When I came to the 6th hole, I was last to play among my two other partners. Much to my horror I watched both of them hit their balls into the water.(They won't want to be reminded of this) I selected a 7 iron and hit what I considered to be one of my best hit iron shots for some time. My partners immediately acknowledged the good shot and thought that it might have ended in the hole but were unsure. On walking up to the green I looked firstly at the back, but could not see a ball. I then walked over to the hole and was thrilled to see the ball in the hole. Congratulations were expressed by my playing partners.
