19th George L. Coleman Invitational 2010 – 36 hole results

the second shot into #1

There are few golfing experiences quite like playing at Seminole in Juno Beach Fl. where for 19 years fortunate amateurs have had the pleasure to play this awesome course in quite unique conditions. When you gather 80 of the best amateurs in the country and play a 6,787 yard course in light winds you would expect some low scores…..not at Seminole. Again like Pine Valley, words do little justice to just how accurate you need to be while playing Seminole.

There will be times when you think you’ve hit the perfect shot (even a sand wedge from 60 yards) only to watch your shot roll off the side of a green into a very deep green side bunker. The slope at Seminole is 139 with a73.6 rating, but again this is a very tough test of golf, both mentally and physically.

My round on day one was highlighted with a near hole in one on the 5th hole where my 6 iron shot hit the pin dead square (as reported by Bryon Norton who watched it from the 6th tee box) the ball ended hanging over the lip for a nice 2. I wasted many shots over this round where I had trouble on several occasions off the tee, especially on the par 5 ninth hole where I hit my tee shot in the hazard right followed by another shot after a drop into the hazard again for a smooth 7. Today in round two my back was locked up and I knew I would be in for a tough round, despite the lone highlight on 18 with a birdie 3.

Tim Jackson (US Senior Open leader after 36 holes and low amateur) is leading after 36 holes with a 2 under total of 142, and Buddy Marucci leads the senior division with a great 1st round of 67 followed up with a 74 for a 141 total. The third and final round should be very competitive and a lot of fun on these super smooth and brilliantly quick putting complexes!

I’ll have pictures of all 18 holes in a following post along with the rest of Pine Valley.

Thanks for staying tuned!
