A 9-Hole Practice Round at Juniata

Juniata Golf Club
Philadelphia, Pa.
Yards: 4805, Par: 66
Score: Practice Round
Date: July 23, 2007

A family wedding took me out of town this past weekend, so I didn't get a chance to hit the links until today. I had picked up a cold over the weekend and it rained until early this afternoon. Once it did stop, I decided to go play a 9-hole practice round at Juniata Golf Club. I had been looking forward to playing all weekend, but when the weather didn't cooperate this morning, I should have just bagged the whole idea. I went back and forth as to whether I should go play, and when I finally did make the decision to go play, I didn't have any concentration or focus during the round and by the 6th hole, was really feeling tired. That caused me to make poor decisions and hit poor shots. I would have been better off heading to the driving range and hitting balls as if playing a simulated round or practicing my shot game.
