Every once in a while you get a day that is not only perfect outside, but also perfect in every way. Add a good round of golf into that formula, and it is one in a million. I played well all day, and my only “problem hole” arrived on #12, a shorty par four. After a push to the right side of the green, I had a fairly easy pitch shot to the green that also needed to get under a bush limb. I hit what seemed to be a good shot, but it went too high … disaster and now hitting three to the green. This time I just needed an easy chip to get up and down, saving par. Long story short, this was my worst shot of the day as I found the ground before the ball. OK, time to re-group, make a two putt, and run to the next hole with a bogey, right? Nope, a 40 foot putt from the fringe flies straight into ( dives into is more accurate ) the hole for the ugliest par in the history of man.
This is just how the entire round seemed to go, as I effortlessly made my way to the clubhouse with a final score of 73. I always love a golf day, but this one was like a day in heaven. My list of favorite rounds is a long one, and carry so many wonderful memories. To rate this day in comparison, I think at the very least – this would make my TOP 20 list.

Hollydale Golf Course Blow Out


One thing I have learned to be proficient at is hitting a high wedge from a tight or poor lie in the rough. I place the ball way back in my stance and beat straight down on the ball, with a mental image of driving it into the dirt. Of course, the opposite effect is the result. With this method you reduce thin shots and fliers

Playing November golf here in Minnesota is a gift. I played Hollydale Golf Course on Monday 11/16 with a warm 51 degree sun shining over frozen ponds. By the end of the round as the sun set on the horizon, the temperature had dropped to a cool 39 F.
Below are some photos from what may have been the most fun afternoon of the year. My score you ask? ….. 76. I think I played better than that number, by my short game let me down on the back nine.
