Hole #7: Falcons Fire
The REDS made a nice BIRDIE
(5-4) with the win Saturday over Kansas City. They continue their consistent play of sub-par golf. If they could put some back-to-back good shots together, they could really take off. But, for now, settling for sub-par golf is still ahead of expectations. Expectations have certainly changed, though. They've especially changed with the unexpected Offense (1st in the National League) and unexpected Starting Pitching that's been a signature of the 2010 Cincinnati Reds. What's troubling them is their "pitching" wedge. They just can't seem to "pitch" it very well. They've been getting good shots off the tee. Their putter has been working pretty good, too. They've just had trouble getting from their long-shots to their putter, shanking their pitching wedge a few too many times. Anyway, -8 UNDER
through 7 holes is still great. Would really like to Eagle #8, though, and get to -10-UNDER.
After 7 holes (8-UNDER
If asked at the beginning of the year if we'd be happy with 18 Birdies (90-72), anyone would have said, "Yes!". But, I think now, we want a few more Eagles tossed in there. It's probably inevitable that we're going to Par or Bogey another hole, so we're going to need a few more Eagles (or a Double-Eagle) to make up for it.
