Today I play a practice round for this weekend’s awesome two day tournament. It’s one of the oldest tournaments around and the funnest AM: The Salt Lake Amateur.
Last year I shot my first round in the 80′s and pretty much shot myself out of the money. But on the 2nd day the course was set up as hard as it could be and there were 30mph winds. I somehow shot a 73 which was one of the lowest rounds the 2nd day. Even the pro asked me “how the hell did you shoot 73 out there?” That made me feel good. The 73 brought me back to 1 measly shot out of the money.
I’ve played in this tourney at one of my favorite courses for about 5 years and never placed. This year I can feel it. I’m going to be in the money. That’s the goal. I have no shot gross unless I can find a couple of 66′s in my bag somewhere. Not likely. But I just want to play well and get in the money (and have my name in the paper).
