I shot a 79 on a Par 74 yesterday in our monthly men's league tournament. I missed several putts from inside 5ft... Which leaves a bad taste in my mouth. 37 putts sucks....
I played very conservative golf all day - and really only tried to attack one hole which I birdied (short par 5). I look at my card, and there are so many wasted shots. The missed putts were brutal...
#5 Missed a 5ft birdie putt - just above the hole - pretty straight putt but didn't get it rolling on my start line and pulled it.
#7 Missed a 9ft birdie putt - above the hole - slick putt - just left myself in a tough spot with a difficult birdie attempt.
#8 Missed a 12ft birdie putt - misread, tap in for par.
#9 Missed a 4ft par putt - straight up the hill and pushed it.
#12 Missed a 3ft par putt - pushed.
#13 Missed a 12ft eagle putt - burned the right edge - tapped in for birdie.
#16 Missed a 3ft par putt - pushed.
#17 Missed a 8ft birdie putt - tapped in for par.
Looking at my putting, if I could learn how to pressure putt, I think I'd be an exponentially better player.
