I played the last two rounds of the weekend disc golf tournament today. In the first round, I did alright and was in third place with a one-throw lead over fourth place.
Unfortunately, I had a rather rough time on the pitch and putt course. I had practiced the first hole because I had difficulty with that one and usually can get it in two throws. In the round, I had an easy putt for two, but I missed it and took a three on the hole.
The next hole was a very easy short-distance hole, but when I threw off the tee, it hit the side of the hill and rolled a long way off. It was still possible to make a longer putt for two, but I missed that as well. To make a long story short, I took bogeys on the first three holes and ended the round with five over par. This put me one throw away from a third-place finish.
Oh well, I had a lot of fun playing in the tournament, and the people I met were very fun to play with. All in all, I had a great time.
Next week is the start of the fall disc golf league, and I'm very excited to play in that. My friend and son will be on the same card, so it should be easier for me to relax a bit and make a few of those putts, lol.
Additionally, if I ever have a tournament where we take a long break for lunch again, I think I need to take a few practice throws to warm back up afterward. When I eat a heavy meal, I have trouble getting started again and playing at the same level.
