I'm going to reactivate my golflink next week. I can't even remember anything of where my flags are. But I will be hitting form just in time for that Nationals that I haven't put my name down for ;)

Certainly can be, but I must admit, I looked in your thread expecting to see if you'd mentioned it. A thing of beauty. :)

The quote is from Frank's thread, but given I haven't had a lot of good stuff to talk about of late, thought I'd document a few highlights from yesterday at Victoria GC.

After starting on the 2nd hole, after a double, then bogey start, got to the par 3 4th. About 140m, and I dumped the tee shot into the bunker short of the green. The pin was on the back tier, a 56deg wedge to about 5 feet and dropped the putt for a nice up and down par.

My favourite was on the par 3 7th hole. About 156m to the pin, with a 150m uphill bunker carry. Grandpa's corner on the left with a small opening to the green...if you can hit a fade...which I can't...at least not on purpose. So I said to Frank that I'd try to draw a 4h off the right edge of the front bunker to try to get as close to the opening on the left as I could. And whaddya know...that's what happened...and it ran up onto the green and finished 20 feet to the right of the flag. 2 putt par...but definitely my best shot of the day.

By the time we got to the par 3 14th, the wind had got up quite a bit. Lasered at 126m, all uphill, 3 club wind. It reminded me of the day at St Andrews Beach at nationals. So...minted a 3h...a club I would normally use from around 160m+...to 12 feet and dropped the birdie putt.

Finally, the par 4 1st...driver went about 160 into the wind and fell about 2m short of the fairway bunker...Frank's 3w just trickled in...then a 9 iron to about 6 feet and dropped the putt for a walk off birdie.

And that's all I have to say about that.

Except to say...the shot on 7 was farken awesome.

That's all.

It's the calling, the vocal nomination of the the intent of your planned shot, and THEN the execution that makes it so much more impressive.

 

Well done.

 

This does however support the theory of handicap manipulation ahead of Nationals.

It's a good theory...except those who have played with me will tell you with a great deal of certainty that I am in no way good enough to choose when I play well or poorly.

 

A day shooting to my handicap is like winning powerball just at the moment.

I think you must have lost the trail of breadcrumbs to Mouldy's thread and wandered aimlessly in here.
