VA Golf 8/5 +3

Today was my 75th round of the year. It was in the low 70’s at 7 AM tee off. Conditions were good, sunny and a lot of dew on the course. I hit a 9 iron on #1 and it was short left of the green. I had a decent chip but it went 15′ past the hole. My putt was short and I tapped in for bogey. I hit my drive on #2, left into the tall rough. I then came up short of the green with a 9 iron. My chip was on the fringe and the putt from the fringe was short and tapped in for another bogey. I hit a good 9 iron on #3, that was short of the green. I hit a chip to 2′ and tapped in for par. I hit a decent drive on #4 followed by a 3 wood that was short of the bunker. I hit a lob wedge over the pin leaving 15′ for birdie. The putt was long enough but missed the birdie and tapped in for par. I hit a 3 wood to avoid the tall rough on the right, and then promptly hit into the tall rough on the right. I hit a strong 9 iron out of the wet thick rough that was short of the green. I had another decent chip to 2′ and tapped in for par. I hit the 3 wood again on #6, and found the fairway. I followed that with a pitching wedge that landed on the green. I had 15′ for birdie but missed left and tapped in for par. On #7, I hit an 8 iron pin high but left of the green. I decided to putt from that position of 4′ off and 33 feet total. I left it 8′ short and then missed the putt for par and tapped in for a bogey. I hit a perfect 3 wood down the middle on #8, and attempted to hit a lob wedge from 50 yards. I came up short left. I hit the lob again and cleared the bunker and left myself 3′ and made the par. On #9, I hit my 8 iron and it was a little long and left. I hit an ok chip that left 15′ for par that I missed and tapped in for bogey.
