Well today was a tough and windy day on the course for me.
I was back on the Jones course and was the first tee time off. I had a really good front nine including 8 pars and 1 birdie. The back nine was another story...
Unfortunately, I had 2 double bogeys and 2 bogeys on the back nice. At this level you really can't afford to make as many mistakes as I did. I wasn't at all surprised to see that I dropped in the standings.
I was super disappointed when I walked off the 18th green today. But as I reflect back on my round my major mistakes were all mental. So I have at least identified the issue but fixing it is the hard part.
I am hoping that tomorrow I can minimize some of the mistakes that I have made the last two days. Most of all, I am going to enjoy tomorrow because if I ever make it this far again it will feel more "real". This time around I get to be here and just enjoy the experience.
So tomorrow I will take the approach that I always took as a basketball player: have a short memory and let it fly.
Sorry for the short post, don't forget I've still got final papers and exams to study for!
Check back tomorrow.
God Bless and Go Vols! Chessey
