Batface Links: Tourney Update #1

Our heroes are off to a slow start having bogeyed the first hole, a long 467-yard dogleg left par four. Todd Phillips pulled his tee shot left only to have his ball rest between two roots of an oak tree. After having to declare an unplayable lie, Phillips punched his approach shot to well short of the green and picked up his ball with little hope of making better than double bogey.

Playing aggressively, Scott Fawcett bombed his tee shot over the dogleg, but he hit it through the fairway, where his ball carromed off an unsuspecting fan in the gallery and came to rest on top of a styrofoam cooler. Fawcett punched his second shot back into the fair, destroying the cooler. His thrid shot landed just twelve feet from the hole, but he missed his par putt and settled for bogey.

At one-over, our heroes stand just four strokes out of the lead and on pace for a first round score of 90.

On a side note, the owner of the destroyed styrofoam cooler was overheard saying," How am I supposed to keep my fuckin' Mickey's cold now? Damn that Scott Fawcett. Damn him."
