    Any club champs or open I donít think itís a good idea

    Cabramatta is too hard for me but with my course closed today for renovations and Liverpool used for Aus Open qualifying I gave it a try for the first time in ages. Tripled the first with my new purchase (an old TM r7 3 wood) being swung for the 1st time the culprit. Actually it was a crap swing after no warm up.
    I actually played really well after that except for 2 doubles. I had an eagle and 2 birdies for a 7 over=39 points. There were 3 in my group. The other 2 were brothers aged 8 and 9. The 9yo was same handicap as me . On the plus side, I felt like a bomber

    Saturday - Gungahlin Lakes - 13/20 for 33, and a NTP on the 3rd at 12 metres.
    Sunday - RMC Open - hit the ball really well off the tee, but my irons were woeful. Nett 84/77 doesn't sound too bad - except its a par 68.

    Just got home on Friday night from a very short trip to St Andrews. Managed to play a bit of golf which was great, will try and recall as best as I can but I played the half set for the entire week.

    Friday- Old Course- 79 (42/37) Its always a highlight playing this place, this time of year its not as busy as summer so it was quite easy getting on as a single. Played with a couple and another single and they were great fun. I played fairly well in cold and windy conditions, blowing 35-40 km/h straight downwind on the way out and straight into on the way back. Highlight was the par on 17 but coming home in 37 in that wind was probably the best I've ever played over there.

    Saturday- Jubliee Course- 79 (38/41) Was off as a single in much more benign conditions and was met on the first tee by a young US student from the local uni. We played what I thought was a relaxed pace following a few other 2-balls but finished in around 3 hrs. I like the Jubilee, it is more 'dunesy' than the other courses and probably tougher in the wind.

    Sunday- I didnt play golf due to Remembrance day celebrations but I did get an invite into the R&A for a few pints. Had a bit of a tour and it was a surreal feeling sitting there in the big room looking out over the Old Course. Definitely a highlight of the trip for me. Finished up with a burger and a few more pints in the St Andrews Club which sits alongside the 18th green.

    Monday Morning- New Course- 74 (37/37) Played with a Professor of Humanitarian Engineering and a Japanese guy who works in finance in London. The New is probably my favourite course to play in town, between it and the Eden I've had my best scores there. Didnt pull the driver out at all and just bunted my way around. No birdies, no doubles and a fairly uneventful round. I think by this time I'd gotten used to the greens and the win and it kind of came together in this round.

    Monday Arvo- Jubilee Course- Carried on with my new mate the Professor, didnt carry a scorecard for this but it was a great round of golf. As it gets dark quite early (about 3:30) we raced the daylight and got in before it got too dark.

    Tuesday- Balgove- After breakfast I went down to see if I could get a game on the Eden or the Strathtyrum but they were both full. Seeing as we were driving down to Blackpool that afternoon I jumped on the Balgove, a 9 hole short course normally for the elderly and the beginners. I managed to do 4 loops around it before my mate picked me up. So much fun after a few days on the bigger courses and after playing it 2-3 times I was trying different shots and ways to play to the holes. Only cost 8 pounds and I highly recommend it if you've got some time to kill in town. I think 18 holes took me less than 90 minutes.

    Wednesday- Fleetwood Golf Club- 77 (37/40) What a quirky little course, right on the coast at Blackpool it was blowing a gale and freezing cold. Caught up with an old Army buddy from the UK the night before and we played together as a two-ball. Managed to make 3 birdies on the day offset with a couple of doubles. The wind made it really interesting, 9th is 520 odd yard par 5 into the wind and I needed 3w-3w-7i to get to the green whereas the 10th runs parallel the opposite direction and I hit 3w-3hy to the front edge. Heaps of fun and not overly tough, I suspect in the summer when its firm it would be much tougher. A couple of cool par 3's, 85y, 110y, 230y and the 18th is a cool, driveable par 4.


    Given the travel was almost 90 hours it was a long way to go to play golf but it was definitely worth it. The whole point of the trip was a charity dinner on the Saturday night to raise money for a charity that's very close to my heart, www.standrewslegacy.com

    Went to a clinic last Thursday, and was hoping to work on my alignment issue since I have been playing sort of decent previously, but just need to get my aim right...
    Came out of it with a changed swing (bad mistake)

    Played 9 hole comp on Friday; Struggled to hit the balls right but still managed to squeeze 16 points out of it with 1 blown hole.

    Saturday and Sunday playing the Kwinana Comp was bad/terrible.... Driving was good, but can't hit my driving irons at all; Putting was decent but my irons seems to keep getting me in trouble with the trees. Getting to the steep hills on the back 9 would just destroy me; hurting my back didnt help my game on the 2nd day either...

    pretty miserable weekend of golfs to be honest.

    Mid 90s Gross for both days

    Default WDYSTM - November 2018

    2nd round back after a 5 month lay off

    1st round of Club champs and after some persuasion from some lippy individuals I decided to go have a hit

    Went out with 42, birdied 8 and flubbed a chip on 9 that cost me a double

    Came home in 40, with a birdie on 15, lipped out a birdie putt on 17 and what I thought was a round destroyer drive on 18 that made me re load. managed to find the ball and finish with a 5

    42/40 for 82/70 and sitting 3 shots off the lead in B grade going into round 2 this week

    Well done M3J!
    Fighting the good fight!


    Golf is, in part, a game; but only in part. It is also in part a religion, a fever, a vice, a mirage, a frenzy, a fear, an abscess, a joy, a thrill, a pest, a disease, an uplift, a brooding, a melancholy, a dream of yesterday and a hope for tomorrow. - New York Tribune, 1916.

    A moderately disappointing 35 points for me today. I'm a bit down on the score because I played really well in patches, and thought I deserved better. But everybody says that after their round.

    The greens will be getting a badly needed renovation next week, so that will be my last round for a while.
    nothing to see here

    Haven't check in here for a while as the form has been terrible and I didn't feel like talking about it. I somewhat turned a corner in the last few rounds, showing some scoring potential again. Today was 37pts even with a wipe on Index 18 and 3 x 1s. 3 x Kakaaa's helped remedy that.

    PAR comp today with Olinda GC.Small field of 13 battled the rain and wind,with only one + score recorded for the day,by me.
    Opened with a couple of halves and wasn't really feeling it,then a NTP on 21 which led to three wins on the trot and I suddenly felt good.Struck the ball well all day,my short game has come along nicely since putting more practice time into that that my long irons,and I am putting with a lot of confidence with a new set up and better distance control.

    Finished +2 for the day(+2,0)
