day was not a total loss...
... since Bob brought good beer and cigars. So the score was irrelevant.
