I’ve always liked fall golf but my scores have not usually been all that good once the leaves begin to cover the edges of the fairways. Things have been a bit different this year, though. This morning I shot a ho-hum seven over par 79 at Mt. Si, my second sub-80 round in two weeks. It was an unspectacular but very steady round. No long drives, no long putts or chip ins. Just eleven pars and seven bogeys. The short game carried the day for me. I hit just one green in regulation and two fairways over the last eleven holes but knocked enough chip shots close to get by with just 13 putts over that stretch. I’m looking forward to seeing where my handicap ends up with next week’s final update for the year.
