Can it really be four years ago that I last broke par? That's what my golf link record says. It was at Innisfail Golf Club in Far North Queensland on 6 September 2014 that I shot 69 against par 70. As I recall my short game was sharp and I holed more than my share of putts.
I can recall a feeling that I had achieved everything I wanted to in my return to the game. And since then my golf has been pretty uninspiring. Golf link tells me that the best I have done since is 74 against par 71 at Mount Garnet Golf Club west of Cairns. Even that was more than two years ago on 20 March 2016. This year my best was 80 against par 72 on the St John course at the Heritage Golf Club near Melbourne. The only reason my handicap is still at 6.5 is that I haven't been playing.
My history is that I've taken a couple of ten year breaks from the game due to a lack of interest. Now that I've reached retirement age it's a case of now or never.
So there's my target, par or better. I'm dreaming of deja vu all over again!
