Finally made it out to a mens club tournament Sunday.
It was an individual strokeplay event, so my brothers schedule didn't interfere, and my game has improved again lately so I had a little confidence going into it.
I hadn't played this course since Feb, but it is an easier course than my usual course, so I thought I might do well.
On the range, I was snap hooking everything... so I thought this could be fun.
I sliced the crap out of the first drive, but nailed my 3H from 230 to hit the par 5 green in 2, but awful 3 putt meant par to start.
At 18 cap, I'll take par, just hurts to miss a birdie to start.
Next hole, sliced into the wrong fairway again. Nice AW from 100 yards middle of the green, missed the birdie putt by 2 feet, another par... not bad.
Finally hit a drive nicely, 280 yards, lil wedge into the green, SKULLED it into the thick crap behind the green. Unlike my normal self, I pitch it perfect and leave myself a 2 footer for par, make it, now we're on a roll.
Sliced drive again, but left me a nice 3H on the par 5, hit it nice, looking good, wait a minute, ZOOM left, snap hook somehow, OB. I hit the next ball through the tree and managed to get onto the fairway, miss the green, but go up and down for a double, without the ob would have been par.
So doing well, 2 over through 4, a bogey here and there and then BOOM, on number 8, i shoot an 8. 4 to get on and 4 putt, lipity lip lip.
I shoot par on nine to shoot 45... rough end.
Pretty much in cruise now... hit one shot great, another crap.
Ended up 9 pars, 6 bogeys, 2 doubles (one was ob) and the QUAD. Shot 86 (41 back) and I felt like I hit a load of shocking shots.
It was net 68 and I took 3rd net.
The winner was 63 net, 16 capper shot 79 (pretty good round)
The next was 66 net.
I was happy with an 86, dont get me wrong, thrilled with 3rd net, but should have been my best score ever, just a wierd golf day, it wasn't just one piece of my game that was lacking, everything was good and bad, just kinda strange.
Nice to get paid, nice to play, and I know lower scores are round the corner
Sorry for the rant.
