Today I made two birdies playing golf.
The first was on hole no. 1. I hit a 345 yard tee shot that faded right around a dogleg right into the middle of the fairway. I was 45 yards from the pin when I hit a soft L-wedge to within 8 feet of the hole. I made the uphill put for birdie.
The second birdie came on hole no. 16, a short par 4. My tee shot had to get up fast, as I took a shortcut to the hole. Most people hit a short iron or a fairway wood off of the tee, but I took a risk today and tried to blast a driver over the trees. It worked. My tee shot flew approximately 280 yards, landing on the fringe at the front of the green. I hit a 9-iron chip shot 60 feet up the slope of the green. The ball stopped two feet away from the cup. I made the short put to record my second and last birdie of the day.
