Pretty happy to have performed well, given the conditions.   Putting wise, I felt was very good for distance.     A couple of chips were terrific but I did bugger a couple.   Overall I can't complain as I've landed another all time low handicap of 7.6.   Flagged the round    :)    Just can't land a win at an OOM as I lost on CB for both the A grade and best stroke score.   Desperatly unlucky. :(

Luckily you spelled it wrong...I have copyright on that!!  :P

Tis very quiet in here Frank !

 

I see you have a free run at getting your handicap down with 5 "free hits" before your next flag drops off now.

 

Time for you to reach another "Lowest ever handicap" I reckon buddy ...... with your highest flags currently sitting at played to 9.8, 9.6 and 9.5.

 

You just need to get a couple of 36 plus points over the next few rounds and that 7.6 will be a thing of the past.

 

I have faith in you Frank .......... so just get out there and do it. :D

Yeah, thanks Gaz. My last game was the OOM as I was on night shift last week and wasn't going to Northern on the Monday. As it turned out Northern stopped our guys from playing because of the weather, so only 13 bothered to drive all the way back to Southern. Looks like I was better off....yesterday was Mandalay and Growling Frog is as far as I'll go for a game on that side of the river. (Only occasionally too)

Anyway Yarra Yarra next Monday morning so I might need to get out to the range later this week just to "groove the swing" and mess around with some 9 iron, wedges and half wedges to get some confidence for those shorter holes.

Geez you were good to watch at Sandhurst Frank.

The closest thing to a blemish i can recall was the 3 putt on our first hole of the day.

Everything else was just so solid.

That up and down on the par 3 6th was a thing of beauty.

I still get emotional when I think about it.

I seem to recall you have a liking for Yarra Yarra.

 

Nice course, and as you say, the shorter shots need to be on song to hit all the greens and particularly in the right parts of them. :)

Ha ha.....nice of you to say, Carson. I must say I did visualise the spot to land it and it was spot on. Must have been all that practice on the practice green when Mick was giving his speech. ;-))

​Stableford at Yarra Yarra today.   First time I'd picked the clubs up since the OOM at Sandhurst.   Playing off 9 today as we were of the white markers.  Greens weren't their usual standard and a little bit bumpy, so I did leave a few putts short.   I also decided to play my opponent in the Scratch Matchplay...as he graciously declined when we played his course (Eastern) the other week, saying it wouldn't be fair.    He was off 6

 

Multi tee start just after 8.00 am, but as we were playing a match, we got to play from the 1st hole.   As we tee'd up a large rain cloud crossed and it rained heavy for about 5 minutes.   After that it cleared and it was perfect....no excuses.

 

1st - Par - Win the hole

2nd - Bogey (after duffing the drive) - Halved

3rd - Bogey (after chipping close for 3 and my partner conceded it for the match.  I reached across another's line and missed the putt)  Halved

4th - Par - Halved

5th - Par - Halved

6th - Bogey - Lost hole

7th - Bogey - Lost hole

8th - Bogey - Lost hole

9th - Bogey - Lost hole

 

So 16 points (43 off the stick) and 3 down in the matchplay.   18 putts

 

10th - Bogey - Lost hole to a birdie

11th - Par - Lost hole to a birdie

12th - Bogey - Won hole (as my opponent 3 putted after rolling back off the front of the green.  He asked me if I had conceded his 2nd putt and unfortunately I hadn't and couldn't return his favour)

13th - Double Bogey - Halved

14th - Par - Halved

15th - Par - Halved (Match over as I was 4 down with 3 to go)

16th - Birdie

17th - Birdie

18th - Par 

 

20 points (38 off the stick) and 15 putts

 

So 36 points and 81 off the stick

 

10 FIR

8 GIR

9 pars or better

 

A ball DTL as there were 3 scores 40 + and one B grader had 46!!!!!!

 

Not too unhappy about the loss in the match as my opponent played well and didn't stuff up until after the match was over.   Another flagged round which has me now at 7.5.   (Another all time low.)    Gotta love golf.
