Really good round today!
Felt more in control of my swing than ever before. Hit a few drives over 220 yards, but I’m looking to find more distance still.
Shot +6 in the front nine, which is close to my record of +5. I followed it up with +5 in the back nine, starting with the best few holes I can remember playing. Par on 10, excellent birdie on 11, par on 12, bogey on 13 (hit the water, limited the damage nicely), birdie on 14.
As always, I struggled with the final 4 holes, unsurprisingly. At Cleydael, the course I’m a member of, the last 4 holes are:
- the longest par 4 (442 yards, stroke index 1) of the course
- the longest par 3 (230 yards) of the course
- the longest par 5 (530 yards) of the course
- a tricky par 4 with a narrow fairway and an approach shot over water.
