South Riding – 88
Shot an 88 at South Riding yesterday. The saddest part is that I had 6 lost balls. 88 with six lost balls is actually pretty good considering, but still 6 lost balls is 6 lost balls. Can’t have that. My biggest problem was my tee shot. I was spraying everywhere for the most part. This one shot off the tee, I hit a 5W directly into the woods, 25 yards away. It was atrocious. Sad may be the better word.
The good parts of my round was the 9 pars, 32 putts, and quite a few up and downs. Only 5 fairways and 6 greens. I think I need to hit the range and fast. If I can work out my driver, I foresee a round in the 70s, in the very near future. I am close; I can taste it.
My handicap currently sits at 12.8. I’m out of the teens! Hah. I guess the real question is, for how long?
