Things went really well (ok, fairways not belonging to the hole I was on saved me twice) until 15 when we had a bit of a putting hiccup. But a 27ft bird on 16 put us back in front. A brilliant approach on 17 put us within 5 feet of the hole for another birdie. 18 was our hole to lose… An absolutely horrendous tee shot put us nearly behind a tree way to left… thankfully a solid punch put us 140 yards from the green straight in the middle of the fairway. Nearly sank the birdie put but was a little strong going uphill, and had to settle for par.
Nonetheless, that sealed the round, our first and only win for the season, and a Tour card! 78.57% fairways, 77.78% greens… 7 birdies! for that final round.
I’ve set my PGA Tour to be full 4 round events, so it’s going to be much slower going for full results from here. Also the potential for much higher scores
First PGA Tour round start off brilliantly with a birdie… and then things got volatile, with bogies and birdies all the way to the 9th hole where I finally settled at even par. A poor start to the back 9 ended up setting the pace and I finished the round at +1 and in 33rd place going into round 2. I’ll be interested to see how the cut is implemented (might need to check and see if it’s a setting or just automatic).
I’ve set up outfits for each round too
