i've been playing for about a year and 4 months and finally broke under par twice last week!!! Two rounds each scoring 53 at redan. It was a goal i had been working at for quite some time.

I shot my first under-par round after three weeks of playing (I got addicted and played ~3 rounds a day) during a monthly tournament. I banged a 45' putt to save par on the last hole to keep my 1 under status... and finish even for the tournament (and... I placed 4th).

But... I was fortunate enough to have Ultimate experience on my side and to have played my first round with some local pros who got me started on the right track (grips, x-step, putts, etc...). And, I used to play ball golf, so I understood good golf strategy.

I posted this a couple of days ago, but actually got my first under par round (-2) on Friday afternoon. Played 54 holes at Radcliff City Park and shot a 59, 57, and a the last round a 52!

I was so excited to finally get a round under par, thought I would update my post.
