Congrats to CB and a flawless round of golf. Honestly I don't remember one mistake (even the 1ft lol) and was just fantastic to watch. Agree with Smergs that when you play within yourself it just comes together. (P.S. That's 2 flawless rounds for OOM wins I have played with and I think 3 winners all up. Bully and Geoff for the flawless rounds. Have to check if there was a 3rd winner).

 

 

 

Thanks for the company Joe, enjoyed it. You did mention on way round you had played with some of previous winners.

 

I think you brought me luck. I hope your turn to win comes around soon.

 

PS: we will Have get Deege to pair LuckyJoe with Francie for next 3 OOM's.

Thanks to the committee for putting together another great OOM. Always a fun day. Carson, unlucky not to even place, played flawless golf all day mate. Nick, great to see your ability to recover and nail those clutch shots, and never a bad day walking the course with old mate Lucas. Congrats to all the winners especially duck+nicholas  :lol:

 

See you all at sandhurst

I'm sure the rules will stipulate, that anyone shooting through before collecting the Vest will have to tee off first at their next event whilst wearing said vest.

Geez I miss the OOMs.

 

Great day out with a great bunch of blokes. First time walking the course with Joe79 and DallasM and a great pleasure it was. Their front 9s were particularly... umm... scratchy? Yeah scratchy that'll do.

 

And whilst Joe79 improved on the back to get out of the Orange zone, DallasM's back 9 was something to behold. I personally loved the 7 for 1 on 11 which "we" settled for after originally aimed for a 4 for 4.

 

But the group belonged to the man we called Le MetroGnome (is a BMan Slog BBQ deck thing). He was literally faultless (except for that 1ft jab on 15) and I don't recall a fairway missed. It was TopCat-esque but with more distance, skill and less BS. Nothing flashy (although the 2 for 4 on 12 was pretty good) just proof that you hit it to the right spots and know your limits and the score comes to you without having to chase it.

 

So great to see him win the day. He deserves it after all the work he's done over the years with the OOMs. I'm also very proud of myself for not getting his ear and trying to put him off his game.

 

As for me... well... it was certainly interesting. The yellow Vision ball CB80 gave me was impossible to lose... and I tried. Highlights were the ~300m provisional ball on the 4th, which saw me hit two drives, putt twice and walk off with a 5 for 2... (Stupid game). 5i faded around the tree out of the rough on 8 was nice too.

 

But 32pts was certainly around 4 more than I was expecting or hoping for. Not too bad.

 

Good luck with the rest of the year guys, I'm off to see the country with the family. I'll keep an eye on the forums to make sure you guys don't leave too many Cleveland Steamers lying around.

 

Oh... and congrats to the Committee... brilliant as always...

 

 

I forgot to mention as well enjoy the trip!!! Sounds awesome and hope to do something similar with my wife and kids!

Lol Unfortunately I played with Francie at Monah Legends for the OOM Last year (Which may have been the OOM that got off the TBTHNWAOOM (Is that right?))

 

Deege was the nationals at STAB but I don't think that really counts though as it wasn't an OOM....

Thanks mate. 5yrs in the thinking/planning/executing so it's great to have it finally here. All I can say is if you want to do it, make the big call and start working towards it. Like improving your handicap, it won't happen unless you work towards it.

I also forgot to mention that those ominous clouds we saw had hail in them. Wife told me when I got home that they had hail there (about 8km as the crow flies) so we were lucky lol.

Well done to the winners:

 

CB80

Notupnotin

Iron_Mick

 

Thanks very much to the organisers:

Deege, Geoff, Wozz, Goldy and <ouldy

 

Thanks to my playing group:

Ghetto

Francie

GPJ

 

It wasn't near my best round of golf and its frustrating to play so badly. I'm glad I missed the NAGA in an official OOM.

 

Nice to see Ghetto, Francie and GPJ hit the ball so nicely. GPJ you were robbed!!!

Someone would have to check but if it was the OOM where you passed the trophy to TB then you could claim that as a win.....  :D

Thanks to the OOM machine for another top day at Le Frog.

Great to see all the eager fresh faces milling around the putting green and welcome to the new recruits too. 

 

Enjoyed the round with Rob, Chang and big John ( who hit it alot better than his final score, needs a short game and he'd shave 50% off his cap )

 

Sorry I had to scarper early, had a stock take to do that I'd been putting off for awhile and Sunday was about the last time available for the next month or so.

 

To Muzz, I did wear the white belt but by the end of the round it was hidden under several layers of wet weather gear, so I'll bring it next time just for you, Couza ! 

 

Jon...
