Mesquite Sports & Events Complex
This was my second PLDA event. I had a better game plan going in and made sure to score points in each round leading up to the Top 8. After that, I had to place in the top 2 each round to make it to the finals.
Wind was not a factor today. It was simply who could put balls in play and go long. It was about 100 degrees all day. 4 hours later, after tying Jeff Gavin for the second most points throughout the day, I was in the Semifinals with three world champions—Jeff Gavin, Eddie Fernandez, and David Mobley. With a long of 378 yards, I came up 17 yards short and finished 3rd to Jeff and Eddie.
The most memorable part of the event was traveling with my youngest son, Christian, and having him walk with me over the course of the 2-3 days. That's something I'll never forget.
My next event will be in Denver for the PLDA "Mile High Shootout" in June. Learning a lot.
