Almost an eagle

| Golf

It's not very often in one's life to get on a long par five in two, let alone having the ball end up just ten feet away from the flag.

I powered my drive slightly to the left and my ball was cushioned nicely in the rough.

With an amazing low five wood shot which had a slight draw at the end, the ball flew at the flag, bounced in front of the green and rolled just past it and a little to the left.

My eagle putt slid just past the left side of the hole and then I missed my putt coming back : a three putt for par.

It's not very often in one's life to three putt for a par. Oh well, better luck next time.
