Round Played: with John Ellis and Sergio Meza –

Back-to-Back BIRDIES — Yeah I’ll brag –
On February 22nd 2015 I played the Kauai Lagoons course with Sally and her co-worker Sergio Meza. John Ellis from Lees Summit, Missouri joined us.
This day I decided to try another Driver. I was determined but it just wasn’t working. It pulled – it sliced – it dribbled down the fairway – finally I just threw up my hands in surrender and pulled out my 4-iron.
Using the 4-iron it became “take the 200 off the tee and finish the hole.” This both improved my mood and gave me time for pictures.
With my disposition repaired, I joined in the FUN Sergio and John were already having – we got into the picture thing.
On the 16th tee I made everyone stop for pictures. It really didn’t take much convincing, we were all having a good time.
We finished 16 with two pars and a birdie. Here are pictures of the par-guys. A group came up behind us and I didn’t get a picture of the birdie-boy.
Then we came to the par three 17th hole. With a slight Kona wind behind me I hit this green with a sand wedge – with the normal Trade wind blowing in your face this shot can require an 8-iron.
On the 18th tee we had the laugh of the day. Sergio absolutely crushed his drive right down the middle. But an extra ball fell out of his pocket during the swing.
Sally didn’t see his drive, but she heard it and looked over at the ball rolling across the tee box. She interrupted our cheering and said, “Guys, the ball is right here – it wasn’t a very good shot.”
This was another fun round – everyone walked off the course smiling with stories to tell. It was the way golf should be.
Come play golf with me.
