Ha, they went directly to the naughty cupboard Rob (MP57's)

 

The MP32's were back in the bag today, the ones with the big wear marks in the centre of their happy little faces ( I think I found the middle at least twice today.... so that's a bonus  :D )

Update time from today's 3rd round of the club championships, and I was informed on the 1st tee by the Club Captain, that I was in for a relaxed round today (cause of my shite first two weeks).

 

I think it was his way of saying "Don't even bother trying cause you're so far back in the field it doesn't matter".

 

So, with his well wishes ringing in my ears, I proceeded to par the 1st, double bogey the 2nd, and par the remaining 7 holes of the front half ..... so I made the turn at 2 over, 38.

 

Onto the back half (no coffee today, although it was that slow I could have jogged home and made myself a coffee).

 

The back half of the course was something of a mixed bag .... 2 pars, 5 bogeys, and 2 birdies, for another matching 38. I was a bit more errant on a few, and a bit tidier on a few shots .... so it all evens out.

 

So 76 off the stick, (5 over), and no doubt that won't help me too much in the overall standings. Still it was a fun round, if not slightly painful.

 

The hip was playing up again this morning, possibly courtesy of 10 hours on my feet at work the previous day, and the pain was going down into the quad muscle.

 

So it wasn't much fun turning through the ball on every shot, given that the pain shot down my right leg to the knee.

 

Anyway, I got through it, and hopefully it will be slightly looser tomorrow. As it seems to be a day to day proposition though, anything is possible.

 

So, its the Beacy Invitational Classic tomorrow morning (post breakfast), and that's always a fun day, no matter what the golf is like .... :D

Update from today's Beacy Invitational, and it was yet another mixed bag in terms of golfing.

 

I think from memory I had at least 3 wipes, several putts burnt the edges, but the driver was pretty solid all day. The irons were rubbish, (plenty of missed greens again) my chipping was rubbish, and then the hip pain flared up, after I pulled a 5 iron on the 11th hole.

 

It was really good fun playing alongside Frank again, and Micky is always a fun playing partner. With Rees as our non playing 4th member of the group, it was a very enjoyable round despite the shite golf at times.

 

After 9 I was on 15 points, and not playing particularly well, but I managed to hit a couple of nice scrambling shots in between some crap golf, to shoot 18 points on the back half ... so 33 points, or 9 over for the day.

 

Highlight of the day in terms of the golfing was probably the 16th hole. I hit Micky's driver off the tee to about 10 out, but had pretty much blocked myself out of going for the green due to being down in the right rough. I hit a bunted approach shot up the hill, but it ended up in the long stuff, next to the pathway up to the 17th tee. Hit a lob shot down and onto the green, but 15 feet left from the hole.

 

I had the exact same putt that I had in yesterday's round (which I missed yesterday), but I couldn't remember which way the putt broke the previous day. It was only when I got up over the ball I remembered that it had slid to the right .... so I aimed a cup left of the hole and it curled in nicely for my par. No fairway hit, no GIR, but a nice mid range one putt ... stupid game this golf .... :D

Great to walk around with you today Gaz.   Great relaxed game and a day I really enjoy.....apart from the 3 putts.   I'm sure BEEF will be keen to have another "hit" at Beacy in the coming months, with his own clubs.

What did you end up scoring on the hole?

Pick up is a perfectly acceptable response.
