Won the roll up this morning with 41 points.

Was 6 over after 14 but let myself start thinking about how low I could go and immediately went double/treble/double with the short game falling apart a bit.

Hopefully next time I'm in the same position I'll handle it a bit better and just concentrate on the next shot. Happy days though.

Nice one Martin
That’s a chunky cut, hope you haven’t screwed yourself for the next 18 months 👍

Yes it’s a stupid game, Great...yes, but Stupid ( with apologies to Mr Olivander) 😎
Definitely going to take a few rounds to get use to. Fortunately no comps now for three weeks. Don't get a shot at my nemesis, our par 3 sixth hole so definitely time to conquer those demons once and for all. The other shot (SI 15) was a par five so in my head at least that should be easier to get use to

Cheers mate ! I appreciate it ! Just nice to know it is possible haha
Thought I was a proper bandit yesterday so imagine looking at the results this morning and seeing my 45 was beaten by a 48 pointer ! Couldn't quite believe it.
I haven't really been taking advantage of the teeing up rules etc as i see it as making the game easier but seems to be suiting some.

played the Nairn Dunbar winter Stableford (3/4), quite windy. played ok for the front nine (level par) then folded like a cheap suit on the back , with one particular poor put from a foot left short:(

Played in our Saturday sweep, although not particularly well. Only managed 22 points. the round wasn't short on incidents though.

On the 7th tee I was off first, it was still quite grey at around 9.45, and the group ahead were over the rise and the two on the right were a good bit down. I teed off and hit my Sunday best only to hear some shouts, two of them were just over the ridge and their clothes were quite dark and were blending in to the trees on the horizon - as we have no trees in the course now ;) it was just rolling out as it arrived at them though.
We get to the thirteenth tee and the 12th green, par 3 is next to us, no shout and a ball hits my bag and just misses one of our group, no shout. Later he did say he had lost it in the air.

On the par 5 14th one of our group hit his tee shot well down the fairway and the group ahead had a straggler who was 50yds behind the rest, again the ball just rolled out to where he was standing.

Fast forward to 17th tee and not realising the wind had swung round in about half an hour I am gauging the tee shot thinking i may just get to the ridge, however the wind was now more behind and I hit my Sunday best, it flew the ridge and rolled out between them again. As the walked off the 18th tee I apologised profusely about it and was mortified for doing it twice.

I haven't been involved in many games with a similar incident but to have 4 in the one round was unreal. Lesson learned for me, always be aware of where the group ahead is.

Played Saturday for a wee knock about with my father and one of my usual Saturday PPs and hit a respectable 35 points. 16 on the front and 19 on the back. Highlight being that I finished with par,par,par which I haven't done very often; also had a cheeky birdie on the 7th - lovely drive, fantastic approach shot and a nice putt. All and all a good round of golf with my dad/usuall PP with some nice golf played on occasions by all of us. Went round with the same ball all round too which is not the norm for me!!

Went out in the roll up today off the whites and had 32. Considering I managed a four putt from a foot twice trying to be a clever dick and lost a ball on 18, there was some good stuff for the other 15 and not a shank in sight (although twitchy still on pitches). Definitely a glass overflowing onto the table sort of day
Sorry, what?? How is that possible? Four-putt from one foot?? More info needed.

Went to tap in nonchalantly with flag in and missed. Tried to reach past from where I was standing and tap back to hole and in and missed. Had the hump and tapped it one handed at the flag and missed. made the next. To be honest I was mucking about a tad and not concentrating but no excuses

Wow. Mucking about is putting it lightly! :LOL: Congrats on the recent cut though. (y)

Cheers. In all honesty the one on the 3rd I was far too busy taking the mick out of a PP and on our 17th it slopes by the hole and again I was busy giving plenty to a PP destined to be the roll up "bitch" and be at the winners beck and call for getting everyone's drinks for them. Even more funny as he's off 3 and never had it before. Yesterday was about trying to play with more freedom (Saturday was about anywhere on the face but the socket) and trust it and basically a glorified practice round.

That's tough luck that 48 points bet he was popular.

Not sure what you mean by teeing up rules what's that about?
Teeing up allowed on fairways and first cut. People hitting driver, then driver or 3 wood again because they can tee it up when normally they wouldn't even consider it. Preffered lies and mats really suits the older lads !

Gramacho today and early start at 8.51 with frost still around. Paired up with very nice retired French couple who had recently been to States and had meet Cameron Champ 😁. Played really well in thanks to Pascal telling me where to aim for and had 38 points to see off HID who had 34
Great to play off dry fairways but disappointed with the greens, ours at home are better just now when we are on them.
There were 3 3 balls in front of us and a big inter club comp behind so basically had millionaires golf and around in just under 4 hours with temp getting up to 17, could get to like this winter golf break malarkey 😂😂😂😂

Played yesterday with a mate, had a very enjoyable social knock, didn't even keep score. Flushed it again but my putting was woeful. Had absolutely no control whatsoever, must have had 10 or more 3 putts.

First time for several years as it's usually solid. Work to do before Sat :oops:
