Day 4: Last Ball

“It’s kind of like running a marathon. You’re just exhausted and beat up at the end, and you think, ‘I could never do that again,’ and then three months later you’re ready to run another one.” As the 19th Hot List summit winds down, the testers feel pride and relief, mixed with growing sadness about the pending trip home. But first, they need to finish the job and live up to the Mikes’ age-old Hot List summit mantra: “The last ball is as good as the first ball.” And no matter how tired and hurting, they always have time for a little extra golf once the last score has been delivered at the end of the day.
