Report What'd You Shoot Today? in Golf Talk Wednesday at 02:32 PM I’ve got a lot of golf to tell y’all about (including regionals on Monday, more about that in my blog!), playing four days in a five-day stretch, so here we go! THURSDAY: This was the last official day of practice of the season, so we had a match to finish. Me, two teammates and one of the coaches played nine holes from the blues. I was off to a strong start, one under through two after getting up and down for par on the first hole and hitting a 6I to within a foot on the second hole. I didn’t know it because I was only focused on what I was doing, but I already had a three-stroke lead. I pretty much coasted for the next six holes, and when we got to the ninth tee I was five over, but I still led by one. When my coach told me that, it turned into Choke City. I was 100 out after two shots, and a par would seal at least a tie. Then I hit my third into a bunker, took two to get out, and then three putted for a triple bogey. I had shot 44, earning me a third-place finish and a two-stroke deficit. Not a good way to end, but some good golf was to come. SATURDAY: The coach treated us to a weekend at the beach before regionals (we went down Friday afternoon and left Sunday morning) and we played a nice course while we were there. It wasn’t that hard a course, but I still shot 99. Not a great round, but I was putting reasonably well and hitting some huge drives (I think I hit four tee shots 270 or longer). I told my coach afterward that I hit probably every mishit possible: I chunked shots, thinned em, shanked em, pulled em, pushed em. Topping was the only one I don’t recall hitting, but it was super inconsistent. SUNDAY: We went to Keith Hills on Sunday morning for our practice round. We hit our tee shots and approaches to the pin locations there, but then we picked up our balls and chipped and putted to where we imagined the holes would be cut Monday. I hit the ball pretty well on those holes, and the highlight was where I dropped a ball around the 140-yard mark and hit a 9I to two feet. We did have seven holes, however, where we kept score and played like it was the actual tournament. Holes 6-9 was a tough stretch, but I went +4 there, so I was fairly pleased with that. On the back, we kept score on holes 14-16, and I made an eight on the par-3 14th after having bunker trouble. On the 15th I made a double after hitting my second shot OB and making a nice up-and-down. The 16th is a short par 4, around 330 from the tips. It was downhill and downwind, and the course was firm, so I was able to get my tee shot pretty close to the green. Up-and-down for birdie! I’ll go more in-depth about the tournament in my blog later today, and it will probably be my last post there.
