2023 Petersen Shootout - Day #2

Up fairly early, Larkin and I had breakfast at Katie's Country Kitchen in the hotel. The package for the weekend included a $5.00 food voucher for use at the hotel. It took a while to get the boys up and moving.

Once they were up, We took them to the Genoa Bar. This is billed as Nevada' oldest thirst parlor. We ended up playing two games of pool. I have an interesting history with this bar...

The plan for the day was to play the Sunridge Golf Course. We have played this course twice in the past: 2014 and 2018. Rod started with a closet to the pin contest on the 19th hole. This was followed by a shotgun start at 1:00 pm. The format for the day was a shamble. Borja and his brother-in-law Scott were in the foursome behind us.

Again thanks to Jack's drives, I ended up with a liberally score 91. Last time we played this course as a shamble, I carded a 89. I felt like my putting was very solid on Saturday; I actually birded the first hole that we played.
By the time, we finished playing and got to the hotel it was 6:50 pm. The hosted bar was supposed to open at 7 pm with dinner at 7:45 pm. Getting cleaned up, we didn't get to the banquet room until about 7:15 pm.

With 68 people at the tournament this year, things were more than a little chaotic. They require that every first timer tell a joke; I was surprised at the number of new people. Larkin won $70 for the second place blind foursome.

Larkin and I wandered the casino for a little bit after dinner and visited with Borja. All four of us crashed early.
