Well, having wasted my efforts in all of the previous OOM’s on my former man Goldy, who frankly, has been one huge disappointment after another, in terms of his performance in the “ones that matter,” including his spectacular implosion at Sanctuary Lakes where he actually erected his own “vet screens” and shot himself in the foot after his first stroke on the course proper ............. for the upcoming Order of Merit Event at Heidelberg, today I’m introducing, and unveiling ...... “Operation Frank”. No other player in the history of OOM’s has failed to live up to expectations ... quite like our very own Frank. Time and again at each subsequent Order Of Merit ...... he has wandered into one clubhouse after another ..... to find the expectant crowd full of questions, only to deliver yet another disappointing dissertation on how “he was robbed” out there. We all know only too well, that Frank clearly over the journey, has had the potential to be a multiple major winner by now, yet for some reason, he has failed to really put it together in the high pressure atmosphere of an Order Of Merit event. Not this time. With 39 days left until the event .... I plan to assist Frank in reaching the peak of his golfing performance, and no stone will be left unturned in an effort to lift Frank over the line and onto the highest step on the podium come the Heidelberg Order of Merit, and I hope you will share in his journey. To that end, on the weekend I did a detailed reconnaissance of the course itself, and am plotting a hole by hole strategy for Frank to employ on the day. In the weeks leading up to the actual event, Frank will be gently weaned off all flat golf courses, and will instead, spend his time sequestered up at Beaconhills where he will train on all manner of lies, and sloping conditions. (Whilst up at Beacy, Frank will be housed in the Wasabipea suite, a classically decorated 70’s porn style cabin .... and bombarded with a continuous diet of Tiger Woods PGA Tour Victories through the 50 inch plasma). I figure if together, we can’t get Frank over the line in this particular Order of Merit, with all of ourcombined resources behind him ... then he will simply never win one ...... We all are so sick and tired of his “Best Player Never To Have Won An OOM” tag ......... so to that end, I encourage you all to contribute to this thread, with your ideas and suggestions for getting Frank over the line, this time out. He CAN do it this time around guys .... we all know he can, and. together we can lift Frank and his wallet over the line, so let’s all join together, and get Operation Frank underway with your thoughts and suggestions..........

I'm sure that the groundswell of support for you Frank is about to rise up ........ and will carry you to victory on the day. Count on us Frank ........ we'll get you there buddy, and we'll all take great pleasure in seeing you hoist the trophy aloft (we really need a trophy for each OOM event I reckon ....... not that I'm volunteering)

I hope you can do it Francie. Of all the OOM courses this one favours you most, So pleased to see Peaksy win at Sanctuary Lakes, he was the second best player never to have won an OOM. No doubt this course set up for his game. GPJ would suggest you take Francie around H Berg a few times and play course from white tees and blue tees so he will be ready for both possibilities on OOM Sunday. Its getting harder and harder to win an OOM with so many good players in each event trying to grab the title. Other in form players that Francie has to beat here are Ghettobandit LeftyTiges Goldback Robnewy (might be a HB member by OOM) DJCraig (will he be fired up here- you bet) Equipment Francie needs to borrow those Mizzys of yours GPJ. The ones he trialled at Lang last year. He put on a ball striking display.

I'll back Francie...do you think all this pressure is helping? How about we set up 6 challenges for the 18 holes at the berg. Frank excelled on the Regulation challenge against Stink. So maybe something to keep the mind away from the overall score, but mini challenges per 3 holes of the 18? I am hoping to have a hit on Sunday 14th April at the berg, so if anyone is interested let me know. I am in the Point Cook and happy to pick up someone from the area as well.

Inkosi, I think we should declare you our "Man on the ground", as you are playing The Berg in the very week preceeding the OOM ......... As a founding member, and now an integral part of Frank's team ...... could you give Frank an update on the course condition post your "berg" round? I figure that having you on board will give Frank the inside running into what to expect, and its worthy of at least a one or two shot saving for him going around.

CB, not a bad asessment, although I think you are doing Frank a slight disservice, whilst pumping up the tyres of some who may not handle the conditions .. namely ........ Ghettobandit, who is clearly a flat track bandit at best, andf I reckon, won't worry the scorers too much. Lefty Tiges ..... Although I do have a soft spot for Georgy Boy, I fear he has played his OOM one game too early. He could also turn up on time for the OOM event ..... which of course, would just ruin his whole pre-game routine. Goldenback .. He too shot his bolt already at The Berg I fear, and his committee duties on the day (like your's) seem to take the toll, and the focus away from actually playing the game. RobFagNewy ......... Is still trying to find something to wear I believe, and if he turns up in his predicted "beige ensemble", I expect his game to follow along the same lines. Unfortunately Robbie struggles with any hills type course, eg cast your mind back to his world renowned efforts up at Beacy, as well as his ongoing, and much publicised battles on Eastwood's slopes. Peaksy I figure this time out will also find himself at odds, due to all the calculations he will have to do when standing on a sidehill lie. DJCraig ....... who knows what sort of mindset he will be in come the big day. Can he put the past behind him, or will he spend the round with his nose pressed to the rule book. It should be an interesting day though .... but I think Frank, with his own set of tailor made and tweaked Mizzy's these days, is in for the OOM day to end all OOMs.

I can provide it for you Smergs .... in no particular order..... Eynesbury ........ Frank was robbed Growling Frog ........ Frank was nobbled Settlers Run ........ Frank came close Eagle Ridge ....... Frank was cheated out of it (a lot of that ocurred on the day) Long Island ... Frank came close but was beaten by a bandit Hidden Valley ........ Frank was sober Patterson River ...... Frank had to play in the dark Sunshine ........ Frank came close yet again but was let down by the piss poor course condition Sanctuary Lakes .........Frank came close once more, but had heat stroke at the time, and in fact, nearly died. I'll toss in Bendigo as well ....... when Frank was on his honeymoon, and may have had his mind elsewhere, as well of course ......... as nearly being starved to death by you and your brother in a blatant effort to nobble his otherwise great chances on the day.

Thanks Inkosi, you will be, and are, a great aquisition to the team. Further developments now ........ ........ and in our all out attempt to assist Frank in scaling his own golfing Everest, I can confirm the "rumours" that Team Frank are indeed in contract negotiations with sports science guru ...... Stephen Danks, (who's schedule has suddenly appeared to open up of late.) The rumours are indeed factual in basis .......... they "exist". I can however, neither confirm or deny reports that Kerry Kulkens, "Astrologer to the stars" has been approached to create an astrological chart based on Franks birthdate ... as to his chances of success on the 21st of April. Whilst apparently his Uranus is currently on the rise .... the full prognostication is yet unclear as to his chances on the day. More to follow shortly ......... I should let you know though ........ that positions still remain vacant on the team for the following skills. Frank's dietician Frank's massuese Frank's fitness and conditioning coach Frank's skills coach Frank's, stylist and finally, Frank's hairdresser. So,if you wish to apply for one of the above ........ please forward your resume to "Get Frank Across The Line FFS" ... and we'll get back to you as soon as possible
