played in the Roll up friday, drawn with 3 guys that don't play with us that often all mid to high teen handicaps, , never ready to play, didn't look where there balls were going and generally not aware what was going on.

on one hole the 3 of them where all looking for a ball on the right, went over who's ball are we looking for? (there were 4 balls on the fairway) one says so and so , no mines there, so the 3 of them were looking for no ball at all:LOL: one of them was in a buggy and kept going to his ball hitting it then going to his next shot only he would be right in front of one of the others and had to kept having to be asked to move... it was like herding cats:LOL:

Sat 4 man team seasom closer, we were all terrible, missed puts all over the place... and it was slow...at least it didn't rain

Shot an 82 around darenth valley for 39 points
Won our match 9&8
Tried chipping with one hand - no idea why and it was good. Had 3 up & downs for par which is a miracle for me

Played Wycombe Heights yesterday. Driving was excellent but everything else was just bad. Hit 75% fairways, but the course felt really long, and getting used to winter golf now - seemed like every par 4 was driver, 5 wood/hybrid and then still short of the green. Fatted a couple of pitches as well, plus putting was terrible so never likely to score well. Ended up with 92 for 29 points. Only four pars - at least one of them was on the 18th which raised the mood fractionally before my post-round pint.

36 holes at Ganton.

Sat, lovey later tee times, just about finished before dark(must get darker 20 mins earlier that side of the country:unsure:). Played really well, but the putts just wouldn't drop, scored 10 over, only 2 bunkers visited

Sunday, all still marvellous weather, scored 7 over, didn't play as well as Sat but putts dropped and didn't visit one bunker, that's a result.

If I could play golf like that everytime I played I would be a happy bunny, dream on.

Played at my new club yesterday with a mate. Both unofficial 20 handicappers so just had a scratch match. I was pretty chuffed to go round 21 over but he beat me by 2 holes with a 17 over - absolute bandit!

Definitely leaving shots out there though, I managed a birdie, 5 pars and 6 bogeys which is great for me. But obviously that meanswhen it went wrong it went really wrong!

36 pts today which is both the most I’ve had in ages and enough to take the spoils. 2 lost balls and at least 3 fats proves there’s better in there.

The lad we play (off 1) was -5 gross at the turn! Shame he couldn’t hang on, made a bit of a mess coming in. Ended level hc

Now I’m off to tyre kick a high moi, low spin driver... 🤪

Shot 95 at Wickham Park. Can't seem to shake off the habit of having 4 or 5 bad holes in the middle of each round which is proving rather costly each time.

Had 35 points off the yellows on Saturday (Captains Day). Played a roll up yesterday off the whites and although I only had 28 points I thought for the large part I hit the ball far better than the score indicates. There is a good score bubbling close to the surface

9 holes late yesterday, pairs matchplay, 5 pars, 3 bogies, messed up the 4th which would have been a double bogey at worse, only because 1 of the others was on in 2 and I short sighted myself, so had to punch a low shot under a large branch but carry a greenside bunker, which I did but I ran off the back of the green, would have played it differently if not matchplay, but still very happy overall.

Playing Lindrick in a pairs BB Open on Thursday, hoping to keep banging in these pars to put some decent supportive scores on the card

Couple of nice days to book end the weekend. Preston on Friday was superb and played a maxi tours event at Stockport (which always impresses) yesterday. Both were in amazing condition. Played just below handicap both days too which always helps.

Good day at Lindrick Golf Club in a pairs BB.

It was very tough in parts, definitely a course you need to play a few times to get the feel of the greens, but not knowing where some fairways squeeze in and where to drive to so to not then be blocked, we all found the front 9 very tough but the back 9 very scoreable.

So much so, we only had 14 on the front but 21 on the back, for a respectable 35 points.

Very friendly club, excellent food before & after, didn’t get to have a good look around at its history due to one-way systems.

Look forward to returning as only 90 minutes up the road. 0C7D0C18-FFCD-4550-BA14-132AC04C0047.jpeg

After getting my official handicap back at 20 following what felt like 3 terrible rounds, I played today with a supplementary card in hand.

Played much better, not really in any trouble off the tee and ended up 13 over gross for a total of 45 points. That should be a good cut then.

Actually pretty glad that I did this card as I would have felt pretty bad if I shot that in the comp on Saturday.
