BTW felt my short game was very bad at Pacific especially from the sand which was very wet and heavy and I kept coming out longer than the shot required.


Club tends to 'skid more on the firm surfaces chief so don't swing as hard in wet hard sand

Short game today

Rather than score bases on the club I'm hitting in I'm going to score based on whwther the short game shot was straightforward or not

12 LW chip over rough and short sided with an upslope to land on - good chip to 5ft 0 + 0
14 Texas from just short to 2ft past but tap on the slippery downhill broke when I expected it to stay straight so I'm giving the miss to the putt not the Texas 0 + 0
17 Texas way too long from a bit short - 1 + 0

3 I had a pitch from about 40m to 10ft - happy with that

4 LW chip was too long from just left of the green - 2 + 0
6 LW chip thin into bunker - 2 + 1/2 then LW from short sided bunker to 12ft - 2 + 1
7 LW open faced chip from a side slope over a hollow and upslope to 6ft and down - 2 + 1
8 Texas to 2ft - 2 + 1

So short game handicap was 3 today which is how many shots I gave myself above

The 3 3 putts and miss from 2ft was the short game problem area today

Played at Hills off the who he tees today. Played some good golf but a few offline - especially some pushy drives - but short game again was most of the shots

1 birdie
7 pars
7 bogies
2 doubles including 1 wipe
1 triple wipe

6/14 fairways - dropped shots from a hybrid behind trees on 2 and hooked wet driver on 10. Had a couple of good bombs - 282m on 4 and 262m on 18. Wasn't bad today apart from the hook on 10, but did hit slices on 6 and 7.

8 GIR - and another 4 that were pretty close - not too bad and had driver 262, 3h 200 sand and up and down from the sand from 40m for birdie on 18, and a 3h GIR on 5. So some good shots. Was pushy with the irons on a number of occasions but fixed set up and that improved.

2/8 up and downs - disappointments were a bunker shot OOB on 11 and a thin AW chip on 15. The other misses were not too bad shots. Good up and down from sand from 40m short on 18 for birdie was the only highlight.

37 putts - 3 3 putts including misses from 2 and 3ft was very poor. Only 2 1 putts. Wasn't terrible putting and made some very good lags but was a poor performance.

I'm replacing a 9 today so at best I can hope for a played to 12 but more likely 13 so will go out around 1/2 a shot most likely.

Short game

1 LW pitch from 50m was toey and right to 25ft
3 AW chip was a bit soft to 12ft
9 AW chip was soft to 15ft - bit more than I expected
10 AW pitch from 45m was well short - maybe 30ft
11 LW bunker shot was clean and OOB, next was long to 12ft - bunker was very hard and crusty but no excuse for 1st shot
13 Texas to 3ft short and down
15 AW chip thin and 20ft past
16 LW sand was good but 15ft short from a long way
18 SW bunker shot from say 20m short of the green was great to 8ft right and sunk for birdie

So short game handicap wise that's a 5 1/2 or so. Had 7 holes with short shots (not pitches from 40+ metres) and was 6 over with the OOB. Not sure this short game handicap approach makes much sense given variation in how many short game shots between rounds.

I think at the moment with my new cap of 10.9 I'm looking at something like 4 over long game and 7 over short. Something like that.

Next game will be at Pacific Harbour for a social round with Piggy and Wozz so that will be fun.

Long game today
1 mistake putting 6i too close to one of the trees that narrow the approach and SW didn't make it a over. Drive was thin but over all 3 good strike - but an error of judgement trying to carry the tree
2 4h was a big push and I had to chip back down the fairway as I couldn't take on the water. Really good 7i punch off the steep downslope almost gave me a par.
3 PW was weak and right but should have parred it
4 Drove it 283m down the right side. LW from 50m was a little soft but on.
5 8i was weak but 3h was a cracker to 25ft past the hole from about 215m to the hole.
6 Slice was bad enough to find the 5th fairway, good 6i back over the trees and low but solid 9i to 20fr
7 Another slice but I always err right on this hole so that was fine, then good 9i to 15ft
8 Solid 6i GIR
9 Pushed drive 245m was fine, but 8i was a bit fat - should have been a straight forward up and down par but AW was a bit bitey.

10 Big hook off the tee wet, solid 7i but 6i just found the tree leaving 45m.
11 Pushed 5i and had to punch under trees and over water - and did ok into bunker with lots of green. Then disaster.
12 3h drew and had to punch around trees. Was very very happy to 2 putt from Prob a my 60ft down a steep slope with around 15ft or more of break.
13 9i draw just short
14 230m drive was just left of target but got lucky not go find the water - may have actually bounced over a bit of it. AW was good.
15 7i was good but PW a bit weak. Should have been an easy up and down.
16 6i was a big push into the bunker right - pin was left side.
17 good 4h a little right left AW punch under trees and up the green. Man that green has some slope back to front but almost suck the birdie from 30ft up the hill.
18 262m drive down right side (there is a tree in the middle you have to choose a side aeound). 3h was good but found sand around 20m short of the green. Was a very happy way to end with an up and down birdie.

