    Re: Eden/Strathtyrum tournaments at St Andrews

    74 yesterday on the New in a decent wind and intermittent rain, hit the ball rubbish but somehow scored well. Sat somewhere in the 30's after day 1.

    Today on the Eden in as sunny calm conditions as I imagine you ever get in this part of the world, my shoddy ball striking finally caught up with me in the last few holes and I signed for a 79 (with 6 penalty strokes) which on that course in those conditions is probably like a 90 anywhere else. 75 would have seen me qualify (countback dependant).
    Finished in the low 100's to secure a day off with LQ.

    Dan who came with us qualified with 72-71.

    Good luck Louise

    Unlucky guys but well done Louise!

    Interested to hear your thoughts on the Eden course? I think it is very underrated with some really great holes. First 5 are all good along with 7th, 8th, 11th, 14th then 16 and 17. How did you all get on at the par 3 8th? Bit of an 'unusual' green

    I'm not saying it's a bad course, in fact I remember more holes from there than the New, but with little wind it really was there to make a score on.

    The 8th I hit a good shot right at the flag but it pitched 4' past the hole and just ran off the back. That's a tough hole no matter what the wind! I reckon you have about 20' to land the ball in for it to stay on the green.

    Yeah, I've always found it easier when it's into the wind as the ball stops quicker. Last year it was playing downwind all week and the only way to play it was a long pitch and run then try to run the ball up the green. Anything landing on the top was straight over the back.

    Played the Eden last Friday, after the Old on Thursday. Wasn't impressed with a couple of holes towards the end of the front nine, 7 & 8, but I thought the back nine, especially the finish was superb. 8 was playing downwind, and just held the back edge, but thought it was a nothing hole. 7 has a great green but the rest of the hole was meh.
    Give it big humpties

    My iPad won't load pics but you would be gutted with the weather.

    its been perfect for the whole week

    Played the castle course today with Mr Cheerful, really enjoyed it and can't see what all the fuss is about the greens.

    fantastic week so far.

    Dan got beat in his 2nd round.

    good luck tomorrow Louise.

    Eden course has really surprised me, I really enjoyed it as I was expecting it to be very average.

    Thought the 7th hole is nice but agree about the 8th.

    Lad from Nuneaton got in off 7 ? Do you get preference if you played the year before?

    Some good scoring https://salt.intelligentgolf.co.uk/c...3340&preview=1

    Do you mean just into the competition in the first place?

    120 are fastest finger first, and 120 are balloted.

    Then top 64 gross into scratch matchplay and best 32 nett (excluding any that made it through gross) into handicap matchplay.
