Well after hitting a 62 including a lost ball bogey at St Andrew’s in the first round of the Championship tournament this week I thought I’d strike while the iron was hot and fly over to Pinehurst to hit it early in the week.
needless to say the hotness did not stay hot. Wasn’t playing badly, a couple I disagree with where the computer put me (hit a 3 wood in L-R wind with a fade and end up in a bunker left of flight line and aim point lol?)
Couple of bogeys hurting and always challenges short game with the table top greens but most embarrassing was hole 13:
I’d punched beyond the pin and had a downhill slider which I knew would be slippy so barely touched it and took off well more than my normal downhill compensation. Touched edge of hole and proceeded to meander over the next minute or so off the front of the green. I walked off with a bogey after hitting the green and having a regulation 2 putts in the stats lol. Degreened as they call it these days on the tour.
Anyway, I digress, Wk19 Pinehurst - 68 helped by a couple of late birdies at 16 and 17.
go low folks.
