Old Pals Match; Super Seniors vs Youngsters


Recommended Posts

Just had a very interesting golf match in our Old Pals single elimination tournament. My partner and I are 71 with a 14 handicap and made it through the qualifier in the middle of the pack. Our first match we were against two 30 y/O’s with a 1 and 3 handicap. We stayed to our game plan and were 4 holes up after 12 and feeling good. The youngsters picked away and used their length and club speed to their advantage. On the 17th they both drove a small green 280y away in a valley with creek in front. One was 8’ away and just missed eagle. I think the old bodies were taking they toll and the youngsters were strong. They tied match on 18 and took their first lead on 19 for the win. I was disappointed but enjoyed the entertainment of seeing what high swing speed can do to a ball flight. I started at 51 and never experience that type of distance. 
Time is running short but there always is next year!

Seasoned does sound better than super senior!
What I like about golf is if you start late you can continue to improve and compensate for a trending slower swing speed.

Congrats, that's nothing to be ashamed of. I definitely know the feeling of disappointment but you should be more than proud of yourself.
