I'm entering my 6 year of golf. With the weather in ND i get to golf for about 3 months of the year. I broke 100 in my first year and 90 the next. I have been stuck in the 80s for quite some time with a best of 85. I have had many nines in the high 30's but I have never quite put together a great 18. Here is how my round went today.
Par 72 72.1/121
Shot a career best 36 (+1) on the front with 14 puts
12. Double (found one of the nice rock hard concrete bunkers on my second shot and had no chance to get it close)
16. Bogey (3 putted after my birdie chance lipped out)
I came the the par 5 18th needing a double or better to shoot 79. I pulled my drive to the left about 7 yards behind a tree. I decided to aim right and punch out to the fairway. I obviously did not aim far enough right as my ball hits off the tree and flies right out of bounds. I aimed much farther right on my fourth and got the ball back to the fairway played my fifth to about 30 yards from the green and chipped up to about 10 feet. I needed this putt to shoot 79. Of course the ball lips out and I have to settle for an 80. On the bright side I have something to look forward too next time. I might just skip the sub 80s goal and go straight to par.
