Late October in northwest Missouri. Temperature is going to be in the 70's, call the boss the night before and ask for vacation day.
Woke up the next morning early and wind is howling. All I could think was I should have not wasted a vacation day for this. Was I ever wrong.
Got to hole #6, pin is tucked back right behind the bunker, elevated green, 111 yards, wind was on my back and little left to right. Five people in our group. I hit what I thought was a perfect shot and knew it had a chance. Got to the green and saw 3 balls on and one in the bunker, I got very excited and walked to the cup,saw my ball. I think they heard me holler all the way to the clubhouse.It took me 35 years of playing. The only bad part was I could not see it go in the hole.My ball was a NXT Tour.
Thanks Titleist for making a fantastic ball. P.S. I am glad I did not take a sick day.
