Santa Clara County Amateur at San Jose CC- First rd results

The 2010 event is off and running with some pretty good scoring on a course that didn’t play all that easy. Ever since I started playing in this event some 20 years ago the theme has never changed, KEEP THE BALL BELOW THE HOLE. The trick is also to make sure you don’t have 3-5 foot comeback putts that are downhill.

The field is stacked with great college and veteran players, and with 36 holes tomorrow, there are 20+ guys that could still win the event. Having actually lost this event on the 54th hole 3 times in the past, I can only advise those in the hunt come the final 9 holes to remain PATIENT!!

For some reason the last 9 holes play very tough after having already played 27 holes, it seems the greens get firmer and faster as the day progresses. This event is deep in history with some famous names on the trophy!

I’ll be back tomorrow with more photos and the final results

  1. Randy: As a fellow face-on putter, I would love to compare notes with you and watch you putt. Does “other” have a website? I was using a reverse-shafted putter from puttmagic.com, but didn’t like the weighting and found I was pulling putts. Did you have trouble with alignment when putting conventionally; right eye dominant?As an amateurgolf.com member, please enter me in the “round at Olympic with Randy and Pete” sweepstakes. Playing between 9-11 h’cap. Won Pete’s net division at The Golf Club in Fallbrook. Good luck in future events. I’ll catch up with you one day.
