Terrible First Round But Still Moving in the Right Direction

The title of this post says all you need to know about my round on Thursday. After a very solid start over the first five holes, things turned ugly quickly, and I couldn't right the ship. I wasn't completely discouraged by the way I hit the ball, but I hit a handful of terrible shots, had a cold putter, and struggled mightily with my short game. I ended up posting a seven-over-par round of 78 in near-perfect scoring conditions at the TPC Deere Run. 

I am very disappointed with that result, but true to my new commitment, I still feel very good about the week of work that I am having. I am continuing to have the best practice that I have had in quite some time, and I know that is the path out of my current slump. Even after my disappointing round today, I had a great practice session this afternoon, and I truly believe that I will be back on my game very soon.

Tomorrow is a new day, and I am definitely ready to start a new trend in my tournament play! I am going to trust my hard work, have fun, and play well in round two. Come back for a good report in the evening. Thank you for keeping up with me.


  1. Hey Peter, great round today (Friday), way to keep your composure and go 6 birdies and 9 pars over the next 15 holes after that tough start. Keep your head can do this. Hang in there and don't be too hard on yourself!!!

  2. Peter, I was one of the four dudes that marked an errant shot today. You were a great sport with us (say high to your uncle Lou...), had a great attitude and gained 4 new fans. We will all be watching and rooting for you. Stay positive and stick to your plan.
