Got in 27 holes over the weekend. Half day on Friday took me to a new course in the area. Good I must say but I didn’t do it justice. Not the longest in the world but great greens. Shot 91 but should have been around 85ish. Some bad approach shots and one wayward drive on the 8th and 16th killed me. My mate won the money by 2 shots.
32 (18,14) points off 15.5
9 holes yesterday of my home course. The door was put slightly ajar for me to go and boy did I bolt through it. Glorious day and the course was quiet since it was around 4pm. Wind into the face on the Index 18 par 5 to start with and didn’t make the green until 4 shots were used up, and I was striking the ball well. Took 7 and a scratch in the end. Was by myself and tried a couple of new things. New putting grip was one and it worked (apart from the first but it was still a good putt). Went par bogey par par bogey bogey par bogey for the rest of the 9, with great putts on the 4th, 8th and 9th where I was a millimetre from a par with a great 20ft+ putt. Drove well, irons good, distance not great but it is still winter. Happy with the game atm
20 pts off 15.5 over 9 holes
Congrats to Graham McDowell over in Korea on his win at the Ballantine’s Championship. -24 after 72 holes and won it on the 3rd playoff hole with JM Singh. Had my pic taken with the Ulsterman recently and he was a gent to talk to.
Tiger Woods won the Buick Open with a -10 total. 24 foot putt to win it on the 18th. In fairness to him, he’s “awesome”
