The Round: Played South Hill Country Club Score 85 Greens in Reg. 3 Putts 34
The Good: The middle 6 holes believe it or not. I played even par by parring 6 holes in row with 2 good looks at birdie. All phases of the game were clicking even though I did not make putts of any length, I made a couple of 6 footers to save par. It took me awhile to start playing well and then it disappeared just as quickly on the last 6 holes.
The Bad: Obviously the other 12 holes. I started out like I had never played the game before. Then I lost 2 balls in the rough on the back nine, and that seemed to destroy any idea of shooting any more good golf. My putting was not very good all day, but just a poor attitude after some of the lost balls, 3 in all that were right on the course did not help the cause. It is one thing to lose balls in the woods or a hazard but when you are maybe 15 yards off the fairway and you cannot find your ball because the rough is so deep, that you almost have to step on the ball to find it, in my view is not golf. At least not for old guys. It really is just an excuse for a game that is in disarray.
The Luck Of The Round: None. Losing the balls and again not finding the hole on some very good putts just added to the frustration of a very nice weather day, at least.
Next Round: Tomorrow at South Park. Hopefully more familiar ground will help me get back on track.
