Well that was a case of posting too soon. Was a perfect day and weather for golf. Walked off 'Berg with 40pts, 7 pars and breaking 90 for an 88. Hmmm..... Still ended up 6th with a 43 winning, 41 then 5 40's coming in. In fact 38 people came in with 36 or better. Course was playing a little easy with some of the pin positions and tees forward on some holes. 

 

Was a great round. Everything almost went my way and kept myself again out of major trouble. Couple of bad hits and bad chips cost me a few strokes. 1 or 2 putts as well from a foot. 

 

I forgot how good that bag is top to bottom and looks like might be staying in play for a while now. Game has been posted up on game golf (link below). 

Flagged again with a Played to 16 and come down to 17.2 for GA. Lowest I have been since July last year.

 

Hopefully this is the beginning and it keeps tracking down and I continue to play good golf. 

 

Unfortunately coring greens today and I don't fair well as I hate putting on them. Par on sunday so hoping most of it will be washed away and back to playable by then.

Hmmm....nice couple of rounds back to back there, Chopper man...and a 1.5 drop on the 'cap.

 

You may lose the title...I believe Fehan was hankering for it after yesterday.

So just looking over the cap and I have 7 rounds before a flag comes up to be dropped. Being a 20.5 it would be replaced by a 22 if I don't shoot better between now and then. Then followed by the Moonah Flag of 15.3.

 

I really am hoping I have finally turned the corner and can start putting together some solid rounds and trend the cap downwards to where it should be. I should be able too replace that flag fairly easily but maybe after the cored greens are repaired.

 

For some reason I just do not putt well on them. I still play for break and what not when it really is just hit at the hole.

 

So par this sunday at Berg then followed by a social hit with a mate on Wednesday at Frog. Stroke Monthly Medal next Sunday will be the real test I think and looking forward to seeing if I can keep it in the high 80's maybe even mid if I can play well enough.

 

So far the holiday bag is staying as is. Loved using a driver on Sunday so keeping it in. 3 and 5w are playing solid and really not sure why I put them in this bag. Irons are fantastic although I am not convinced on the wilson 3i. I might throw the cally one in. Wedges are yuck but thats the indian not the arrow. Putter actually feels 50 times better than my normal one.

 

Had a voucher at GCO so bought the $99 360 Traxion Boa Adidas. Loving the Boa and not having to do shoelaces up. 2nd pair I own now and really don't know why I didnt look into them sooner!!!
