VA Golf 8/5 – Even Steven

Today was my 72nd round of the year. It was only 60 degrees and wet from yesterdays rain at tee off this morning which was strange for early August. I hit a rushed shot on #1 because a twosome tried to get out ahead of me. I ended up pin high but 20 yards right. I hit a fantastic chip that was inside of 2′ and tapped in for par. I hit a solid drive but ended up in the wet thick rough on the right. I chunked an approach wedge out, but was way short of the green, I then hit another approach wedge to inside of 5′ and made the par putt. I hit a great 8 iron on #3 over the trees and on the green. I had a 15′ putt for birdie that had the distance but was left, and I tapped in for par. I hit a solid drive on the #4, that clipped a tree and I ended up taking an unplayable. I hit a 3 wood to within 20 yards of the green and then chipped on to within 15′. I missed the par putt, and tapped in for bogey. I hit a strong drive on #5, and again I was in the right rough. I flushed a PW that hit the back of the green and hopped over. I chipped on to within 6′ and made the par putt. I hit a 3 wood on #6 to inside of 100 yards. I hit a choked down PW to inside of 3′ and made the birdie putt. On #7, I hit a solid 7 iron that just missed the green left. I chipped on but was still 14′ but made the putt for par. I hit a 3 wood on #8 down the middle. I hit my approach wedge that hit the back of the green and hopped over. I then chipped on to 5′ and made the par putt. I hit a 7 iron on #9 that was near the trap but ended up 3′ from the green. I hit a good chip to inside of 4′ and made the putt for par to end up even for the round.
