I watched Glen Moresco hit one of the biggest
drives ever on the 15th. And yes we know it was
not of the back markers but Glen let on rip and
on the GPS it showed as a 260 metre drive.
His chip was nearly as long and then his chip
back was, well, let's say he didn't leave it short
and so to make amends he just chipped it in
and as he said, "Well, that's one way to get a
par." And of course we had to agree with that
Of course better yet that combined with him
and John Geyer playing some steady golf was
enough to win the match and the money.
