If it wasn't for the walking which is what is giving me the most grief I would be fine. Swinging the club is not a problem and in fact I hit the ball really well today. I drove the ball great today, even better than at the Masters where I did a great job driving the ball.
I played a fairly uneventful and boring front nine with 8 pars and 1 bogey. It was solid and I just chose a wrong line on a short putt which cost me a bogey. Sometimes you should just trust that first instinct.
The back nine was much more eventful with 4 birdies and a triple bogey!!! I was playing well and three under for the nine when I hit my tee shot in the right rough on the par five 16th. I had an incredibly difficult second shot which I played ok but off the huge upslope and right to left slope, the ball went a little further left than I wanted. It was then that I got a little unlucky. The ball came down onto a cart path and went an extra 30m out of bounds. Tough break when the worst I would have made was probably a bogey but instead had to settle for a triple.
My mental game has come on so well that even an 8 didn't phase me as I went to the next tee looking forward not back. I hit a sublime 3 iron to about 14ft and rolled in the bounce back birdie. A par at the last for an even par round. I was happy to get through the day and to shoot par, even happier.
Lots of work to do though as that places me tied 135th needing to be top 90 after 4 days and top 40 after 6. Lets hope the body holds out, keep praying people!!!
