Shot even par 36 on the front nine yesterday afternoon. A very rare thing for me.
I arrived at the course and realized that there was a mini-ouitng going on so I went to the range. I had been driving poorly so I went to work on my swing. I realized that my hands were getting a little loose at the top, so I increased my grip tension a little and deliberately shortened my swing a little. Boom!! Started hitting the ball long (for me) and straight. I ran into a friend and we stayed at the range until the outing cleared the 1st tee. I hit the ball great with the new swing thought. Hit a loose drive on 2, had to layup and made bogey. Hit another loose drive on 7, had to layup and got up and down from 70 yards. Hit every other green in reg (almost; one was about five feet short of the green and I putted it). Birdied the 9th to shoot even par. It was getting dark so that was all we got in.
I am very pumped for Saturday. I hope the rain clears.
