Stableford on the captains course and playing crap, it was one of those days when I either got an easy par or struggled to score a point. It must be time to stop riding in a cart and start walking the course again with the cooler weather and at least I can stay warm and keep some sort of tempo going.
Today I had 25 points and not much to say except I did get a NTP but it’s time for a tuneup and get the handicap down.

Round 4 of club championships and on the captains course and started on the back nine with a 3 putt bogey but followed up with a birdie and had everything thrown in from there on and finished with 43 off the stick. The second nine was similar and finished with 43 off the stick for 86 nett 75. I was hitting a few fat and blamed trying to sneak a look at where I was hitting instead of watching the ball and I need to work on that and see what happens. My handicap is now 9.5.

Stableford on a composite course of both back nines and started on the captains course and started with a bogey and followed up with a birdie and seemed to scramble at times but finished with 20 points on the nine. The second nine was going ok till I had a bogey and wiped the hole and scrambled the next couple holes but finished with 2 pars for 16 points on the nine for a total of 36 points and my handicap has dropped to 9.1.

Stableford on the presidents course and started on the back nine for something different and off 10 today. After getting a BCC ( basal cell carcinoma) cut off my back and getting 12 stitches I had to take enforced break for nearly 2 weeks but the stitches came out on Monday and I went out yesterday to practice chipping and blow the cobwebs out.
Today it was good to see a little break did not hurt my game and I had no wipes but 1double bogey but 2 birdies. The first nine was the back nine and finished with 18 points. The second nine was the front nine (if that makes sense) and I struggled at times with the wind off the tee but finished with 21 points with a birdie thrown in .
I finished with 39 points and hopefully a drop in handicap.

Played Canadian 4somes yesterday and not much to crow about but we did not finish last. Today was 2 man aggregate stableford and I had 33 points with a wipe but did chip in on a hole for birdie and 4 points but a couple of single point holes and not enough pars was the story of the day. Single stableford tomorrow and hopefully I can play close to my handicap.

Stableford today on the captains course and shotgun start and I scrambled all day or so it felt and finished with 30 points with 2 wipes . I was hitting the ball ok but not scoring like I would have liked. I took the 5 wood out and replaced it with a 4 wood but that was not the problem today it was just a couple of bad shots that crept in and I was not aggressive enough with my short game at times.
Next game is next Sunday playing pennant.

Winter pennant today and handicap pennant and had to give 2 shots, I played generally crap but on a crap day weather wise it was going to be a long day. I could make excuses but today was not my day and I can use it as warm up for the next few days ahead.

Don't worry Mick, you'll never be invited to play scratch pennant.

Only when everyone else has been laid low by a dodgy vindaloo and they will ask Iron Mick to play instead of giving the other team a walkover .

Played at Shepparton the last 2 days playing in a Senior event and at least I was consistent and had 91 nett 81 on both days with a few good holes and lots of crap holes but I can’t blame the weather or the conditions but maybe it was just me playing bad golf at times.

Played 2 days at Tocumwal in a Senior event and the crap continues , I shot 92 and 87 but maybe the crap is out of the way and proper golf can begin.

Played handicap pennant on Sunday and kept the streak going and lost 3 and 2 and played at Shepparton and changed how I played a couple holes and put them in the memory bank.
Stableford yesterday on the captains course and a scratchy 30 points with 2 wipes. There were some good holes and some bad holes but too many bad holes outweighed the good holes. There were some holes where I have to start to change my approach and give myself some full wedges into the greens and easy 2 putts.i will try to make some changes and go from there.
Pennant on Sunday and see if I can break the streak.

Played handicap pennant at Toc on the captains course and gave my opponent 14 (fourteen)shots and was hoping to Hang in as long as possible. I was lucky today to play well or maybe he was not playing well but after 9 I was 4 up but luck stayed with me and I won 6 and 5.
There were some good points I can take out of today and hopefully this carries on in my next couple of games.

Stableford on the captains course and still not playing to my handicap and scratched out 30 points today with 1 wipe and too many single point holes. The driver was behaving today but just seemed to scramble all day. 15 points on both nines.
A tune up next week hopefully will sort some stuff out.
