Shot a 65 on the front nine, including an absolutely hideous blowup on two holes where I was +13 That's right, +13 = 2 11s on a part 4 and a par 5. My goal is to play triple bogey golf but that was terrible even for me. It was all pitching and chipping and putting shots in the water. Ouch.
But after that I settled down and started getting back to steady shots in (and off of) the fairway, solid putting, and even some decent pitches. For the back nine, that carried me to a 53 which would have been better except for a slight blowup on the 17th hole.
We had a nice time on a beautiful day and now we're just hanging out for a bit before we go over to my sister's for dinner.
After that, we'll come back and I'll get going on finishing the Giant Panda story. It might require pulling a Lake (ie, 2K words in a session). But the time is there, so let's see if the words are.
