Got my 1st 9 holes in yesterday, typical up and down early round but generally speaking played well. As usual the rough was high at this time of the year and the grass is starting to go to seed in Northern Ohio so it was also thick. The rule of the day was to stay in the fairway.

Years ago, I read a Nicklaus article that suggested playing the first round of the season with only a five-iron and putter. I did that and had my best round ever up to that point. Always on the short stuff. (Well, I sure hope so)! Not uncommon for me to play the first hole that way, eons later.

Addendum: Thanks to J.N.'s A Lesson Tee for teaching me the game as a young punk. It helped me as both a player and a caddie.
