Day 1 of the 2016 STPGA Fall Championships from Houston, TX at Gleannloch Pines Golf Club. We made the trip down yesterday to get a practice round in and went over the details of the course. Pretty straight forward, nothing complicated. Up Saturday morning and off to the course and Day 1. Started the day with a birdie on #1 despite a less than optimal drive. Even par through 6 with 1 birdie and 1 bogey good round going, 3 easy holes coming in a short par 4 #7, and 8 and 9 both par 3s.
The par 3 #8, he pulled the club inside and put himself in a difficult position that required a very precise shot. He did not pull it off got frustrated some more and ended up taking a triple on a par 3 where he was 20 yards to the pin in 1. Made a par on #9. In a tie for 4th after day 1. Need to get it done tomorrow. Due to be cold and windy.
(EDIT) Day 2 of the tournament was cancelled due to “freezing temperatures and high winds” it is cold and it is windy, but we were ready and getting in the car and headed to the tournament when the txt came in notifying us. I think he was poised to make a move and was very motivated. Shame really, 2nd time we have been down for the Fall championships and 2nd time Day 2 has been cancelled due to weather. Disappointing end to the trip. So the day 1 scores are final. Matt finishes in a tie for 4th place.
