|The 8th green at Carne (clubhouse to the right)|
photo of Tom Watson. The day was memorable for its bipolar weather -- sunny and calm on the front nine; heavy rain and gale force winds on the back. The round demanded my utmost concentration and stamina to complete a score for 18 holes and return unscathed to the clubhouse. Just magnificent. My scorecard mirrored the elements: 37-62=99. One stroke short of the century mark. A test of body and soul, complete with my one-handed save of the slightly-built Eric, who was almost blown off the cliff beside the 11th hole by a powerful gust. I was hooked.
