The Round: Played South Park Score 71 Greens in Reg. 11 Putts 28

The Good: First off, I played the senior tees, but I am not going to disparage the round in any way. No matter what tees you play from you have to hit the fairway, hit the green, and make the putts and boy did I ever make the putts. Three of my four birdies were on putts between 15 feet and 25 feet. I knocked it on the front edge of the green on number 10, a par 5, in 2 and rolled up a 50 footer about 6 inches just left of the hole, for a tap in birdie. I drove the ball well and my iron game improved immensely with the 11 greens in regulation. I chipped ok to get it up and down 4 out of 7 times. I only hit one bad putt all day, a 9 foot birdie putt on number 5 that I slapped at because of indecision.

The Bad: Nothing. The weather was even good.

The Luck Of The Round: I had one big break on the 14th hole where I hit a drive to the right and was driven even further right by the wind. The ball ended up exactly between two tree stumps and I had a clear shot. I had a somewhat restricted swing but had only 112 yards to the green. I choked down on an 8 iron just about down to the steel and took a nice little swing and punch it right at the pin, ending up about 20 feet behind the pin. I made an easy par. I had a brutal lip out for a par on number 4 that I was getting ready to pick out of the hole but with all the other putts I made I cannot complain.

Next Round: Back to South Park on Thursday.
