Overall: Playing through!! Why is it that every time you attempt to play through the slow group in front of you, you get stage fright and always seem to top the ball or hit it in the water? Clearly golf is 87% mental and only 43% skill ... yeah, have another sip if you're calculating that in your head right now. The pressure of hitting in front of a group other than your own always gets in my head. But there is a cure...more bourbon!


Bushwood Spirits impressed me with their Stillwater Rye and Long Ball. Throw a 7 year age statement on the Front 9 and we are in business. This makes hitting the halfway house at the turn a little more enjoyable. Honey roasted peanuts and light fruits mixed with a slight citrus zest brings in your senses. Upon the first sip, Corn Flakes with a touch of sugar and some smooth creamy caramels entertain the sides of the palate while finishing with a beautiful peppery rye spice to round things out just right. There's no need for a "Breakfast Ball" off the first tee if you're looking to score well on the Front Nine.


Appreciate the hookup from my friends at Bushwood Spirits! This is one I'll be sharing on the course in the very near future.
