Greatest Golf Moment
I often try and reflect on what my greatest golf moment has been, but I try to think what made everyone the most content. I would have to say when our team at Fresno State won the WAC Title in Houston, Texas. I wasn't playing the greatest the entire tournament, but somehow I willed a decent round on the final day. The hole was a dogleg left par 5, water all along the left hand side and water surrounding the left side of the green and behind the green. The pin was tucked front right, so there was no option to bail out right and make birdie. I knew I wasn't hitting it great, but I finally hit a drive in the fairway and had a great look at the pin from 197 yards out. I pulled out 6 iron and definitely had some nerves going, but I visualized the shot and trusted my swing. I hit my 6 iron to 3 feet and made the putt for eagle!! After finishing the round our team was waiting for the final groups to finish up. Our coach made us well aware that it was going to be very close! After the last few groups finished, the scorers totaled up the final scores and we won the championship by a single shot!
