So Dexter and I are playing golf in Maui and for the most part, neither one of us was hitting the ball very well. As we got to the 16th hole we encountered a huge 633 yard par 5. Big, sweeping downhill hole and…they put both Dexter and my tees together. Meaning that we were going to play the hole straight up – no advantage for Dexter. I promptly told Dexter: "Dex, if you beat me on this hole, I will by you a new Zune".
Now that is not much of a bet, because I don’t get anything if I win, but I thought it would make the hole a little more exciting for Dexter. Here is what happened:
Andy: Huge drive down the right side, but the hole bends left. My ball runs out of room and disappears (lateral hazard)
Dex: Biggest drive of the day right down the middle
Andy: Take a drop and hit an amazing 3-wood. Perfect. But, we can’t find the ball. Turns out I hit it too well and the hole curved to the right before it landed. Dead – lateral hazard take another drop.
Dex: Hits it down the middle again
Dex: Hits it down the middle again (lying 3)
Andy: Take my drop, hit a perfect wedge, right over the green (mis-read the distance). Lying 5
Dex: Hits it on the front of the green (lying 4)
Andy: Chip short of the green (lying 6)
Dex: Long putt to the other side of the green (lying 5)
Andy: Chip on (lying 7)
Dex: Putt to a few inches of the hole, tap in for a 7
Andy: Hole already lost, putt near the hole, tap in for a 9.
Dex: "I get a new Zune"!!!!
