The morning started off great with warmups and I was feeling pretty good. This tourney I decided to enter into Advanced for the first time. I decided to try this division out and challenge myself a little more. I started out on the first hole ok but on the second hole, I ended up going double OB and carded a 7 for the hole. Ouch. I tried to shake it off best I could but I think I let it get to me enough to affect my game in the first round. I ended up finishing with a +5 for the round. I was definitely disappointed with my play for that round.
I took lunch and left and went to eat with a friend to clear my mind of the first round. I came back with a good attitude and ready to have fun no matter the outcome. I finished stronger than my first round at even for the second round putting me at +5 for the tourney.
I had plenty missed opportunities and know I could have performed better. I took a lot from this tourney and kept a good attitude throughout the tourney.
I had a great time and think the tourney was well ran as Basket Bashers got some nice coverage thru signage placed throughout the course and multiple shoutouts and the players meeting and award results. Thank you for always helping me by supporting my dream. I take my lumps as learning opportunities and look to only grow as a better person and golfer and look forward to the next opportunity to improve and perform.
During the first round I was able to put together a decent round with a -5. I took a couple bogeys during the round but strung together a group of birdies to put weigh those. I was nervous the first three holes which I feel is something I still need to work on for sure. I also was not putting my best which lead to a couple missed opportunities.
I went in with the same game plan in round two and executed it like planned. Finished round 2 with another -5 and the tourney with a -10. Round two almost compared evenly with round one as I took a pair of bogies but had a group of birdies. I definitely left a few on the course which would have secured the first place victory but overall I was satisfied with my performance. I ended up taking 2nd place in my division and finally think I may have the confidence to enter into the advanced division and give it a shot. I’m not sure if this tourney will put my rating as such just yet and I’m still undecided but I’m definitely thinking hard about it. I shot well above my rating both rounds and had an absolute blast!!! I was carded with 7 different, amazing guys that were a pleasure to be around all day. This was by far one of my favorite tourneys to date. Thank you so very much for all your support. I’m super prideful to be able to say that I still represent BB. 🙂
Started playing September 2016
Started throwing all gyro 3-4 months later
Played my first tourney in July 2017 which was the “Trilogy Challenge”. I took 4th in the Recreational Division
I played my second tourney in Nov 2017 which was “Dynamic Doubles” a doubles tourney. My partner and I took 1st in the recreational division.
I played my first “bag tag” tourney in January 2017. I took home the number 59 tag that day. I’ve since dropped that tag for that club to number 13 as of 4/28/18.
I played my second “bag tag” tourney for a different local club in February 2018. I tied for 7th but lost in a shootout and went home with tag number 8 and still until this day 4/28/18, I still have the number 8 tag.
I’ve traveled some and played courses in North Carolina such as Fontana Village Resort, Kiwanis and a few others in Tennessee.
I’ve also traveled to Tampa and played the famous “Cliff Stephens” and “Picnic Park”.
I’ve also played on FSU campus in Panama City as well as another local course at the “Oaks”.
So in total I’ve been playing for about 1 year 8 months