Could have lost a couple more shots but also just missed a couple that could have got away with so overall a decent performance with the full swing.

Played Pacific Harbour today in a fun hit with Wozz and Pigskin and GA. We decided to try the course off the blacks which are 6339m - about 7000y. Conditions included a few showers passing through but overall very pleasant for golf. A bit of wind but only a club or so so not too bad.

Course was in excellent condition. A few hard wet bunkers from the rain but otherwise perfect.

I started well and was overall pretty solid. 42 for 18 on the front and then 46 for 15 on the back. 88 less 13 handicap for net 75 and 33 points. No golflink involved unfortunately.

7/14 fairways - took driver mostly, as you'd expect for a back marker - and made 8/12 and 1/2 with hybrid. Dropped 2 shots with driver from a pull and a wet push. Dropped 1 with a hooked hybrid into the water.

5 GIR - I felt like I did better than that but had quite a few others that were close. Only hit 1 par 3 and 1 par 5 and 3 on par 4s. Dropped a shot from a topped 5i and a shot from a pulled hybrid on 17.

4/13 up and down - not a bad return but one was a bit lucky after a thin chip. Hit a few of those - not good. Dropped 9 shots - 4 with gap wedge (2/6) 4 with lob wedge (1/5) 1 sand (0/1) and made 1/1 with Texas

34 putts - 2 3 putts but otherwise putted pretty well. Just missed a couple of birdie putts.

Short game handicap (9 over)

3 LW chip a bit long to 8ft but down
4 LW chip short after a big pushed 4h, then Texas mis read to 6ft and down
6 gap wedge chip long to 10ft and not down
7 gap wedge chip thin but to 1ft and down
8 gap wedge chip up and over a steep slope was very very pleasing to 1ft and down
9 lob wedge chip was soft and not down
11 gap wedge chip pin high but pulled a bit and just missed the putt
14 sand wedge bunker shot too long and then double hit the lob wedge chip back - that was my wipe hole with a triple
15 gap wedge chip was good but stopped quicker than I expected and didn't get it down
17 lob wedge lob shot to 6ft was a excellent shot but unfortunately didn't drop the putt
18 gap wedge chip was again a bit weak and underread the par putt

My short game handicap was technically 9 over today. The bit I was unhappy about was a few thin shots. Wish I'd have been more aggressive with the chips, but happy to have hit quite a few solid chips

Stableford comp with BF combined with our annual stableford matchplay against Brisbane City Council at Redland Bay today. I started terribly with wipe bogey 2 wipe to be 2 down after 3 and never got it back, with my opponent dropping a texas for par to win 1 up (a poetic finish given he dropped a number of long putts during the round). He had 39 points off 15 to my 37 off 11.

Was a shotgun so started on 16, ended up 19 front and 18 back

2 birdies
7 pars
6 bogies
2 doubles
1 wipe - would have been triple but no shot so double on the card

9/14 fairways - didn't hit the driver great today - lots of low shots - but didn't do any damage so that was good. Happy-ish but need to improve contact.

5 GIR + 7 texas - pretty good ball striking after some shockers in the early holes. Thin 8i on first hole 16 hit the bank on the far side of the water and bounced back in - no shot so basically a wipe from the tee. On 18 hooked my 4h OOB and again no shot was basically a wipe at that point. Also topped a 4h on 9 into trees, so 3 shots dropped with 4h, 2 with the wet 8i on 16, and pushed a gap wedge just off the green on 11 that left a very short sided shot over a steep mound and was never going to leave the texas close - so 6 shots dropped.

3/10 up and downs - given how many texas I had that's a very poor return. 3/7 with texas including holing 1 for birdie. No others from a LW chip thin on 16, an 8i chip on 17 too long, a gap wedge pitch from 20m or so also long - just carried the bank at the front of the green - or a long bunker shot that started a bit right and the green just took it away; almost holed the 20ft putt up the hill though. So 5 shots dropped.

32 putts - 2 3 putts both due to first putt going long. Overall putted reasonably and had some very close longer putts just miss. Also rolles a few in the 3-6ft range in.

Overall a decent round and 5 over in the last 15 holes is more wnere I want to be. Birdies from a thin 6i to 1ft on 2 and a holed texas on 13 were highlights.

Not sure what we are doing next weekend but club champs for BF begin at Sanctuary Cove on 26 July so hopefully build on the good parts of today's round.
