Played with Daves who is a ripping bloke.


I’m going to tell him you said this. He’s going to be upset. I take no responsibility for what happens next.

Agreed, although I can tell you from recent experience that going from Cairns winter to a Melbourne spring is quite a shock to the system too.

Played my first game as a member at Nudgee yestarday.

Got there early, went down to the range and hit everything beautiful. I mean, seriously good.

Step up to the first tee znd hit a 40 m slice into the gunge. Good start.

Irons were good all day, driver really let me down.

29 points of poo

Nudgee Bay course yesterday

Driver really let me down on the front 9. Well, it didnt, i did. but you get what im saying.

Irons were ok. Cored greens sucked
Made the turn in 16 points. With 3 3 putts.
Driver was high weak cuts. Which have plagued me the last few weeks.

Slight setup difference on the 10th tee, and jez it was good. Big straight high bombs

To bad my short game and putting sucked.

17 points on the back for 33 points.

My bunker play is either shite or chocolate. Can never tell whats going to happen.

Happy enough with how i played finally.

Hopefully my slump is on its way out

Strange day today.

Back wasnt great, wristwas rubbish.

Went to the range first. Absolutely shocking, i actually nearly thiught of going home before i started. Just massive pulls with irons and driver

Took me 7 holes to work out i would be playing with pulls all day, so i adjusted my setup accordingly.

Front 9 was nothing exceptional, 5 lip out putts, to be 40 oTS. Equivalent of 20 points

Was really hot, so grabbed to cans of beer, snorted one before i got to the 10th tee.
Went birdie, birdie, bogey, par biridie.
Missed an ace on the 14th buy to ball lengths. And got pipped by a dude that had 1cm on the NTP.

But my name is on there for the 11th. Brutal hole, played it well today

Ive never had 2 birds in a round, so to have 3 in 5 holes is something i will remeber forever. Im bummed i couldnt hold on, but the 17th got me. I had been driving reaaly well, and took om the dogleg, slight misshit, hit the last tree, and cannoned backwards. Bugger all shot, chip to the fairway. Just missed it!

Had 143 to a back left pin, belted an 8i to 6 feet left, caught the swale and ended uo on the downslope of another green. Got to cute with my 60*, came up way short onto a hardpan dirt lie with 4 feet of straight up hill in fromt of me.
Belted putter, good weight, 4 feet left but. Full horseshoe putt. Double

Then 18, nearly cleared the left bunker, not quite. 147 uphill left, thinned a 7 iron to 20 short. Green 15 feet above my head. Great lobber to 6'.
Oh look, another horseshoe put.

So i missed 5 putts by less than an inch on the front, and 3 on the back by less than 4 "

It really could have been a a 70 of the stick.

Oh well, im pumped anyway, hopefully handicap comes in

Plan fell aprt today.

Im in the midst of a massive flare up of my RA, was never going to be good.

Oh well.

-11 in par.
Not a single plus for the day.

2 GIR.
7 FIR
34 putts.

Was just a total potato

With my wrist as bad as it is, i just have no control over the clubface, so its anyones guess were it goes.
No wrist hinge, no power. My best drive was 203m. So sad.
Irons were 1 to 1.5 clubs short.

Im finally of to a rheumatologist on thusrday. Been way to long, so im hoping i can go on the next stage of treatment. Its a risk as it lowers your immune system even more, but hopefully, out of the shitty Melbourne weather and into Brisbanes more constant weathher, i shouldnt be to bad.

Ah well, we will see
