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

    First round for the club champs today, glorious conditions if a little foggy at times, but warm and no wind. Birdies on 1 and 2 put me in uncharted territory, and a third birdie on the 5th was surreal. Played pretty well for the rest of the round to card an 80 nett 70 3 under CSS.

    The resulting 0.6 cut sees me cut to 9.0 and the first time I can call myself a single figure golfer woop woop. I'm chuffed as that has been a goal for the last few years now but it took longer than I expected to get there.

    Saturday roll up today. Started like a proper golfer and level par gross through five. That poxy sixth hole derailed me and lost a ball at nine was annoying. Bad start to the back nine but finished nice and strongly for a reasonable 33 points. Enough good stuff in there to give me some encouragement for the competition tomorrow and a good round and handicap cut feels likes it's on the horizon. Playing decent but still those annoying one or two silly holes to get rid of

    I played today with a couple of chaps from a Blackpool footy forum, to even things up I played of the yellows.
    I was rather pleased with how I played, the yellow course is 700yds longer than the red and I went round in 87 which included wasting 4 shots leaving the ball in bunkers. I reckon that it would be a par 75 based on ladies yardages.

    Good day at the office for me today. Summer medal and shot a 77 nett 61 for comfortably my best round ever off the whites. Good enough to win 90%of competitions though not today. My PP shot a 3 under 67 off his 6 h/c.

    Happy enough to get pipped by such a score and just chuffed to be getting a decent cut of 1.8 strokes.

    Been trending this way all week after shooting 78 on weds in a non qualifier (including a 5-putt!!!) and shooting 41 points in a work golf/drinking session at West Lothian GC yesterday.

    All while the weather has been glorious (aside from the odd thunderstorm).

    Played yesterday at Stanton on the Wolds in a pairs open.

    Best green I have putted on this year, quick and true.

    £25 each to play and it was a really nice course.

    Betterball medal, Went out in 29 shots and we was on fire (Dan had 4 birdies, I did help honestly ) picked up a few more on the back 9 then dropped 2 shots on the closing 4 holes, ended up 5th place but managed to sneak the best gross prize and won a mizuno cart bag.
    10 hcp and rising.
