NicoZandberg vs Cynic13
An epic game to say the least. I missed my bird on the 1st, 1 down. On the 2nd Shane holes his apporach for an eagle - 2 down. Rattled I par the next two holes with terrible putts, to his birds - 4 holes down.
On the 5th I hole my approach for an eagle - 3 down. I get another back on the 8th with a bird. We halve 9 with bogeys (forgot how tough that hole can be). From there on in he matches me hole for hole, with some superb play. Still 2 down with 3 to play, and seems Im running out of holes, but then on the 16th I hold a 20+ foot putt to go 1 down. We both miss long eagles on 17.
On the last Im up first, and I need a big shot on a very tough approach to the back pin. I get lucky and its pin high, 3 foot from the hole. Shane is unlucky and hits the mount in front of the hole and it runs back. He narrowly misses a 40 odd foot putt, leaving me a very nervy 3.2ft curler which I hold. Extra holes.
On the first extra hole he really makes his first real blunder, coming up way short and 3 putting for a bogey. I hole my par for a 19th hole win for SEL.
Brilliant game, and a very nice guy.
** Just saw it counts as a draw - happy with that, and a fair outcome.
