Front 9/Back 9: Tale of Myself as 2 Golfers

This past week, I played White Clay Creek and experienced the greatest up and down of my golf game in a long time.  Unfortunately, the down was a big down on the back 9.  I shot a 101 which was the worst round in a long time and what made it more painful was my front 9 was a 44 including coming back from an 8 on the par 4 first hole. So what happened to cause a massive self destruction on the back 9 and why did I need heed my own advice I posted on this blog? (besides being an idiot?)

The Downhill Lie is an Uplifting Tale

Carl Hiaasen is a writer with 14 novels to his credit and writes for the Miami Herald.  With support from his publisher, family and friends, he decided to pick golf up again after not playing since his teenage years.  The journey is tracked in the book between chapters and diary entries dated by days since he started playing golf again.  The goal of the book and Carl’s golf game is the member guest tournament at Carl’s local course.

Not trying to dwell on the negative but if you are depend on miracles each time you step up to the ball, you are asking a lot of yourself.
