    Played Par with Olinda Golf Club at Beacy.
    I started well with 4 pars for +4, playing off 17 on Lakes/Hills front. But I couldn’t maintain that progress, having pulled that back to +2 at the halfway mark. Onto the Hills course and my putts persisted in lipping out with five losses in a row on the first 5 holes. Then I parred the 6th (index 18 so that was only a half) but I did win the NTP on that one. Finished that 9 with a -4 for an overall -2.
    So, not too bad. Most drives were straight up the middle with only a couple of poor drives. All the lipping out putts annoyed me.
    Out for pennant tomorrow – the team captain wants to get everyone qualified for the finals (need two games).
    Vets event at Yallourn on Monday.

    See you at Yallourn on Monday. South have put together a good strong group of players in an attempt to win back the coveted trophy.

    West vs South is not on until 1st March at Langy. The trophy has been sitting on my dining table for the last year.

    CB, I hope you’re not relying on Vic Veterans Golf Assoc for programming.
    They managed to err when transcribing our entries for their booklet and I see that at least one of yours is wrong as well.
    The Eastern Zone Challenge is at Yallourn but not on 12 Mar (not a Monday anyway) as listed, but booked for 12 April. I see that you have a Woorayl event list for 12 Apr, so you might want to change that if you want to maximise attendance.

    Vets at Yallourn today. Stab, shotgun, started on the 14th off a 19 handicap.
    Started with three 2-points, but wiped 17 & 18 with some errant shots. More errant shots on the front nine causing 1-pointers and only a few 3-points with a total 17 points for that half.
    Back to the back nine for our last 4 holes and a few more 3-pointers (including the index-19 511m 13th) for a 16 point sum.
    Total of 33 points was just small enough to miss out on a ball DTL.

    CB80 joined us as a recce for the upcoming Eastern Zone Challenge there in April.

    Our sponsor for the event was a retirement village / aged care facility so we had to let the chick from there give her spiel, then our AGM which had been postponed from last year.

    Lunch was good and the course was in very good condition although the greens were somewhat slow.

    Back to Warra tomorrow.

    Stroke and counting putts at Eastern yesterday (South course) Playing off 10 for the day but also playing scratch matchplay against a guy off 6. The course had been set up for their Clubbies last weekend so tough pins and quick greens.

    Front 9 – 47 OTS

    About 5 down in the match. Too many silly duffed chips 🙁

    Back 9 – 41 OTS
    Putts 31

    88 nett 78 won me a ball dtl as the scores weren’t great with the difficult conditions.

    Lost the matchplay 4 & 2

    Chipped in for birdie 3 on the last….so not terrible but the handicap bounced back out to 8.7. Funny but this game knocked out the 20th game which was also at Eastern 12 months ago. That day I had 39 points so any wonder my handicap dropped out again.

    Par at Warra today.
    Started slowly with 3 down after 3 but it didn’t get better. Three halves and 3 more losses meant -6 at the change.
    A little better on the back nine where I had 3 wins and only two more losses.
    So, I finished the day on -5 which equates to 31 stab points. Not a disastrous score but should have been better.

    Thanks OB
    enjoyed Yallourn course, my game was off today maybe due to early start with taxi pick up at 6.00am. ddint sleep in taxi on way to course.
    31 points – no outs on any hole which is second round in a row with out a wipe. process was good and stayed focussed and chipped well.
    At least I broke 90. = 3 pars 13 bogeys 2 DB
    1 highlight of day was a 5 on Par 5 13th.(index3) driver hit tree off tee and dropped straight down, hit 3w from a reasonable lie, then another 3w into wind to 140m mark, then a punched 4 iron to 2m from pin, rolled the putt nicely into cup.

    2 highlight Dancer having 39 points to finish 2nd in C grade so well done to him, it was a happy drive home.

    South have adjusted our fixture before hand to 12th April for Eastern zone challenge, and look forward to playing to a different game plan next time i play Yallourn.

    see you Monday 1st at Langy We are currently at 44 players, so we have a bit of ringing around to do to get our numbers up to give good challenge.

    Stab at Warra today.
    17 out, 14 back for a 31 point total.
    Four pars out, only two back in with a wipe as well.
    Most drives were fairly straight but a few were quite wide. A couple of 3-putts.
    Lovely weather. Xman’s rain still not here.
    Tomorrow off, then 4 days of golf.

    BB Stab at Warra today.
    Neither of us played well. Not enough pars. We both wiped one hole. The 36 point total put us around the middle of the field, so no cookies for us.
    Weather, course, etc were all excellent.

    Pennant at Warra tomorrow against Deep Creek. We’d better win because we’re up against them again in two weeks at their course.

    After a Month of mediocre golf where I could not get more than 29 or 30, Finally had a day where it felt good. Still couldn’t drive well, hit a few but inconsistent, Chipping and putting saved me and cost me. missed 6 chips and had to do it again.
    Ended with a score of 36, happy but could have been so much better.

    Pennant at Warra today. The team won 4 1/2 to 2 1/2.
    I didn’t play at all well, drives were weak, chips were short and putts preferred to slink past holes rather than drop. My opponent played better and I went 2 down on our 18th hole.

    Lang Lang tomorrow for West Gippsland vs South Gippsland. Hopefully I do a bit better than today.

    Vets at Lang Lang today. Single stab, but average scores determined which tean won.
    West Gipps beat South Gipps by one point, 28/27. I passed the trophy on to our captain so it won’t have to decorate my dining room for another year.

    How did I play? Only one wipe, 31 points.

    The usual mid-week stab at Warra tomorrow.

    Well done to the Wests at the new home of golf. South had 8 players not turn up so this didnt help us.

    My score was 26 points today, which didnt help team South.
    2Pars, 12 Bogeys, 4 DB.
    game is down at moment.
    90 OTS, follows on from my 89 at Keysborough on Thursday.
    Baby sitting duties over the weekend and will be same next weekend, but its lovely thing to do and playing with grand children is far more enjoyable playing bad golf.
    So I need to really focus and improve 10 to 12 shots within 2weeks if going to be competitive in club championships and in pennant.

    What caused the DB’s CB80?

    I hit 4 DB today too. ( just to make you feel better) Mine were caused by 3 putts and one muck up tee shot and poor second shot trying to make up for the tee shot. The greens at Heywood have more slope and I didn’t do well at short putts ( speed control) , So near, yet so far. How can a ball bend at 90 degrees over less than a metre?
