Yesterday was very frustrating. I didn't hit the ball great, but I did hit a lot of good shots. I just couldn't make anything on the greens. It was just one of those days. I only had 3 birdies in 36 holes. I had 3 bogies and 30 pars. I shot 73, 71 to tie for 6. 5-under won.
Meadows is by far my least favorite and toughest course out there. I believe its hole #4 or so, the longish par 3 that runs up the hill with woods right. Back in my HS days in the district tournament two years in a row that hole ruined my chances of advancing. In my Jr. season I got it down to two over and proceeded to take an 8. Then in my senior year I lowered my score by 3 to a 5. That hole killed me both years.
Highlands and Valley View are by far the easiest two courses at Weatherwax. #1 and #2 can be difficult holes on Highlands but with a dry golf course the holes have a little less bite.
