Round 1 at Golf Club Praha,
Round 2 at Hodkovicke
Round 3 at Hostivar
Have to play all three rounds, I’m not sure about the scoring . . .
At GCP, they demoted me to B-Flight, my handicap has soared to 18.1, so natcherly, after a 3 week layoff, I play my best golf in 2 years . . . 9 pars, 7 bogeys, 2 double bogeys . . . no birdies or blow up holes, 42-39=81, 46 stableford points, so I win the B-flight, easily, and they lower my handicap to 15.1, which ought to put me out of my misery for awhile. . . 8^D . . . (in the A-flight) . . .
I’m just not sure how we’re competing in these three tournaments, in flights, or all-in-one, or what? That is, if I’m in the B-flight with the 15 handicap? Or I’m in two different flights for the Prazky Pohar? Can’t wait to see what happens . . . no way will I play so well again this year . . . 8^D . . . played the par 5s +1, the par 4s +7, and the par 3s +3 . . . had 3 3putts and just a bunch of 1putts, can’t count ‘em all . . .2 sandy pars . . . used the same ball all day, never hit a provisional . . . foozled one 3wood tee shot on #7 . . . the greens were running +2 for the normal stimpmeter, I assess, which is all to the good for me . . . I can get my putts on line, but I have to hit ‘em so hard most of the time to get ‘em to the hole I pull & push a lot when I start pressing . . .
My prize was amazing . . . a cigar cozy, with two pipes in it, one for a cigar and the other for my Armagnac . . . I mean, it made me tear up it was such a good prize . . .
So I will play my ass off in the next two tournaments, but I really think I have no chance to win now . . . I won’t play this well again this year, is my experience, to have all my game components working at the same time . . . 8^D . . .but it’ll be fun to be among the leaders going into the next round . . . 8^D . . .
