The Bad Little Nine

This post is by Howard Lindzon from Howard Lindzon

My friend Mike Zimmerman invited me to play in the Scottsdale National member guest weekend tournament.

You do NOT turn that down.

So here I am. One of the excellent perks of Scottsdale National are the fantastic casitas so we are all sleeping on the grounds.

As always though, I am up at 5 am writing this blog.

I brought my bike with me thinking I would sneak out at 6-30 am for a few hours, but there is too much food and drink.

Yesterday was a practice round and also a qualifier on the ‘Bad Little Nine’, which I can only describe as evil. It is a 9 hole par 3 layout of devious short holes with tiny crazy sloped greens.

The 9th has a green the size of a kitchen table.

If you look closely you can see my ball inches from the hole on the 9th for a tap in.
