Played Par off 16 at Southern with Trol, old mate Gilles whom I haven’t seen in a couple of years, and new friend Eric, who plays off a similar handicap to our very own IM.
94 off the stick.
-4 at the turn and -2 on the way in to complete a -6
Drives weren’t too bad. Couple of shockers buy hey, that’s chopper level golf.
Woods, hybrids and irons were generally ok, once again, interspersed with a couple of shockers.
Chipping and putted suckedarse though.
Just couldn’t get comfortable with the short game, and generally my chips left me with a lengthy/difficult first putt, or if I got it close, I would miss a 3 footer.
6 shots more than the allotted handicap and most certainly put it down to a short game that had escaped me.
Really enjoyed the round though and despite the less than ideal score, still felt that I was generally striking the ball ok.

4BBB Stableford comp off the blues.
1st tee snap hook short into the left rough, just managed to stay in play. Punched it back out to the fairway, 70m pitch and 2 putt bogey.
2nd tee i topped my drive all of 80m into the rough just before the fairway, topped my 3 wood to 110m out, sprayed my pw pi high right, chipped on to 12 ft and 2 putt double.
Hole 3, big blocked driver onto the adjacent fairqay on the right into a fairly stiff head wind. 230m out and smoked my 3wd to 30m. Chiped on to 10ft and drained the putt for par.
Hole 4 160m Par 3, hookrd my 5 hybrid left of the green and somehow missed the water hazard, chipped across thr 30m on a severely back to front sloping green to 6 foot and drained the putt for par.
Wont bore you guys with too much more detail but suffice to say, i only hit 1 fairway on thr front and 1 gir on the 2nd 125m par 3 where i mishit and sprayed it right, bounced off a hillock, over a bunker and came to rest o n thr green 15ft above the hole.
I did manage to par 7 straight holes from 3 through to 9 and turned the corner on 39 shots and 24 points, 15 putts. I arsed my way through missed trees, just missing hazards lucky bounces. The two locals couldnt believe what they were seeing.
The wheels fell off on the immediate hole after as i dunked my tee shot into the water off the tee, ala Goldy at the 12th at Keysie. Reteed and landed on the back of the green. 35 ft downhill putt to 4 ft and drained the next for a double.
It continued along this vein for the rest of the round. 46 shots on the back 9, 15 points and 16 putts.
I did manage a birdie on the par 5 15th after hitting the flagstick at pace, and ball coming to a srop 2ft above the hole.
Final tale of the tape.
24 and 15 points for a total of 39, team total of 46.
31 putts including 6 from the fringe.
3 GIR foe the day
Really struggled with the big dog. 3 fairways all day. Irons were utter crap, i was either pulling or pushing my shots. Thankfuck my wedges and putter was on.
Golf. Weird game.
