Turns out my 35 points were good enough for third place in the pro's competition yesterday. Feel I left a lot out there and 4 points in three holes really derailed me from 13-15 but considering the lack of competition golf and a few swing changes I'm working on it's encouraging

Cracking day today. Shot 81 with a birdie on 9. I had 5 birdie putts, not easy ones but still 5 chances. Only missed one fairway. Controlled driving. And it was windy.

Some of my golf shots are worthy of TV at the moment. Honestly. I'm amazing myself.

'Int golf great.

37pts today in strong winds so quite pleased with that. However, missed three putts of around 2ft so need to sort that part of the game out (longer putts are fine).

This went mildly better than yesterday. 1st drive straight into the left ditch again but at least I could find it, iron went OK. From the 2nd drive onwards I kept half of them on teh fairway, half of them left again. No idea why, think I am to upright for them. Irons went better than yesterday, actually getting some flight out of them and hitting (but often rolling off) greens. But 20 puts for 9 holes doesn't allow a good score.
Highlight was a flop shot on a short sided flag on the green within 2 yards which I ruined with a 3 put. But that shot was a turning point on teh 5th when it all started to go a little better.

On more 9 tomorrow, hopefully I can start where I left off today.

yesterday afternoon, went out with a couple of 5 day members who need a card marked for handicapping purposes, steady on the front nine, a three put didn't help. but returned 1 over hc, then something happened, I went the next 9 holes with 7 pars and 2 bogeys, so a total of 85 blows, or 7 under my handicap, whichever way you wish to look at it.

First out with Fragger at 7 this morning.....a bit of lightnrain but the gales of the last 2 days had calmed down.
Ballsed up the 2nd hole completely but after that was pretty steady.
Found the middle of the club more often than not and the short game was pretty hot.
Turned with 17 points to lead by 3
After my customary bogey of the 10th I went birdie, per, par, par to rack up 12 points in 4 holes.
Slightly weak finish with a single point on 17 after finding trees and long grass but a nice regulation par at the past sealed a 20 point back 9 to, once more, dismantle the YotFragger by 8...
Equals my best score since joining so pretty satisfying, although it means I'll probably play like a dog tomorrow..:LOL:

Liking the look of @Crow's 65s - anyway...

Looking out of my window and hoping the rain goes off - think it will. having a knock with couple of mates at 6pm and keen to see if I can continue a run that has seen my last three rounds (s/ford) be 37, 38 and 34 pts. And NO 'passes'...:)

Just checked results from Saturday and my 34pts has me in joint 10th. So that's OK.

Interesting though - the conditions on Saturday were difficult and 7 of the top 10 stableford points were single figure players. Other 3 being h/cap 10, 12 and 18 - with the 18 being a rapidly improving youngster.

One of those days where you can’t hit an iron shot but your short game is a reel of Phil Mickelsons best bits.

My putter must have known my new scotty has been despatched!

I had that last week. Hit the ball as poorly as I can remember from tee to green and not one club in the bag working. However I chipped, pitched and escaped from bunkers brilliantly and still cobbled 34 points

Played last night and made it back just before dark, damn sprinklers got us on the 18th 😂
Best post lockdown round yet, and best in a while with a 1 under handicap 82. 21 points front 9 but hit a little wobble 12-14 for 16 points back 9 finishing with a birdie on 18 for 4 points. The chipping practice earlier in the week paid off!
3 putted 12, 13 & 16 annoyingly!

I had the exact same problem, clubs just kept slipping in my hands in the heat and had nothing further than 80 yard strikes with my 56.. painful

Another day of mixed striking but much improved on the back 9 with the highlight being a birdie 4 on the SI 1 tough par 5. Another big plus for me was a double bogey free round.

Got home and have that feeling of... I could go and play again ;-)

As anticipated...played like a dog...frontn9 anyway.
2 bits of good luck compounded by 3 or 4 bits of bad luck
Onto the backm9 and my customary 4 on the 10th.....:rolleyes:
Then went birdie, birdie to bring some respectability to proceedings..
Round summed up by my 5th shot of the par 5 18th...
About 5 feet, slightly downhill, slightly right to left I had it on line and on pace.
It turned a fraction as it got to the cup, spun all the way around the edge to finish, literally, teetering over the edge defying gravity....even the breeze wouldn't blow it in....
Fragger's turn to win today but none of us played particularly well....
