Round 2 Awaits

There isn't a lot of positive news to report from my first round of this week's Egolf event. Playing at the Chechessee Creek Club, I made a few very sloppy swings and putted the ball very poorly as well. I hit enough good shots to manage four birdies, but I couldn't overcome the plethora of mistakes to post a decent first-round score. I ended the day with a 74 on the par-70 layout, and definitely have some work to do if I'm going to get back into the tournament.

I do want to focus on the positive. I had a great practice at Oldfield Golf Club (the tournament's host venue) following my morning round and am feeling poised to find that "lovin' feeling" in my second round. I spent hours on the practice green attempting to rekindle the great feelings that I typical have with my putter. I completed a couple of my putting drills and really feel like I made great progress. In addition, a quick session on the driving range seemed to clear up some of the sloppy swings that plagued me today. I feel like really good golf is hiding just beneath the surface of what I am currently putting forward. Tomorrow I am going to relax and enjoy myself and let that good golf come out.

I play just after lunch time at Oldfield for my second round. I am pumped and ready to get back into this tournament. Come back for a good report following the round!
