Sorry to hear that Frank - weak stuff.

 

Think we may be using this word (Prick) around here.

Yeah, definitely a prick of a thing to do. (Brake fluid isn't cheap these days I believe)

 

You sure its not some sort of "fatal attraction" type scenario ….. from one of your many past conquests, Frank?  :huh:

Stableford at Royal Melbourne (East) on Monday.   Shot gun start but as I was playing my semi final of the handicap matchplay as well (much to OB's disgust :rolleyes: ) I was able to hit off on the second hole.   For those of you who don't know where that is....it's still a fair walk from the clubhouse.   With the rain that we had over night and the previous weekend I was expecting a little softer greens which might have been "slower".  Unbelievably they weren't and it was still hard to find a pitch mark from approaching wedges.

 

Anyway can't be farked going through the round other than to say I had to give my opponent 5 shots and 4 of those shots were on the front 9  :angry:  as the committee told me to go off the course index.  

 

Front 9 - 12 points (No wipes)

Back 9 - 16 points (No wipes)

 

Clearly a lot of one pointers and frustratingly a couple of 3 putts.

 

I was 2 down with 2 to play and won the 17th hole and then we halved the 18th.   Lost my match 1 down.   A little frustrated but that's golf.

 

Sunday is the OOM which hopefully I can get somewhere around the handicap.

Woops....didn't have much to say about the OOM, by the looks.   A little bit forgetful other than a birdie and NTP on the par 3 17th.

 

The game at Kingswood/Peninsula last Friday was a little bit forgetful too.....other than a birdie 3 on the par 4 10th and won the NTP second shot.  

 

Move on..........

Well those calls have been sorted.........

 

10th - Par 3 and # 1 index ?   Took out the LTBall and took a 4 iron into the wind and uphill for 153 metres.   Put a shite swing on it but got away with it being short and left.   Duffed the easy chip short again and then chipped it past the whole (above it) about 6 feet.   3 putted from there for triple bogey - Wipe  :angry:

11th - Par 4 - Par (1 putt)

12th - Par 4 - Bogey (2 putts)

13th - Par 3 - Bogey (3 putts) GIR just outside Madams NTP 

14th - Par 4 - Bogey (2 Putts) FIR

15th - Par 5 - Double (2 putts) FIR

16th - Par 4 - Double (2 putts) FIR

17th - Par 4 - Double (1 putt) FIR

18th - Par 4 - Par (2 putts) GIR

 

So 12 points (47 OTS) 18 putts  

 

4 - FIR

2 - GIR

 

36 & 47 for 83 OTS and net 73 for the day.  31 putts so "what could have it been"???? 

 

It was still fun, even though I "lost it" IM.   ;)

You've got a hotkey sequence for that, haven't you?

 

Going backwards is actually quite easy, just don't trip over.

It is quite easy and I didn't trip over.  But still fraught with danger.
