Golf National Tournament Journal: Putts a Struggle


Arthur Leonard

May 16, 2013 - Brevard Community College freshman golfer Arthur Leonard is competing along with his teammates in the NJCAA Division I Men's National Championship Tournament in Lubbock, TX this week, and is relating his experiences in a daily journal. Here is his second report.

For Wednesday's second round of the tournament my tee off time was 9:09 a.m. We had breakfast at Chick-fil-A around 7.30 and then headed to the course.

When we arrived it was windy and cold, it made me feel as though I was back in England. The course was again in nice condition but playing tough because of the wind. The greens seemed a little bit faster on Wednesday and with the strong wind it made putting very tricky.

I shot a 75 on Wednesday and I feel I played well, just struggled with the putter. Hopefully if I can play the same on Thursday and hole a few more putts I can put together a good score and help the team move up the leader board.
