    I decided it was too risky. It's still not fairway, so there was a risk of ending up in some long grass, like some others did. That said, the grass on the left that I found was significantly worse.

    I have learned that I should not be lazy when warming up and still go with some semblance of a pre-shot routine. Being lazy leads to shanks which leads to bad juju on the course.

    and we thought it was going in for eagle ... I made a superb 2 putt 5 after catching the left trap and that bunker shot was only 2 ft from being great

    .

    This!!

    Courty and I Debated it, and I just bombed it over the bunkers, trusting what I had read. I had 45 metres left. Pin high. Pulled my pitch but easy 4/2 after burning the edge.

    Was a great strategy but I think you are playing around with the lie you get down there.
    Why exactly do I need to answer to you?

    I learnt that If you block up Monsta's mouth and nose he can still snore thru his bum.

    There were 6 of these uncut spots in total.
    The rest of the area was good.

    I overestimated the width. It is less than 100m from the edge of the 7th fairway. Monsta was in perfect position.

    I learnt that no matter how much time, effort and preparation I put into things, I always ****ing forget to put out the NTP's and LD markers to the appropriate people!

    And also that over the wooden block on 7 at the Dunes with a 5 yard cut is STILL not the place to hit it.

    I also learned that double bogies on the first or second holes at OZgolf Champs on the weekend are becoming ridiculously commonplace for me.

    I realised how many Oz Golfers suffer from DVT due to the amount of compression bandages being worn on arms.

    I learnt that I really don't wanna play my home track anymore after this line-up.

    I learnt the following:

    Playing with Bruce is better than reading the course guide
    Solarman's bunker weakness is only rivalled by GK's
    Haysey must be deaf
    I still dry heave every time I think of Shadsey without a shirt on................
    Marto bats off in the shower way to often
    The WAnkers arent as weird as I thought (excpet maybe for Shadesy taking his shir)
    Lefty can throw clubs further that you think
    LarryLong can hit bombs (and dress well for under $10)
    OZgolf trips are the best holidays to have
    Beating the Union at Royal Melborne was as sweet as I dreamt it would be.......

    And Lefty is an absolute Champion for organising the best OZgolf tournament two years in a row....
