Next round after that 72 was yesterday. I kept going with my same feels. Driver once again started out a little hooky, but I played for it and it worked out. Ball flight was pretty consistent, a 5-8yd draw. It's a little more than I want, but it's ok for right now. The tough part is trying to hit a cut. My swing path is in to out a bit much so makes it hard but I made do.
Ended up with a 69 (-3). Made a few more putts. Short game wasn't as on point this round. With everything a little wet all day, I couldn't get the ball to stop. Overall, I am pleased with how things are going. I have a few scramble events coming up next.
Reed could have done a lot better for himself than he did.
It could have been played off as a mistake, but for a guy with his reputation, he sounded too dismissive of it. That's exactly the wrong tact to take with a fellow golfers, both the ones that play against him and those who watch the sport.
Patrick is going to have to do it better and cleaner than everyone else going forward or he's going to known as a cheater for the rest of his days.
To be honest, I only have 11 clubs in my bag now, and rarely hit all of them. My driver, 4 hybrid, PW and putter are certainties to be used on any given round. Some irons will be used. Usually two more between the 5 and 9 iron and one of the SW/LW depending on needing to fly or exit a bunker/hazard onto a green. Of course, length determines which irons are needed, especially on shorter par 3's where the hybrid is too much club.
