Florida Azalea ROUND 1

Okay, enough of the social political injustices of the world, its back to golf where we can forget about the worlds problems while trying to stay safe from COVID,

Today was a spectacular day in northern Florida, very similar to the great weather they enjoyed at “The Players Championship”

For those of you that watched the coverage and witnessed the frightening putting adventures of Sergio Garcia. The poor guy stripes it, but on certain days misses everything. Yesterday he was +3.7 strokes gained on the greens, and today was -3.7 putts. A huge change in his putting.

I can certainly feel his pain, but if perhaps he would try my new technique of putting the short ones with a sand wedge, YES a sand wedge. Today I used the combo of my STX putter on the longer putts and the bladed 60 degree sand wedge on the short ones. The only short putt I missed today was the 4 foot putt I had for eagle on the 5th hole.

Despite that I got the absolute most out of my round as possible. I didn’t hit it great, but took advantage of every opportunity I had today, resulting in a 2 bogey, 6 birdie 66. All the scores were not in when I left, but I saw only a 69 on the board.

Leads are leads and usually don’t hold up, so I need to continue to play well and execute good shots and think well on this golf course. This Donald Ross gem is amazing, with the smallest greens I’ve ever played anywhere in the world. If your in the middle of the green, you will always have a makable birdie or eagle try.

Stay tuned for more on the Florida Azalea

  1. Great opening round Randy. Your 66 was low round in the division; I always have a rescue club distance left for an approach on #5 (into the postage stamp); Play well on the weekend. Paul Daniels, St. Augustine FL
