Since taking up golf, I have been very lucky to win several bits & bobs.. this is mainly down to winning longest drive, nearest to pin etc. It has been a painful process and I guess I have spent far more money & effort to get them. I have had a few games wherein money was involved – but these have been mostly involved me in handing over money to someone.
My rookie luck came into play during the June Stablefords. Playing my first game with Mark Friend, I birdied the 2nd hole on Hoebridge. With that I was in the running for a payout from the 2-for-2 pot. The pot is for anyone who shoots a 2 on any hole (provided they have put £2 in the pot at the start of the game).
The payout amounted to £18!! I think I will have to keep my day job and tiger is unlikely to feel threatened any time soon. But this £18 definitely feels like a million dollars.
