Fantastic round of golf with my men's club XDC. I was in the first group, and teed off first on hole 17. The club tourney had a closest to the pin contest on 17(which I won). It was a downhill shot so I chose my 9 iron, instead of my 8 iron for 150 yards. The ball came off the club beautifully, and just how I envisioned it. We were looking into the sun, so we couldn't see the ball go in the hole. We had to drive down to the green to confirm it went in. Then the high fives started, and cheers for free cocktails. What a thrill to achieve this milestone in my golfing career. Well worth the bar tab. : ) Thanks for letting me share my story. : ).
