It's pretty disheartening to putt so poorly but my ball striking is decent so there is that. When I decided to get back to some competitive golf I figured I'd have some set backs but that doesn't make it any easier to stomach. I'll play another tournament in 3 weeks at Hidden Valley GC located near scenic Boaz, MO. Between now and then I need to relearn how to putt.
I've played Hidden Valley many times. My in-laws live in Springfield...Never shot better than a 86...Maybe beer had something to do with that.
always wondered why a nice course like that was in the middle of nowhere.
Its like a scene from Deliverance driving out there..
