MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (Aug. 27, 2013) -- It was moving day at the 2013 World Amateur Handicap Championship as players hoped to capitalize on the beautiful weather across the Grand Strand in Round 2.

With groupings for Rounds 3 and 4 on Wednesday and Thursday being slotted on scores, golfers tried to go low on Tuesday to get into one of their flight's leading groups.

Your's truly did the exact opposite of that...

Still, I won't let poor play define my experience as the true story of the World Am shined through Tuesday, despite a tough day on the links.

I was fortunate enough to play Myrtlewood's Pine Hills course with a great group of guys. While it would have been great to throw out a number, the experience has been ideal, no doubt.

Tuesday's 19th Hole Exhibit was another success, proving that the organizers' focus on improving the nightly shindig was well worth it. Golfers and their guests were treated to a 'Taste of the Carolinas'.

Well, wish me luck for a better effort on the course tomorrow. My flight will be taking on Carolina National. We'll have more updates throughout the week.
