BOM led by YHC

Moleskin: YHC had a great time putting this workout together. As a longtime fan of Jack Nicklaus, and now the same age the Golden Bear was back in 1986 at 46 years old, this was a most enjoyable workout for the QIC this AM!

The yardages for the holes were those from 1986. Since the broadcast didn’t mention which club was being used on most shots, YHC assumed the club Nicklaus used on several of them. An article about this historic round told which clubs were used on a few of the pivotal shots, so the 5-iron tee shot on 16, pitching wedge approach on 17, and 3-wood off the tee on 18 are accurate.

The total reps in the workout were 300, not counting those in the COP and Mary.

YHC also peppered in some of the famous quotes uttered by the announcers over the final holes throughout the workout…

On 15: “Yes sir! The battle is joined. My goodness. There is life in the old Bear yet!” – Ben Wright

On 16: “And there’s no doubt about it… the Bear has come out of hibernation.” – Jim Nantz (This was actually Jim’s first Masters tournament at 26 years old. He proved right off the bat his ability to interject a cheesy one-liner to the broadcast).

On 17: “Maybe… Yes, SIR!“ – Verne Lundquist

Closing thoughts: A lot had to fall into place for Nicklaus to don the Green Jacket for his record 6th time 35 years ago (Seve Ballesteros’ water ball on 15, Greg Norman’s wayward approach shot on 18, and Tom Kite’s near miss on the final hole) — but at the end of the day, he focused on what he could control, and in the end things worked out for him. Kind of reminds us of life — if we do our best, block out what’s going on around us and focus on what we can have an impact on, we put ourselves in the best position to succeed.

F3’s mission is to plant, grow and serve small workout groups for men for the invigoration of male community leadership.

There are 3 Fs in F3. While the 1st F is the hook of fitness that gets us out there, let’s be sure to push into the 2nd and 3rd Fs of fellowship and faith to allow ourselves to become High Impact Men to our family and community, living 3rd, and serving others.

Upcoming 5-year anniversary
