Very disappointing first round

I had a very disappointing first day at The Masters. I was struggling on the difficult greens of Augusta National. My putting is letting me down the last couple of weeks. Instead of putting on instinct and feel, I’m thinking too much when I’m over the ball. 

Today I made a couple of 3-putts, the one on 13 was extremely disappointing. I had about eight metres for eagle after a good second shot, but I walked away with a five. That was a stupid mistake. 

Unfortunately my long game isn’t up to standard either. I can’t get the balls close enough to the hole, that gives extra stress on the putting. 

Of course I still hope to make the cut. Last year I started with an 75 and I made the weekend, eventually finishing 26th. Let’s hope I can make one long putt early in the round tomorrow, that could be the turnaround on the greens I need.
