A Lot of Positives

At the end of the day in the final round today, my scorecard read 74 just as it did in the third round. That is definitely not a score with which I am happy, but I really feel like I did a lot of things well and had a good tournament overall. I felt great this morning and just knew that I was going to play well. My round looked promising early as I made great birdies on the first and third holes to walk to the fourth tee at -2 for the day. Unfortunately, the next seven holes would see me make two double-bogeys and a triple-bogey. I swapped a birdie with a bogey at 11 and 12 and stood at +5 with six holes remaining. I stayed positive and managed three consecutive birdies on holes 14-16 before narrowly missing birdie putts on each of the last two holes. I made just a few really bad swings today, and they cost be a lot of shots, but I was very good the majority of the time.

I will share much more about my feelings from this tournament as a whole in another post tomorrow, but I will just say quickly for now that I am very happy with a lot of what happened this week. I hit plenty of very good shots, and feel confident that I will be able to eliminate some of the costly bad ones as the year moves forward.

My weekend performance dropped me down the leaderboard slightly, but I finished the tournament in a tie for 14th place. I'm not satisfied with that finish, but I do feel like it is a good starting point for what I expect will be a great year. Come back here tomorrow for more analysis of the first tournament and an exciting look ahead!
