101ST CALIFORNIA STATE AM GOES TO MATCH PLAY

Another beautiful day in Santa Barbara for golf at the beautiful La Cumbre, and the score once again were on the low side. I cannot ever remember a State Am cut as low as even par (actually two players missed match play in a 9 for 7 spot playoff) personally I would have been very disappointed if I shot even par 142 and missed match play. Tonight I won’t be talking much about my game as I withdrew after nine holes after my back seized up on the front nine. I am going to take a week off, and then work hard to get back into tournament form.

The young guns continue to tear this place up with length playing a big part in the scoring. The two bombers I played with both hit irons into both the par 5’s on the front nine. On the ninth hole I think they both had 6 irons into the uphill par five. The length will play a huge part in the match play segment of the tournament, and I predict one of the young college bombers will take this years title.

I look forward to the NCGA Stroke Play at Poppy Hills and the US Amateur qualifier, before I head off to play in the Senior Open at Turnberry. STAY TUNED for a photo gallery from the 2012 US OPEN.
