Just a little update. Been playing pretty consistently recently and my game is starting to come back.
Vic Open Pro Am - Not much to write home about here. The format meant we basically took the Pros tee shot on every hole. Still hit my shots off the tee. Driver was wayward, but three wood was hit very well.
Nine holes at Geelong on Monday. Very good round for me, made about four pars, four bogeys and a double.
Portarlington Pro Am today. Unbelievably tough conditions. 40kmhr winds with rain. A real grind. Walked off with 30 points. Leading Pro was -2 with another two at -1. The rest were par or worse. One Pro was +18. Speaks to the conditions a bit.
Best 30 point round I've ever had. Could easily have been 40 if I putted well. Bit of a walk through of the round.
1 - On in two. Long birdie putt left short. Easy par putt left short. Three putts total for a 5/2
2- Right off tee. Bunt to front of green. Three putts. 5/1
3 - On in three. Miss easy par putt. 5/3.
Solid through 4 and 5. Three putt on 6 for 6/2.
7 - Second shot to front of green. Turns out myself and another bloke were playing the same ball with the same number. He had a different mark to me which I didn't see. Penalty. Pick up.
8 - On in two. Three putt. 5/2
9 - On in three. Three putt 6/2.
10/11 - Nothing interesting.
12 - Beautiful drive. Second shot went right. Short chip. Second chip onto green. two putts 6/1.
13 - Short par four. Chip on. Drain birdie putt (finally!!!)
14 - Long par four. 80m out for third shot. Duff chip. Skinny Chip. Too much on the chip. Miss putt for a point.
15 - Perfect drive. 5 iron into greenside bunker. Chip out a little skinny. Poor chip. three putt. 7/1.
16. Direct into wind. Flushed my 7 iron just 90m!! 6/1
17 - Par three. Long off tee. Chip on. One putt 3/3!
18 - Decent tee shot. Second shot to just short of green. Nice chip shot gets blown off the green. Chip back on. Two putts. 6/1.
Lots of shots left out there which is a shame, but my ball striking is definitely the best its been. I feel a REALLY good round isn't too far away.
