Day 2 of the TJGT Republic Regional Preview. Matt coming off an 82 on day 1 hoping to correct some mistakes and do better. Today he was grouped with 3, 17 year old boys who all shot about the same as Matt on the first day. It was a 8am shotgun which means we need to be at the course when the sun comes up at 7am.
Matt played better than day 1, shooting an 80 with taking a double on the final hole. I think he ran out of gas, on the last 5 holes of the day he took 7 strokes. He made several target / swing mistakes over those 5 holes and at 6800 yards your going to pay the price.
Overall a great first foray into “real” junior golf and Matt had a great time. He showed himself he is capable of competing and doing well. We shall see if he can carry his great mental game back to the Junior Tour and apply what he has learned. Stay tuned, River Hill is up next weekend.
