Gaz, have you factored in the colour of shorts you wear and the impact it has on your round?

or is that not the determining factor?

 

Can't say that I have factored anything in Inky, nor factored anything out for that matter.

 

Coffee is however an issue, as the pro shop have been bereft of a working machine since xmas. Why they just don't get another one is beyond me. (If they can get the actual coffee beans all the way from Brazil, you'd think they could sort out a rental machine in Melbourne)

 

As for darts OB, its no issue.... if you got em, smoke em.  ;)

Update time from today's comp round, and it was something a little different today. We were playing the Hills back 9 and the Lakes course, (which may explain why good mate Bradley pulled the pin on the round overnight.)

 

I only realised it when one of the guys mentioned it on the way over to the 10th tee ... so I had to do a bit of "on the run" planning as I was ready to tee off on 1 as usual.

 

Anyway, it was a scrappy affair on the hills today, with a rusty start that saw some pars and some bogeys, and some burnt edges of holes.

 

By the halfway mark as we approached the Lakes course, the weather was certainly turning, and not for the better, as a wall of black cloud was heading straight for us.

 

I packed away the driver for the rest of the round, and "ironed" my way around the Lakes, as a driver, if not dead straight, really is no benefit on the short tight layout.

 

Again more bogeys and pars ensued, as did a few nasty downpours of the windy and sideways variety ……. only one birdie on the Lakes course, so pretty much a non event today.

 

I believe my score was 30 points in total, so 9 over …… and not too much fun out there this morning. Another drenching, and another post round laundry session trying to dry everything off.

 

Not to worry, it beats housework!!!  ;)

Update time once again, and firstly Sunday . started off reasonably, but faded badly after spitting the dummy.

 

It was 26 points or thereabouts, and I cared not a jot.

 

Oh, I did win the pro pin $$$ somehow ….. amazingly my mark must have lasted the whole day cause from memory …. I certainly wasn't within spitting distance of the hole.

 

Tuesday Stableford now ……. And a somewhat lack lustre start continued on for about 2 hours, when I made the halfway turn with the grand total of 13 points. (I am still missing my 9 hole caffeine top up)

 

The swing however wasn't feeling too bad for the most part, I just went and hit bad shots from good positions on course, such as putting two approach shots into greenside bunkers from about 120 out. I certainly shouldn't be doing that when the green is pretty much open for the taking.

 

Not to worry ….. I managed to turn it around a touch on the back half by shooting a couple under par, to finish with a semi respectable 35 points for the mornings efforts (a 4 over, 75).

 

T'was good to get out and play alongside good mate Bradley though, who continues to hit the ball very nicely indeed.

 

We would have made a good ambrose team today, as he was going great on the front half, and I went okay on the back half.

 

My next planned round isn't for another week now, as I'm working through the upcoming weekend, but a break might be just what I need to spark my golf up a bit …..  ;)
