So, like I said in the previous blog post I went down to Columbus with Ziggy Bierekoven and Geoff Bennett for the Columbus Ice Bowl at the Hambrick Memorial Course at Hoover. It was a solid event, but the real fun was the night before the tournament to be honest. We stayed at Jordan Rauch's place. We played putting games in the basement nonstop. Jordan has an area that allows for up to 45 foot putts, I think the longest we bothered with were 35 footers. We did everything weird we could, from putts on our back to behind the back. Everything but lefty forehand putts which Jordan wouldn't let me do.
But the best part was the last 30-45 minutes. We were each taking 3 putters and going 3 points for make, 1 point for basket, -1 for hitting walls. Ziggy decided to turn off all of the lights and do it in pitch darkness. We were all annoyed and then Ziggy canned 2 of 3 and we couldn't let him show us up. We started hitting them and setting it up so the person that scored the lowest had to go stand next to the basket for the next set.
Jordan was never not the lowest score.
I was only the lowest score, tied with him, once. After we turned on the lights for his turn through the putting to give him a handicap. Ziggy proceeded to throw one off of my shoulder, and bank one off of my arm into the basket in pitch darkness. Ziggy could drop to advanced and win tournaments blindfolded, I'm convinced of it. He shoots lights out with the lights out. Disgusting. I think that the only time he went to stand up there was after he decided to run three putts in a row off of Jordan.
So yeah, good times.
