Lincoln Park Golf - 1st Day of the Baseball Season

On the 17th tee
Brad, Rick, me on a beautiful spring day at Lincoln Park. This is the first day of the baseball season, so I had to show my World Champion Chicago Cubs colors.

They started us off on the 9th tee, so the usual blogging sequence was a bit discombobulated.  As was the usual mid-round beer retrieval. I had to hit a hook off the first tee (11th hole) to be in position to retrieve the beers from the car parked across the road. We made it work.

Somewhere after the turn:

BK 38
MW 46
RZ 48

 Chipping contest for the extra beer on the 5th green. Rick won. 
Highlight was the 6th hole. Brad and I hit long fades (slices?) around the dogleg right, putting us in position for short approach shots. We both hit inside 6 feet. Here are the birdie putts:

I should have had it, but I'll never complain about a par.

7th Tee drives:

And the 19th hole with club sandwiches, a vegan quesadilla and a new beer discovery - Belgium Bump by Local Brewing Company - recommended by new bartender Yani.

It was a very good recommendation. Final scores:

BK - 80
MW - 93
RZ - 101

I believe this was my breakthrough round.
