4bbb stableford today on a composite course of both back nines and shotgun start at 0800 am start to avoid the hottest part of the day. We finished with 42 points and won a ball down the line. Two birdies for the day helped and a couple of bad holes tempered the result but overall I was happy with the day and finished with 36 points on my own.

Par today on the captains course and started on the 2nd and early start at 8am for the third day running for summer tournament. It looked like a long day after I wiped 4 the first 5 holes and then had a halved hole and followed up with 3 pluses and the day looked promising and ended up wiping the 17 th par 3 but finished with a half and a win on the last hole to finish all square for the day.

Stableford on the presidents course and started on the back nine first. Started with 2 pars but followed up with a wipe. I scrambled at times to finish with 18 points on the nine and when I started on the second nine it was a similar story but did not wipe any holes and finished with a par for 19 points and a total of 37 points for the day.
There were some good points in today’s game but at times the putting was not up to scratch and left a few putts short in the windy conditions. Sunday is scratch pennant and hopefully I can get putts to the hole.

Played scratch pennant (4bbb)yesterday at Benalla and my partner plays off plus 1 and our opponents were off 4 and 5 and on a tight course the home team had the advantage of course knowledge. We were 3 down at the turn but did get back to square. I halved a couple holes and won a couple but in the end their experience with the course got them over the line, there were some good points in my game and we combined well at times.
Wednesday is par and off the white markers and hopefully I can play close to my handicap.

Par today on the presidents course and started on the back nine and struggled for the first few holes to be 3 down after 5 holes with a couple of halved holes where I did not get a shot. It all clicked and I parred 4 holes in a row to be 1up at the turn.
The second nine started with 2 wipes but I followed up with two birdies to be back where I was at the start of the nine I then had 3 halved holes in a row but finished with 2 pars to finish 3 up for the day.
The wedge was being naughty at times but it may have been operator error that was the problem. One of the highlights of the round was hitting a wedge off the toe when I was 50 metres out and promptly chipped the next shot in for birdie on a par 5.

Played 2 man Ambrose over the weekend and 36 hole event. Saturday we had 71 off the stick on the presidents course and the best score was 60 off the stick on the presidents course. Today we played the captains course and and had 75 off the stick and the best score was 63 off the stick. Our handicap was 5.75 and we combined well at times but a couple bad holes did not help. No handicap changes.

Stableford on a composite course of presidents front nine and captains back nine and the par is 73 with 5 par 5s. The front nine was one of my better nines for a while and had 21 points with 2 birdies on holes where I did not get a shot and was 2 over the card for the nine. The back nine started off ok and then a crap display of putting threw my off my game for a couple holes. I did hit one of my longer drives for a long time then chunked a wedge in a bunker and stuffed the hole. I did finish with 4 pars and 16 points on the nine for a total of 37 points and a drop in handicap from 8.5 to 8.0.
There were some aspects of today’s game that show I could be playing off a lot lower but time will tell.

Stableford on the presidents course and shotgun start and started on the 4th and playing off 9 and I don’t get a shot on the first 5 holes on the presidents course and miss 4 in a row on the back nine. I started off ok and then had 3 pars in a row but followed up with 4 single points in a row when we crossed to the back nine. Not much was going wrong today but missed a couple chances. Handicap has dropped to 7.9 and hopefully I can nudge it down a bit further.

Stroke today on a composite course of captains front and presidents back nine with a par of 71 and off the white markers. Today was one of those days that everything seemed to be going my way with a bit of luck thrown in.
The front nine was looking good and finished with 2 pars to finish the nine playing to my handicap, the back nine started with a birdie where I got a shot but then had 2 bogies in a row where I did not get a shot then had a birdie on a par 5 and had an eagle chance but settled for the birdie.
It was looking good till the 17 th and I walked off with an 8 after finishing in a bunker with my drive and then chopped it up to throw the day away. The 18th was another crap hole and had 5 on the par 3.
I was within a couple shots of my handicap and had another flagged round and handicap went out to 8.1 ,after today I have played the last 6 games and had a flagged round.

Not a real implosion but 2 holes was enough.

Par today on the captains course and off the white markers and playing off 9. The front nine was a scramble and missed a couple chances but the wind was making it hard at times with putts coming up short hitting into the wind. I finished the first nine 1 down and was happy not to be worse but it could have been better. The back nine was similar and missed a couple of chances and had two wipes but managed to negate those holes with 2 wins and finished square for the nine to finish 1 down for the day. I should have finished better but butchered a couple holes with crap chips or bad putts. I have been using Volvik vivid balls after getting them as a Christmas present and so far I am not unhappy with them and my handicap has dropped again to 7.9 and 6 flagged games in the last 7 games.

4bbb stableford today on the presidents course and started on the back nine. We have played together in a few of these 4ball games and seem to gel well. We had 23 points on the first nine with one single pointer and one 4 pointer and and lots of 2 and 3 pointers. The back nine was similar with 2 single pointers and one 4 pointer but not enough 3 pointers. We finished with 43 points and might be lucky to get a ball.
Monthly medal on Sunday and a few games before a flag drops off.

Monthly medal on the presidents course and sooner or later a crap game has to creep in and today was the day. We started on the back nine and a couple holes I totally stuffed up and the high/low light was the shankslice on the 18th and walked off with an easy 6 . The second nine was not much better and a couple pars helped the cause. It was one of those days when you know a bad game is going to creep in and today was the day. I finished with 93 nett 84 after a 48 and 45 on both nines. There were some good holes that gave me confidence that my game is going ok.

4bbb stableford today and on the captains course and started on the back nine. The first couple holes were a bit shaky to start but after 3 holes we had 4 points then it clicked and we had 5 pars and birdie to finish with 21 points. The second nine was similar but we finished with 19 points and a total of 40 points.
There were some good holes today but a veterans tournament starts tomorrow and I have 3 rounds in 4 days of stroke and Friday is a mixed 4 ball event and hopefully I can play close to my handicap.
