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.

. . . The putting green
My name is Speedcat Hollydale. I started blogging a year ago, and mixed many different topics on my main page. It seemed about time to create a blog devoted exclusively to golf. In the past, readers were really not interested in my golf thoughts and stories, because I had not attracted a golf audience. With this page I am not interested in creating a volume of traffic, nor a huge page rank for searching key words. Rather, this will be my own spot for golf related posts.
The future of this blog will contain my own course reviews, golf news, and great pictures from the best courses in the world. Most of the following posts are from the past summer on the greens.
