Tee Time Week Nine: Pinson vs. The Pro (Candler Hills G.C.)
Pinson vs. The Pro debuts at Candler Hills Golf Club in Ocala
OCALA, Fla. (WCJB) - Week nine of Tee Time brings Chris Pinson to Candler Hills Golf Club in Ocala for the debut of the final installment of TV20′s summer golf special - Pinson vs. The Pro.
In this brand new segment, Chris challenges the L.P.G.A. Professional of Candler Hills Golf Club, Denise Mullen, to a one-hole match to see who can record the lowest score.
For this fun and challenging clash of the titans, Denise selected the pair play the beautiful par-3 17th hole.
This picturesque hole plays about 135 yards from the white tees, and while there isn’t too much trouble to get into off the left side of the hole, there are three yawning bunkers that guard the hole down the right side and on the greenside.
A wayward shot in to the bunkers could spell disaster for either player, so the key for both was to hit the left-center portion of the green and give themselves a chance to make a putt for birdie.
