OMFG!!!!!    :o   You did it again!!!  Where's Beef when you need him.   ;)

 

Beef managed it much more quickly than I did.  I was reduced to bashing it with a car jack iron against the concrete of the parking lot.  Of course after I got in, this was happening at 11pm so that I could rescue my pajamas packed inside my golf bag before going to bed.  No more key locks for me!

Even better when you imagine my two little old lady travelling companions already in their pajamas by the time I arrived feeling like they had to watch me from the doorway to make sure I could get into my bag, even though they couldn't really help.  Then we all had a nice cup of herbal tea and went to bed.

Seriously, what is it with you guys and sleepover pillow fights?  Jelly wrestling takes up quite enough time as it is.

Okay quick summary of the Summer of Golf.

 

Went for the annual tradition of playing a round with my Dad at his club Box Hill.  He was dead proud cause the lesson I bought him for Christmas the previous year had managed to get his handicap under 36 (to 35) for the first time in 5 years.  Started with a par and continued with one of the worst ball striking rounds I have played in recent years.  Adjusted gross of 98 so still beat Mick and my Dad off the stick.

 

Had a couple of rounds at Rosebud with various configurations.   Some semi-consistent play led me to getting a new anchor point just before Christmas.  Still two shots above my low anchor and have already gone out half a shot again since then.  But is fun to be a bit more regularly playing off less than 18.

 

Though round of the year so far goes to my effort on Saturday where I managed to salvage 30 points with 5 wipes, 6 pars and 2 doubles (off 16).

 

Am about due for another lesson as the driver is (largely) behaving itself.  Want to go and see what clubs I might aim to update this year.  Thinking new driver is a definite.  Logically I should update my irons, but to be honest, I am perfectly fine with the ones that I have, so don't know if I am that keen on spending money on them.

 

Time for another lesson and some more stuff to work on - my review of the year just gone is that I have managed to significantly increase my distance through most of the bag, just with swing changes.  I think my short game has improved (particularly putting in the second half of the year).  So I really hope that I can continue to get some consolidated movement on the handicap and define playing off about 15 as "the new normal".

So played yesterday at Rossdale for the first time.  I didn't find the course particularly thrilling though there were some nice holes.  I drove the ball well all day, but everything else was just a little off.  Only a couple of genuinely unforced errors, but lots of instances of just not getting the right result.  Found myself underclubbing all day, and it was obviously that I wasn't getting the run on the fairways that I expected.  But that meant that I was constantly scrambling to try and get two points.

 

Had a couple of wipes, no three pointers all day and a lot of one pointers.  

 

Only hit two bad drives all day - one on the first (inexplicably a "double dogleg" par 5 - one of the holes I particularly did not like) where I put myself under a tree without a swing which I proved by subsequently fresh-airing it.  One was on the 9th, an annoying long and narrow par 3 with overhanging trees - I very much dislike it when course designers try to make par 3s "interesting" by just making them punitively difficult.  Forced me to take driver which didn't work out well on a narrow hole with overhanging trees (!).  The provisional ball went in a similar direction but I managed to find it but couldn't get up and down for a point around the previously mentioned overhanging trees.

 

The score was a bit of a write-off, but it was a pleasant enough morning.

 

One of my playing partners suggested I really should have tried to hit my drive more to the left where there is more room and a better angle.  If only she had given that advice before I hit off!

 

Otherwise my driver was pretty much superb, which is a good sign going forward.  I think I am going to try to get in for a lesson on the weekend to do a final check on the full swing and see whether all is in order.
