Fighting Joe

>> April 23, 2007

I went to a wedding in Alabama this past weekend and had a chance to play an amazingly hard golf course - rated in the top 30 I believe by Golf Digest in fact. Alabama's Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail features the Shoals - Fighting Joe Golf Course. We didn't play from the blacks (I suck, remember!) which is 8,092 yards long. Instead we played from the white tees which are a mere 6,154 yards long - and quite difficult.

Playing with rental clubs is always interesting, but the King Cobra's they gave me where in good shape and quite similar in feel to my Taylormade Irons. The driver however had a graphite shaft, and I never really did manage to get a feel for it.

I played OK - shot a 105 in total thanks to losing a ton of balls and taking penalties left and right. If I had been able to keep my drives in play, I'm sure I would have broken 100, or come close.

I did manage to stun the guy I was playing with by sinking a 30 foot putt for a bogey (whew), and even managed to par the 10th hole.

The guy I played with shot an 89 and really, really picked it up on the back 9 shooting +3. Unreal.
