I predicted the low score in round one of my club championship would be a 71. Sometimes I scare myself, and not just when I’m looking in a mirror. I was dead on. There were some 72’s and 73’s too.
So with my lame 77 I’m six shots behind the leader. I had three, count ’em, three, double bogeys. The final one my ball hit the fairway on a par four and I never found it. So if I don’t card those doubles, I’m tied for the lead. Yes I know. “If ifs and buts were candy and nuts we’d all have a Merry Christmas.”
Can I make up six shots during the 2nd and final round next Tuesday? Anything is possible. Is it probable? Not really, but I’ll try my best anyway.
