9 at Heidelberg with Nello and the crew today...playing off 15 there I get shots on all except holes 5&6 on the front 9.
18 points, 14 putts, including pars on 4, 7 and 8. Wipe on the 100m par 3 6th...short into the front bunker...out of that into the back bunker...ended with double.
Highlights were some of the tee shots...I'd lost a little distance...which I can ill afford to do...by teeing up a little lower as I'd been getting the ball too high on the driver face. Went back to the "normal" tee height today, and...hey, whaddya know...the draw and about 20m of distance was back. Drove the short par 4 5th to within about 40m, took a little draw around the left treeline on 7 to about 85m out, and was less than 160 out on the 8th after hugging the treeline right with a little draw into the middle of the fairway...as far up that fairway as I've ever been off the tee.
Stress free 4bbb at the Frog tomorrow, Beacy on Sunday.
