If this does ever happen in real life, by federal law/USGA rules, you have to play another 18 immediately following your unrecorded round. My wife doesn't like this rule, but I don't want to commit a crime so I press on. The couch and I are pretty good friends on golf days. 

I may have to use this law! I mean she wouldn’t want me to break the laws right?

Oh, I see someone is in for a lot of sleepless nights during this challenge. 

Assuming I sleep normally!

Since you’re on the other team, whatever you’re doing isn’t dumb at all! Keep up the good work!

You've left us hanging for about 10 hours now....

I hope it legitimately is something dumb and not something that really effects CCC5 for you.

My previous career best was an 88 (that I shot last week). On one hand, I’m playing the best golf of my life heading into the challenge. On the other hand, this is like the exact opposite of sandbagging..... 🤦‍♂️

Sorry to leave you hanging - had to deal with a vomiting cat when I got home. 
 

Anyways, now that I have the Arccos sensors on my current clubs any rounds I play are setting my baseline for the competition. I came into the challenge as a 20+ handicap. Then last night this happened:

Sounds like me coming into last year! I think of the 15 baseline rounds last year I shot under 80 like five times and only did it once during the challenge itself.

Awesome round though, and even with that 9 to record a 40/80 is fantastic!

That 9 was brutal too - if my approach shot was 5 yards longer I would have been looking at a birdie putt. Instead, I had to try and hit a flop shot out of the rough up onto the elevated green - but the heel of the club got caught and closed the face and I cleared the green into the bunker on the other side. So then it was a hard-packed bunker shot onto a narrow, downhill green that rolled right off and back down to where the last shot was. Finally got up on the green on my third try, and then 3-putted.

My mental game is definitely in a good place though - in the past that hole would have killed all my momentum, but instead I went -1 the rest of the way.

It was a warm but windy day in the northern reaches of Bellingham. @gavinski91 paced the green, tested the wind, felt the grain of the grass. This was after all, his first potential eagle. 

10 minutes prior he had no idea this moment was about to arrive. He was in the midst of the CCC#3 use every club in your bag before you could use the same one again challenge. He had strategized for this upcoming par 5 and had driver available. A well hit tee shot with a helping wind gave him a real opportunity at reaching in 2. An opportunity that he quickly seized with a well struck approach that left about 20' for eagle. 

Now, on the green, an eagle truly within grasp he focused on the putt like a magnifying glass on an ant. He took aim and struck the ball pure, on pace and on line:

SmartSelect_20210603-153735_Gallery.jpg.e00c60e1b3ec1fa4604b58796203800d.jpg

 

With the arrogance of a Greek god he started walking it in as it approached the cup.

SmartSelect_20210603-153755_Gallery.jpg.29c9e1b6155e3d3ee4be793f3e43289b.jpg

And as the ball slid past the hole on the high side, he knew he had failed. That life was not fair, that his efforts would not be rewarded, and that maybe had worn square toed golf shoes he would have made this putt. 
 
SmartSelect_20210603-153818_Gallery.jpg.6dbd1436d3bb6a13d65a76fd23ef62a0.jpg
 
Capturing there moments on film were definitely my best shots of the day, and ones that I will never forget, and never let Gavin forget. 

That's quite the yarn you spun! Awesome!

@gavinski91 - I would be laughing if I couldn't relate.
