VA Golf 4/7 +7

Today was my 21 round. It was the second week in a row, that I was able to play late on a Friday afternoon. Teed off at 4pm it was 62 degrees, sunny but windy. I was rushed to started and I was able to squeeze in front of a threesome that was about to tee off. I hit an 8 iron into the wind that was long and right of the green. I then hit a bad chip that was short of the green, followed by one that went over the green. I putted from off the green, but was 6 feet short and luckily made the putt for a double. I hit a decent drive on #2, followed by a pitching wedge, that was just short of the green. I putted from off the green to 2 feet and had a tap in par. On #3, they moved the tee box, and the hole is now playing about 140 but you have to clear the trees. I hit a decent 8 iron and I was just short of the green, I again two putted for a par. On #4 they moved the tee up and to the right, in a position I do not care for. I hit a good driver followed by a 3 wood and I was 65 from the green. I hit a sand wedge that was 15 feet from the hole. Missed the birdie, but made the par for the 3rd in a row. On #5, I hit a good drive, and then a wedge that was just short of the green, I putted from off the green and it went 5 feet long and then I missed the putt. On #6 I hit a good drive but in the left rough. I hit a 7 iron just short of the green, and again putted from off the green, this time I left it 5 feet short and then missed the putt for a second bogey in a row. On #7  I hit a 7 iron pin high but three feet right of the green. I two putted for par. On #8 I hit a great drive but in the left rough. I then sculled a wedge over the green. I attempted to chip onto the green and it ran into the bunker. My bunker shot flew the green. Chipped back on and 2 putted for a triple. On #9, I hit a great shot on the green, 15′ from the hole. My putt had the distance, but I missed the birdie and had a tap in par for +7 with 5 pars, 2 bogeys, a double and a triple.
