Golf in White Mountains of Arizona

Coach Zauner and the Head Coach, Michelle were on vacation last week at their summer retreat and out of the heat in the White Mountains of Arizona.

Last week Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday it was up to the mountains and relaxation. Torreon is a beautiful golf community in the White Mountains of Show Low, Arizona.

Pinon pines, cooler temperatures and 36 holes of golf on Torreon's beautiful private course.

This week was our member/guest golf tournament. So for the last couple days I was not blogging or kicking, Michelle and I were having fun in the cooler climate of the mountains.

Coach Zauner and his Fountain Hills neighbor, Marty Jessen won their flight by three stokes and moved on to the shoot out.

The secret to playing good tournament golf is putting. Drive for show and putt for dough. Me and my partner had three excellent days putting with the flat stick.

During our free time, Michelle and I took our mountain bikes for a quick spin around the hills and forest of Show Low, Arizona in Torreon.

Below was the first playoff hole on the Tower Course.

Torreon is known for it's beauty and fast greens. Below is a the Par 3-15th Hole on Tower.

During the Shoot Out I hit the golf shot of the weekend. It happen on the 3rd Hole, Tower Course which is about a 175 yard par three.

In the Shoot Out there is an alternate shot format and my partner hit a shot pin high but on the left side of the bunkers.

In the photo below, I hit a flop shot from where you see Michelle standing to about 6 inches of the hole for a tap in par.

I practice this flop shot a lot. However, in the pressure of the tournament I almost talked myself out of hitting the shot. However, I always tell my friends, "If your afraid go buy a dog!"

On the fourth and final playoff hole we were knocked out of the Shoot Out and the money. It was fun and relaxing. I really thrive on the competition.
