Friday - new course - very nice one, likely my third favorite this year (year of playing a bunch of new courses). 82 (included 5 penalties, so actually a really nice round once I avoid the OOB and lost balls.....40/37 then add in the penalties to a 42/43. I'm ok with that. only 1 birdie, but I did 3 putt on a par 5 where I had a shot at eagle - so I got that going for me. took 9 holes to get warmed up - very windy.
Saturday 35 on the par 36 - probably the first time I've played 9 under par on a course that's not just an easy beginner's track (what I'd call legitimate). I've played this one quite a bit and it's neat course with tight fairways and mature trees and domed greens. Completely on and finally putting good like I was earlier in the season. On a couple par 4s I decided to put driver away and play to layup areas - absolutely paid off. 1 birdie (chip in) and 8 pars. Just really boring and regulation golf, normally I'm a bogie machine. The GIRs I missed were really close and easy up and downs. I don't know what was going on that day, but I hope it sticks around for awhile.
I played 3 more holes coming back in (I had to start on #5) and played them par, then bogie, then birdie (another chip in). That bogie was a half roll from a par. so about as good a day as I could ask for. (2i and 4w on this is actually 2H and 4H)
