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

    Played a quick 9, opened eagle birdie and still only managed 2 over par.

    Son shot level par but I was 3 up when we decided to call it a day (back 9 looked so slow.....) key thing is was a rare victory for once !

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

    Played 11 holes today with the friend who inspired me to learn golf. He's been playing nearly fifty years, off 14. I've been on course since June last year - no handicap yet so pretending to be a 36. (Being a girl and all!). Aim was to enjoy it, have fun and get some good advice and experience. Achieved all that. Not so thrilled with the 14 on the par 5 though but it was worth taking the strokes for the lessons learned on how to get out of all the trouble I put myself in. Hey ho.

    . But then, I took a closer look at the card and worked out ...handicaps applied, stroke play he beat me by just 6 strokes, on match play basis we halved one hole, I took four and he took six. Stableford basis he beat me by a single point. I am thrilled!!!!
    Especially as I played off the men's winter tees with him 😀

    Well, thrilled and now severely ****'d off about that 14😩😩

    Doesnt really count, i know but just been on the range for the first time in 4 months after a broken ankle. Very excited, but took it reasonably easy as still cant do much turning etc. Only took wedges, 9&7 but was hitting it reasonably well considering.

    So happy to be back out there but a still a way to go recovery wise.

    No, but the £25 pot I walked away with will pay for both

    Knobbed it around, played like a knob so that's fair...
    Struggled to find the middle of any club except the driver which, perversely, I hit quite well.....
    The Golfing Gods have me a birdie on the last - good driver, good 4 wood, good chip to 3 feet and one putt.
    Only time I strung more than a couple of decent shots together....
    Fragger only played nine as he had a slight altercation with a Mercedes in the lane leading up to the club..
    One tyre gone, the other set to go, bit of bodywork but suspension and anti-roll bar knackered and drive shaft misaligned...
    But I'll let him fill in the details..😙
