As usual, #7 Lakes brought the field to its knees playing a stroke and a half over par. But for some reason, #10 played tougher than usual. Golfers averaged 5.25 on a usually mid-difficulty hole. The pin was back, but it was still on the green.
The database now has over 1,200 holes played and some patterns are emerging. The field is consistently averaging about one birdie in every twenty holes. Since tallying cards began June 1st, only two holes have not been birdied, #5 Lakes and #8 Lakes. #8 Lakes is understandable; it’s frequently into the wind and it’s a tough green to hit, even with its easier pin placements. But no birdies on #5 Lakes? That’s not a tough hole. Surely, that can’t stand up for long.
