Played the same course as on Friday, scores say I played better, but can't say I was left with the same feel. Fewer birdies, though fewer as high score holes as two days ago, but the fewer birdies also left the feeling of blandness, "meh, a par". Today was a hyzer-day, so many of the teeshots were far too hyzer-y. Probably not a bad thing if your line is meant for a hyzer shot, but for lines I throw, flat and fade toward the bucket, throwing hyzer right off the tee meant into the rough early. Long putts weren't working either, don't think I got any metal from outside the circle (sadly too much metal from front-rim bangers inside the circle ). Only that worked most of the day was upshots, kept getting drop-ins solidly.

Shot +10 my first time playing Sunrise DGC in Citrus Heights, CA. Really liked the course, played decent but not great (for me) most of the day. Birdied #10, made a couple of doubles (including a 7 on the 1009' par 5 hole). Lost a few shots to poor course management and/or trying fifty-cent shots in dime situations. Ran into a couple of "kids" in their twenties and played most of the round with them - they made me laugh often so that was a bonus. Looking forward to trying that course out again

It was bogie city day at Ace Pot, but after a 300 ft ace, no OB shot could phase me. Only shot -1 with 4 OBs and an ace. Rough round, but doesn't matter, had an ACE!

Came in 9th in intermediate which isn't great. But it's only my second tournament so I'm ok with it.

Rec round. Hit an ace but still ended over par on an easy course. I didn't hit a single putt outside 20-25 feet, hit OB a couple times, got a triple bogey on my "nemesis hole," and lost a Firebird. But hey, I finally got that elusive first ace! And drives continue to improve, even though my putting game isn't taking advantage of the opportunities.

Whenever i have these days, i just concede that its an "upshot practice day", and roll with it.
