It's official, I think Adam Scott may have it at the moment!! Wow a 10 under par 62 around that course is one seriously impressive round of golf. It was incredible to be out there, playing pretty well and just watching him go lower and lower on the scoreboard. At one point whilst I was waiting on my 17th hole to hit our tee shots, he went to ten under and Murray my caddy said to me, do you think he is just going to start showing up on Thursdays to play without a practice round. He is a worthy world number 2 right now that's for sure!
I played really well today, very composed and well structured round that I probably let slip a little at the end which was a little disappointing. My front nine was faultless and despite turning in 3 under it really could have been a lot lower. I had great chances on 1, 2, 4 and 9 that I missed which would have been nice to add to the putts I made on 3, 6, and 7 for birdie. Still 3 under was a solid nine holes as the wind began to get up heading to our back nine.
I drove the ball perfectly down ten and hit a solid shot into the green but due to a slow player in our group putting our group on the clock (meaning we were getting timed for every shot we hit, and potentially penalised if we were to get bad times), I missed a short putt for par. Despite being quite disappointed at the dropped shot with such ease I ripped it down the 11th and once again found the green with a look at a birdie. Although not making it I did make one on the 12th to get back to 3 under. The wind was really starting to blow so getting back into the clubhouse was going to present some great challenges
Unfortunately I made a couple of poor choices and I made two bogies from them. On a day where Scotty is shooting 10 under I couldn't really afford to be making course management errors. Still 1 under was a very solid day and certainly put me ahead of most of the field and with the weather predicted for tomorrow, that is a nice place to be. I will need my A game out there tomorrow, hopefu
