Poor yesterday. Greens were very crusty and with a wind that was gusty I just didn't hit enough greens. Very disappointed but I know I am doing the right thing

Long game has been good, short game has been poor. I was playing great around the end of last year and start of this but have had a slow start to the 2014 season.

I was diagnosed with pubis osteitis in May and had a cortisone injection on the 16th so then had to have 2 weeks rest - no golf at all! Been a long time since I've taken that long off golf!

So I've a tournament on the 21st and 22nd of this month which I'm working hard to be ready for.

Thanks guys, good to see the old hands about.

Had a wee game today, shot +5 with 6 bogies and a birdie. Not bad but not great, room for improvement but the signs are good.

I'm working on a centred pivot maybe a bit of SnT but not exact to their model.

3. 3w mfwl, 7i mgr bunker, lw green, putt

5. MFWL, 8i mg short, putted up to around 6 feet but missed the next one, poor effort, tapped in for bogey
6. MFWR, 9i g, 2 putts
7. DFW, Rescue to bunker, GW to green, 2 putts for par
8. 8i green, putt
9. DFW, GW green, 2 putts

Ended up with best gross score on the day and got a handsome watch for it.

Handicap back down to 3.

Best part of this was it was a good score without playing particularly well.

More to come!

Back to earth with a crash.

Horrendous play on Saturday at Irish mid amateur. I had no control of my golf ball for most of the day and ended up with two terrible scores.

My back was very sore, I had been teaching Aimpoint all day on Friday and then had a long drive to the tournament venue. I got up on Saturday and was extremely tired before I even left the hotel so 36 holes would always be a challenge.

The most frustrating thing was hitting good shots amongst all the bad ones.

Back at it this week.

Sorry for being away so long, just wanted to touch base and say I got there so never give up on your dreams fellas and girls.

 

Met an awful lot of great people on here, sad to see how long it's been since I last was on.

 

Heard about Darty passing away, real loss to the game.

 

Any of the old crew still knocking about?
