Thoughts on the week –
First I want to talk about my goals. I completed 2 of them but fell a little short on putting practice. Excuses? None! There are no excuses in Project Awesome! The truth is, I plain forgot. This coming week I will write down my weekly goals daily on a note card and have them with me.
Now on to my round. I explained last week that I would post scores I am proud of and scores I am not. This is the latter! I had 2 opposite halves. 35 on the way out, 45 on the way back! First half was filled with average swings with pretty good results and a lot of missed birdie putts. Second half trying to do better swings with terrible results.
Lessons learned – Be confident of my ability. Swings don’t have to be perfect … just get the ball to the target.
Goal for next week – I will be posting these tomorrow!!
