Real brief. Last week at the Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic, after my one hour lesson with Ron Stockton, I set three (very lofty) goals for myself. In order for me to win the JFOCC, I told myself that I would have to
1. Shoot all four rounds in the 60s.
2. Break 200 through three rounds.
3. Make zero double bogeys.
Now I know that the third requirement I set for myself seemed like a no $hi+, Sherlock, but I had been having a DB barrage over the last several weeks. Between the two previous weeks, if I had removed my doubles from my rounds, I would have been in the top ten. Both weeks. Comical. But not.
Now, that being said. Let's see where I stacked up.
1. I shot 66-67-67-70. I failed to shoot all four rounds in the 60s. I thus went on and lost in a playoff.
2. I shot 66-67-67 through three rounds. That equals 200. I thus went on and lost in a playoff.
3. I made one double bogey, on the 55th hole. Stupid, stupid girl. I thus went on and lost in a playoff.
Now I am no prophet, just by seeing the layout of the golf course, and knowing how I was feeling, I knew what I had to do to win this tournament. It seems freaky, but I just knew... And came up just short. Nuts. ON TO THE US WOMEN'S OPEN!!!
