For the past week or so, I've been having some trouble with getting past the blowup holes, and just overall coming down the stretch. I played a round today and I parred the first hole, and then the second hole was a shorter par 5. I hit it into the fairway, hit a pretty good lay-up to about 85 from the pin, and i took out my 56 degree wedge and wanted to hit about a 3/4 wedge. I skull it and the ball flies OB. I hit another shot from where I was and pulled it into the left rough. I then proceeded to duff the little chip shot and left myself about a 15 footer for double bogey, and two-putted for triple (heck it might have been a quad depending on if the rules differ and if I took the correct penalty). Through two holes, after making a pretty good sand save, I am already +3 on the round. I ended up the round shooting 87 with 2 triples and 2+ double bogeys I don't know how many of those I had but at least two. It's just those holes, it's hard diagnosing the problem because it's a compilation of things. Short game, approach game, (putting?). It's been my goal for a little while to break 80 for the first time this summer, and I have been so close so many times! Whenever I get on a good run, I always end up messing it up somehow. For example I was playing at my local course and I was +2 thru 5, and the 6th hole was a par 5 that I played pretty well and ended up birdieing it. The next hole I also birdied and was even with two to go.... 8th hole, par 3, I pull my tee shot left, and still have an opportunity for up and down, but didn't get the pitch close enough and had a 10 footer or so that I missed... the 9th I don't even remember what happened but I ended up double bogeying it to be +3 for nine... it seems that whenever I have the opportunity to shoot a number around par, I screw it up within the final stretch of 2-3 holes. How do I keep a good run going?
