I can have a big rant about groups and dropouts and grown adults who can't sort out their own shite and making a courtesy phone call on the day to say we won't be coming while other people are going to a lot of effort for them if you'd like Deege?

You did a sterling job under tough cond's & sadly the cat herder is once again a poison chalice in the scoring dept.

Nah, truth is I don't always play courses I don't know very well and I didn't hit the ball terribly well.  That is not really what it is about with the OOMs, though, it is getting the chance to spend time with mates and have a bit of a laugh.  And the Sandhurst OOM definitely delivered on that score.

You do know.....if you hadn't run into that tree, you may have had a better knowledge of the course.   :D  :lol:

Very true.  So I can blame that flinging flanging tree for my paltry return on Sunday.

Okay out today for a Stableford round at Rosebud.  Was playing off 14 for the first time ever and didn't have a clue which holes I lost shots on.  Turns out I had two on each side - three of the par 3s and a short par 4.  Did alright on the first nine managing 18 points with a wipe.  On the back the driver was less under control, and it led to a couple of wipes on the back, which I couldn't manage to get back from.\

 

I ended with 12 on the back and a total of 30 points.   That still might flag depending on DSR, given that my handicap is a lot lower than it has been.  Putted and chipped well all day and overall reasonably happy with my first outing off 14.  Wasn't outclassed by the handicap, and plenty to work on going forward.

Poor day of golf yesterday - just couldn't get anything going and, after salvaging a better than expected score on the front, it all fell apart on the back.  Driver in the naughty corner again.

 

I then met with my old coach and clubfitter to talk about irons and driver.  We spent an hour testing irons, after I explained that I wanted to move to a more flexible iron to enable me to expand the sorts of shots I can play with my irons rather than the super game improvers which just seem to be able to hit them high.

 

We tested a heap of different clubs and shafts and narrowed down to what I was hitting the most consistently.  Looks like Callaway Steelhead XR.  We tested a bunch of shafts and settled on one that was working the best - virtually all of the shafts we tested were senior flex, but there were different types so I don't know what we ended up with.

 

I have a 7 iron to have a play with on the weekend just to see how it goes in the wild before I pull the trigger on the purchase.

 

Judging on the numbers I will see about a 10% increase in distance, which is nice, but we were really talking about chasing a consistent strike and ball flight.  There were clubs I was hitting further but less consistently, so we steered away from them.

 

I then had a chat to him about my driver woes.  He put a couple of different drivers in my hands, but my fault was reproducing with all of them, so he suggested we still have work to do with mechanics before changing driver setup.   So we quickly looked at some adjustments to work on and hopefully I will see some improvement going forward.  I actually found it quite an interesting exercise to talk to two different coaches about the same issue.
