Chamber’s Bay

Seeking more of a golf challenge I got up early today and drove 50 miles south the play Chamber’s Bay, the Robert Trent Jones II course and the site of the 2010 U.S. Amateur Championship and the U.S. Open in 2015.  I’ve played the course five times previously, never with much success.  Even though I play from the front tees, the huge sloping, very fast greens present a serious challenge compared to any other courses I play.  My ball striking was pretty mediocre and putting even worse but I still managed to break 100 for the first time, finishing with a 98.  I’m encouraged because I carded five pars and seven bogeys.  Two 8s and one 9 accounted for fully a quarter of all my strokes today.  So I played reasonably ok except for those three blow-up holes.   I feel breaking 90 is a possibility.
