Last week No Three Putts went out and played at The Links at Madison Green in Royal Palm Beach, FL. I hadn't played in about 6 weeks so my expectations were low. Surprisingly I had my best round in about 10 years. Why did I play so well? My putter was on friggin fire! I took 29 putts. The night before I played I read an article about putting. It said for putts under 10 feet to look at the hole not the ball. Well in my mind you'd have to be out of your head not to look at the ball, but what I did was focus on the ball and the hole. Somehow it worked.
As for the golf course. The Links at Madison Green was in great shape, but not the type of golf course I could play everyday. Too many holes that a good drive down the middle of the fairway could actually penalize you on. Doglegs in every direction. I'd play there again but I'll wait until summer time when the rates go down.
If you actually care, I shot a 78. 42 on the front and 36 on the back. I was 2 under on the back nine going into 18. What do I do? Double bogey the last hole. Can you say choke?
