On our travels back to the East after the Big D in the Desert, Val and I played back to back tournaments in Kentucky. The second event being the Disc 'n Dat Bluegrass Open, one of my favorites due to the courses and the travel vicinity to my parents home in Ohio, an annual tournament that I used to play every year when I lived back home. It is also great to see some old friends that I have not seen in years, great time to catch up on some past DG stories.
We cruised down with the parents and led the caravan with our friends Chris Barbo, Rob Nitzsche and Mel Martin, down to Kentucky on Thursday. It gave us the whole day to practice both courses on Friday to prepare for the tournament. The first course was a past favorite, Banklick Woods, a course that I have not played in over 9 years, back when I won a huge Supertour there playing Advanced AM, great memories on that course. It has a great mix of open to wooded holes with some great elevation changes and a few holes with steep drop-offs with OB water past the basket. All in all a pretty solid course, on a course such as this there is a chance to shoot -24 with every hole being reachable by the majority of the field, a true birdie-fest. Not saying that it was a short course by any means, but there was a great potential to go really low if the putter was hot for a round or two.---------------------------------
