Living here in Salt Lake is very nice. The seasons vary greatly and it’s one of the few places you can golf and ski on the same day during certain times of the year.
The problem is that the Winter layoff of several months just destroys my game. It has taken me about 3-4 months of playing to get my game back to decent shape. Getting back the short game is really tough for me, especially around the greens.
So I’d been a 2 handi last year and the higher scores this spring shot me up to a 3.8. Thankfully I’m now pulling that thing down and it’s back to a 3.0 now. Do you know how hard it is to go from a 3 to a 2? I got it to a 1 for about a month last year but I couldn’t keep it there.
The goal is to get to scratch but that is going to be tough. I need to post some low rounds for the next while. Even 75’s won’t cut it unless they’re the throw out rounds.
I really think I should be able to post some sub par rounds because I’ve been a birdie machine lately. If I can just eliminate (or reduce) the mistakes. Like yesterday I was even par going into #18 and shot 74. Mental game, mental game.
