44 and 44
16 and 17
For 88 and 33 points at Pacific Harbour in very nice conditions with a bit of wind
The course was in great condition and the greens were as fast as any I had ever played on

1 birdie 6 pars 7 bogies 2 doubles 2 triples

7/14 fairways - driver was a bit off a couple of time and cost me 2 shots from a bunker and from trees. But overall was pretty decent.

6 GIR - overall irons weren't too bad but cost me 3 shots a toed PW, a pushed 7i and a hooked 6i; the last 2 ending up in dead spots in bunkers

3/9 up and down - not too bad as the greens and surrounds were very tough today but still 6 shots dropped

36 putts - 6 3 putts today and every one was the first putt running well past. The greens were super quick today, which usually suits me but today they were 6ft longer not 3ft longer.

Dropped 17 shots
2 tee
3 irons
6 up and down
6 putts

The two triples on the back nine were particularly disappointing yesterday

The first was almost a carbon copy of the one at Royal Queensland where after a good drive my attempt at a 7i layup sliced off right and finished in the crap

At RQ it was water but at PH it was in a bunker against a rake where I had to stand on the side of the bunker and try and advance the ball 75m - I did but well left and leaving a very tough pitch off a lie with almost no grass that I caught thin and short with a lob wedge (I didn't have enough landing area to try anything else) and then my next LW chip was a bit left and I finished off with. 3 putt after blasting my first putt 6ft past

The other was on a par 3 - one of the toughest we play at 165m (very front) with bunkers everywhere and into the wind. I hooked my 6i and it plugged into the back of the bunker. I could only go out sideways and hadn't to build a platform. In what was probably the shot of the day I manageable to get it out and have a Texas for my next shot. That hit something and kicked left on a putt that I expected to break right but didn't so I ended up a long way away. And of course 3 putted after blowing my first putt well past!

I say that was the shot of the day because it was standing on a shifting platform with a plugged ball well below my feet, and I fell down the bunker face after the strike - well walked down it as I managed to keep my feet.

That shot was up against a PW approach on 18 that was 1 foot of roll off dropping in for an eagle. But due to its difficulty I'm gunna give it best shot honours. I couldn't have done any better from that position.

Just a shame to putter was so bad afterwards.

Coolangatta Tweed River course tomorrow with the SEQ gang. Always enjoyable playing the Cooly courses - scorable but can bite.

I'll need the driving to be reasonably solid. And I'll need to putt better than I did at PH.

May try and sneak a bucket on at the range today - will have to see how it pans out.

Started terribly today to be 6 points after 7 holes! Wiped 1 after being 156m out for my second shot into the par 5 - managed to thin my 7 into mud behind trees with water between me and the green and it was all bad from there. Then hooked a 5i into trees on 2 and couldn't get up and down for a point. Wiped 6 after needing 3 9 irons to get out of the fzirway bunker - and the 3rd one found wzter 140m away :(

Finished par par for 12 points on the front and made 19 on the back to salavge 31 but not even close to a flag. But 25 points and 5 over for the last 11 holes was good. Even better because it included a double after my gap wedge shaft snapped off at the hosel. Ball went mzybe 30m into a tree; head went almost 100 in a boomerang fashion making a weird noise. So managed to recover it but too late.

But not poo at least.

1 birdie 6 pars 6 bogies 3 doubles 1 triple and 1 pickup

4/14 fairways - drove pretty well and no dropped shots from the big dog. Only the aforementioned 5i hook cost me a shot off the tee. Made some very good strikes and long today, including LD on 18.

6 GIR - struggled all day with thin irons. Cost me 9 shots from bad irons and wedges not tee shots on par 4 or 5:
3 on 1 from that 7i
3 from those 9i's from the fairway bunker which should have been straightforward
1 from a hooked 6i off the tee on 7
LW on 12 after the broken gap wedge led to a double

2/9 up and down - not good and 7 disappointing shots lost. Mostly touch, no shockers. Couldn't get up and down from the sand but gave myself realistic chances on 2/3 of them.

34 putts - only 1 3 putt and sunk a few good saves for second putts but overall putting was way short after PH being way long.

Very very bad start - buf the last 11 were good scoring even though i wasn't playing it perfectly.

Wantima next week

Every week Gaz

The thins came from nowhere though - haven't hit a ball that thin at the range for yonks so I won't worry too much unless they're still hanging around at the range

Getting confident with my alignment is the problem I think - was setting up closed body and maybe getting a bit shut with the swing
