    4BBB Comp - I was off my society HC off 0 my partner was off 5 - we ended up with 43 points , the other pair were 44 points off a 5 and 6 HC but neither pair in the prizes despite some great golf but a superb day out
    Agreed, I had a great day out today. Hankley Common GC in the sunshine was stunning.

    Should have been £25 (GolfNow hot deal) but I had a £10 voucher.

    It was a bit damp in places, mostly between the tees and the start of the fairways but nothing too excessive.

    have duffed the odd one, but chipping is normally one of the strongest parts of my game, no idea what went wrong yesterday. playing again on sunday, will have 30 mins on the practice ground beforehand to try to sort it out!

    39 points, very happy with my long game.

    Putting was poor, 38 putts, greens are not in great condition but no excuse for some of the three putts.

    Thats good considering the number of putts.

    Well yesterday in fact.

    Shot 46 points from the white tees off 15, so 5 over gross. Hit 11 greens, was nearest the pin on the par 3 9th (though someone may have bettered that as I wasn't very close), shot par for the back nine including back-back birdies one of which (167 yrd 14th) was a chip-in two after hitting the flagstick from the tee. Preferred lies though, some forward tees and one temporary green (18th).

    Hands down the best I've ever played so far.
    Current Handicap: 15

    Thanks.

    I didnt have one handicap reduction last year. Really struggled with my swing and the unmentionable shot. Finished the season feeling a bit flat about the whole thing. Last played a couple of weeks before Christmas.

    Anyway, went to the range on Monday this week and concentrated on some back to basics stuff, especially setup, turning my shoulders and getting through the ball.

    Yesterday, things just clicked. I'm hoping things will continue from there.

    Glad it's coming. Keep working hard, and hopefully by the time we get the Spring and the season starts you'll hit the ground running and you can make up for a bad year last year and get the handicap tumbling down. Sounds like you could be down to 12 if not lower if today is anything to go by. Glad the mojo is back

    15 pars, 2 birds and a bogey, pretty happy with that.
