Fourth place

| Golf | 0 Comments

I played exceptionally well in the Davilex Open 2012 at the Liemeer golf course, shooting a stellar round of 37+39=76. In the end I came in at fourth place, not bad for a field of seventy low-handicap players from all over Holland.

If it wasn't for that out-of-bounds ball (double-bogie) and those two birdie putts I just lipped out, I would have tied for first. Well, I did have a couple lucky shots inbetween and a super long 30 foot birdie putt, so I cannot complain. Only four over for the day from the back championship tees is something to be proud of.

Proud winner!

I was hitting the ball very well, slamming a couple screaming drives way out there and my short to medium play was fairly accurate. It's a great feeling knowing that you can still play great golf once in awhile, makes all those frustrating rounds worth the hassle. The last two holes were very nerve-racking: bogie, par (long putt).

I was sitting in the club-house afterwards with only two flights to go and had the best finishing score so far. Feeling cocky, I already had my speech prepared in my head, including the Dutch jokes I'd make to the laughing crowd, thinking that I'd come in first place. Wishful thinking. Counting down from tenth place, six people before me, and then the lucky fourth place went to me.

It was a good day which I'll remember for a long time. Here's the official tournament video, see if you can find me.
