Chris Vs. Steve 2009: Round 1 in pictures
Place: Rowley CC
Record: Steve 4-0-1 vs Chris 0-4-1
Round 1 of this most sacred of events is over, and here are some highlights.
8:30AM... What's better than a day at the links? Well, how about not one, not two, but THREE BMW driving snobs teeing it up together? Steve's X5, my buddy Josh's M5, and my 328, complete with obligatory coffee cup on the roof.
And Josh's as well.
The combatants. Josh, Steve and my other buddy Joe, who's playing golf for the second time in his life. He did a shitload better than Drew did.
The gladiators. Stevie The Gun and Quigley The Kidd. Steve's the odds on favorite, but after getting slaughtered the first 3 matches last season, I battled my way back to close the season out with a tie.
Steve tees it up on 1:
And unloads his second:
One of Steve's shots goes a bit off course:
As the match went on, the weather got nicer. Ended up being a gorgeous day.
A gorgeous day... For morning beers.
And some turkey. Gobble gobble.
Ever see someone execute a PIT Maneuver in a golf cart? I have mad skills. And this was pretty epic.
Steve on 7:
Me on 7. Form's not perfect, but my arms are straight and my head's down, and I was rewarded with a Par for my efforts!
Joe wasn't, but this course was in great shape.
The card through 8. Steve started off 2-0, but I battled back to 3-2. I couldn't win, but I could play to a tie.
Steve's second shot on 9:
Steve's third. I'm doomed at this point.
I go +2, and Steve Pars, giving him the match at 4-2, and bringing his record to 5-0-1. It's a long season, but I concede the victory on this day of days.
Not exactly epic scores anyway, but it's early in the season and honestly I'm happy to be shooting this well. New driver needs some work, but all in all, a kickass day out. Actually, so kickass that after Steve and Joe left, Josh and I played another 9.
The view from the clubhouse. Yeah, iced tea, but you try drinking a 12 pack before noon.
And of course.. The obligatory Shot O' Snobbery.
So our hero goes down in defeat yet again, but the war's not over!
Next time we play for Pinks.
I looked in my bag after the round.....yep, the beer was gone.
Rear Quarter Panel Bump and Spinout on Hole #7.
Beer at 8am
Turkeys on 6
Beer at 8:07am
The Sunflower God shitting on Chris' ball in the fairway.
Beer at various points from 8:20 to 11:30am.
Sunflower seed gunshot holes, Tupac Style, on Josh and Joe's Cart window.
Beating Chris once again. Will the Kidd ever win? Stay tuned.
