Made a 1 footer on 18 for bogey and a 79 (first time breaking 80)... what are your milestones?
Last year I started a thread describing my heartbreaking 80:
Earlier this year, I was convinced that I broke 80 with a 70-something. After jumping into the car to avoid a deluge of rain that was upon me, I realized that I forgot to add up an entire hole on my scorecard, only to find out I had actually shot an 80, again. At that point, I was devastated and wondered if it would actually happen.
Well, today was the day! With a smooth outward 40 and inward 39, I shot a 79. I stepped on to the 18th knowing that a bogey would get the job done and I was able lag the 4th shot to within a foot. Tap in 79! Only 1 fairway hit (but 8-10 were within a yard of the fairway with rough that isn't very penal), 10 greens hit (2 others on the fringe) and an amazing, for me, 31 putts. Only lost one ball, as well (luckily, I had a miraculous chip-in on that hole to save par). Overall, the best round that I've ever played, obviously, and I couldn't be happier!
