Hole # 12, par 4, White tees, 330 yards

I usually hate teeing off on golf holes that looks like hitting through a tunnel. Hole # 12 at Inglewood Golf is exactly that. From the white tees, you have a little utility house on your left and lots of bushes and shrubs to your right. A little further down, just across the cart part is a row of trees that forms a wall between you and the fairway. It is a dogleg left and to take advantage of the short hole, you have to blast your tee shot up the middle or over the trees.

Kevin, a scratch golfer and member at Inglewood used his new Taylormade RocketBallz 3-wood to hit a beautiful draw left of the trees. It was a pretty good shot as he landed past the barber pole and had less than 100 yards to the green. I hit driver and made it over the trees and onto the fairway. I too, had less than 100 yards to the green. I chose to hit my A wedge but pulled it slightly and ended up left of the green. Kevin would pop it on below the hole. It would be a close birdie for him when his ball would lip out. He settled for a par. I chipped on and settled with a bogey.

Kevin went on to scoring 72 while I came in at 91.
