Date: May 19, 2012

I finally teed it up for the first round of the season last Saturday at The Fairways Golf & Country Club in Warrington, Pa. I like this course because, at just over 4500 yards, it is an easy course to walk. The course has seven Par 3s and 11 Par 4s. It was in excellent shape and the weather was beautiful; a sunny day that wasn't too warm with a light breeze.

 The Fairways Front 9

My round got off to an ominous start when I topped my opening drive short of the ladies' tees. I recovered to hit my hybrid to just over 100 yards, then skulled my pitch shot over the green, duffed my chip then four-putted for a 9. The second hole hole was an almost duplicate of the first, except I hooked my tee shot out-of-bounds and skulled a bunker shot into a marshy area. Back-to-back 9s to open my round. The next two holes are Par 3s and I managed a par and a bogey, before again hooking my tee shot to the left for another double bogey. I hit my tee shot at the 284-yard Par 4 5th Hole into the creek, but recovered to walk away with bogey. I missed a short par putt at the 168-yard 7th Hole, but blew my tee shot at the 8th Hole way right and three-putted for an 8. A par at the 133-yard 9th Hole left me with a 51 on the scorecard for the first 9 of the season.

 The Fairways Back 9

The second nine started like the first, with a semi-pulled tee shot and a duffed chip for another double bogey. But then my game seemed to settle down a bit, although I still had problems finding the fairway on the Par 4s. After another bogey at the 11th Hole, I made my first birdie of the year at the 150-yard Par 3 12th hole, rolling my tee shot up to three feet. I missed par putts at the next two holes, then parred the Par 3 15th and Par 4 16th. I closed out my round with bogeys at 17 and 18 for an inward 39, only 6 over par. That left with a total of 90 for the round.

 My birdie hole--Par 3 12th Hole

I was extremely disappointed with how I hit the ball off the tee with my driver and 3-wood. It alost like I never went to the driving range the previous two weeks. I was either hitting duck hooks or hitting it thin off the heel of the club. My chipping and pitching were also very suspect as I left several shots short of the green. I did, however, play the Par 3s extremely well, making a birdie, 3 pars and 3 bogeys. And my putting was better than I thought it would be, although I did miss a few short putts. It is still early and the only I am going to bring my game around is practice and play rounds.
