    Re: Annual end of term report

    Only my second year back on the course and it's been a good year. Broke 100 for the first time at a society day outing at Craigielaw. The body may struggle, but the head still knows what type of shots it wants the body to play. By mid August I had managed to bring the swing together and managed to break 90. Here's hoping I can manage to play a bit more next year keep progressing downwards.

    Re: Annual end of term report

    Swing changes mean I'm in the best place I've been in years... Although working away all week is really killing my scores as my club has comps EVERY Saturday so virtually all my golf is get home on a Friday night then play a comp next morning... rarely have time to loosen up properly or practice and other commitments mean Sat afternoons and Sundays are not often available for golf... Handicap up 0.9 over the season... but I'll get it back "NEXT YEAR!" (hey, never heard that before)

    On the positive side, went to Augusta in April, played St Andrews and Sunningdale - in winning Team in Porthcawl Winter Open .... just back from 2 weeks in Algarve , 9 rounds in 2 weeks and worst score was 31 points....

    This Winter, I've got to lose half a stone and do some strengthening work... and will do some damage next season!

    Re: Annual end of term report

    OK i would have said.

    23 comps with well over 3/4 buffer or a cut. Handicap a shot lower.

    Won the handicap CC, a Silver Trophy and a medal. Won a few Quid in prize money in friendly comps at Tain.

    downside Aug and Sept when the course at its best no comps and was playing well so gone off the boil a bit.

    Main positive though is almost solved my driving problems of the last 2 years

    Re: Annual end of term report

    I managed to touch single figures, if only for one week but on that basis i'll give myself an A as it was somewhere I never ever thought I could get to.

    In reality though , I've finished 0.1 higher that where I started . I now have hardware that I'm 100% happy with and will use the Winter to bed in my new irons so hopefully can hit the ground running next season with a view to getting back to and staying at Single figures.

    Re: Annual end of term report

    Started the year on 8.6, currently 9.1. 2 cuts (0.6 total) 3 buffers and 11 0.1's back

    Really havent scored well with a card in my hand but in practice i've hit three sub par rounds including a PB of 3 under 67. Sublime to rediculous is a fine way of describing my game....yesterdays competition round a prime example with 5 birdies, 4 pars, 6 bogies and 3 doubles!!!

    Made a subtle change to my grip and how my hands hang at address a few weeks ago and I suddenly seem to be hitting the ball out of the middle a lot more, giving me more height to my shots and more distance. Luckily the season doesn end here in Suffolk and I have qualifiers all through the winter so hopefully can make further progress and drag the handicap back down to where it was at the start of the year.

    A decidedly average C

    Re: Annual end of term report

    strike the ball much better now

    won a team event in june and two single events in september

    good progress

    out of past 7 rounds 6 have been under 100

    the 6th was 104 I think and it was blowing a gale and I came 3rd in the stapleford event only 3 points off winning so was pleased

    Re: Annual end of term report

    Started at 3.7, up to 4.2. Been a very inconsistent year again for me. Some flashes of really great golf, but too much wild golf also and i just can't afford that when only having 4 shots to play with.

    My best golf has come outside of medals etc. Played some crackers this year though;

    On this same note...

    A year ago I think my best score round 18 holes was 93 or 94, whereas it's now 85.

    A year ago I was chopping and changing drivers trying to find one I could hit, whereas now I have one I really like and it's one of the better clubs in my bag.

    A year ago I couldn't putt to save my life, but now, I can't putt to save my life.
