    great o be back
    First game back in over a month.Home course is like a bog after all the recent rain. 6 inch placing everywhere bar the bunkers.Started off pulling my drives on  first 4 holes ,luckily my mid irons were not to bad and I made some nice long putts which is a change.
    Finished with 9 pars and 9 bogeys which I was delighted with.Hope it  continues.

    away day
    Played an away day last sunday .Castleknock golf and country club ,county Dublin.Its a beautiful layed out course,with plenty of water and lots of well placed bunkers.it could not of started worse,my first tee shot straight in the pond. I luckily got in the hole for bogie.i bogied first four holes  followed by 4 par and birdie.
    The back 9 started double bogie .bogie followed by 3 pars .followed by 4 more bogies. finished with an 82 of white stakes.The best thing about this course is the par 3 s.they are all long irons and water comes in to play on them all.
    I cant wait to go back.

    good to be back
    I haven't posted a thread in quite a while.My back gave in about a month ago. I just bent down to tie my laces and I fell in a heep.
    Slowly the pain eased and I was rearing to get back on course.
    a little driving range practice followed by my first game back .it took about six holes before I trusted my back ,then I began to play quite nice .I shot 84 on par 71 easy enough course,but good to be able to play again.
    Last week managed to play two games .first one on a links course called Seapoint in co louth. played pretty well on first 12 hole,5 pars and 1 birdie, then I could not hit a ball for love nor money.
    On sunday played in club golfer of year competition.i played some good stuff again.shot a77 on par 71 sss69.13 pars and 2 three puts. my handicap has dropped back to 9.8. I have never been lower and would love to get down to single figures.
