Today's conditions were tough! Wet, 25 mph winds, and light rain here and there. As challenging as that was my mind tried to break me. Fighting myself and trying to play golf swing and not golf. They say golf is 90% mental and I will confirm that is a true statement. Most of my bad days on the course were due to letting bad shots take over how the round would end.
I'm embarrassed to say that my front nine was not pretty with 4 penalty strokes (water and out of bounds) I made the turn with a nasty 44 and 8 over par. Even though I was disgusted I regrouped for the back nine. I wheeled off 5 pars in a row before a slight bogie hiccup. I followed that up with a birdie after hitting my drive in the water for penalty stroke number 5, and drove the next green and made a 10 ft putt for eagle. The final hole was the toughest I've ever played it, and unfortunately I lipped out for par and finished with a bogie to fire a back nine 1 under par 35.
All in all I'm satisfied with the day for several reasons. My strong mental finish to grind out the round and we didn't get rained out for once!
