underdogs today, it was expected to be our last match, but I want to share and
remember why we played. No shame or disappointment
in losing to 2 elite level players that missed 1 putt and played flawless otherwise.
wished my 3i would have stayed up on H3 and the driver on H7, but those may
have only delayed the outcome another hole or two.
played to honor Casey, along with all those others that we have lost this past
that comes to mind, Lizard69, whom appeared to be one of the first players to
offer tips and tutorials in the early days and whose videos were still online when
I started playing. His presence has been
replaced by others today as the game too has changed. I particularly liked his tips on the
"draw" / "fade" which has also been debated in the forum.
the forum reminds me of another we won't forget, YJ - whom was a prolific
participant in the forum, and well known by many that dragged themselves into
the forum for tips.
are just the recent losses that come to mind but such losses were taken hard
especially on the club members they were so closely associated with, including those participating in this event.
recent but still remembered in TPC was Paul's brother - Andy - whom a starter
ball tourney is held each year.
importantly the memory of the generosity offered with the gift of golf. I
think those are some of the things I value most... there has still been a community trying to help one another - heaven
forbid we ever forget that.
After all, it is the loyal active community members that has sustained WGT all this time.
A special thanks to my partner for
this event - Bluto346 - a hidden gem I dug out of the coin rooms and have
enjoyed getting to know over time! He is a competitor and fighter and I know he can be hard on himself for 1 or 2 mistakes - but his partner didn't make it easy on him either. I didn't count how many putts were conceded after his stellar approaches! I would partner with him anytime, again thanks for the journey!
we couldn’t make it a better match but that’s WGT… some days you get the breaks
and some days you make mistakes and nothing can fix those – not even helping
Today, we just got outplayed by a couple elite level players! Well done and well played.
