Day 2 was different in many ways. First, it was hot… very hot. The two courses played much more difficult than Wild Wing, and with the accompanying heat, it just sucked the life out of you. I played Wachesaw East by starting off with my first lost ball and triple-bogey, followed by my first three-putt on the next hole. Finished with a 49 + 58(!) for 107.
I didn’t fare any better at TPC Myrtle Beach. We played their back nine first, and I continued lackluster play with a 59(!), but finished the last two holes strong with two bogeys. With the afternoon heat dissipated and an aspirin later, I found my second wind and completed the first nine with a 46 for 105. The heat affected everyone’s play, and there were many complaints of heat rash from the excessive sweating and chaffing. But the complimentary minty cold towels handed to us at the end of the round were most welcome — whew!
