1st Round Recap

Originally published June 12, 2008

No witty title tonight, sorry. Today was an interesting day to say the least. I made it on time to the tee at 2:42 pm Pacific, and conquered my first fear of the day, getting the ball airborne. Actually, I hit my first drive of the open right down the middle, then hooked my second shot of the day into the bleachers left of the green. Let the roller coaster begin. Actually, I used the bleachers to my advantage twice today, which was good because I am always the first to comment on that when I watch golf on TV. I made bogey at one (Tiger made double, but also shot 72, so I can't brag, shucks), and when all was said and done, 10 bogeys, a birdie (there was no shutout, apparently ESPN picked the birdie up) and shot 80. Overall, actually I'm a little disappointed, it should have been a couple of shots better. But I did learn a lot today that I will keep with me for a very long time. Despite the score, I am still excited to play tomorrow. Night...
