Update time from lets see ............. Sunday golf this weekend.

 

I think it was 33 points or thereabouts ….. a very average affair in terms of actual golf shots, possibly one or two of them I'd like to keep, but the rest you could probably bin I reckon.

 

Had the 8.5 Deg driver back in the bag, but should have tweaked the loft setting higher, as "sideways" was the tone for more than a few drives on the 8.5 setting.

 

My swing was a little rusty, with every club, and it showed in the need to scramble for more holes than I care to during a round of golf.

 

The putter was just sending them sliding by the holes, so a fair degree of bogey golf was consumed by yours truly.

 

It wasn't all bad though …….. I more than enjoyed the company of my playing partners, and my pre, and mid round coffee were first rate.

 

It was a fun outing despite my golf, and with a couple of areas to ponder before my next planned round, its all good ……  :D

Update time from Beacy's Thursday morning Stableford comp.

 

Playing as a five, due to only 5 of us booked early on, and I was the youngest of the grouping by about 15 years (which doesn't happen often).

 

I started off outdriving my playing partners by 100m on the first …… and then they dragged me down to their level …. and  beat me with experience …. as the saying goes.

 

28 points for the day ….. all of my drives solidly in the fairway with good distance…… approach shots were rubbish, my chipping was worse, and my putting was just abysmal.

 

The only time the ball found the middle of the putter face was when I was "drop-kicking" them out of the course a couple of times.

 

So not a good round today, mildly frustrating to say the least, and no shots of any note to report. Not to worry though, it was nice out there this morning with the old boys (christ they can talk …. even during you're backswing)

 

Next round Sunday I believe, and hopefully there will be something positive to come out of that game ….  ;)

Update time from Sunday's Stroke Round up at Beacy.

 

40 and 41 for 81 OFS.

 

The good ....... a few decent iron shots here and there, and some good drives.

 

The bad ..... a few wayward and very costly iron shots, and some ordinary chipping.

 

My putting was okay without anything dropping.

 

There were 5 or 6 holes that I let myself down on, and that cost me in terms of the score.

It was good fun though .…. next round Thursday …..  :)

You're right there Goldy …… it was a very subdued Wasabi who fronted on Sunday morn.

 

Perhaps it may have been the sight of Bradley wearing his Collingwood jumper, who knows!!  :D

Yep, frustrating Micky.

 

What made it worse is that I somehow also managed to get pipped on a ntp on my favourite hole, the 6th.

 

For some reason my tee shot which finished up 46 cms from the cup, got beaten for a ball, by one that finished up 52 cms from the hole. I'm not sure who is doing the maths on these things, but I reckon they must have skipped a class or two during school. (I did make the putt though) ….  :huh:

In other Beacy news, there is currently work being performed to redesign the 14th green. For those who have played Beacy before, that's the downhill dogleg, uphill par 5.

 

The green has always been an issue, due to its big "back to front" slope.

 

All year, any ball landing on the front third of the green is susceptible to roll back down and off the green. This steep slope really limits the available pin placements to such an extent that only the back third of the green is used.

 

In summer its even worse as any downhill putt is treacherous at best.

 

So, they have set up a temporary green about 40m shot of the existing green.

 

The diggers and bobcats have been in for a week and dug down the back half of the green to make it much flatter, and have just laid the new turf. There has been a crapload of dirt taken out of the both the rear and sides of the green which should see it much more playable. At this stage its unclear what exactly the green surrounds are going to be like, as the earthworks are not yet complete, perhaps grass mounds, perhaps a rear bunker …….. either way, its going to be quite interesting to see the final results.

 

So for the Beacy Invitational planned for early December, the new green should hopefully be in play …  :D

The slope in front of the green is steeper than the actual green. How did they construct a temp green there?

We'll see on Friday at King of the Hills.

We'll see on Friday at King of the Hills.

 

There's that plateau about 30 or 40m short of the green . so they've basically closely mowed a circle on it, and stuck a hole in the middle of it.

 

At the moment, according to the powers that be, you have a maximum of 2 putts on it ….. any more apparently, and you pick up and write down 2 putts. (Not sure I agree with that).

 

It should see a few more birdies scored on the hole at the very least Phil, as its a lot easier 2nd shot now.

Update time from Thursday comp .......

 

16 points on the front half, and 17 on the back (it could have been the other way around) for a total anyway, of 33 for the morning.

 

Some nice shots, and some bad ones .. and a couple of wipes ..... sounds like golf doesn't it?

 

Such a nice morning to be out on the course though, and it's looking a real treat up at Beacy.

 

It's amazing how a week of wind and no rain, can transform the course.

 

There is some run now back on the drives, the greens are much quicker, and the green surrounds much firmer underfoot, if the good weather keeps up its just about time to switch to "summer golf".

 

It's always fun at this time of year I reckon, when you start getting another half a club's distance, and you need to drop them just shy of the greens and let em kick on. Its also quite gusty so there is the ever present swirling winds to consider …. so golf is very changeable at this time of year.

 

As an example of the changes … last week I hit driver and then 3W to the front fringe of the Par 5 3rd ……. this morning it was driver and then an easy 5 iron which landed just left of the green but bounded down over the back.

 

Good fun though today, and as always plenty of things to ponder from yet another lacklustre round. Next planned round …….. probably a week away, as I'm working over the long weekend now ….  :D

The Beacy greens today were far from any thought of "quick". They were pretty dead. I left a heap of putts a few inches short after belting the ball toward the hole.
