It is rare that I get the opportunity to play in a disc golf
tournament, especially with Debbie as my partner, so I was very
much looking forward to this event. I also wanted to play well
(as anyone would in any tournament), but particularly so as Debbie
& I haven't had the best of rounds as disc golf partners in
the past (Inevitably, we would both throw good shots at the same
time and bad shots at the same time).
So all I wanted in this tournament was for Debbie & I to
play well together and have fun in a mixed doubles event on our
home course... and that is just what we got! We also managed to
come in 2nd place, but that was a far distant concern compared
to playing well.
Coming in 2nd behind MJ wasn't surprising. What did surprise
me most during the day was that our two rounds felt so diffierent
and ended up so similar. We both felt we played better the first
round, and nearly every chosen lie of every hole was substantially
different between the two rounds, yet the scores were nearly identical.
In both rounds we had 4 birdies and 14 pars. Even 3 of the 4 birdies
were on the same holes (5,9,11). So the ONLY difference score-wise
in the 2 rounds was #4 & #6 where we had a birdie one round
a a par on the other).
We were both most proud of playing an entire tournament (2 rounds)
with no bogeys! Sure, it was captain's choice, but this was also
2 rounds at Hornet's Nest. No one else in our division (or most
divisions) came close to accomplishing this feat. We had many
"close calls", but we always found a way to avoid the
Bob and I were partners for this event and it just happens to
have been at our home course of Hornet's Nest! I am happy that
we came in 2nd, but I am most proud to say that in 2 rounds we
did not have any hole less than par. That's cool!
Bob nailed some really big putts. I am so proud to have him as
a disc golf partner and a husband. He's the best!
