Today I played in the Final Medal Salvers. It was a slow start as there was heavy fog which meant we couldn't see therefore it was dangerous. Play was put back 40 mins which was really annoying as I was warmed up and ready to go! I played OK and shot 83 nett 73 which is 3 over which meant I went up 0.1 but I felt I played OK.

So, last year I won the Presidents Cup, I played in it as the holder this year. It was a lovely day today, I teed off in the afternoon so the sun was out however the wind was up. Before I went out I had over heard that a guy had already come in with a nett 60 so I was finding hard to believe that anyone was going to beat it. However, I went out positive even though I would have to shoot a nett 59, gross 69. But I knew it was possible as anything is possible! I teed off the first with my two playing partners and my head held high. I hit my drive about 230 yards up hill but it just crept into the rough on the left side, I had a decent lie and a 50 degree in my hands so I knew I could get it close and start the round on a positive. I stuck it 6ft under the hole, which is good as I left myself an uphill birdie putt, I holed it and started my round 1 under. I went on to par the 3rd and 4th then bogey the long par 4 4th but I knew I had a good chance to get a shot back on the par 3 5th which is a fairly easy hole. I put my tee shot 7ft past the hole which left myself an uphill birdie putt which I went on to sink (a bit of money, yes please!) which meant I was 1 under stood on the 6th. I hit a nice drive down the middle (260 yards) which meant I could try and hit the green with my second and give myself an eagle putt. I missed the green, short and left, chipped and 2 putted which is a good par. I then went on to bogey 7,8, and 9 so ended up 2 over gross and 3 under handicap front nine. I still fancied my chances at getting that gross 69 however I would have to play very very well to get close to it. I bottled it back nine and ended up shooting 88! NOT GOOD! but I can take some positives from today. Overall a great day!
