“It was like coming this close to your dreams and then watch them brush past you like a stranger in a crowd.” – Moonlight Graham
Forgive me if the baseball reference seems out of sorts in a golf article. My mind is not in the sharpest of states.
But the above quote, evangelized by Doc “Moonlight” Graham in Field of Dreams when asked about his one-inning playing career, is what ran through my head as I stood on the Pinehurst clubhouse veranda, staring at a submerged 18th green at the No. 2 course, watching my round of a lifetime literally and figuratively float away.
