Royal Pines off 12 off the blues teamed with Bruce in a 4BBB Match play against Mads and his mate. We got them 4 and 3 in the end.

7 pars 6 bogies 3 doubles 1 triple 1 wipe

8/14 fairways - drove pretty well especially early on. Dropped a shot in 11 with a hook into the trees and wiped the hole on 17 with a hook against the OOB fence that I tried some fun ways of recovering from but no go.

8 GIR - plus 5 Texas- pretty pleased with this stat and the long game was pretty good so no complaints. Dropped 3 shots from irons - pushed 8i on 2 left me behind a bunker, thin 6i on 14 left me on the edge of a bunker with no real shot, and fat 8i on 15. Otherwise pretty good. Greens were hard to hit and hold on to so felt good about making so many.

2/10 up and downs - 5 Texas - not too good here but then the greens at RP are tricky. Showed up even more in my putting. Dropped 6 shots here, 4 from Texas', one from a thin LW lob attempt and 1 from a poor 8i chip.

39 putts + 5 Texas - the real low point of the round. Been putting better last few rounds but the faster greens with lots of break and grain got me badly yesterday. 4 3 putts and a missed short straight putt meant the short stick cost me 5 shots - very bad.

Overall I played well tee to green but then was crap. But signs remain pretty good. We will see how it goes at Southport on Sunday.

Disappointing game at Southport yesterday for 27 points and net 83

Had a 10 on the 5th hole by slicing my mini driver OOB twice, then hitting my driver dead straight into water at 250m - expected at least some right shape but isn't that golf for you

Pushed a SW OOB on 11 as well

Lots of pushes and then later on some overcompensating hooks as well

3/13 fairways and dropped 7 shots here mostly from the 5th and then on 18 the group on 1 took my ball! Walked back and reloaded and by the time I came back to my 2nd ball my 1st ball was sitting there right next to the path. 2 shots dropped there.

5 GIR - dropped 6 shots here from the SW OOB and a few hooks.

2/11 up and downs - dropped 5 shots here. Not the worst part of my game by a long shot.

36 putts - dropped 6 shots here from 3 putts and missing short putts. Really disappointing performance with the flat stick including lots of Texas wedges that weren't too good.

Overall - complete rubbish

I was Poo but wouldn't have been if I'd got to p play my original ball on 18 - pricks

Yep
OOB is just a few metres right of the green but I should never have even got close to it with SW

Mate, sand wedges are fickle beasts.

 

Just a couple of week's ago I hit a great three wood after my usual crap drive on 15 at The Flats. Only 90m out, left hand side of fairway, perfect angle to a back right flag, and managed to shank with said weapon 80m straight right into the lake.

 

They're like women, can't be taken for granted. :D

Range session this arvo of 300 balls. Strengthened the grip but was still more pushy than straight. Eventually I tried really loosening my grip on the club - so everything felt very loose and relaxed. Was a good move and really straightened up the ball flight.

Sunday is the Wynnum Open so we will see if it stays that way!

Out of interest, how many days would one put aside to hit 300 balls at a range?
Almost regarded by one member as the best non-golf playing golfer on this forum.

How many hours does it take you to hit 300 balls? What is the process? Just hit, scrape, repeat? Or do you go through your entire pre shot routine before each pill? Interested to find out.
