    Wink Re: I played today and...(Rolling thread)

    My first game back after injuring my back and I'm delighted with a net 71 ,including a birdie, a triple and a some silly double bogeys.
    From the back tees and heavy going the estimated CSS is 71, so fingers crossed maybe a small cut .
    But happily no back pain

    Great effort first time back. Shame about the triple and doubles but plenty to be positive about

    Played Crewe yesterday against Cheshire, only pair to win in afternoon having halved in the morning being dormy 2 down, good course.

    Then played Royal St Davids today and will never have it more at your mercy as dead flat calm and all bunkers GUR, disappointed to only score 36 points with a lost ball. Did pick up bottle of Famous Grouse for NP to ease the pain
    Handicap : 5.2

    I'll see you there Davie

    I played there a couple of weeks ago in a pairs open with larrymac and I'm glad I did tbh, there's a few blind shots etc.

    We were playing well until the heavens opened on the 12th and we got caught in the rain totally soaked through. We had a good score going until the par 3 14 then the wheels fell off. Ended up with 39pts.

    Re: I played today and...(Rolling thread)

    4 days golfing on the spin for me to (in my head) finish the season off whilst the weather is still semi decent.  

    Saturday was a medal at Lymm in which I shot a pants 82. Two trebles and a double saw all my shots disappear over the course of 3 holes, but despite 0.1, the rest was pretty tidy. Then onto Bolton Old Links on Sunday morning. It was the day after their 36 hole trophy (Lancs order of Merit event) and the course was in superb condition. Again chomped up a few holes and the greens there always rip me a new one..... but we both played pretty steady and I lost a good match to Qwerty on the last.  

    Monday I finally made use of a Cheshire Card and played Sandiway with NWJ ..... I thought my deal was good but he get's it for £20 notes on a reciprocal......At least Dick Turpin wore a mask when he robbed people. Sandiway was superb. It's one of my favourites in the area and surprisingly it was pretty empty. We both played some great golf off the tips and his birdie birdie finish took the spoils with 36 points to my 32.  

    Finally, was up at the crack of dawn for a full English before playing Mere yesterday. I've played the course a few times now and was a bit sceptical of going given it had become more of a hotel resort type place. I needn't have been as it was in fantastic condition and despite a fairly slow round with a bunch of 4 balls infront, we enjoyed a great day. Luckily there was a huge gap behind us so we were never pushed and ended up chipping and putting whilst waiting to tee off on a few holes. I managed my best round of the 4 days with 4 over gross, again off the back tee's too, but, weirdly, I was a little disappointed as I had 14 pars and 4 bogeys and missed 3 or 4 good birdie chances. Still, nice to stripe it and take the spoils of the best 5 handicap in Lytham.  

    So, a great 4 days in short sleeves and that's my season pretty much done now.....8.2 down to 6.6, then upto 6.8 is a pretty good one, and of course the big 'W' at the Sunningdale trip was a highlight !!!! Although that one really low competition round has still alluded me. Roll on 2018.

    Aye... loads of blind shots Stu from first to last. I'm getting a guesting there next week to sample the course conditions as i've only ever played it in Summer..... & I know our place is playing very differently, Summer to Autumn.
    Giving it my best shot & only hope that I'm a lot better than I was at Woodhall Spa in the Bridgestone Final.
    Anyway Stu, the Sandmoor Carvery is legendary so If your game's at bit off, there's still something to look forward to. Just hope I'm in there before you

    Re: I played today and...(Rolling thread)

    Annual trip over the Pennines to Meltham today for a 4BBB, I really had an up and down round some great golf but interspersed with rubbish, a good number of pars plus 2 birdies, should have been 3 but missed from 3 feet.

    We did come 3rd and I had a 2 for which I got 4 ProV1s.
