The 5W plan started well Sunday morning, but stuff progressively got worse as we went along and the back nine was another train wreck.
Kind of like yesterday I started decent with pars at 1 and 2 and scrapped my way to a 45 on the front. Resorting the 5W kept those balls in play on the front, but left some really long seconds. Some dodgy work with the wedge and few less close misses with the putter and it could have been better. But the back nine had two major blow-up holes and really not a lot of anything good for a 55 and another triple digit score. Only two strokes better than that rotten 102 I carded yesterday,
I was riding so tiredness or the heat are not reasonable excuses, but swings (and different kinds of shots) were all much poorer. The back is a little bit tighter than the front, but it isn't that tough. This weekend cements in my head that I'm now a triple-digit golfer. It's not as if it is some particular flaw that can be corrected with just a bit more practice. The almost bogey golfer from two years ago is gone and this is what is left.
Like some fellows pointed out in my post for the first round, I stuck it out. I took every stroke, counted every penalty and turned in an accurate and complete scorecard. It was a chance to meet some of the better players at Miami Shores, so that's worth something.
Taking a bit of time away from golf sounds like a good idea right now. We'll see how I feel about it next week.
