Started well, birdied 2 then got on the bogey train at 4, with the occasional par thrown in.
Parred 13 after hitting a low 3w at it for 2 from the right rough. Figured it would be one in a million to hit the water with the ball flight, was trusting I’d miss the 1ft landing zone to finish in the water, it would bounce over and finish up in the ballpark. One in a million later, didn’t even hit either bank, just flushed it straight in. Drop, flop, tap in. Can’t remember the last time I didn’t birdie that hole, it’s my b!tch normally.
Birdied 15 and 16. Near holed it on 16 for an ace, ballsy shot left of the pin, limped home for a +5.
No ghosts used, kinda wish I did though. Will add one or two for R2 I think.
Started off 5 under through 8 and then ...a vf on 9. Way left but I hit a great pitch just on the green and stay pin high about 15 feet past the hole. I managed to 4 putt that! Momentum gone. Sad face.
Rest of the round was same old Augusta bs. I did birdie 11 should have 13. 15 I know that pin. You go long your @!$#ed you go short your @!$#ed. Laying up really isn't good because you can spin off the green. I go for it and just barely bounce on. Rolls off. Takes me 3 tries to get it up and walk away with a bogey.
Ended 1 under for my first round. Hopefully I can finish. I have to travel this week.
GL to all. Hopefully we don't see a 40 under at Augusta? I mean Magnolia 😉
