I played golf today with a guy who told me about the club championship this past summer. I knew who won but I didn't know the details.
The young guy who won the club championship just graduated college and nearly qualified for the U.S. Open. (He was first alternate.) He plans to turn pro and is looking for sponsors.
His opponent in the club championship final was a middle-aged guy who played #1 for Clemson. The final was 36 holes. (Everything is scratch, no strokes given.)
"Clemson" shot even par in the opening round, a tidy 72. He was 11 down. That's right, you read 11 DOWN.
"Young guy who plans to turn pro" fired an opening round 61. It was over about six holes into the second 18.
I think if "young guy" decides to play next year we should just hand him the trophy.
