Where Does It Go?

Sometimes my game just leaves me. I am really proud of the way I stayed positive and stayed committed to my game plan today in round two, but my execution was just not sharp enough to put together a good round. I shot one over par today to make my two-day total one-under-par 141. Unfortunately, the cut fell at three under, so I will not be competing on the weekend.

Disappointing? Very much so, but I can't imagine that the game which was so good just two short days ago is very far gone. I definitely am not happy with the way I played, but I have just got to go get it back and be ready to go next week in Greensboro. I can do that, and I will!

Today was strange because I cannot blame my poor performance on mental errors. Typically when I play poorly it is because I was not thinking properly. Today, I was thinking the right thoughts at the right times and somehow my body wouldn't translate those thoughts into good shots. I started on the difficult back nine and failed to take advantage of good tee shots early in the day before suffering a pair of bogeys after hitting terrible iron shots into the long par-four 16th and long par-three 18th. I executed a little better on the front nine, but could not get any putts to go in until an anticlimactic 15-footer for birdie on the last hole dropped straight in the center.

I'm not sure where my game went. It felt so good heading into the week, and I went into both rounds certain I would play well. I just didn't. My game hid from me last couple of days, but I'm going to go find it and make sure I know right where it is for next week. It's back to work tomorrow, and I'm ready!
