David – I am a relative newbie too, with this year being my third trip to the World Am, but the one thing others didn’t mention is nerves. Even though we are not playing for millions, or on TV, I found for myself and some others I talked to, you can get nervous for lots of reasons – playing with people you’ve never met, competition, wanting to do well, wanting to shoot your handicap, etc. Add in all the factors above and for those with an accurate handicap its hard to shoot it even once in the week! So far, in my eight rounds at the tournament I have ranged from one lucky round of net 4 under to a net 20 over. And those were two days apart in the same week.
Best of luck, and just soak it all in! Its a complete blast.
