86,after ESC 83, sigh, 73.4 139
After another good start I successfully mangled a potentially good day, started off with a sandy birdie on #1 par 5 from about 40 yards, I then messed up an easy short par 4 with a bogey but that wasn't that big of a deal, #3 I almost holed out my chip for birdie but easy tap in for 3, #4 is the number 1 hdcp hole and I had about 175 to the pin, I put a 6 iron about 20 feet away and drained the putt for my second birdie, Then it just started unraveling, I just hate playing from a cart I thought I had the right club with me when I grabbed 3 in case but when I got the measurement I realized I had to throttle back on my gap and bladed across the green into some rocks...double. Hole #6 downhill par 5 that requires layup hit tee shot on hillside lost ball,topped 4th from fairway fifth in trap 6th off lip 7th on green 2 putt 9!!!!!!!!!GAME OVER, I just could not get into a groove other than birdie on 11 I lost another ball in tall grass and took a triple on 14 just up and down and just too much down.
Being 13 over on only 5 holes is just flat out inexcusable considering I can play 13 at 1 over, This round had 78 written all over it and sloppy play killed a good opportunity. I'm seriously thinking about taking the weekend off from golf since I have either played or practiced every day this year and I think I may be a little burned out and it showed today, I can't remember the last time I had this many blow up holes in 1 round, a double or 2 is usually the most but this was a disaster.
On a more positive note Iron play was not too bad I can still obviously improve but I'm making good contact much more consistently, putting really didn't hurt me either in fact I don't think I missed a single putt less than 4' and made a few 5' sliders had only one 3 putt so I think putt total was 33. Bad GIR at 6 FRWY 8 not good.
