Morisset Pro Am Round 2
After the 2nd round of the Morisset Pro-Am I have shot a score of 69 (-3) with a total of 2 under to be T8th. The afternoon tee times were delayed 30mins due to the morning fields 1 hour delay this morning due to wet weather. Greens were flooded. I certainly did it believe we were going to be playing today but we got through without a drop apart from the 1st hole. Due to last nights weather today’s round was preferred lies through the green and all bunkers were out of play.
Starting on the 16th, a par 5 I went driver driver green side and missed a 3m putt for birdie and made bogey due to a missed drive out on another fairway not making up and down. The ball striking from then on was very rusty back spinning a PW 10m after landing pin high on 18th making par, nine iron in to the par 5 1st finished in the greenside bunker. Taking a free drop I made up and down for birdie.
Miss hit an 8iron at the 2nd hitting a chip to 2 feet making par and followed that up with a 3 play hole par 5 par. Some tee trouble bogey at 4 hurt. 5, 6 and 7 I all had chips around the green. Making par, birdie and birdie. Chipped in at 7 on a par 3. Almost holed out at 8 after a well positioned drive making par before another birdie ended the front nine hitting a 5iron punch cut to 3 feet from 137m in the trees. Certainly a nice stretch that came at the right time with the short game.
Another positive up and down par at 10 set me up from a potentially great result and I finally started to get my ball striking together hitting a par 5 under regulation using a driver 2iron combo, 2 putt birdie. Hitting 12 and 13 greens I could not drop a putt from inside 4m but a great save at the last cemented a great days result moving up 11 places from yesterday.
10 greens 25 putts. Nice day out with the putter. Overall a well run member friendly event. Thanks to my playing partners Ian, Ken and Glenn plus round 2 Barry, Phil and Bryan. Could not have asked for a better group of club golfers. Big thanks to Dave Stretton the head professional. Smoothest ran pro-am with tough weather conditions the course endured.
