Welcome back butler. Come and have a hit with the group sometime. OB doesn't come if he can't bring his cart, and for some reason most of the courses we choose to play don't allow it.


Thanks Snappy, bit of a hike from SA haha

Most South Aussies I know are dying to escape whenever they can.

If I can win an OOM anyone can.

So the road back to singles got a little boost today when the club decided to assess my HC and make an adjustment due to how i have been playing in the last month. It's fair as far as I'm concerned as i have started to strike the ball a lot better over the last few week. 

 

HC is now into 13.6 after the adjustment of which 2.0 was deducted. Daily HC will be 15 on the weekend so hopefully i can keep up the recent form and have a good one. I'll laugh if i come in with 44pts or something crazy again and I'm sure a lot of the ol boys will be pleased that my HC as reassessed.

Well done on your improvement.

 

I know this has been discussed elsewhere but looked at your handicap record today using the link in your signature and it looks to me like the system may have gone wrong. If I read it correctly when you have between 1 and 3 live scores your handicap should have been based on the best played to. After three rounds that was 15.9 which when multiplied by 0.93 would give you a handicap of 14.7. But instead your handicap stayed at 20.8.

 

All water under the bridge now so good luck with your return to single figures.

Thanks FG. I know the basics of the handicap system but that's about it, all the ins and outs are beyond my knowledge. Hopefully its put to bed now and i can just worry about swinging a club and having a beer post round without the hassle. Time to just let the clubs do the talking.

The thing which surprised me was that I thought the system applied the handicap rules automatically but apparently not.

 

I try to let the clubs do the talking but sometimes they stutter and say things I'd rather they didn't  :lol:

Standard Sunday update after my Saturday round and Sunday pennants match. Home deck, Slope 132 playing of a daily HC of 16 I had 38pts. Out in 22/39 OTS and then is all fell apart coming home with 16/47 OTS making for 86 OTS. The driver was all over the place Saturday but i think my length had hand in still being able to play above my HC. Today was a bit better with the driver and took me a while to get going in the Div 3 pennants but i managed to get up 3/2 after been down by 2 at the turn. A birdie at the 10th was the turning point and making my opponent putt a few 2 footers that lipped out really got under his skin. The team managed to get up 7 to 1 in a top of the table clash. Yesterdays round consisted of: 

 

7x Pars

8x Bogeys

3x Doubles

3x FIR 

4x GIR

32 putts for the day with 2x 3 jabs both on par 3's which was disappointing.

 

GA HC is into 13.1 and although i didn't play great all weekend i am happy with the progress that i am making. Still have a long way to go till i hit singles but i feel like i am tracking on the right path for now. Consistency with distance with my irons is coming back as i start to hit them better and today my control with the putter late in the match was really good.
