My first round today will be one I will remember for a long time and will grow a lot from too. I had a terrible start, triple, double and then a bogey on my third hole to be 6 over through 3 holes. I think in the past I would have capitulated at that point but today even I was surprised at how calm I was, my composure today throughout was incredible. I have come an awful long way on that front and will continue to work on it as I am really seeing the fruits.
I managed one birdie and pars over the next 7 holes to be 5 over with 8 to play. A poor club choice on my eleventh cost me a bogey and then a bogey one the long par four next where I hit a great drive, a great 3 wood and a pitch that hit the flag only to the spin away from the hole. Even that didn't make me lose my composure although I was now 7 over with 6 to play.
The old three birdies in a row trick then showed up as I chipped in for one before playing two beautiful holes for the other two. Despite pressing over the closing holes, no more birdies but no more bogies either as I closed out for a 4 over par 76. I was relieved it was all over as once again I was seriously hurting, but 4 over in that wind wasn't too bad.
So off to bed and up early for my morning round tomorrow to hopefully go low and stay for the weekend!!
