Default Public Announcement....

Just wanted to let everyone know, I have officially finished my first round EVEN! Sure it was an Ace Run course... whatever. Don't steal my glory! I had about 5-6 birds in there and I was pretty proud. Now if it hadn't been for that 6 things coulda ended really nicely. Oh well. I'm back in the saddle!

Still fishin for that first Ace though.... came close but no cigar.

Congrats on your even. I guess this makes me feel better about my 9 hole evens and negatives considering my 'years played' count :P

So, congrats on that even round then. I'll cry tears of joy if I ever finish Castle Hayne even. Come close a couple of times but then I moved away.

Is that a challenge? I'm pretty sure I'm heading down to UNCW on Sunday. I'll report back with my results.

Congrats!

If you are hitting that many birds, then I would bet all you need to do to get in the negatives, is play more conservative when birdie is not an option and don't go for birdie when the miss will cause you more than a par. If you are this close to breaking par, it is all about playing smart and not trying too many shots that are not in your comfort zone. Go get 'em!

Thanks! See I was thinking along these lines so I played that same 18 again. finished +4... so no such luck. My BH seems to finally be getting more consistent (thank God! it was terrible before!) and I'm mostly a FH player. So I think that's helping me a good bit. If I could just get to the point where I can sink it inside of 25 feet then I know I'd cut my game by at least 5 or 6.
