First round of the JFOCC

Thursday rolls upon me in a blur. After arriving in the parking lot, I scuttle over to the LPGA Fitness Trailer to get my right arm worked on and taped up. I have never felt anything in my arms to the point of getting taped up, and I was a bit sketchy, but I knew that in order for me to get my butt through the round, I would have to suck it up and play with the pain. The tape worked as a shock absorber, and it relieved me of some of my pain.
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.
