    Default WDYSTM - October 2021

    28 points from 93 gross today at Oxley, playing off 15. My irons are improving each time I play, problem is the errant tee shots not allowing me looks at the green in regulation often enough. I'm not having anywhere near as much trouble landing on greens from inside about 150-160 metres now which is good, also punching out through small gaps has become easier too. Little bit frustrating but I'm enjoying seeing actual improvement in areas that were pretty rubbish before (still have a number of lessons left however, only had one so far).

    Back to do it all again tomorrow, hopefully keep it in play more.

    82/33pts around a very windy Royal Adelaide today. Fairly happy with that, although probably should've been in the 70s if a couple more putts dropped.

    BXPBPbPBP-BPXPBBPPB

    Highlight was dropping a long birdie putt from up the back on 6. Nearly followed it up with a birdie on 7, but lipped out a tricky breaking putt from about 8 feet. Wind really picked up on the back 9 but I held it together reasonably well. Didn't drive the ball well, but the 14* mini driver was reliable after a last minute decision to put it in the bag (anticipating the wind).

    The rough was pretty brutal. I was hitting my 2nd shot from the rough on the 1st and 2nd, both times the long, thick grass grabbed my club so strongly the ball went a good 30 degrees left.

    I played in the late afternoon wind was brutal by the time I got to #15. Greens were a bit slower today, understandable considering the wind

    Played in the Mt Coolum Open on Sunday. What a great little course, first time I have played it. Amazing views and wildlife everywhere.

    Shot 86/72, not bad for my first hit in a couple of months. Three, 3 putts from within a meter ultimately screwed what could have been a great round.
    First time I have had two birdies in a comp round as well which was nice.

    26 points at Oxley yesterday, same old situation, too many tee shots into trouble 🤣 I at least scored better than I had the last year or so when I didn't do that, as my approach shots are improving and I'm getting more consistent with them each round. For the 10 holes where I kept it in play off the tee or could hit a proper shot from the trees I was +5, which could have been better if some more putts were holed. Prior to that first lesson approaches were probably the most inconsistent part of my game so it's been good to see improvement there now after initially going a bit backwards getting used to the swing changes. Looking forward to continuing the lessons and seeing improvement in all areas over the next while.

    39. 4 consecutive 3 putts followed by a wipe didn’t help.

    45 points gone begging...


    Another reasonable round for me today, driver still a bit iffy (missing left today instead of right, so maybe that's progress), but putted pretty well, other than a really cruel lip-out on 16 that lead to a 3 putt. Room to improve, but finally heading in the right direction.

    I had two rounds in one today at Oxley, social club game this week, and a match play semi final. The first 6 holes I wasn't going too badly, ball striking wasn't fantastic but was reasonable, even managed a birdie after sticking one to about a metre on a par 3. I think I was 3 up at that point. After that the wheels completely fell off and coupled with everything that could go wrong going wrong it just turned into a total dumpster fire and also lost the match. I knew what I was trying to do but for whatever reason just couldn't get it happening. Ended up with 101/81 in the end. Oh well, maybe after a couple of practice sessions before next Saturday I'll go a bit better then.

    My best round in about 6 months. Long story short, was fitted for new irons and I suspected from the about the 2nd game the fit was wrong (shaft to stiff and needing a step swing to load it) decided had to change something. Pro gave me a demo set or sim 2 to try for a round.

    81gross for 35 points

    Got my normal distance back and hit a lot more GIR if not for in be stupid shot would have was 37/38 points for a 79

    I may have over indulged in a particularly spicy jerky but that’s a story for another time.

    Catch-up for Saturday. 36 points in another Jekyll and Hyde round. Happy with how I finished off the round but some consistency would be nice.
    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.

    Wasted a great start today with a triple & two doubles on the back 9 - all due to poor tee shots (with some poor decision making after the bad tee shot causing the triple). Chipping & putting remains pretty solid. Approach game is a little average - missed a couple of greens with a wedge in hand today, which is bad (for me). For perspective, the 3 birdies were on two par 5s (3rd shot being a pitch/chip) and a chip-in after missing the green on a par 4. Need to put some work in there.

    I had a hit on Sunday, October 3, but I didn't keep score. I thought if I played best ball from two balls for the first nine while on the back of social groups, it would boost my confidence. It was the opposite, when I double bogeyed a par 5 after being greenside for two, and failing to get five consecutive chips onto the putting surface. I strongly considered not going ahead with the next weekend's comp, but I had planned some parkrun tourism beforehand, so I stuck with my plan.

    09/10/2021, Laidley GC, Moreton District Golf Association Championships, Stroke.

    SG Handicap: Driving - 12, Approach - 9, Short - 5, Putting - +4.
    Score: PPPBBPPPB XXPbBBBPP; 39:41:80 (+3:+6:+9).
    Played to 10.1. Golflink: 8.3 (-0.1). SCH: 8.6 (-0.2).

    Parkrun before golf isn't a great idea, but I was making the most of being in the area. I didn't go too hard, and did the 5k in about 27min.

    Very solid start and made the most of the course being fairly open, allowing the driver to be sprayed a bit, which I did. A double-double start to the back nine ruined the chances of a really good score, but I toiled away to have a half decent round, despite several dud shots. Putting was the best it has been for ages, except when I putted from off the edge of the green into someone else's ball, well short of the hole; still made the next putt though.

    5th best B grade gross score, two shots behind the best.

    Next round: Back to Wolly Park on Sunday, I assume.
