Out on my own this afternoon. Definitely striking the ball more consistently since my lesson a month ago. Scored 91 (-3 net) and that could have been better but for a 9 on the 14th.

40 points yesterday in the Saturday roll up comp. 19 out 21 in...happy with that. Gross 84 (19 hc). Definitely not enough to win though as a lad scored 45 points!

Utterly ridiculous round today in the January Stableford. Blobbed the 2nd, 3rd & 4th so seemingly dead before I even began. Somehow recovered to 15 points for the front nine though. Another blob on the par 3 11th. Recover with three pars in a row at the 13th-15th. Made it to 30 points with two holes left - blob them both.

So 30 points, with 6 blobs, and 6 pars. How stupid. I could have been two completely different golfers out there. One of them couldn't even hit a ball, the other one a tidy and consistent golfer.

To make matters worse, it looks like my mate has won it with 41. Jammy git.

Thanks!

Competitions but not qualifiers. We go down to 14 hole team comps in the winter to allow more people to play. Myself and another player from our group carried on for 18. I did finish out every hole though, as obviously my scoring for our team was high 😂

We are playing a short course but it’s normal greens and only 2 significantly further forward tees. Everything else is around the same length just off mats or spare tee boxes.
Just realised you where the guy I was speaking with on Reddit! Ha, small world.

Didn’t score well today but new driver is like nothing I’ve used before. So so good, if I can hit shots like I’ve hit over the last 2 rounds over the entire next season I’m dropping shots for sure.

Last winter league group game, and needed to win to go through. One up playing the last and all came down to a birdie putt from 5 feet for our opponents. If it went in we were out of comp, miss it and we win the group. Fortunately for us the 18th green at Blackmoor claimed another victim and we won.(y)

Spent about 90 mins at the range today with my shiney new m3. Went to pedham place as they have Top Tracer.

Whilst it may not be a gc2, it along with my eye could see that no matter what setting I went with I couldn’t get it past my current driver. It launched ridiculously high. Now that could be due to the shaft, but as I got it cheap so it’ll be moving on soon. Fortunately the bro in law is a sucker for TM gear.....

Went round their front 9 in 40 too which was nice, new putter seems to be behaving like a new club does for its first few weeks at least.

Lovely day at Close House, Colt course, as a guest. I've played it once before, a windy day, off the whites, not playing well. Thankfully today was a nice day, we played off the yellows and I'm playing okay at the moment. Good job too, blimey there are some tight tee shots, tight landing areas. Drove it really well, short but straight. Irons took a little time to get going, I was swinging too shallow, but once I got the angle of attack right they were going really nicely. The only real weakness was my putting but I put that down to the greens being woolly for winter :unsure:

The Colt is a marmite course, it's hilly and tough which is not a great combination, but the shorter tees allowed me to appreciate the course design more. It really is very good and an excellent test. If you are going to play it then think carefully about which tees you play off. Your ego may say whites but unless you are a decent hitter off the tee then play off the yellows and just enjoy the course. Oh yes, don't carry a bag, get an electric trolley for the day (y)

For the 3rd time since Christmas since having mid November until the 28th December off, in transparency I was close to quitting!

On bobbly winter greens another 40 point round with some bobbly putting woes. So from three rounds 41, 37, 40 points I’m quite refreshed.

Usual Sunday roll up off the whites. Shot 34 points including a frustrating blow out at our SI 18 8th and a couple of poor holes just after the turn. Turned out in tricky conditions 35 points got it done so pretty frustrated but still managing to hit buffer zones despite still having a dose of the lefts with the irons like yesterday and generally not feeling I'm swinging it well. Far more consistent than I use to be
