Well despite watching a nine game clinic from Matt McNiel, and feeling like I had a great arsenal with me, Team event didn't go well at all.

I couldn't get any of my equipment to slow down in the midlane and roll smoothly. That was my key to trying to control the lane condition, and I just couldn't make it work. Then I was stubborn, trying to make the outside work when I had no real shot. I finally moved in in game three, and then took a few frames before I got matched up.

I shot 151, 152, 191 for a 494 series; my lowest to date at the Open Championships. My spare game wasn't horrendous, but I did chop a couple makeables, and I had no doubles in the set to make up for the holes.

Tonight is doubles and singles, and I'm going to need a much better performance on the slightly easier pattern to rally from last night's disappointment.

Regardless of how I finish, its clear that I need some Pro Shop help. I tried asking a few questions of the guys at the booths and found most of them to be arrogant, antagonistic, and willing to listen or help. Eric at the Storm both, and Frankie May at the Motiv booth however were clear exceptions. Great help and service.
