I'm pretty poor condition...::]

Telling the course that won't help your mental approach to the game. The course needs to hear you say you will tear it apart, and there is nothing it can do about it. The course is your biatch, treat it like it...

Yep - we chopped it good

None of us knew the course which didn't help but mostly it was a case of be pinpoint accurate or pay for it

I enjoyed the course. It evens everyone up as it's so short, and it's a real short game test.

I'd definitely go back

3 pars 9 bogies 4 doubles and 1 double and 1 quad on the last 4 holes after a lost ball and a completely stuffed up par 3 to put the icing on a tough round

More dropped shots on approaches than the short game for a change - which was a few bad hits and a sign of the difficulty if you weren't accurate

89 net 75 for 33 points at Twin Waters today off the whites, starting off 17 in a mini shotgun

Had 15 over off the first 11 holes for 16 points
Then came home with 17 points - 2 over - on the last 7 holes; just need to do that all the time

1 birdie 6 pars 6 bogies 3 doubles 2 triples

7/14 fairways - given the course was very short and lots of irons off the tee that wasn't a very good result - dropped 5 shots off the tee with a 4h hook into trees, a drier push into water and reload and an unlucky finish for driver on 16 my last hole into a deep rough where the ball was well below the surface - lucky to find it

5 GIR - irons weren't good until the last 7 holes - dropped 3 shots but missed too many holes with short irons and wedges; learned to play a bit short as the greens were bouncing through downwind

1/10 up and downs - very and but any ball off the green was often in gnarly rough and I struggled with length. 8 dropped shots with 2 being from bad shots and the rest distance control

36 putts - and the putter was cold again, with 2 3 putts and not a single decent length putt dropped all day - just wasn't on

Was very happy to turn the full swing around and start hitting good iron and wedge shots to greens. Was too many times leaving myself in poor position even with a short iron and wedge in

Handicap won't change but I've used up my rounds - 3 flags to drop in a row

Had a terrible start yesterday. Hooked my 6i into the rough around the greens and had the shoulder of the bunker to get over. First attempt with 54 went under the ball and stayed in the rubbish. Second was well struck but couldn't stop and rolled way past down a swale in the green. Then 3 putted up the slope with water still on the green. Set the tone for the first 11 holes - kept finding ways to mess holes up.

Then played the par 5 smart but did a Mouldy and executed my PW approach poorly leaving a 20+ metre Texas wedge instead of a possible birdie. Came up short again on the wet green and 2 putted for bogie.

Was a series of 1 2 and no pointers after that with results like gap wedges into greens that bounced through and ended up going 140m - i just couldn't seem to get value even when I hit good shots. Learned to play shorter was better especially with the wind where the greens were not receptive.

The rough was gnarly - really thick and growing in 5 different directions around every ball. Not my bag! :)

But the course is probably the best conditioned I've ever played - just immaculate and beautiful

Hopefully the turnaround in form for the last 7 holes sticks

A round of what could have been today a Time Windaroo. 17 back then 15 front and absolutely rooted the last hole on each nine for that 32
8 pars 4 bogies 4 doubles 1 quad on 18 (my 9th), pickup on 9 (ny last)

7/14 fairways - drove ok at times but lost 3 shots off the tee - C+ at best

5 GIR - 4 shots dropped from approaches or par 3 tee shots - C+ too

5/15 up and down with 3 of them coming on 18 with a FedEx OOB and then not up and down from my second go; chipping had some good moments and got down from bunkers twice, but a D+ at best

33 putts including 2 3 putts - misreads cost me more than misfits; had a lot of putts drop into the edges - C

Overall very disappointing. Only positive is that it did identify an issue with my swing and I will take that feedback. I should have played the swing I bought all day but tried to tweak it on the back half and that cost me quite a lot.

18 was a bit funny as I got my drive thin but it would have been just fine but hit a post maybe an inch wide and ricocheted into the trees :(. Almost recovered from there until the FedEx which luckily went over the groups waiting near the clubhouse.

Faced that today too. 

 

I so need to learn to 'play within myself' - it really saves a lot of wasted shots.

 

Looking back, how many shots would you have saved if you had just allowed for, or played the swing at hand today?
