So a tough tough day at the frog. I am so glad I have yet to see an OOM in that but at the same time would love to see the massacred scores it would cause.

 

Had 99 OTS for 29pts and that was lucky. When your pulling 2 clubs more than you need and still only making it half way then I will take 29 pts. On the flip side Driver 3i to back of 3 green was a highlight! 8i from the back of 12 and landing almost hole high. Yeah it was gusty!

 

I honestly was about to go home at 12 as I knew I had 15 into the wind and 16 and just didn't want to do it. I really took nothing away form it except I finally got to see a drawn gap wedge around a tree :D

 

Goldy I admire the fact you do play in those conditions. If it was me I honestly would do a mouldy and stay in bed.

Good to see your healths back so you can get out n playing golf again.

How do you, did you, incorporate tagging game golf into your routine on course. Do ya have to tag when close to the ball?

And, what about having your phone nearby. I know you said in the other thread you upload later, just not sure on phone on course etc.

Do you use Android or iPhone?

I think I need a "behind the scenes" tracker that I can analyse later. Tagging Ok, I think, would go Arccoss, but hear Android app not so good.

I tag when i remember. Generally when I am standing at the ball waiting for others too hit once I have selected club etc.

 

I use it on PC so dont use phone at all. That way i dont see it until Monday when I upload on PC.

So after a few good rounds of late, I backed up with a crap 100 OTS for Stroke last week. Didn't really want to post about it as it wasnt an overly bad round just 1 bad hole (11 on 14. Lost ball and a hitler along with only just getting out on the 2nd) with too many doubles in there.

 

Stableford on Sunday for 89 OTS (38 pts) with 1 birdie and 6 pars and 1 wipe. 

 

Played solidly all round. Strung together a great back 9 with 5 bogeys and 3 pars. One Triple with a lost ball on 17 to water then missed 2 ft putt. Putted well with a lot of putts dying at the hole but in the heart. Greens were running slow as they had been left a little long so was happy with them. 

 

Some solid drives and irons played. Costly with wedges again. Very up and down now with chips and pitches with 54 or 58. Chunking them or then not hitting them hard enough to get them going. Close to being the yips but its nott all the time. Probably 2 out of 5 but enough to cost me around 5 or 6 shots a round (with others leaving long putts as well). 

 

Putting back to a good place with control and distances again. Approx 1 in 6 putts now not making half  the distance with the rest finishing within 2 feet of hole. So getting control back of it and has shown with the scores of late.

 

Down to 16.2 after Sunday's round so close to being at my 2nd lowest cap of 16.1 since getting my cap at 15.9. Slowly slowly starting to find some form and capitalise on it and bring my cap into where it should be.

 

Also saw Iseek Roaylty (;)) after the round getting in some putting practise on the greens. Probably not the best day to have picked as the greens as above were a bit long.

Backed up on Monday with a 90 for 35 pts off the whites. 3 wipes ( 2 on the easiest 2 holes.. not happy) 6 pars 8 Bogeys. First time since joining 'Berg that I had a no shot hole on 5.

 

Played the course well again, putting even better than the day before with putts dropping on most holes to save par or bogey where as previously would of missed. Driver Irons and putter is now strong and reliable enough that the misses aren't overly bad (except the odd drive). 

 

Stupid putting mistake on 3 from 1ft cost me Cap Par by opening my mouth before the putt saying I had been putting well lately. Thankfully was the only mis-putt for the round. 

 

Wiping the 2 easiest holes because of wedges again was a pretty bad blemish on the card. Especially one of them being the no shot hole. Again just off the green and chunking wedges. I know its from decelerating through my chip as confidence is low. When i commit they are fine, any element of doubt and i chunk.

 

Another flag and now down to my lowest cap point since 15.9 of 16.1. Am hoping the trend continues,  but with doc appt this week for health issues from last year and then course closed on sun for pennant may not be able to get out for a couple of weeks.

A round of 37pts on Sat. Although it should and could of been a lot better I am not going to complain with an above handicap round!

 

89 OTS(47 + 42) (16 + 21 pts) w 2 wipes, 1 double, 10 Bogeys, 4 pars and 1 birdie.

 

Chipping causing the double with a chunked chip on 2 and then tentative on the next one.

 

After starting on 10, Playing the back 9 in 42 with a wipe on 18. Played solidly and put myself into position to really shoot a good score. Starting with a 3 putt on 10 I thought I might have been in for a bad day but the putter again was solid with most 1 or 2 putts on the holes. Birdie on 15 coming from off the green. Was about 10 meters off the green and putted it. Hit pin with a touch of speed, sat on edge and dropped in! 4 for 4!! 18 should never have been wiped though as the ball clipped a tree and dropped dead. While we were looking ahead for it, I went back to the ball with the wrong club and left bag at provisional ball. As I needed a 3w and not PW (in hand) to bunt out I played it to not waste more time. Ended up costing me and put me off for a couple of holes. 

 

Played the front 9 ok and really should of been a lot better. Should not have wiped 2 but chunking the chip doesnt help. Wiping 3 after a beautifully struck drive caught the edge of the gum tree and dropping dead landing in an awkward spot. Pulled 5w and turned it over too much and hooked into crap near fence. Punched 3i and caught it clean sending it to the garden bed on the other side. Wiped it. Cleared the head and managed to bogey the rest (incl 8) and par 9th to give me 37 pts.
