OK, revision: 1 cart girl will resign after everyone realises she's the only good one.

Being my first Champs and having only met a couple of you in person I expect nothing......

Except the normal:

First Tee: Despite how good I hit in on the range a soft, lazy pull hook off the first.

Somewhere over the weekend a great drive, 7 iron to 6 foot and then the worst putt you have ever seen....

Having a chance to play to handicap with about 6 to go, only to walk off with 29 points and wonder WTF!!

The shakes and a sombre mood on sunday from too many sherbets on Saturday night.

Looking forward to getting up there though.... I am easy pickings, ask Timah!, I will bring the piggy bank!!

Have a great time everyone!

Oh, and I might even hit the very occasional good shot interspersed with plenty of shite ones...

I was with the Qld BoM head and head forecaster on Thursday....we will be unlucky to get a really wet weekend. Weak La Nina forming - don't plan on dry golf courses in the new year is what I would be thinking but in 2 weekends time we will be playing on firm fairways and fast greens.

(Positive Thinking)

so i better take a wedge with about 20 degrees of bounce for the bunkers.

my bunker play sucks at the best of time with normal bunkers so hopefully wont go in many of them.

Wow who is this unfortunate soul? Explosion shot but looks like the ball ain't going anywhere

Great photo though

Is this the 5th? Bloody tricky/tight hole off the tee and testy second shot even from the centre of the fairway. One of my favorite holes!

Exactly. And you don't need to hit it too hard ... just digs in more in the sand.

Buried lie especially in soft sand like that, you only need to square up the clubface and "drop" the clubhead couple of inches behind the ball.

That's what I've read, anyway ... ;)

Tested my foot at the range this arvo. I'm no hope! Was hitting the ball better than I have in years.... So that'll implode for the champs. Best bit..... I think my follow through looks exactly like g69's :(

Grunt on the 5th in 2009. Thankfully this bunker no longer exists.

Poor Grunt.. made me think about a shot I attempted at Pac Harbour a few champs back but my ball was plugged in the top so I had a stance out of the trap unlike hitting out of an uphill bed of quicksand!

For a few of the newbies, search youtube for ozgolf and some footage from the 1st at Palm Meadows from 2008. Some absolute wood choppers there so hope we can setup the same this year.

My prediction is that I won't be watching everyone tee off for almost 2 hours on the Saturday, I predict I'll be in the bar enjoying a burger and chips and possibly a beer to wash it down. Pretty safe prediction I'd say.

Daves
13th October 2011, 10:31 AM
Any predictions on punters not fronting up to the first tee (choppa style) or failing to finish a round due to "illness".

At least one of the newbies will go too hard early, classic and regularly repeated rookie mistake. Plus the usual suspects of course. How is rain man in heavy conditions these days?

Daves
13th October 2011, 10:39 AM
who is rain man ?

The Nudgenator was christened that after his walk off at the Wynnum Cup a couple of years ago. Though in hindsight it may been due to a dwindling supply of towels.;)

I spewed all the way from Fairways motel to the 1st tee at Bribie back in '06.
