Lousy Ball-striking Continues in Round Two

My first event of 2010 has ended a day early. Poor ball-striking had me working hard to make pars in the second round on a day when slightly warmer temperatures led to lower scores for the field. Again, I fought hard and my short game and putting both felt good, but in the end, I just didn't give myself enough birdie opportunities. I shot 74 in round two to go with my 76 in round one, and I missed the cut by a single shot.

I feel like I have a lot of positive feelings to take from this tournament, however. I didn't even have my "C" game from tee to green, and I still managed keep myself in the tournament with my short game. I need to continue to work to make my short game even better, but I gained a lot of confidence in that area this week. I know I'm a good ball-striker, too, so I just need to practice a lot over the next few days until something "clicks" again. I'm confident that it will happen before next week, when I tee it up in tournament number two for 2010.

Next week I'm playing in another of the Hooter's Tour Winter Series events. It is again a 54-hole event from Tuesday-Thursday. I'm excited for the chance to redeem myself!
