Ok - looks like I am doing this whole race to beat Ironmuck all wrong.

I have come off a pretty bad trot of very mediocre scores, my run of flag-free rounds have expired and now looking at my best flagged round dropping off next, a played to 12.4 to be precise.

After this drops off, I have 3 rounds to replace my upcoming 3 flags in a row, a played to 13.3, 15.5 and 16.4

Aim here is to replace all of these with a played to 13, which means I need to step up my game.

Saturday’s round of 92 OTS equated to handicapping score of 32 points playing off 16, but with a 74 DSR, ended up with a flagged played to 16, replacing a 16.4, and consequently, not movement in my handicap!

I went back and recounted my putts and seems that I had mis-entered a few, and actually walked off with 39 putts for the day.
That leaves me with a Green to tee count of 53 shots, which is right up there with my average ball striking days. I hit most of the fairways, with misses not really being penal. Whilst I hit 5 GIRs, the approach shot misses weren’t too bad, leaving me anywhere from 4-30m from the green.

Main issue with my scoring from the weekend were my up and down stats, which had me at 0 up and downs. I usually jag at least 3 of these per round. All chips and pitches left me with at least 20 footer putts and wasn’t getting nowhere near close enough to sink the putts, and on the two holes where I managed to get it close enough, I had exhausted most of my shots getting to the green. Placed an immense amount of pressure on the putting, and whilst I didn’t putt too poorly overall, there were a couple of holes where I just totally screwed the pooch.
3 putt on hole 2 for a double bogey, dicey pin location which runs off the green if you miss.
3 putt on hole 7 for a triple from 7 ft, major brain fart moment.
3 putt on hole 17 for a triple, from 15 ft, also another brain fart.

Have set up a chipping zone in the back yard to get some feel and confidence back into the chipping. This should knock a few shots off the scorecard and have me signing in at 85 shots, and on the road to playing to 13 to replace the next 4 flags dropping off in the next 7 rounds.
