Blown Away

The Bryan Park Champions course is always a good test of golf. Even on relatively calm days, the course extracts all possible wind off Lake Townsend, which several holes border.

Yesterday was a crazy tough day to play at Champions. The airport officially recorded sustained winds of 30 mph and gusts of up to 38 mph. It was stronger than that on the lake, and at times it was almost impossible to stand in place. Lake Townsend was solid white caps, and I think surfing would have been possible.

I managed to shoot a 78 that I count as one of my best rounds of the year. I hope that I won't have to face wind like that again anytime soon.
