First round of the JFOCC
I have a 12:35pm tee time with Lorie Kane, and Vicky Hurst. We start on the front nine, where I start par, bogey. The first hole is a great opening hole, some 380 yds, where one has to hit a long iron to hybrid off the tee, lest your ball trickle over the edge of a ridge, and you end up with a short shot with a severe sidehill lie. I hit a 4-iron off the tee, and had an 8 iron into the green. I hit the green, 2-putted, and walked off with a par. It's a tough hole to start on, so I was happy. I then went on to 3-whack bogey the second hole, and then went on a barrage thereafter. I birdied the 5th and 7th holes, turned in at -1, and then birdied three of my last nine holes. I had seen Na Yeon Choi had shot 7 under, and when I finished my round, I was two back. I left a lot of shots out there, which gave me some encouragement, but I was still wanting to go out and prove myself the next day.
