Well it had to happen some time, I finally had a par score for a round, OK 9 holes, but that is all I could play after work.
It happened at one of my favorite courses near home, Jack Tone golf. I had a rare day of light traffic and managed to make it out on the course by 5:30 pm. With no warm up I teed it up on the first hole with my R9 and hit it right down the middle into a 15 mph breeze. My second shot was an A wedge and it too was good to within 6 ft, I sank the putt and carded a birdie. I hit a perfect 9 iron on the par 3 2nd, and again another birdie. Of course I had to bogie the next two holes, so I was even through 4. I only carded one more bogie on a bad tee ball at 8. I went into 9 one over needing a birdie. Again I had a nice drive and found myself 140 out. I hit a nice easy 7 and placed it pin high to 7 feet. I must have looked at that putt from about every angle I could, took a deep breath, relaxed my jaw and hit a perfect putt right into the middle of the cup.
So, wow that is how it feels to shoot par from the blues.
Must have hit a streak because the next time I went out in Escalon I shot +1 through 9 and the in the Wednesday night league I play in I shot 30 on a par 27 with 2 doubles. So I had a streak of 27 holes with a combined +4, pretty cool.
I kind of feel like I did as a kid trying to shoot over 200 in bowling, it seemed to take forever to do it but then it seemed easier after I had done it once.
