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:

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.

Capturing these moments on film were definitely my best shots of the day, and ones that I will never forget, and never let Gavin forget. 

Great recap! Sounds like this year's challenge will be fun to follow. FWIW, I think I've three putted away my last two chances at Eagle. The only thing more frustrating than a 3-putt bogey, is a 3-putt par.

Assuming you mean happier for us spectators and not for the competitors!

After all the flak I got last year just because I happened to grow up in the greatest era of Boston Sports History we better not be going soft on these guys.  Plus we need to know how the new equipment performs under the pressure of tens of thousands of spies watchful eyes.

Who is going to crack under the pressure? *cough* #teamyags *cough*

And who will rise to the top to be crowned the new champ?! Yeah… this summer is going to be fun to follow along.  #TeamCHAD FTW!

I do hope we have some good member challenges this year. That was a lot of fun last year. @jlukes you’re the top target on my list! (That’s sort of a compliment.. I think)

If I didn’t know that 17 and 18 always eat my lunch I’d accuse myself for sandbagging. Shot a 92 with +9 on the last 3 holes. 18 is a narrow tee box chute to get out of and I always put one or two in the woods! 
 

the arrcos sensors worked really well today though so I figured out that issue!

I'm going to give my arccos sensors to one of my playing buddies who is absolutley awful at golf. Triple digits will be my baseline. Then the Cobra sticks will come in and suddenly I'll improve by 30+ shots. 

See y'all at the finish line, suckers!

I got to play on back to back days Friday and Saturday. Working with Arccos has been great so far. The Link might not catch a shot or two from the entire round, but it's easy to go in there and add a shot after I complete the hole or round. Learning a little better how to go back and edit the shots around the green, moving the flag to the correct position, etc.

One question I have for the people that use the Link. Mine died with 4 holes to play on Saturday. It was fully charged on Friday, I didn't charge it between my rounds on Friday and Saturday. Does the Link really die that fast for y'all? I didn't like having to use my big iphone 12 in my pocket the rest of the time.

No, mine has even been sitting in my bag for a week and still worked for a whole round. Silly question, but do you turn it off after rounds? Is it kept in a bag in the trunk of a car?

Yeah I remember turning it off after my first round. It did rain on us Friday at the end. I hope that had nothing to do with it. I’ll charge it up and see how it lasts this time around.

I have an extra charging cord in my car, and when I remember, I’ll plug it in while driving to the course, then while I’m on the range warming-up, usually about 60 min worth of charge, and has shown to be enough to cover a round.

@Brian A and @jlukes Last year I was sitting there waiting for the e-mail and text notifications… finally getting one… then realizing at delivery it was only PART of the order!  

I was sitting there looking at the tracking going wow they got it all in one box?  So you might have 3 or 4 “longest waits in golf” to go through.

For all the testers, have you needed to make any changes to your orders? Or does it seem like the shafts/grips/heads you all ordered are going to be available?

 

Cant wait for the competition to get rolling!
