I'll bet money Warlord that you are talking about the Turkey Shoot in West Monroe?
I totally blew it up that day.
I caught some bad luck in the woods the first round on the orginal course, as well as some dirty kicks. A few times I was kicked hard in the shule where I had to dump out the side. I blew my chance for the three by missing a 20 foot putt on the 716 foot hole. I was pin high to the right past the tree and bounced off the chains. That was a sweet hole though. I also had one drive go a whole 50 feet....straight in the dirt. I couldn't tell you the last time that has happened.
At the highwater course I was playing decent but had some bad luck. On the 300 foot levee holes, I landed in the shule 10 feet from the basket but had no clear putt. On the hole with the steps cut out in the hill, I landed my drive on the fourth step from the top and missed my putt right. The very next hole I missed a jump putt low for birdie. I took a monster circle 6 on hole 3. I was going to throw a low skip through the small gap and wacked the tree to the right. The next hit yet another tree, and the very next went OB on the parking lot.
I ended up placing low in 10th. I was one stroke off out of the payout.
I did not like the clear tee markings on the levee, as well as the unclear tee markings in the woods on the original course. Overall, the course was fun and had a pretty good variety of shots. My rocs took a beating as well as my confidence. I hope no-one gets West Nile from all of those mosquitoes.
Overall, all of my mistakes were COMPLETELY mental. I got in a bad vibe that I couldn't shake, and put myself in a very negative state of mind. I picked up for a short amount of time and ended up playing a halfway decent round despite that circle 6. I deserved my place low in the rankings because I didn't have the mindset to win.
I learned hard from that tournament, and hopefully next time I'll be able to stay in a positive state of mind no matter what happens.
How did you end up doing Chris?
