Mid Am at Nordelta golf course (Buenos Aires, Argentina). Par 72, rating 73.5, 6800 yards.
83-77 (+16) not a good weekend at all.
It all went downhill on the 2nd hole of the tournament, making a 7 on a Par 3.
Sitting at +8 on 8th tee i started a comeback with a couple of birdies to sit at +6 on the 14th tee.
5 bogeys on the final 5 holes ended this bad day.
I didn´t play that bad to shoot in the 80´s but i did.
On Sunday things started a lot better, +1 on the front 9 and was Even par at 14th.
Again the last 5 holes didn´t go well and with 3 balls in the water i ended +5.
The winner shot 1 under. So i need to cut 8 strokes from each round to have a chance of winning in this competitions. Not going to happend so.. just relax and have fun competing at top level.
The only positive thing that I can take home is that the last time I played the course I shoot +20 in 2 rounds so is an improvement. There´s something about this course that keep kicking my ass every time i play there.
I don’t see any downside to soft spikes because there are so many variations. I’m surprised the players on tour haven’t done something about players that use them.. you want to putt over their spikes marks when metal are not necessary.
The LD guys don’t wear metal so any PGA tour player that says he needs them for grip ... should “get a grip”
