It’s official. I’m playing in the tournament on Wednesday. The organizer said I was a 4, and it’ll be adjusted as I play. I expected him to assign me a 5, but I’m guessing that lately they’ve caught glimpses of my bad hours. Which is fine for me. I have some more confidence that I’ll make it past the first round. 🙂
Today started off poorly. My brain was all over the place and I wasn’t feeling my stroke. During a cool-off period Morris came over so we started playing. I actually did pretty well today. We played a lot of games and I’d have to check my notebook to see the final score, but based on memory, I think it was something like 13-10 him. I had some good runs and made some good shots – got some bad rolls and scratched a bit more often then I wanted. I also got lucky a few times with 2 kick shots, but I’ll take it. There were at least three games where he scratched making the 7 and he gave me the game because the 8 laid perfectly for the 9. I appreciated his confidence. 🙂 I was making those cut shots that was been the bane of my existence lately; although I still dogged a few too many shots – and once I missed my BIH shot to get position – and didn’t get that either. That’s just embarrassing. I suppose that’s why I’m only a 4 though. *sigh* Wednesday is going to be a tough day. Gonna need to figure out a way to eat something around 5 – something that’s not gonna weigh me down. I’m thinking protein shake, but we’ll see.
