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

    Rocked up at the club at 5.30 tonight to play in the nine hole social and went to hit a couple of balls in the nets before I went out. On the way down there was a seagull hovering around and making a right din so I thought it must have a chick somewhere close. Reached the nets and a magpie and large crow flew out of them which I thought was a bit strange. Inside the nets was a young buzzard that was caught up, the other birds had probably chased it in and were attacking it. I managed to wrap a wind jacket around it, untangle it and then released it. Unfortunately it was chased again by at least half a dozen crows and magpies as soon as it was airborne.

    After that the golf was pretty mundane, 19 points and nowhere near the prizes.

    The weather has proper screwed up my game. Blowing a gale and snapped a tree in half which decided to drop on some electricity lines again. So the nine hole back nine comp was cancelled.
    managed to hit a 242yd pile driver three wood. Me longest ever. And a similar drive distance. Also lost three balls.
    no power to the 19th so no chance of any sherbets in the clubhouse.

    No real ale from the hand pump? Probably, but no electricity means no till so no service. Technology strikes again.

    And it was.
    Some very extraordinary swings that produced visits to parts of the course I normally only see whilst playing different holes...
    Perfect preparation for the qualifier on Friday and Forest Pines on Sunday
    Could be a long weekend.........
    Prefer to think of it as not peaking too soon

    Played Formby today in gales. Beat me up but loved every minute of it. However, Hillsides back 9 must have been close to unplayable in that wind, and for that reason, Formby has just jumped it as my 2nd favourite course.

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

    Knowing we won't be playing this weekend, we decided to squeeze nine holes in last night, at Playgolf in Northwick Park, Harrow. It's a short course (two par 4s, seven par 3s) but all the holes are meant to be replicas of holes from major courses*. Don't know how accurate they are to their real counterparts, but it does mean some of them are quite tricky.

    For eight holes I played solid bogey golf - not as many pars as I'd like (one) but only one double bogey so I was +8 after 8. Then it all went tits up on the last as I fatted two tee shots into the lake. I realised afterwards the problem, I think I was just trying to smack the ball too bloody hard to get it there, rather than just trusting the club and hitting it smooth. I was that annoyed that after we holed out I walked back to the tee to hit another one. Cleared it easily that time of course. Oh well, still a nice little round on a lovely evening.

    *according the hole names on the scorecard, the holes are: Riviera, Ganton, Oak Hill, Belfry, Royal Birkdale, Royal Troon, August 16th, Walton Heath, Augusta 12th.
    • TaylorMade R11-S (12°)
    • Adams Speedline Fast 12 5 wood (17°)
    • Benross HTX 3 hybrid (20°)
    • Callaway Steelhead XR irons 5-PW
    • Cleveland RTX-3 (50°)
    • Cleveland RTX Rotex 2.0 (56°)
    • Dunlop Wedge (60°)
    • Odyssey Works 1W putter
    • DX2/Optix
