Played Friday night after work, trying to get in as many holes as I could before the rain arrived.
No. 8 at my course is a blind shot into the green. You have to hit it a little left as everything funnels right when it hits the ground.
Because it was into a good bit of fan, it was a 7-iron on this evening. When I hit it, I felt like it was going to be fine, but wasn’t 100 percent sure I got all of it. I figured it was probably going to be on the green, but wouldn’t have been shocked if it was a little short.
Walk over the hill to the blind green and didn’t see it anywhere. My playing partner asked if I thought it was over the back and I told him I didn’t think I hit it well enough for that. As I walked toward the right side of the green, I took a quick peek into the hole.
What did I see? This:
Yep, an eagle 2. I’d love to say that I saw the ball go in the hole or that I hit a high shot that spun back into the cup.
But I have no idea how it ended up in the hole. All I know is that I made a two.
Not going to complain about that.
