    Annual end of term report

    So it's pretty much end of the season now, time for your skool report.

    My season......started at 5, went up to 6 in the medal a couple of weeks ago but if the CSS is kind to me from Saturday then I'll be back down to 5 for the winter.

    Won the West Hill mixed foursomes, 2nd in the Parkstone invitational 4BBB and qualified in the top 16 on Saturday for a club major winter KO competition.

    Courses wise, got a trip to Ireland in a couple of weeks where I'm playing 5 rounds and will have played 13 new courses this year and got my total number of top 100 tracks up to 78.

    So after a slow start and a decent end to the season I will give myself a B-

    Started on 18, still on 18. A few 0.1s and a small cut but no real improvement. Must do better. D.

    Handicap 18. Bag full of Taylor Made with a bit of Dunlop thrown in.

    Re: Annual end of term report

    Started at 17.6 and currently at 15.4- hit a low of 14.7 but have struggled the last month due to a swing change which should stop my thins when I get it right, which I am seeing an improvement on.

    Played a few more courses but was hoping to play more opens this year.

    I say i'd give myself a B. I was hoping to get down to 14 but had set myself a season goal of 15.

    Started on 5.7 and gone up to 6.9. Only on cut, 0.2. Very happy with my game, especially driving and long irons. Unfortunately there's been too many occasions where I've turned a bogey into a double or worse. Probably lost more balls this year than I have done for years.

    Perhaps not played as much as I would like, probably 20 rounds.

    B+. Started on 8.1 finished on 6.9. Found a new driver I really like after a couple of years of searching
    Won nothing as an individual but we won a team season long Foresomes league.
    I’ve not played enough away days, but the ones I have were pretty good.
    Need to work on my ball striking & make time for things like HFH.

    Re: Annual end of term report

    Handicap down from 5.2 to 4.3 which should suggest a good year. But I'm not overly happy.
    The cut came from 2 level par rounds which each earned 0.6 cuts.
    Too often this year I turned a good front 9, quite often level or under par, into buffers rather than cuts. Admittedly the back 9 is harder but I should have had a load of 0.2 or 0.3 cuts this season, but turned them into handicap or buffer instead.
    I need to look into why - course management, fatigue, changing attitude due to current position (protecting rather than attacking?) etc

    A very frustrating year.

    But I have had some good experiences:

    Played some top courses - Porthcawl, Sunningdale, Hankley, Hollinwell to name a few
    A few Pro-ams, including being the 9 hole leader (even better than all the pro's). I was 4 under gross.
    Runner up in the club championship, beating several scratch & plus players (lost by 6 to a +4 handicapper) with only 2 of under 150 for the 2 rounds and I won the net club champ's prize.
    3 great forum meets meeting more brilliant people.

    So all in all 7 out of 10
