Missed a 10 foot birdie on the first.
Made a 50 foot birdie putt on 2.
Made a 15 foot birdie putt on 3 (after hitting a wedge from the trees to 15 feet).
Made a 30 foot eagle putt on 5.
There I was standing on #6 at -4, looking at a ten foot birdie putt. Hit a perfect putt, but it lipped out. Mis-clubbed on the next hole (par 3), flew the green, and made bogey. Parred 8 and 9 to tie my career low on 9 holes at 33. Bogied the first three holes on the back to quickly get back to level par. Got on the island green par 5 #16 in two, made birdie, but follwed it with a 3 putt bogey on 17, and a shanked sand wedge approach on 18 that led to a double. Absolute choke!
I'm mental about going below par. I was this way for years in my attempt to break 80, and I always psyched myself out. I've only shot 3 official rounds under par, and can't really explain why there haven't been more. I'm sure there aren't too many people out there that feel bad for me, and I don't blame you, but my desire to improve has never gone away. I'm trying so hard to take my game to that next level, and I just can't get past the mid 70's phase.
