80 (41-39) today. Played in the heat of the afternoon. Normally play early mornings. Just couldn't get it going. 3 putted 4 or 5 greens. Difference in putting mornings versus late afternoons. Not to mention, the heat just takes everything out of you. 93 degrees, feel like 107.
I’m a Spieth fan as well, and I’m also disappointed that he didn’t play well. One of the reasons I root for him is he’s a local guy. I’m from Durham, NC, and he’s from Raleigh. Another reason is he just seems like a good guy to hang out around.
I’m also a Tiger fan, and I was thrilled when I saw he was -2 through four holes and pretty much stayed either there or one under and finished with 68. If he gets on track, I think we’ll see his name on another trophy come Sunday evening.
Club championship is flighted, but not by age. Single figure’s to enter, It’s a 36H qualifier and then knockout match play for top 16. For 10 cap and above there is a Mid Cap (18 H qualifier, then knock out). Seniors is 55 and over.
On the point of kids playing, my old club championship was frequently won by juniors, and juniors frequently made up up large parts of the men’s teams. Golf (competitive) is by and large a meritocracy in Scotland.
