Fighting to stay in I found myself on the 16th tee at -4. Two birdies in the last 3 to qualify. On the 16th green in regulation, lip out putt, par. 17th, still alive but knowing tough to birdie out. Greenie off the tee, another lip out! MF! On to 18, all I need is an eagle. great wind, huge drive but the 3 iron sails way left. Pulled up my pants, hitched up my belt and pulled out the wedge on the green. Ding, boom, one bounce, stops short. No joy in Mudville. Made the putt for a 66.
So the Duffer walks off into the sunset of the 2021 Andyson Memorial with a tip of the cap to Dennis and a thank you to everyone who makes this tournament the fun it is. A reminder of why we play this game, fun and comradery.
Until next year, have fun and hit 'em straight,
