So...let's just start by saying that the Nautilus started and finished today's round without taking any unplanned detours.

 

Good win Gob.

 

33 points...1 wipe...you know the hole without me telling you... Highlight of the day was the approach shot into 1 to 7 feet...and missed the birdie putt. Only pars on 1, 7 (sand save from the left bunker), 9 and 11. I think that whilst it will flag, it will ultimately end up one point shy of dropping me from playing off 16 tomorrow..still likely to be off 17.

 

I'd like to make some claim around managing my handicap, Mouldy-style...but the truth is...I'm not that good.

 

...which scored me my first magpie win on that hole in my time at the Frog. Pretty certain I've won the same thing on the 17th at least once.

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.

 

Good times.

 

Stress free 4bbb at the Frog tomorrow, Beacy on Sunday.

Super Coach actually showed me how to play out of the Frog bunkers. They're verging on unique in Melbourne. Makes it hard for visitors and also very hard for locals when they travel.

The biggest issue with the bunker on 6 at Heidelberg is there is virtually no room between the front and back bunker. I hit a good shot out of it...and it still rolled into the back bunker. And then hit an even better shot out of that one but still just rolled into the fringe. The other scary bit about the shot from the front bunker is the big window in the house just behind the green. Get a little bladey....SMASH.

 

It's a pretty stupid hole.

Its not a stupid hole. Its bloody ridiculous. Who ever came up with that between design needs rooting in the face.

Thankfully not a hole that comes to mind. There was BMans 1 inch drive and that's all I can really remember from the round! :) Oh and Deege cranking out LD I think.

The hole in question was the one being built at the time...so you've missed out on that little nugget of pleasure.

Its a pity the eastern freeway couldnt have gone through just the 5th and 6th. It would have been an improvement. In other news i read goldy’s ‘nugget of pleasure’ while eating breakfast. I now have a nugget of nausea.

4bbb par at the Frog today.

Finished at plus 8 - probably not good enough to win, but a fun day nonetheless.

Beacy tomorrow.
