Quest to break 80 - Easter Cup

Rate this Entry
Unfortunately I am not playing in the Toowoomba or Headland easter comps this year, due to a birthday and the Reds Waratahs game. Redland Bay has an Easter Cup, where they have the best 2 of 3 stab rounds on Sat/Sun/Mon. I am hoping to play 2 rounds at least. Should be good.

Taking the stuff I did at the range on Tuesday with the OG crew, I headed up the course this afternoon for a couple of holes. I pulled the i-Rod shaft out and stuck it into an i-Mix connecter and tried it out in the FT-iZ. Seemed a bit short, but it was humid as hell and the course very wet. I like the Voodoo too, so might have to have a shoot off. Drive carry around the 205 mark (GPS measure) and a bounce of a couple. Pretty straight as long as I swing good. Might try it in the FT-iQ Tour and see how it goes. Also trying to get a FT-5 head, but they seem to be fairly rare (one on the bay for $150 with a YS 6+ reg, seems a bit much).

The adjustment to close my shoulders up a bit (return them to square) has meant a lot more iron shots on line. Chipping is a bit hotter and straighter too. Beginning to feel quite happy with the changes as they come. Did hit a nice 8 iron to the heart of 11, and it checked up.

Will hopefully get out for a hit tomorrow, even if it is a couple of holes in the evening or the 9 hole chook run. Would have liked to get down to the Glades, but can't afford it and next weekend.

    Headed up to Reddy Bay with Daves this arvo and we played a relatively quick 18 (3.5 hours). Sorted out what driver combo I like at the moment (9.5 FT-iQ with i-Rod stiffy). Looking forward to tomorrow.

    Saturday round - 33 pts stab, bit uggarly in patches, nothing too exciting. Lost the stats cos the new app on the phone doesn't keep em.

    Today - 40 Points scrambled well.

    1 -Bogey - Drive RHS, 7 W short right, Wedge on that rolled through (greens were a fair bit faster thanks to the breeze drying them out). Putter on to 1'.
    2 - Bogey - Hooked drive in the trees. Punch out. Hybrid pushed to RHS. Wedge over bunker to 3'. Putt.
    3 - Bogey - Drive to Fwy. Misshit 7 wood to about 135. Push to Right of green. Wedge on. 2 Putt.
    4 - Par - Hooked hybrid into trees. Punch 8 iron on to about 15', directly below hole. Putt straight in.
    5 - Double - Drive to Fwy. Iron just short. Putter on too hard as the grass off the green took nothing off the ball. 1st putt too short, miss 2nd. Bugga.
    6 - Bogey - Pot left, Out to 10', 2 putt.
    7 - Par - Drive Rght side. Punch Iron over creek to 60m. Wedge to 4'. Putt.
    8 - Bogey - Drive Left in the trees. Punch out to fairway. Wedge to 10'. 2 Putt.
    9 - Double - Best drive in ages. Snap hook 7 W dead against tree. Punch out. Hybrid up fairway. Wedge on. 2 Putt.
    10 - Bogey - Snap hook off tee. Punch out of trees. 7W just over bunker left. Wedge to 3'. Putt.
    11 - Par - Drive LHS (lots left today!) into trees, near the 150 marker. Hybris on to front. 2 Putt par (just missed the birdie slider).
    12 - Par - Hook onto 11. Punch 5iron on. 2 Putt.
    13 - Double - Hook. Wedge on. 2 Putt.
    14 - Bogey - Drive into 2nd bunker RHS. Out. Iron to 80 out. Wedge on. 2 Putt.
    15 - Bogey - Drive into wind too short for corner. Punch up. Wedge to front. 2 putt.
    16 - Birdie - Punch 5Iron into wind and on. 10' Putt rolls in.
    17 - bogey - Hooked drive. 7W to just short of bunker. Wedge on 2 putt.
    18 - Bogey - Driver LHS in trees. Mishit hybrid all the way over onto 2nd fairway - good soldier golf. 7 Wood just short of bunker. Wedge just over. Putter on, putt.

    87 off the stick. 30 putts. Had issues going left all day. The hip was playing up a bit. Scrambled quite nicely. With the course a bit dryer I was a lot more confident. Punching irons worked really well (going 2 or 3 irons up and 9-3 swing). One of those days where the mishits worked, expect for once on 9. Next round might be Friday ion the Black Marker depending on if I can get the van fixed without missing work. Otherwise Masters down the Tweed on Sunday. Should be a good one.
