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

    My first round after a lesson, Iíve had enough of being 8-10 shots over handicap; each round.

    I was ticking along nicely when I stood over my 2nd shot from the middle of the 14th fairway, despite some brutal putting, I then chunked it in the pond and 3 putted for a triple! 3 bunker shots on the next for a double, and then I couldnít find my ball after a drive on 16 led me to NR, a couple of parís to finish left me feeling ok after my recent lesson and swing changes - a step in the right direction, but need to do better.

    A bit late, but played yesterday at Centurion in the Rick Garg Memorial day. Golf was not great, though I was ticking along ok with 24 points after 13 holes, until I made the mistake of having a Peroni on the 14th. Think I scored two points on the last five holes. Had to be done to toast an old and not forgotten personal friend, and that of the forum. Was great to have Rick's brother Paul walking round with us, and we had a lot of laughs which Rick would have approved of.

    Nice touch from the club to make the day a board competition. Just shows what Centurion thought of Rick. Great to catch up with Karen again, and to celebrate the England win in such great company.

    Big thanks to Rick Wilson(RW1986) for the invite to play, though he did make the feeble excuse that his wife was going into labour to avoid playing with me.

    Shot a 95... Very strange round, had planned to walk off after 9 as I just wasn't really getting into the swing of it. Stood on the 9th tee, 280yard par 4 (Downhill) thought to myself, nothing to lose so pulled the driver out. Hit the green from the tee and proceeded to 3 putt to make a par. Extremely disappointing. Very up and down but played the last 4 holes to 2 over par with a few decent shots meaning i left with somewhat of a smile on my face.

    Re: I played today and......

    Finally managed to put a whole round together (almost) for a new PB of 80! Still find myself feeling disappointed after a silly 3 putt in 16 and then taking a 7 on the 18th (par 5).

    I knew beating 80 was on the cards so hit hybrid off the tee so as not to tempt myself in going for the green in 2 which involved a shot of 200 yards plus with the green being 10 yards over a pond.

    Think adrenaline kicked in coz my 200 yard hybrid decided to cover best part of 240. Still a lay up with the 7 iron would leave me a full wedge in. Queue the next shot flying too. Leaving me 60 yards over a pond at a flag tucked over a bunker. Obviously I just dink any old shot to the middle of the green and 2 putt. At least that what I did with the second attempt having tried to flip a **** high off a bare lie and knifing into the drink!

    arggghh! My 78 lost with one stupid shot!

    Re: I played today and......

    Busy few days of golf. Estepona GC on Friday and played some decent golf in parts. Apparently a lot of work has been done recently to improve the course and there were two or three greens that had a lot of sand on the surrounds to help that improvement. Home in the early hours of Saturday, a few hours sleep and then Captains Day. Not the best preparation for a big comp and it showed as the card was littered with doubles. Today it was County Captains Day and despite three blobs on the card the golf was a lot better. It will be good top go back to work tomorrow, just to slow down a bit.
