Having a game at Eastwood tomorrow morning. First hit since The National game, 2 weeks ago. I haven't played there in about 20 years, when my mate was a member. From what I remember it's fairly tight, so should be interesting. BBQ after will be good.

Yep Rob....the memory of it was pretty accurate.

 

Stableford yesterday morning off the white tees and intermittent rain throughout the day.   The 133 rating had me playing off 12 for the day, and the 2 tee start had me playing off the back 9 first. 

I don't think I was too switched on initially as I made a few sloppy chips early which resulted in wasted shots...and without a shot I was wiping or getting one pointers.   I was caught in two minds a few times as to whether hit my approach short and let it run up on to the green or fly it all the way.   In the end I fluffed a few and also left some short from good positions on the fairway.

 

First 9 - 11 points (two or three wipes?)

 

Back 9 was a little better .....and it helped that I had shots on about 8 of the 9 holes.   (Their index ratings are very unbalanced for the 2 nines, IMHO)  

 

18 points

 

29 points for the day and we really got rained on playing our last hole (9th)   By the time we got to the green there was casual water forming.

 

Driver was pretty good all day with 9 Fir

Only 2 GIR

Short game pretty average  

Putting pretty good.   Average was 1.5

 

Another slide with the handicap so now out to 10.6.........bloody chopper   :rolleyes:

Stroke round at Flinders on Wednesday off the blue markers.   Beautiful day for golf but got up to 35 by the time we finished and the breeze wasn't too bad.    Playing off 11 for the day and counting putts.   Course is a net 69.

 

Front 9 - 41 OTS with 16 putts.   Not bad considering I 3 x putted three of the first 4 greens. 

Back 9 - 39 OTS with 18 putts.

 

80 net 69 and 34 putts.    I had the same score as my playing partner (also in A Grade) and naturally lost the count-back.   Finished 3rd overall and runner up in A grade.

 

I got 8 POTY points to leap me from 14 to 10th position and in line for a money prize next week at the presentation dinner.

 

Handicap dropped .2 so finished the year at 10.4     Not a good year for form, I don't believe, compared to last year.   I did reach my lowest handicap during the year so that's something I can hang my hat on, I suppose.     No wins in the club trophy events so we move on to next year.

 

Next week is a 4BBB for our final golf day and then presentation night after.

4 Ball (Sh) Ambrose yesterday at Southern for our final day and Presentation dinner. Our group had an eagle and a few birdies but unfortunately a couple of bogies so finished a long way out of the placing's with something around nett 60. Winners had nett 54 something???

Only prize at presentations was $10 for finishing 10th in our FedEx (POTY) event, which ended up paying for next years stroke and doubles matchplay. Money was put on the bar so drinks were "cheap" and the dinner (3 course and coffee) and golf for $60 was pretty good I thought.
