The legs were a bit achy when we woke at 6am this morning to play the friendlier course at the Taupo Golf Club, Tauhara.
We again donned our red Westfield caps because of the spots of rain on the windscreen as we drove to the course, but luckily the rain stayed away throughout the round. Tauhara is a relatively straight forward course, that played at least 10 shots easier than Kinloch. The course is great for the confidence, with short holes and well paced flat greens. It is also a pretty easy walk, and Jamie and I managed to complete our round in about 2.5 hours. The main feature of Tauhara is the geothermal activity sprouting up on a couple of holes.
I managed to come out on top again today, by 2&1 and have narrowed Jamie's overall lead to 7-4. I managed a 77 and Jamie an 81. But the story of today is not golf, but the logistical side of puregolf2010.
We have three main campaigns on our hands at the moment: 1) fundraising for The First Tee; 2) raising funds for ourselves through sponsorship; and 3) arranging our golfing itinerary (in particular our United States leg).
Thus Jamie and I are holed up in an internet cafe, sending emails and making phone calls for the afternoon... The art of cold calling is a skill that we are trying to master, but our crazy adventure still takes some explaining to the unsuspecting recipient who has not heard of our adventure. Jamie is looking at his computer with some disgust as the slow internet drives both of us mad. Who said all this was supposed to be easy!
