Almost A Great Round
I shot 40-48=88, with 11 pars, 1 Bogie, 3 Double-Bogies, 2 Triple Bogies, and one Quadruple.
I parred #6 & #7 in the same round for the first time.
I had 6 one-putt greens, and holed a dozen putts ranging from 1 to 20 ft.
I striped every drive 250-260 with the wind; 230-240 against . . . only two drifted right into trouble, and I parred both of those holes with journeyman-like recoveries.
I missed my only two real birdie chances, on #16 & #17, with burned edges.
The Blowup Holes:
- #3, took 5 to get down from 50 yds, trying so hard to birdie that I damaged my par.
- #8, triple-bogie without going in the water- chunked into a trap, then chunked out, then 3putted.
- #10, lost a wind-blown 7iron in the desert, then 3jacked for a triple bogie, still not sure what happened.
- #15, skulled a 5 iron off the tee, twice, trying to play strategically, went into 2 traps- snowman
- #18, double-crossed by 3wood, going for the green in 2; tried a heroic wedge out of the desert, instant double bogie
