Got out for 9 around Northcote before work this morning Was playing putrid until the Par 3 6th. 

 

Mucked around with my grip hit a high wedge into it and while in the air was thinking "that's pretty straight how's the length" it landed 3 metres past the hole and spun straight back in. 

 

My second hole in one in 30 years, howver, both in practice rounds think I will have to wait another 15 years to get one in a comp.

 

Followed it up with a 2 putt birdie on the 7th (shortest par 4 in history) and missed shortish birdie putts on 8 and 9 to be 3 under for the last 4 - certainly helps the score.

 

If only I could rember how I altered my grip  :P

Stableford on a composite course of both front nines, 17 on the front with a couple missed chances and 17 on the back with 1 birdie but a couple single points to even it out. 34 in total and handicap stayed the same.

Thanks.  Ball striking was on song.  Almost an out of body experience. Hit 4 over on the front nine.  Then got a bit wobbly on 10 - 14.  Then put the foot down to par 3 of the last 4 including the last two in regulation.  I should've been swabbed.  :)

Yep.  By far.  The practice is working.  Work on the mental game is working.  It's all starting to click. At this rate, one day I might even become a "playa" like all of the cool kids.

 

Footnote:  In a "believe it or not" anecdote, two weeks ago I won a 9 hole comp at my club (21 points) but my handicap went out by one.  Golflink paired it with a 9 hole comp that I played in 2016 in which I played like a dog (3 points).  You can't make that stuff up.  :lol:
