    A year ago I couldn't putt to save my life, but now, I can't putt to save my life.
    year ago my best round was an 87 on a course near me.. but it has a lot of par 3s so its easier than the course down the road that my best score was 98

    this year ive hit 95 on the course I hit 98 on so a 3 shot improvement

    ive hit a 90 (when I had my best round I think ive played) on a par 72

    and ive broken 100 on 16 occasions this year

    last year I reckon it was a lot less (without looking)

    A solid C😢
    To be fair it was going to be a difficult year, moving from a reasonably straightforward course to a much tougher and longer one was always going to mean a struggle for a while.
    Loving playing at The Zoo and I'm starting to get to grips with where to put the ball and how it's going to react on slopes etc.
    Hit buffer in then last 2 comps of the season after 4 X 0.1s on the bounce.
    It's not a course where driver is the first choice off the tee on most holes - for me anyway.
    I probably only use the driver 5 times and even then I don't have to - so the fairway woods are getting a lot more use off the tee.
    Par is 73 and I'm still to break 80 in a proper round although I shot 80 last week..
    My game disappeared for the H4H games, indeed at Hankley I doubt I've played as badly for years...
    But it's back and humming... looking forward to the Spring and hopefully getting back to a more respectable handicap.

    Re: Annual end of term report

    There is no end of term where I play comps every week throughout the whole year, joys of living in the West Country.

    Up and down year this year for me so far up to 10 twice and back to 9.1 currently with a years start at 8.6.

    Turned sixty last week so not to bad.
    Played some nice golf but some bad golf as well.
    so B+ as I have a major playoff to play due to OP being injured , so if I win will be a good A.

    Re: Annual end of term report

    Crap, started on 4.1 and finished on 4.2 but I only played 6 rounds of golf all year and just 1 in a comp.

    Will be back at Silloth on Solway next season and will be expecting to play more golf but it will be exclusively competition golf as work and young family mean course time is limited.

    Re: Annual end of term report

    My two goals for the year, were firstly to keep my handicap competitive, and to keep it at 10, preferably in the 9.x region. I played enough comps to keep it competitive, I did sneak up to 11 for one round, but a nice cut saw me back to 9.9. Add in the trip to Sunningdale & New Zealand, plus a 72 in a practice round - will give myself a B+.

    Re: Annual end of term report

    8.2 down to 6.6 then upto 6.8. I'm pleased with my season although for a while I fancied getting to six, so i do feel slightly peeved. I played 16 qualifiers in total (most ever) and had 8 x 0.1's , 4 buffers and 4 cuts. Half the rounds were in the 70's (breaking 80 is always a goal) which was my most ever. Whilst I've not threatened any club competitions, a big highlight was taking home the trophy and a few sheckels from the Sunningdale and New Zealand forum trip !  

    Course wise , Sunningdale, Hoylake, Hamilton Island, New Zealand and Sandiway the favourites this year. I've probably played more 'opens' than ever with friends from work and also plenty of outings with the NW crew. Local courses that I have enjoyed in social games/opens would include Stockport, Pleasington, Fairhaven, Hesketh, Manchester, Mere, SAOL, Bramhall Park, Huyton & Prescot, Warrington and also Bolton Old Links. All were in fantastic condition, as was my home club Lymm. Safe to say i've really enjoyed the season................ Here's hoping for a mild Winter !!!  
    H/cap 6.7,
