Course Record 61!!

19 February 2005

Mike Karl has always threatened to do something like this, and while we can bemoan the missed opportunities, 61 is an awesome score.  Going out in an 8 under 28 set the platform on the front 9, and while 3 birdies in the back 9 may be a little disappointing, keeping the concentration up for the full round is a real mission on these hot summers days, and with no dropped shots on the way round ... what can you say ... Well done Kooz!

The birdies;

  • The 2nd, a 334m par 4
  • The 4th, a 432m par 5 (Wedge into the green to 6 feet, missed eagle putt - Doh!!)
  • The 7th, a 302m par 4 (Driver to 7 feet, missed eagle putt - another Doh!!)
  • The 8th, a 164m par 3
  • The 11th, a 332m par 4
  • The 12th, a 469m par 5
  • The 18th, a 273m par 4 (Driver to 10 feet, missed eagle putt 2 inches short - final Doh!!)

The Eagles

  • The 6th, a 314m par 4  - Driver to 4 feet - got putt - yeah babieee!!
  • The 9th, a 479m par 5 - Drive of about 300m winning the longest drive!! 7 iron in from the fairway to 4 feet, tigerish putt down hill across gnarly break at the back of the green ... Yeah babieee again!!

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how you score an 11 under 61 for a nett 61!!
