It was rough start I had today. I teed off at the 10th hole and had 3 difficult holes in to the wind to start with. I made a bad double bogey on my 2nd hole, when I hit a bunker shot 15 feet long and 3 putted from there. That wasn't a pretty start and I knew it would be a difficult day. On my 5th hole the real 14th hole I got in to a discussion with one of my playing partners, he was taking a drop after he blocked his drive in to a  lake. He wanted to drop much further up the fairway than where his ball crossed the hazard.

It was nice to shoot under par today in a marathon of a round. Again, we are on the course around 6 hours. We had a lot of rain for 1 hour and the temperature dropped drastically. It wasn't easy at times. I was playing well and had it two under after 12 holes. I teed off on the 10th, so I was the real 3rd hole. We waited for 30 minutes before we teed off on the par 3 4th hole. I hit a bad shot and ended up in the water.

I am doing a lot of good things, despite the 4 three putts today. It is extremely dissatisfying to shot 71 with 36 putts. The potential is a lot greater and I am certainly doing my very best to solve this. I felt I was on my way with the putting the last two days, but today was not good. I made 2 or 3 good putts, but I am missing too many putts. A lot of my putts are not even near the hole when the leave the club face. I also misjudged the speed a few times, which left me some long return putts. I will need to put in more work on my putting the next month.

It was a rollercoaster day on the course today. I was hitting the ball well on the range and felt like it was going to be a really good day. It all started very well, with two putt birdies at the two par fives in the beginning of the round. Then I made a big mistake on 9 and 10 and got punished with two bogeys. I lost the momentum and hit another bad tee shot on 13 and had to take a drop from the hazard. It wasn't much fun at this time.

I certainly didn't expect to shoot 67 today when leaving the practice ground this morning. First of all I think the course is pretty tight and tough at times, secondly I hit it soooooo bad on the range in the morning. At the end of the morning warm up session I was totally confused. The ball was going left and right. I couldn't figure out why, so I couldn't correct it. Just before I left the range to go to the putting green, I hit a couple of shots and all I thought about was keeping my body still when taking the club back and going through. It helped a little.

This was a very unusual day on the course. It started well with 1 under through 4 and I felt like I was getting good momentum. Hit a good drive in the middle of the fairway on 5. Went for the green in two on the par 5. It was a shot I didn't like, because I was standing below the ball for my second shot. Scared of hooking it too much, I blocked it right, the only place you can't miss this green. Tried a flop shot, which I hit fat and then had another difficult chip shot, which I left just short of the green, chipped it to 5 feet and missed the putt. DOUBLE BOGEY from nowhere.
