I'll be sure to try that today, 2 man ambrose, just working out how many beers is the right amount, I'm thinking 9, 1 for every 2nd hole, unless i play bad then it will be 10,11 or 12

You need a far more scientific approach that can be analysed and assessed. I propose the following approach as it was my style years ago when playing regular comp golf on Wednesday and Saturday every week.

1. Tee off slot around 12, 12.30... have a nerve settler while getting ready, warming up and having something to eat.

2. First on course at the 4th tee, so play 3 holes before having anything.

3. Repeat at the 7th tee, so by now, 6 holes completed and only 2 beers or UDL consumed.

4. Finish 3rd before getting to the half way so you can top up the Esky on the way through.

5. If scoring, maintain pace of drinks at one every 3 holes. If not scoring, increase pace for a few holes.

6. Assess progress of scores vs drinks left in Esky and decide on pace to finish round. Don't be afraid to now increase to one a hole on the last few if not scoring.

Using this approach you can enjoy golf and never really impact your handicap in any favourable, improvement, sense. Well, I couldn't and didn't...

1 - teed off at 1130, 2 settlers before teeing off

2 - opened 1st on course after first tee shot, then rolled in the birdie putt

we will skip 3&4

5 - was scoring well, drinking hard, missed a few 5 footers for par

6 - didnt drink for 2 holes, then realised with 3 holes left that there was a drink for each hole, so back into it

 

My partner and I , 2 man ambrose, he off 19, we turned in a -5(65), turns out those two missed par putts cost us the win,

Natter vs Smoldy. Game on. Getting my handicap out to 27 shouldn’t be too much of a problem the way I am playing currently, although I parred the hardest hole on Barnbougle Dunes (8th) last weekend which the caddy told me was rare air. Made me wonder what the hardest par 4 in Australia actually was. I’m sure there are a few people here ready to help out.
