On Friday, November 8, 2013, I was playing a round with my buddies at Bethpage State Park on the Red Course. I am very familiar with this fantastic facility on Long Island in New York. Over the past twenty plus years I have played each of the five courses many, many times, ps - I live five minutes away. Well on this day which was cold and windy, temps in the mid to low forties and winds gusting to twenty five miles per hour. We arrived at the 17th hole. My range finder told me that the pin was 144 yards away, normally an 8 iron. Hitting straight into the wind, I guessed that with the cold and the wind to deal with, I would try a 5 iron. Well that was a great guess. A solid hit and in it went. Yahoo!!!
