I have a love-hate relationship with Course #2 in Roanoke. I enjoy the owners, the staff, the fact that they take good care of the course...but everything about the course drives me a little batty.
I have yet to post a decent result here, unless setting records for slides on rails is something I should strive for. I did get a few hours of practice, so I felt reasonable good at the start.
As the day went on, the temperatures rose to the 90s, tempers started fraying, and a mix of sweat, suntan lotion, liniment, and sadness seemed to fall over the course. Or maybe it was just the humidity and heat.
In the AM tournament I was relegated to cheerleader quickly as I parred Hole #9 in the first round through to Hole #6 in the second round. You can't get 15 deuces in a row at this level, especially in a three-round event. Played with Rick Baird and Gary Hinshaw; Rick had a nice roll and made the last hole to get into a playoff for the title (won by R. Johnson).

The PM tournament was pretty much the same. Could have gotten into the cash with a decent final round, but couldn't close the deal. Jeff Spainhour, rebounding from a tough morning performance, pulled off the victory.

Finished 2nd to last in both tournaments, which is disappointing and also doesn't feel like the level I played at. But the math doesn't lie...that's how it adds up.
Tomorrow I get a chance to rebound in a four-round State Major event. So we aren't done here in Roanoke...yet...
