You know how you once in a while feel that you can make this next shot, that it is the moment that you will make it right? I had one of those yesterday, playing the east course at GC Stolper Heide. I had a little trouble before on the par 4 7th, bad shot off the tee and a bad fairway shot, my third shot was 40m short of the hole and the bunker separated me from the green. I stood there, holding my lobwedge and thought “You can make this shot, 40m is acomfortable length for my lobwedge, the green is wet and the ball will bite, so I should be able to place the ball comfortably near the pin and then maybe save bogey.”
I adressed the ball, swung at it, it took of in a nice way, hit the green one meter in front of the pin, gently rolled towards it and …. fell! The shot that saved me par.
The nicest thing though was that, after three bad to mediocre shots, suddenly there I was and felt comfortable with the distance, club selection and the shot that I had to make. And what could have been double bogey turned into par. I’m sure this won’t happen every round, but it’s good to know this feeling, to have it in the back of your mind and remember it the next time I will be in such a situation.
