Jack Widger PGA Professional Congratulates Dan Smith on setting a new Elkdale Country Club course record 9 under par 61. Dan shot the record setting round during the Norton Smith Hardwoods Elkdale Country Club Two Man Best Ball tournament Wednesday August 14, 2013.
Dan's round included two eagle on holes #2 and #3, and five birdies on holes 4,7,12,17 and 18. He hit 16 of 18 greens in regulation, 7 of 14 fairways and had 27 putts.

#2 - Driver 292 yards, flew on the green 15 feet from the pin and made the putt for eagle.

#4 - Hole was set up at 169 yards, 6 iron 3'1" away and made the putt for birdie.
#5 - Driver 330 yards hit the faiway, hit a 56 degree wedge 80 yards on the green 35 feet away and two putted for par.
#6 - Driver 285 yards in the fairway, hit his first bad shot of the day well right of the green, pitched on from 30 yards right of green 2 feet from the pin and made the putt to save par.
#7 - Driver 278 yards in the fairway, 60 degree wedge from 40 yards on the green two 3 feet and made the putt for birdie.
#8 - Driver 291 yards missed the fairway, hit the green from 65 yards with a 56 degree wedge to 20 feet and two putted for par.

#13 - Drive 282 yards missed the fairway right, hit the green with a 60 degree wedge from 58 yards and two putted for par from 10 feet.
#14 - Driver pulled left and hit a tree, the ball droped down under the tree at 160 yards from the green, hit and 8 iron on the green 20 feet away and two putted for par.
#15 - Driver just missed the fairway, hit a 3 hybrid to the 100 yard mark and then hit a 56 degree wedge 15 feet away on the green and two putted for par.
#16 - Tee was set back to 189 yards, hit a 5 iron on the green to 15 feet and two putted for par.
#17 - Driver 316 yards in the fairway, hit the green from 30 yards out to 3 feet and made the putt.
#18 - Driver 305 yards in the fairway, hit the green to 8 feet and made the putt.
Impressive to any golfer, was Dan with the knowledge of being 7 under standing on the 17th tee knowing two pars will tie the course record and on birdie would break it, most golfers would fold under the pressure, but Dan was able to fight off any such demons and birdie the last two holes.
WAY TO GO DAN !!!!!
