My round today was weird. I started solidly, hitting the first three fairways and playing the first four holes in one-under-par. Then I snarf-hooked a drive into a hazard on the fifth hole and made a double bogey. A few holes later a similar shot with a three wood off the tee led to another penalty drop and a bogey. A poor wedge on nine and another hooked drive on ten led to two more bogeys and had me at three-over-par for the day. I composed myself on the the 11th tee and was determined to get control of my round. Three perfect shots on the 11th led to a birdie, and then my putter went to work saving pars for me in blustery conditions on each of the next four holes. I bogeyed two of my last three to shoot 76, but the two bogeys were more the result of misjudged wind than anything else. I'm proud of the way I was able to salvage a decent round when it seemed to be getting away from me there in the middle of the day.
I'm currently at +4 and tied for 51st. The leader is at -7, but only ten players managed to better par for the first 36 holes. I tee off on the the 10th hole at the Founders Club at 9:20 tomorrow for my third round, and I feel like I'm going to make a positive move! I'm going to commit to every shot, trust my game, and have fun tomorrow!! I think that will result in a good score!
