    Default WDYSTM - April 2021

    Oh, I get to start this thread!

    PPPPPPbBP-PBPBBPPBP - 75/35 points

    Bit of a let down, got on the bogey train on the back 9 and struggled to get off. Hit driver well, wedges still have room to improve.

    Thanks. Handicap went up 0.5 though because a played to 0 flag came off . Hopefully I can play ok at Blackwood on Monday, not a course I've scored well at previously.

    02/04/2021, Virginia GC (Heritage 19-27), Social.

    Stats: 3/7 fairways, 2/9 greens, 15 putts.
    Score: BBBXbPPBP; 40 (+5). Played to 7.2. SCH 7.9 (+0.0)

    This was garbage compared to Wednesday on a garbage course. I decided to wear a long sleeved shirt that I've hardly worn to test it out. Big fail! It felt quite restrictive around the shoulders and in the arms, which threw me off, then screwed with me mentally. The swing was off, and the greens were crap, so I couldn't get those shots back on the green. I'll throw this one in the bin.

    My highlight was hitting a big 6 iron hook around a tree blocking my approach. I never have a problem hitting fades or slices, but I've never been able to draw or hook on command. Practicing some Adam-Way at Gailes the other day seems to have paid off.

    Next round: Sunday comp and Nudgee, potentially in the rain.

    To put it bluntly I’ve played like sh!t since at least Nov.

    Thanks to Bryden McPherson’s win on Sunday i went back and reviewed the Brad Hughes drills I had been doing last year. A couple of hours and a couple of Brookvales hitting balls last night was time well spent.

    Best game in about 12 months.

    72(42pts) - 3 birdies and 3 bogies.

    04/04/2021, Nudgee (Gateway Temp 2), Stableford.

    Stats: 2/10 fairways, 8/18 greens, 30 putts.
    Score: PPPXPPPBP PBBBPXBBb; 38:41:79 (+5:+6:+11).
    Played to 9.2. Golflink 9.3 (-0.2). SCH 8.2 (+0.3)


    After talking up my 200 steel as a fairway finder, it went terribly, as did the driver. I lost plenty of shots because of those clubs yesterday, including a quadruple bogey on the 4th after a tidy start.

    Eight greens is a nice number to hit, but I realised afterwards that I hit all eight par 3 greens (-1 for par 3s), and not a single other green for the round. That's not great, but missing fairways doesn't help with that, and I had a few that landed on greens then ran off the back.

    Next round: Looking for somewhere next Sunday before midday. Maybe the Championship course at Virginia.

    18 holes at Marion GC today 46/43 for 89 (+20)

    Played better than the score would suggest, just a couple of 7s among bogeys, pars and 1 birdie on the 4th hole. Turns out missing the green on the 9th hole means your ball runs off 70m left down a hill... Quite harsh indeed. I enjoyed the course though and the views from the 2nd tee are probably the best in Metro Adelaide. The course is also quite good value - $26 for 18 holes.

    The 9th at Marion is a tough hole. I won it in pennants with a double bogey.

    I shot 85 at Blackwood today in the vardon - hit the ball well, putted ok, just got into some horrible positions and couldn't score. Bunker trouble too - got plugged in the face of two different bunkers! And smoked a 6 iron into the penalty area behind the 14th green - a 190m par 3! (Although slightly downhill)

    Speaking of tricky holes the 14th at Blackwood looks harmless but you tend to walk off with bogey or worse often.

    Utter dogshit. Since breaking par a few months ago I have been struggling to make 30pts. I need to change something up but not sure what.

    Default WDYSTM - April 2021

    Drove the absolute balls off it today. Fought hard with a couple but another good day out.

    The Easter long weekend had me lose 1.2 shots of the cap. Decent.

    Well done, Bushy.
    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.

    Hook into lake. Drop, nail three wood from rough and catch the tops of the trees on the inside of the corner for three. End up dead.
    Punch out, hit another tree further up. Have 180 carry for 5th. Hit it 179m into piss. Finally get over after 7 just short of the green needing to get to the top tier.

    Chip right on line for the flag, hit a sprinkler head, bounce 90degrees right and roll all the way down the hill, 5m behind where I was.

    Miss a 3 footer for a moose.

    Good times
