No Good but I Feel Good!

I struggled to a final round score of even-par 72 at Cowan's Ford Country Club. Front nine winds and some good putts that burned the edge left me a disappointing one over at the turn, but I was determined to stay patient and battle out a good round on the back. I hit it great on the back, with the exception of one awful swing where I hit a three iron out of bounds off the tee on the short par-4 13th. Other than that I made three good birdies and had a couple other close calls for birdie. One of those birdies was a great up and down on the par-5 18th to get my total back to even for the round. I'm not happy with the score, but I'm very proud of the way I fought until the end and stayed positive.

So I ended the tournament at nine under par and tied for 48th. That is definitely not what I had in mind for the week, but my game felt great. I just had too many little blunders here and there to ever really get it going. I know that my game is where I want it to be now, though!

I'm home in Tennessee for a day now and will be cooking dinner for Mom tonight. Happy Mother's Day, Mom! On Monday morning, I'll be taking off for Missouri. I'm going to start my journey to Pebble Beach at local qualifying for the U.S. Open in St. Louis on Thursday. I'm going to get through local qualifying on the Thursday, and then stay and practice in Columbia for a few days.

I'm excited to keep playing well and keep getting better. Check back here for a travel update and a practice report before the U.S. Open qualifier!
