Last Saturday was 10-marker-ish.

 

I just need to do that again.

Matchplay semi at the Frog today, opponent Tim giving me shots on 3 holes (4, 8, 12).

1st hole...poor tee shot, good recovery, 2 putts (first from the fringe for par and win...1 up.

2nd hole...hit the green 2 weeks in a row...2 pars for a half.

3rd hole...clip the right side tree on the drive, end up off the green for 4...par putt from the fringe sits on the lip. Halved with bogeys.

4th hole...get my first shot...the less said about this hole the better...I win it to go 2 up.

5th hole, poor tee shot right, chip to about 6 feet, lip out for par...halved with bogeys.

6th hole...a bit of deja vu from last week...good drive, poor second shot, 3rd shot greenside in a sprinkler head. Tim near the tree right, into the garden bed (like Vince last week), can't find it, goes back to hit 4...does it again. 3 up.

7th hole...turn into a 2-3 club Northerly...drive to left first cut, hybrid to about 80 out. Tim in fairway, second shot short left near the bunkers. Both on for 3. Tim drops his 15 footer for par. I drop my 12 footer to halve.

8th hole...good drive to fairway, 3h, 3h to just past the tree right near the approach to the green. Tim giving me a shot here...is in the greenside pot for 4, out pin high for 5. I figure...putt. Which I do to the fringe from about 30m out...where I'm closer for 4 (with a shot) than he is for 5, he misses for 6, I putt to an inch past the hole on the par putt...4 up.

9th hole...both good drives, me 4h to about 20m out, Tim about 40 out. His wedge goes off the back, I bump a 7i to about 15 feet. Tim putts on, 20 feet past, putts to about 6 feet curling low. I putt to about 2 feet. Tim misses the bogey putt, I drop mine...5 up.

10 hole...into the wind still...decent drive but well short of where I got to last week, Tim in the fairway about 20m past me. 4h to about 80 out still. Tim in the greenside bunker. I put an iron to about 15 feet, Tim out to about 13 feet. I drop the par putt. So does he. Halved.

Here's where our hero starts to falter...sorry...got a bit Mouldyesque right there...

11th hole...poor drive into the garden bed right, unplayable, blah blah...back to 4 up as Tim is on in reg.

12th hole...my 3rd and final shot of the match...another poor shot into another garden bed, another unplayable..back to 3 up.

13th hole...I bogey, Tim pars...2 up.

14th hole...I'm on the front of the green in reg, poor first putt, leave the par putt on the lip. Tim also bogeys...halved.

15th hole...heel one off the tee...another unplayable...Tim ends up on the green in 4, I concede the hole as I'm a squillion from him and he needs to 4 jab it for me to have a chance...1 up.

16th hole...puckering effect well and truly in play...Tim hits his 3w into the garden bed left...where it proceeds to somehow bounce out and towards the green, ends up just short on the fringe in front...FFS. I hit driver, no cut and it ends of in the front left bunker. Out, and nearly drop the par putt. Tim poor chip, 2 putts and halved...still 1 up.

17th hole...both hit drives to the first cut left. I'm first, carve it into to bunker right about 60m short of the green. Tim pulls his approach to the left of the left greenside bunker. I wedge out of the bunker, but to the top of the green...pin is just in the front half, under the ridge. Tim pitches similarly, I'm about 30 feet away, him probably 25.
I putt the right to left putt to just down the ridge, about 2-3 feet past the hole. Tim goes a bit harder than that, and ends up about 7 feet past. He misses the return putt. I drop mine for the win, 2 and 1. Puckering may now cease.

I play John Boz in the final, another of the group that was with me on the HIO day. He's off 5...so I won't be able to complain about not getting enough start.

Pennant tomorrow, with McSnapperton back on the bag.

Good times.

Well done Goldy. I was thinking you were about to cack it but the 30m putt on the 8th convinced me you have what it takes to get the win no matter the pressures. So what happened on the 4th?

What I'm talkin about is a game... A game that can't be won only played...

The 4th was diabolical from both of us, Mick.

A half would have been fair...I got a shot, and won the hole with a very ordinary score.

We agreed between us to never talk of it again.
