Moliets GC - what a cracker
Robert Trent-Jones is a genius. We played Moliets GC today and the score was (almost) irrelevant.
I've played many classic courses in my time: St Andrews, Muirfield, Turnberry, Gleneagles, Wentworth, Paris International and Druids Glen to name but a few.
Moliets ranks up there with them all. Part woodland, part links and wholly challenging. The golf today was worthy of such a test and it was a match that ebbed and flowed like the Atlantic Ocean we could see.
We were all square down the last. Steve had played well all day and decided to smack his driver down the middle, nail a 3 iron to 20 feet and lag his putt for a stone dead four that we couldn't equal.
Match lost 1 up and we go in to tomorrows rounds all square...it's perfectly set up for a fitting finale to what is proving to be one of the best tournaments in years.
