carmel-mountain-ranch-golf-00973 friends and I headed out to the very difficult Carmel Mountain Ranch golf course today and played a game of 2 vs 2 match play.  We had a blast, a fun and close match, my friend and I ended up winning the match 2&1 after a back and forth battle.  The team we played against actually works at a golf shop and do some teaching as well, so it feels good to compete against and beat some experienced players.

I hit the ball well and putted pretty good, I did have three 3-putts which is a disappointment, but every putt was either going in or burning the edges.  I missed an eagle on the 2nd hole by an inch, was dead center, but somehow it decided to stop going downhill!  No matter, I ended up getting an eagle after all on the Par 5 8th hole!  We were playing best ball style so it was hit your own ball for score and lowest score on each team counts for the match.

I’m very pleased with how I played…a solid (+5) 78 on the tough Par 73 track (#2 can be played as either a par 4 or par 5, we chose par 5 because we played from the tips).  It’s a funny thing to try and explain that I putted really well today, even though I had multiple 3 putts and 2 missed from inside 6ft, but I did.  Every single putt was tracking at the hole and the ones that missed either lipped out or burned the edges, every putt was struck solid.  If I can get my putts down from a 32 average to say 27-29 area, the way I’m hitting it right now, I’ll get that under par round.  That day is coming soon, I can feel it, and things seem to be progressing nicely in all aspects of my game.
