Back to Back 83's

Last Saturday my dad and I played Oakmont Golf Course up in Santa Rosa. I had a good round and shot an 83. In the round, I rebounded from a 44 on the front with a solid 39 on the back nine.

Today, at Cinnabar Hills with my neighbor Larry, I continued to play well, matching last weekend's round by scoring another 83. However, since Cinnabar is a more difficult course, this one was in my opinion more impressive. I was somewhat shaky off the tee, but my iron game was very consistent and accurate. And although I didn't make any long amazing putts, I only had one three putt.

This is how my round went:
1 - par 5 - I had a 5 - E
2 - par 3 - I had a 4 - +1
3 - par 4 - I had a 4 - +1
4 - par 4 - I had a 6 - +3
5 - par 4 - I had a 6 - +5
6 - par 3 - I had a 3 - +5
7 - par 5 - I had a 5 - +5
8 - par 4 - I had a 5 - +6
9 - par 4 - I had a 5 - +7
Front nine = 43
10 - par 4- I had a 5 - +8
11 - par 4 - I had a 5 - +9
12 - par 4 - I had a 4 - +9
13 - par 4 - I had a 3 - +8
14 - par 3 - I had a 4 - +9
15 - par 5 - I had a 5 - +9
16 - par 4 - I had a 5 - +10
17 - par 3 - I had a 4 - +11
18 - par 5 - I had a 5 - +11
Back nine = 40
Total=83
1 birdie, 7 pars, 8 bogeys, 2 double bogeys

As happy as I am to have played well, I know I can get better. If I can stay dedicated and make time to play and practice, I should be able to find my way into the 70's. However, with the price of golf being what it is combined with a full-time job and a baby one way, time will tell if I'm able to play enough to get my game to the next level.

But one things for sure. I love to play golf!
