EDGA Amateur Championship

Today was the first round of the EDGA Championship at Downing. I shot 79 and missed the first cut by two.

Despite that, I'm quite pleased. I chalked this year up to a "work on my full swing" kind of year and I can easily say I've never struck the ball better for 18 holes. My first drive carried 285. I hit a 4I 210 into a healthy wind.

What didn't work? The stuff I hadn't practiced all year. I made one putt outside of five feet. I didn't get up and down once. I missed five greens from 85-115 yards - all partial wedge shots for which I lack the proper timing (or trust) with my new swing.
