A beautiful, clear, nearly cloudless day, with relatively low humidity and mild temperatures. The course remains in excellent condition.
Today we had five participants: four members and one friend, Ralph. We played our regular skins game from the blue tees, except for Leo and Ralph, who played from the white tees.
Brian started off very hot, and won a plurality of the skins on the front nine, including garnering a closest skin on hole 3. At the turn he had 20 points and five skins. His closest competitor, Ralph, had two skins and 17 points. Everyone else had one or zero skins, and were tied at 13 stableford points. No one hit the green on hole 7, and hole 9 carried over to hole 10. Who could stop Brian from rolling to victory?
Brian could, apparently, with some help from 5Points. On the back nine, 5Points and Brian switched roles. Brian managed only 13 points on the back nine, and only one more skin (for stableford runner-up). What is it about the number 13? Ralph also scored 13 points on the back nine, meaning everyone had a nine-hole round of 13 stableford points, either on the front or the back.
5Points parred 10, then double-bogied 11 and 12. But then he reeled off four straight bogies for 3 points each, and then topped that by parring 17 (winning a triple-skin closest prize along the way) and parring 18, for 25 points and a gross 44 on the back nine, his lowest nine-hole round in months. he won a total of 13 skins and
Ralph bought the drinks after the round, as this is his last round before returning to Hawaii until next year. It was great playing with you, Ralph! Thanks for joining us! We look forward to having you back with us when you return.
