New baby in the house makes a full 18 hard to get in so I got up at the buttcrack of dawn and got the $17.50 back nine rate at El Dorado Park Golf Course. El Do is a nice course and pretty challenging for a shorter course and I wanted to play it this week because in just a few days the pros will the Long Beach Open here and the greens should be good.
The Lb Open is a cool tournament, it is one of the few truly Open tournaments, meaning that anyone with $750 dollars can tee it up and give it a go. No qualifiers. Winner gets about $30,000 dollars so it attracts some good golfers.
I was able to play by myself so I filmed a Vlog with a tripod which came out really nicely, video of every shot up soon. Trying to play and film yourself is really hard. Mainly all I care about is playing well but I don't want to look stupid on my channel either. However I have determined to put up all my shots on the blog good or bad as I journey to be better than scratch so added pressure of knowing that every shot I hit will be published globally adds something.
I putted great, my wedges of all lengths need a lot of work.
