August 9, 2013 Broadlands Golf Course in Broomfield, CO

I recently started a habit of walking 9 holes at the crack of dawn. I can get around the back 9 in an hour 15 minutes and still get to work on time. Normally, there is no one in sight. On this day, it just so happened that the greenskeeper was mowing the green on number 14, when I walked to the tee box, 117 yards from the pin. He pulled over to the side to watch me take aim with my wedge at the back left pin, just behind the sand and bump on the front. I lost sight of the ball as it landed over the bump, only to hear the greenskeeper let out a whoop and jump from his mower. His high five greeting at the hole sealed a perfect start to the day.
