This may make me sound like a bit of a dick...but I struggled in the 1st round with 2 ugly bogeys(shanked one into the drink on the front 9). Regrouped a bit and limped in with a -10 for a 62. Somewhat happy..but should have easily been high 50's in the 58/59 range. Still battling tempo with Masters, but I'm gonna stick with them
edit: It's laughable how you can literally watch the server drop off as you play this game at certain times. Beautifully smooth in the 1st round and part way through the 2nd..then Fast and Very Fast swings started popping up almost like clockwork. Had to quit after 3 holes in the final round because every swing was Slow/Very Fast.

-28 under for 7th, and at least 7 strokes left out there due to bogeys and double bogeys. Approach game/short game is where I struggled, and missed at least two putts within 10 feet due to putting myself on slopes.

Okay, so after playing my first two rounds for week 2, I found the course a bit easier than the one we had last week. But looking at the leaderboard this morning, I am bit surprised about how much easier it actually seems to be: The early scores are very low, some really good shooting going on...
I stayed bogey free in round 1. Had a pretty slow start with -1 after 7, then a short boost with 5 birds in a row, just to finish with -1 through the last 6 holes. Somehow, that -7 felt better than it was, as I didn't leave that many easy opportunities.
My second round performance was slightly better at -9 (again, no bogeys), but this time I threw in some really bad putts and unforced errors, in particular on the back 9. In numbers, I was at a good -7 after 10 before losing track and adding 6 pars, just to finish with two more birdies.
Last week, I could improve in the second half of the tournament and eventually grab my first promotion mark. This week, I'll have to add two sub -10 rounds to confirm my last week's performance.
Alright! Fired a -29 for the week here in CCB! I know that won't win, there's some absolute monsters playing in CC-land these days. Had some real up and down moments this week, the course played more fun than I expected it to - I found everything to be 100% fair. I just didn't expect so many highs and lows! The course didn't wow me at first play, but I've really come around to it. It is a very well-made course. Kudos to the designer.

-11 through two rounds. Didn’t take care of the par 5’s and a few wayward shots cost me.
It’s a bit disheartening seeing the scores out there this week though and it shows a lot of people must have dropped down from Master clubs. Frustrating because I am reluctant to be forced to drop club set to potentially progress to CC-A.
Crazy scoring this week! Played a few practice rounds over the weekend and I’m nowhere near those top scores.
Will be playing my first couple rounds tomorrow.
I played several practice rounds and struggled too and was very concerned seeing the early scoring. I’ve played 3 rounds so far and I played much much better than any practice round. I think it plays easier than I was setting the practice round conditions. I think I’m -29 through 3 and never shot better than -6 in a practice round.
