Went 39 - 35 yesterday for a 74 which included a 6 on a 275 yd par 4, and an O.B. tee shot on 17 but managed to get up and down from 100 yds to save bogey.
Back 9 was very solid outside of that original tee shot on 17. I hit it to tap in range from 124 on hole 10, made 6 straight pars after that, bogeyed 17 with that O.B. tee shot after hitting my 2nd drive 310 yds in the fairway and hitting the 100 yd approach shot to 6 feet, and drained a 10 footer for birdie on 18 to break par for the back 9.
I have broken par on 9 multiple times this year but haven't quite been able to put a complete round together yet, hoping it happens this coming weekend when I'm in Pinehurst.
Best shot for me this week was also the closest I've ever been to holing out something besides a chip or short pitch.
Had 124 to a back flag, was aiming for a 120 yd shot with my 54 degree, absolutely pured it and it never left the flagstick for a tap in birdie.
Having suffered heat stroke last year I won’t play if the humidity gets over 100*.
I walked Pinehurst #2 this morning. Had the 1st tee time at 7:00. It was 76 with a feels like of 80. The front 9 went quickly but by the time we got to the 12th hole the temp started to rise. There was an off and on breeze (mostly off). We finished 16 and it was 83 with a feels like of 88.
Walking off 18 it was 88 with a feels like of 88. It wasn’t bad overall, but I was soaked. We walked fairly fast, played in 3 hours 17 minutes. Guy I played with played #4 os Saturday, it took just over 5 hours! He walked it too and it was exhausting!
Just know your limits, drink your fluids!
