Today went better. Range session before the round went well. Decided to go with a slightly stronger grip with the left hand. Putting practice went well too. Just working to trust the speed, so I can work on the line more. Can’t say that I fully trusted it today, but it still went better.
First hole is a par 5 that’s pretty wide open, the only hole really that you could go almost anywhere… and I tested that out well. Hit my driver about 60yds right of the fairway. Managed to put 2iron just short of the green, in the bunker. Hit to a couple feet for a birdie. Managed to birdie the next 2 holes as well. After that drive and the previous days experiments, it was going to be 2iron the rest of the day.
The 4th hole is 450yds. There is OB left and penalty area right. Hit 2 iron down the middle, left me at 200yds in. The remaining par 5’s 10 and 18 (both around 500yds), I hit two 2 irons to be on or right next to the green. Got birdies out of them. Ended day with 6 birdies. But, I missed a GIR on 4 holes, had one 3 putt, and thus 5 bogies. Day was a -1, 70. This leaves me right in the middle of the pack going into the final day tomorrow.
I want to try and get my driver working in the morning, but I may just end up doing 2iron again all day. I know I can get birdies, I just have to try and reduce the mistakes.
I'm a "Mrs. Carey Barzeski" even for my wife type of person. A few people have the nickname field filled out, and many have avatars/profile pics. If they're a Dr., that is their title, and I just have to remember whether they identify as male or female. 😄
