5/10/12 Friday. Out and enjoying the sunshine today in the afternoon 9 hole ‘Chicken Run’ Hitting the ball and having fun even as the greens are recovering from the coring on Monday there was a reasonable result given the social and experimental influences on the game play. Also playing off a 9 handicap in this comp. and not my official 13 hcp. wit two wipes managed a credible 12 points.
A couple of lost balls and a struggle with distance affected the scoring. The ball was travelling much further that expected off the tee and with the short irons. It was the shorter irons flying over the green or through them that had a lot of effect on scoring. Warm weather does enhance the travelled distance of the ball. Off the tee that is not so much a problem, having wedges and other irons getting 20 metres further than expected when going for the green is a problem that needs to be adjusted to quickly.
Will be fun out on Sunday in the 18 hole comp. playing back into form in preparation for the home club open on the 11th of November.
Sundays round was not too bad fact is I am really enjoying playing golf and it is fun to be back to the basics. By that it is the simple pleasure of not going out with a mindset that has the game in the work attitude of have to perform to enjoy playing. Wiped a couple of holes and still finished with 33 points on the day. Better yet was the improved swing and comfort playing that topped off a good day on the track. Plus only a month to go and I am back to being an ordinary club member and off committee which is going to be enjoyable.
Thankyou for your time and attention. “Hit ‘em straight all”
