What a day in southern NY !!!!

Beacon is a short, technical course that makes good use of the hillside. Has some repetitive hole designs but I loved the birdie fest !! Fun round with Ian and Scott. Shot a 46 with Ian as my P and tied Kenji and Scott. Playoff CTP was hole 1 and my lefty partner sailed one down the fairway for the "W".

Lunch was meh but i stopped at a local store and scored a bottle of DFH 120. :obscene-drinkingbuddies:

FDR has gone thru some HUGE changes. Superstorm Sandy blazed a trail of destruction thru the park and left a mountain of debris. But with this came an opportunity for change and the locals(and WeDGE) took the ball and ran with it. Totally redesigned back 9 with multiple pin placements. They also placed some truely heinous pin positions on the front 9 to create a par 63 beast that has taken FDR up to the next level. I've always enjoyed FDR as it was but Newman and Co. were able to make it more challenging and fun. Once they're finished this course will be even more of a MUST PLAY than before. Kenji badgered me into a tag round and I reluctantly agreed. We played the back 9 first and my only hiccup was a 4 on 16 after crushing a drive thru the pinball fairway. Birdied the par 5 hole 18(yes they made it longer) to get within 1 stroke of Greg. Sank some key putts on the front 9 to tie Greg going into the last hole(#9) only to have the old guy drop his drive within 3 feet of the pin. :twisted:
