Pines 10

Par 5, 460 yards, dogleg right

After a hole that was set up well for my lefty slice, here's one that isn't.

I land a 3-iron in the fairway but shallow, leaving me a blind approach around the trees at the bend of the fairway. I take 3-wood and then 8-iron and chip on with a sand wedge to set up an 18-foot uphill par putt with a slight leftward break. My putting has been nearly clueless all day so I strike it solid and hope. It bends toward the hole but is veering left. About one foot from the cup it hits a spike mark that diverts it straight into the hole. My fortunes have turned 180 degrees. Three straight pars; another 5.
