Fun Front Nine at Mt. Si: Even Par

After being humbled at Chamber’s Bay on Tuesday I was happy to be back at the familiar surroundings of Mt. Si this morning.  Things started off well on hole #1 when I just missed a chip-in birdie and settled for a tap-in par.  A poor drive led to a bogey six on hole 2.  My chip on #3 hit the flag stick and led to a two-putt bogey.  On #4 I missed a 39-foot putt and then missed the 2-footer for par.  So after four holes I was three over par.

My drive on #5 was to the right edge of the fairway with a tree limb blocking my second shot.  I hit a low, cut 4-iron to seven feet and made the putt for birdie.  On #6 it was 5 wood, 8 iron to ten feet. I made the putt for a second birdie.  On the 507 yard 7th hole I hit two 3 woods and a sand wedge to 9 feet and made that putt for a third consecutive birdie, getting me back to even par.  On #8 my tee shot was well left into a grass bunker.  My chip from there went across the green to the opposite fringe.  From there I holed out with a putter from about 20 feet for par.  On #9, 3 wood and pitching wedge left a 43 foot putt which I missed by about 18 inches settling for par.  The back nine was very ragged with four bogeys and three pars book-ended by triple bogeys on #10 and #18.
