A week in golf is a long time....Deege.....Probably a NETT 82 on Monday.   :(    Never ever think you've mastered this game.

 

No danger of that for me any time soon.

​MM at Kingswood yesterday.  Stroke and count putts   Playing off 9 for the day and off the 10th tee.    No practice during the week and a course I always seem to put shocking scores in at.    Nothing changed yesterday...........

 

10th - Par

11th - Par (after chipping in)

12th - Bogey

13th - Bogey

14th - Double (after losing a ball of the tee)

15th - Par

16th - Bogey

17th - Bogey

 

So 6 over at this stage an playing ok.......

 

18th - 9 on a par 4......game over and basically a practice round from then on

 

47 off the stick with 15 putts

 

 

The right ankle was starting to hurt again on the follow through so I had the foot pointing to the target.   This was causing a lot of pulled drives so I only hit 3 FIR and 4 GIR

 

Our second 9 was consistently bad with 3 holes in a row where I 3 putted.   By this stage I just wanted the round to finish

 

49 around the back with 21 putts.....96 off the stick and nett 87 with 36 putts.

 

For the second week in a row I thought I was going to get the NAGA but managed to avoid it.   

 

Very disappointing and I suspect I wont remain at this handicap for very much longer.

...... Bummer Frank.

 

One thing you'll need to work out if you want to continue to play with a dodgy ankle, is how you can still transfer your weight, or just play them all off the back foot with limited if any weight transfer.

 

Either you'll need to align your front foot so that you're setting up closed, and pointing to the left of target at address, (to allow for the inevitable pulls and compensate accordingly) ........... or you may need to change your ball position to avoid "the pulls" if you are going to hang back with not much weight transfer.

 

A quick bit of experimenting on the range may help sort out which one is doable .....

 

Shame you don't get on well with Kingswood though, as its a great track I reckon. Funny how some courses suit us, yet other's don't isn't it? :)

Playing at Commonwealth tomorrow. Another course I enjoy and a stableford comp. After the last 2 very poor rounds I hope conditions will inspire me to turn the crap around. I had all good intentions of going to the range on Saturday or today but it didn't eventuate. Not sure if I'll throw the HG'S into the bag....might decide in the morning. Anyway the weather is going to be great so it will still be fun.

Well I arrived...had lunch and a beer....it was sunny with a light breeze.....course was in pretty good nick......played crap. Playing off 8 for the comp

Shotgun start on the 9th hole (Par 3) Bogeyed for 1 point......(No shot)
10th (Par 5) GIR and then 3 putted for bogey and 1 point.....(No shot)
11th (Par 4) Wiped for a 7
12th (Par 4) Bogey...2 points (I think)
.....as it went on I was finding ways of wasting a shot or two every hole and getting bogey or double. It got to such a point I think I only had 3 or 4 pars.

Back 9 - 11
Front 9 - 12

For 23 points and another relative 90's score off the stick. Didn't get the NAGA but I've been nervous over the last 3 weeks.

I put the old HG's back in the bag and hit a few skinny...even though they are longer clubs than the Mizzies. I definitely need a session at the range with them but I was enjoying hitting the ball a little further with each club. I think I'll stick with the experiment at this stage

Next week is Cape Schanck on Tuesday 30/5. It's a better ball event where you hit your partners ball off the tee and he hits yours. Then you both play your own ball and the best Stableford counts. I'm not sure I'll be playing at this stage unless I can find someone who wants to partner me. (Any interest?) One good/bad thing is it shouldn't be golf linked as I'm losing 2 good flags over the next two games, so it looks like the OOM wont see a change in the handicap.

Yesterday was basically a 4BBB stableford at Cape Schanck.    The only difference was that my partner had to hit my ball off the tee and I hit his.   From then on we played our own balls and the best Stableford score counted.    My 7.5 (GL) adjusted to 9 for the day and my partner was off 10.    We managed to avoid a wipe but our playing partners (which included Shreksm and his partner) whipped our bums and they had 2 wipes

 

Front 9 - 20 points   (Shrek's team 25 and 2 under)

Back 9 - 17 points   (Shrek's team 18 and 2 wipes )

 

So 37 wasn't quite good enough but it was a good work-out for Sunday.    I only lost one ball of my partners and driving was pretty good.   Hopefully I can retain some of this for Sunday
