So managed to get a leave pass for tomorrow morning so will be heading out to 'Berg for a round and hopefully warm up into Sunday!

 

Sunday should be a fun day but not expecting much with not having played frog in a while and really not getting along with the greens.

 

As has been explained to me the breaks on the greens are subtle but yet I can not come to trust it and still allow way too much break etc than really is needed. Thus ending up pin high 6 or 7 feet left or right of the hole.

 

If I can reign this in I reckon I will be up there but expecting around mid table with about 30pts.

Well that didnt go as planned. Couple of lost balls (one being into the 16th dam off the tee again) and couple of 8's on different holes didnt help.

97 nett 77. Was some good golf in there just hurt by burnt putts and the above. Feeling tad sore after round so will be interesting to see how i pull up.

So OOM. 40 pts off 23. Always happy to score great points. Not so impressed or impressive that it was off such a high handicap of 23. But it shows my game and cap are not relevant too each other in that I can play very good golf, just not consistently. When I do I score well, when I don't the wheels really fall off. Just need to look at my last 20 to see it. Only a handful of games since oct and those mostly being in the last few weeks doesn't help either. 

 

So as for the round, it was a game of nothing going wrong except for the last 3 holes. 

 

1st hole started with a high strong fade bordering slice that stayed rough short of the garden bed. Hit onto the green but close to fringe. 3 putted for Bogey\Cap Par.

 

2nd hole straight hit pin high but aim was off which ended up near the hazard. Chip on 2 putt bogey\cap par.

 

From there it just went up. Par, bogey bogey, par(4pt that was a 1 putt after a left to right to left putt that i just aimed at the hole and it went in), bogey, par, par. 

 

Back 9 very similar, bogey bogey bogey double bogey par(4pt) double wipe par (2 shot hole\2pt)

 

With nothing going wrong it could\should of been a lot worse but things went my way. Examples are on 9 hitting a high fade\slice up past the garden bed into vegetation. Found it next to a plant but enough to get a good strike on it and punch out. Swing and land it 6 feet from pin. Same on 11 high right slice found with clear space. Punch out with 7, 3w wedge on to about 10 feet and 2 putt. This was the theme, wedges working well, able to chip without flubbing or chunking, out of bunkers in 1 instead of 3. I was playing well (for me). 

 

Fatigue kicked in at the end and a couple of dumb decision cost me some points on the final 3 holes. But at the same token I had a lot of chances at birdie and par putts that were either hole high with 1 foot either side or short. 

 

What helped was being told the breaks are subtle at the frog and with this in mind I putted a hell of a lot better than i have at the course previously. In previous years\rounds I aimed for big swinging breaks only to be hole high or there abouts but 6 to 8 feet away. 

 

Overall I went in not expecting much and came out happy. going in with low expectations and just swinging freely helped!

Definitely trying to ingrain that into my head. Its what I have been doing for the last 12 months and slowly slowly its starting to become the norm. Generally I was trying to hit it as hard or far as I can which leads to spraying etc.

 

Its a work in progress and slow but seems to be trending right. I just need to try and keep it up and reduce into the mid to high 80's!
