Two time National Champion!!!!

I did it!

I accomplished a several of my long term goals on sunday the 19th of April. Not only did I manage to win the highly competitive singles championship (without losing a any playoff games) but Doug Grimsley and I managed to win the doubles championship as well. This was not new for Doug, in fact, he won last year with Leo McBride. It had always been a pipe dream to win both championships in one day. I was super excited that I had two chances at a National title, I never hoped to win both.

It was mostly a result of consitently hitting in. During the last few days of the tournament I managed to hit around 75% of all hit-ins under 20 yards, which is remarkable for me. My long shot peaked at just the right time. I've always enjoyed the saying, "it's better to be lucky than good".
