Yesterday I played nine on the blue course at East Potomac. It was deathly slow. Two hours plus. Still, it was nice to get out and practice a little

My highlight was the par-4 6th. I smoked a driver, but it drew left of the tree line. About 50 yards from the flag, I pitched a low eight-iron. It clipped the trees, but still made it to the green, setting up a sixty-foot birdie putt. I left the putt well short, but drained a 15-footer for par.

My second highlight was the multiple flyovers from Marine One (technically the helicopters used for Marine One – they’re not technically Marine One unless the president is aboard). They’re based just down the river, and evidently conduct practice flights up and down the river.
