I finally got out to play after about a month off this week. The results were mixed at best so not playing on a regular basis showed its ugliness. The good news was that mentally, I’ve been envisioning on scoring a 39 or better on each side to assure that I’ll break 80. This mindset has really helped in trying to mange the course as I play. The round started off well on the front 9. 3 pars and a bogey in the first four holes. The weather was nice and not too hot so that was the bonus since we’ve had such a hot summer so far.

the rest of the front 9 was three bogies and two pars to finish for a 39. Not a bad score with some solid ball strikes and putting. The Back 9 ended up being a different story. I’ll sum it up as a “nice walk” because I was completely lost on the back. Driving was decent, but I think I was trying to be too aggressive in getting to the greens in regulation. I think I ended up with 4 or 5 balls in the water on approach shots. 4 double bogies and and a triple bogey was the result.
