Six from the Champions Tour and 3 more Tour Vets hit the links at Mary Munford in a quest for the elusive F3 Mudgear brand Green Jacket in nearly perfect 70ish and sunny conditions. EF planted the flagstick. Here’s how it went down.

A Tradition Unlike Any Other made a triumphant return after a bit of a hiatus. And it very much felt like a reunion of sorts. Lots of long-time F3 RVA PAX on the course today at MM Country Club. Seems the PAX had a pretty good idea of what was to come as we teed off at 0530, though some still do not grasp the repetitions of 9, 18, 72, etc. Unlike the pros who warm up at the range, YHC prefers to warm up with the cart girl and jump right in on the 1st tee box, thus straight to Merkins. Bodos snuck past security and joined the field as it was crossing the Hogan Bridge on 12. The Drive, Chip, Putt competition went about as well as women trying to get a tee time at Augusta National. YHC is pretty certain the PAX was about 6 over through 4, but we’ll just put down Par on the old scorecard. It was the short game, and the long game that let the PAX down. As FICO struggled to get up and down on hole number 4, TYA promised YHC something of a reward if a snowman was carded. With that threat, YHC instinctively yelled GET IN THE HOLE! As we go forth let’s remember that 2 wrongs don’t make a right, but 3 rights make a left. May the PAX’s days be filled with Eagles and Birdies. Until next year…
Prayers – Speedy and thorough healing for our Gloom brother
A great backblast deserves a comment! Well Q’d and written!
I want to go back to the green with a Titleist instead of that Dunlop thing you brought for another shot at the birdie!
Kicking myself for missing this epic event. I guess I don’t even have a good excuse like Tiger could have had.
