  1. Shot a 96, net 76 in Day one of the Captains prize last Saturday. Tough pins, meant I sat in 18th place over the week, to the day 2 this Saturday. 
     

    I practiced 3 days mid week, clubs cleaned, good breakfast. 
     

    Stood on the 1st, on day 2. Tee shot pushed OB with help of a big wind. 
    Finished up with a 106 for the day, fast greens, back stick tee’s and tough pins
     

    Feeling like after almost 20 years of golf, plenty of practice this week prior to the big round and have learned nothing, put a lot of heart in for the final day to try and place in the prizes. Hopes dashed after the first Drive! 
     

    Where to go from here.... think I’ll sell the clubs 

  2. Take my games seriously.

    Break 85 - 86 best score to date

    Accurate gapping session on wedges

    Track scores and stats after each qualifying 18 holes

    Have fun!

    Think each shot, Lie, Winds elevation etc. not just roll up and swing

    Don't quit after a bad hole or force a good score to recuperate.

    Hopefully drop the handicap below 18 by October close of season

     

  3. A hard to swallow 99 on a new course, Links with fast greens.

    Par'ed 4 of the last 6 holes to come in with 18 point back 9 (+3 for the 6 holes)

    Taking the best back 9 prize at least.

    Down to 19hcp from 20 last year, hoping to go below 18 this year

  4. Broke 90 only last month, and carded an 87 yesterday in the Club Lady captains prize to men. 

    Bogey golf mostly with two nice birdies. 

    Played in no different manner than normal, the shots just worked, bounces in my favour and putts dropped. I've Never had so many single putts ! On fire. Left the driver in the bag mostly which kept me safe

     

    Roll on breaking 80 now 

  5. Shot 88 on my home course Sunday, par 72. 41 points and cut 1.2 shots.  :) 

    First time breaking 90 in 5 years, 

    Noted that keeping it safe and on the short stuff as much as possible works, 3 wood can help off the tee 

    if in trouble, bail to the fairway and avoiding the hero shots. a bad hole can be saved with a good short game, up and downs. 

  6. 88 today on a course i played for the first time, birdies on 2 x par 4s which is uncharachteristic by my standards! 44 on both nines.

    Lessons learnt.

    - Dont always rip the driver off the tee, hit an iron to leave a full shot to the green,

    - FIR and GIR are essential to make comfortable pars, let alone birdies

    - Keep it in play
