Finally ran into some trouble of the tee to start the back, but managed a par, then left one way short on the par 3 11th. Was expecting about a club of wind help, didn't get it, and hit it really fat to boot. You can hear I wasn't happy about it.
Finished -5 67. Not the best scoring round of my life, but to stay clean and shoot 5 under on a 7030 yd 73.7/135? Sure feels like one of the best. Buddy won a split so no one lost any money and he changed our tee time tomorrow to my nemesis course instead of the lake. I don't think I've ever shot lower than 77 there. Lol Strategy.
Hope it wasn't as bad as it looked, Apex. And that others got out today. I'd gift our weather here today and tomorrow to any Midwestern sufferers if I could.
Got lucky on 9. Yanked my drive and just barely cleared the out of bounds. Worked a birdie. Out in 33 (-3), and then gave one back on ten. The high launch spinny shafts are in full effect heading west into the wind. And I'm going to have to make an adjustment for the distance change in the combos from the standard and the pros.
Trying to play a little smarter with this inconsistent wind. Isn't always working out, but did with this 4-iron off the tee on 11. I usually hit driver here (short par 4) and get in trouble. 237 down the middle I can live with today.
