Stableford todayon the presidents course and playing off the white markers with a daily handicap of 9. Istarted off with a par and missed the birdie chance but on the next hole I did get a birdie but followed up witha bogey andthen went par and birdie on the next hole where I did get a shot I wiped the hole. I finished bogey por and bogey for 18 points on the nine. The back nine was crap until I got my self sorted out but was too late and finished the last 4 holes with bogey bogey bogey birdie. I had 13 points on the nine to finish with 31 points. Handicap has not moved and overall I was happy with how I played.

Stableford on the presidents course and playing off 10 for the day , it was a day when lots of things went right and a couple of missed putts hurt the final score but a pair of 18s made the day worth while. I did have 1 birdie for the day but no wipes. A end result of 36 points saw my handicap drop from 8.3 to 7.9 and hopefully I can shave a bit more of my handicap.

Stableford on the captains course and playing off 9 , The front nine was a scramble at times and could only manage 12 points with one wiped hole and a couple of pars on holes where I did not get a shot. The back nine started better but a wipe on the last hole saw me end up with 16 points on the nine for a total of 28 points. AT times my ball striking was what I wanted but I was either rushing my shots or hitting the ball a bit thin. A couple more games before I play down at The National next week over 3 days.

Monthly medal on a composite course of the captains back nine and the presidents front nine and it's a par 73 with 5 par 5s. We started on the captains back nine and I finished with 42 off the stick. The second nine was a repeat of the first nine with 42 off the stick for 84 nett 75 and I am just waiting to see what the handicap has done.
I am playing at the National on Tuesday till Thursday in the Senior Amateur Masters and hopefully I can play within a few shots of my handicap each day.

Three days of playing at The National golf course in the National Senior Masters and I played the Moonah course Tuesday and played crap to finish with 97 nett 88 but had nothing to lose the next couple days and my game showed it. Playing the Old Course yesterday and had a day out and finished 84 nett 75 with 2 birdies on the front nine with 1 double bogey thrown in and 3 double bogies and a triple bogey on the back nine.
Today was back to the Moonah course and and I finished with 85 nett 76 and a difference of 12 shots between Tuesday and today.
Handicap started at 7.9 and after Tuesday it went out to 8.0 and after yesterday it moved back to an all time low of 7.5 but my handicap did not move when playing and was off 9 for the three days.

Back to earth with a thump but with the days conditions I was not too worried how I was going to play. We played a composite course of captains front and presidents back and I was playing off 8 off the white markers. Some days it's just easier to go out and enjoy the walk and not worry about the results. There was a couple pars thrown in and some good putts but handicap has not moved.

Stroke today on a composite course of both front nines and playing off the white markers and handicap was 8. I started with 2 double bogies and scrambled around for the nine to be 8 over the card and used all my handicap on the front nine. The back nine was a bit better and finished with 4 over the card on the nine but the damage was done early. Handicap was at all time low of 7.4 and with 4 days of golf over the long weekend there is 2 games that will affect my handicap and hopefully it won't slide too far.

After 4 days of golf in the Easter tournament there were 2 ok days and 2 crap days. Friday was stableford and finished with 27 points and 6 wipes, Saturday was 4bbb mixed par and we finished 3up, Sunday was stroke and finished 93 nett 84 and handicap had slid to 7.8 after Friday but today was 4bbb stableford and we finished with 46 points to finish 2nd. There were some good signs in today's game and no golf til next weekend.
