Managed to fit in a couple of Nats games between work and family stuff. Thanks to Mads and the others for organising. And my partners Mouldy, Goldie, Deege, and Koiom. Lots of fun.
Friday Sanctuary Pines.
First 2 holes I didn’t hit a decent shot. Then got it together for 21points over the next 8 holes then fell away with some bad drives and poor short game.
With the changes to my putting grip and stance it was poor but not embarrassingly so. Left about 8 shots on the green. Lost about 4 on the driver
A bit tired and hungover. Thank God for the bacon roll. Again took me a couple of holes to start hitting the ball half decent.
Putting better again. About 4 x 3 putts. One 4 puttif you count Texas wedge. Goldy seemed to think I should. Fewer duffed shots. 102 off the stick but cap dropped .6 to 24.2. 3 putt on the 18th cost a decent placing.
Still not where I want to be but heading in the right direction. At least I played to my handicap today.
Highlights. Fairway bunker on 6 at The Pines. 135m 6i to the back of the green over water. Fantastic 4i went 170m over the green on another. Went too far but just felt soooo nice. But then skulled chip and 3 putts for a 6.
Need to continue the current practice on full swing short game and off course putting.
