    Reporting for duty.



    6th hole. First ever shank in competitive golf. Should've made the bogey putt, but deserved a double. Was a turning point for my round though, some of the best iron striking of my life from the 7th hole on.

    Got out of the bunker. I’m calling that a win.

    Had a classic today on 16 at Thaxted. Hit a great drive and then pulled a 7 iron left of the green. I was left with a straight forward chip. I proceeded to shank the chip shot straight into the bunker. I wasn't even mad, just had to laugh at that point.

    Riverlakes 18th on Monday. Great Driver around the corner, middle of the fairway past the 135M mark. Well past everyone else. So I waited for the others to play. Pull 7 iron for the shot into the wind to a tucked pin. Hit the purest hosel ever, 45 degrees left, grassy ball mark in the middle of the hosel to confirm it. Just missed the guy mowing his back lawn and clanged into his Colourbond side fence. The protective netting is set up for much worse first shots, it seems!And they don't seem to have considered lefties! He heard it, but he seem confused as where it had come from!

    Add 3 to my tally, all in the 1st round of the club champs. Ridiculous.

    Forgot to post for last weekend, just had the ever so slightest little tickle on the hosel. Like it caught 1mm of hos, enough to go about 10° offline at most, but it was DEFINITELY there.

    Too numerous to bother posting about them lately. It's less trouble to just report when I didn't have one, which was yesterday (if you don't count warming up in the nets).

    Three in a row with a lob wedge after a nice drive. None the rest of the round, or for a few rounds before this either
