Normally I have lot of time for Finegan and he certainly went with high expectations “I could scarcely wait to get to the 1st tee. Alas, I walked off the 9th green profoundly disappointed. Four holes are prosaic, 1, 4, 7 & 9.” I think the clue is he apparently only played it once. My guess is he scored badly couldn’t see why and moved on in a bad mood.
Thanks for doing this photo thread. Tony Muldoon and I had talked about the need for one, and you beat him to it.
TuckyI too thought playing short on the 5th may pay dividends in the long run, but my idea of short is the front of the green. My first go was an indifferent 8 iron to the front which left a tricky putt up the steep slope. My second go I decided this wasn't a bad play. I flushed the same 8 iron (Neil wouldn't let me borrow his) to nearly pin high. It was obviously a lucky mistake because aiming for that back section of the green is really a hopeless play for someone of my rather limited abilities. No matter what one chooses to do off the tee, recovering from short of the putting surface is easier than being pin high left or right. Great, great hole.Ciao
James,I never claimed to be the most observant guy around! Your tour was active for about three days and reappeared for a couple more. Mark's, too, was active for about three days. It's not unusual for me to go without checking the site for a a few days, and when I do I rarely look at more than the first page. When people complain about off-topic threads or too many on a single subject, I understand as it can lead to threads like Mark's and yours disappearing too soon. Hopefully those checking out this one will go to the other tours and see the additional photos and comments.
