Well we’d like to have roasted out there today, even early. It’s a scorcher already at noon. I shot a 44 and though my partner shot considerably higher than that, she came through with a bogey on the last hole after my double. So for the second straight day we turn in 43.
I started off great with several pars but went 6,6,6,6 on the last four holes!!! It was one of the those days when the tractor follows you from hole to hole. I don’t do so well with noise distractions. I tried to block it out.
The good news was I hit a 3-wood drive on the par 4 eighth hole that went farther than I’ve ever hit driver. There is a gray house with a yard that stretches toward the hole and I’ve always wanted to hit past that piece of property and I did it! Too bad I made six on the hole 😦
I kissed my 3-wood and promised my team mate I’d tee off with it on nine, but unfortunately I pulled it and it shot left and parked under a tree so I had to take my medicine and knock it under branches back onto the fairway. Too bad I also made six on that hole.
But we’ve turned in a gross of 43, 43 so far – with two more rounds to go.
The other piece of news is my handicap is falling fast. I am down 4 points in the past month! And that’s a 9-hole handicap!
