The Spring Fling was a Charlotte Club match play event. This
would be great practice for VTI which will be the week after.
Unfortunately there were no other ladies, so I had to play with
the am guys. That's fine. It makes me work harder. I won one and
lost twice. The first one I lost we went to the last hole. I played
Bruce, a 980 rated guy last and played the 9 holes tied and took
him 5 additional holes before I lost one more hole to him. I think
it's pretty good I took someone rated that high for that long.
I love match play.
We lined up a sitter so that I would be able to caddy for Debbie
during this event. It wasn't that she needed a caddy for this
particular event so much as that we needed to know if she could
play well with a caddy (unfamiliar with having one) before attempting
to do VTI the following weekend. The question was clearly answered
as she played very well, particularly in the final round.
Debbie played 32 holes in match play format and I believe she
only had 2 bogeys. There were probably 3-4 birdies, meaning most
everything was par, putting a lot of pressure on opponents to
play near perfect to win a hole, and mistake free to avoid losing
Each one of her matches went the full 9 holes and the final round
went to extra holes (14 total). It was great to see her compete
so well against such great male disc golfers.
