Kodak Challenge Crowne Plaza Update

From the people at Kodak:

Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial
Sunday, May 22, 2011
Hole #13 at Colonial Country Club, Fort Worth, TX


Kodak Leader Lunde Birdies Hole #13 Sunday at Colonial
Lunde Leaves Texas with Two Shot Lead in $1 Million Competition


Kodak Challenge leader, Bill Lunde saved his best swing on Kodak hole No. 13 at Colonial Country Club for the final round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational. Lunde hit his 184-yard tee shot to five feet of the cup, setting up the short birdie putt and moving him to 11-under-par on the Kodak leaderboard. The frontrunner sits two strokes ahead of PGA TOUR pros Kevin Na, Paul Goydos, and Charley Hoffman.

The Kodak Challenge moment of the day was delivered by William McGirt, who drained a 28-footer for Sunday’s longest Kodak birdie putt on the 171-yard par-3 13th. Stewart Cink carded the easiest Kodak birdie from four feet.

Kodak Challenge hole No. 13 was the hardest hole during the final round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial. Gusting winds sent one out of every five tee shots into the water on Sunday. The Kodak hole yielded eight birdies, 38 pars, 11 bogeys and 11 double bogeys.


The next Kodak Challenge hole is the 363-yard par-4 No. 14 at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio during the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide Insurance on June 2-5. The Memorial will be the 17th of 30 tournaments to participate in the $1 million Kodak Challenge competition.

View From The Colonial Clubhouse Veranda

Crowne Plaza (59 of 60)

A view from the Clubhouse veranda at the Crowne Plaza Invitational. Mrs. GolfBlogger and I had asked if we could get tickets for the opening rounds after the Wed. Pro Am and Crowne Plaza granted us clubhouse access. It was so much more than we hoped for.

The 18th At The Colonial Country Club

Colonial 18th (1 of 1)

This is a view lying three. My first hooked left into the trees. Not to worry. Playing in Michigan, I’m an expert at getting out of the trees. I used a three wood to punch it back to to the fairway. My third was just short of the green. From there, I putted up to the green. Five went in.

Go Stuart Appleby!

Crowne Plaza (36 of 60)

As CBS coverage begins today, Stuart Appleby, my pro partner at the Wed Pro-Am is tied for third, just three back of the lead. Go Stuart!!!

I’m not an excitable person, but I am as emotionally invested in this golf course as I have ever been in an event. They’re on a course I’ve played and my new favorite player is in contention.

Sixteenth Hole At The Colonial

Colonial 16th (1 of 1)

Bogey for me here. I put the tee shot into the bunker left, then popped it up to the rough on the right. I chipped down and then putted in. But another in our group already was in the hole for a par.

    Basic Golf Shirt Review

    Basic Golf Shirt Grade: A Teacher’s Comments: It would get an A plus, but it’s too “hip” for this 40-something guy. (Is “hip” even a term anymore?) The Basic Golf Shirt isn’t. Basic, that is. Rather, it’s a high quality, reasonably priced—and dare I say…
