Fresh off a 3 day tournament in Montana and on my way back to Seattle, I popped in for a quick 18. With pars on the 1st 9 holes and a birdie on #10, I was looking for my 2nd bogey free round ever. That quickly came to an end on #13 when my par attempt hung up on the edge of the hole. The good news is that I was able to pair up with a couple of great pros from Coeur d'Alene Golf Club on the back nine.
