1st Round Play at the Open began today 11/4/18 in my Quest to capture the Grand Slam !
I started out a bit slow today with 3 pars but managed to make birds on the next 3 holes. Then I drove my ball into a giant bunker on #7 next to the lip,and caught the lip with my second shot coming out , it fell into the deep rough. I proceeded to make a bogey there. Pared the 8th and then on the par 4 ninth hole I had the wind behind me and I made a Hole in one for a Double Eagle ! Wow what a surprise that was. So I finished the front at 5 under 31.
On the back I was able to make 5 more birdies with no bogeys for another 31 and I finished up with a solid 10 under 62.
This was leading the event last time I looked but the players that qualified to play have 2 more days to play their rounds before the 2 ed round starts on Friday. So far there is one guy with a 63 one shot behind. With about 12 more players to play anything can happen , you just never know.
Update,,, One player has shot 60 , 2 shots better than me and several more at 63 in the first round , so it looks to be a very close match to the end. One thing is for sure , tough day with heavy winds in the 20 to 30 mph range will most likely separate the pack.
It;s been fun and I hope you enjoy my writing. More to follow after I play the second round so Keep them in the fairways my friends !!!
