King of the Hill3 wrap-up

Well, that's another successful King of the Hill in the books. And if this does turn out to be the last one we run, what a way to go out. We had 3 aces yesterday! John Hart and Andy Allen hit hole 9 (Andy's first-ever ace) and Billy Dunne hit hole 2. There were also two deuces on hole 18. Wow!

It felt more like November than April out there with the wind and chilly temps, but at least the rain stayed away, right? Our streak continues

Good and Bad
I saw one golfer suffer two of the most evil roll-aways I've ever seen at Devens. No, it wasn't on hole 18, but 4 surprisingly. The poor guy went from a 3 to a 7, but kept on smiling. :)

Counteracting that badness, I saw another golfer throw a horrible drive off hole 16 that flipped early into the woods on the left but then somehow fought its way through the woods, caught an edge and rolled all the way down to within 10 ft of the basket. Crazy.

We had two golfers simply walk off the course and not finish Rd 2. Didn't even tell us they were leaving. I don't understand that...
