thank you sir! May I enquire as to your own rounds this week, was there anything particularly good going on this week?
The good thing about my 107 score was that I had a quite balanced round. I only had two blown up holes across 18. Also putting was good.
The bad shot types which cost me some strokes was regular chip shots and short range lob shots. I chunked, it seemed, almost half of my chip shots and lob shots. It wasn't a pretty sight I can assure you that. Ideally you would always want to get closer to the pin in those kind of shots...
Also the gross score 107 was masked a little bit by the fact that I'm playing only stableford format thusfar. It's a hole-by-hole based scoring format for golf, so it doesn't punish you so much with overall bigger score. The reason behind the forgiveness is because stableford awards good results like bogies and pars with quite many points, and big stroke counts don't get any worse than a simple zero point.
I made a pretty amazing par yesterday in my opinion. I hit about let's say 200m 3-iron off the tee. Second shot was sadly worse with a mid-iron from rough, the shot makes a pull fade type of flight and rolls into the green bunker.
Third shot with a 56deg wedge goes almost in the hole! Tap in par putt! I had sand in my mouth and eyes. Even inside my pockets too! That bunker sand just flies everywhere sometimes.
