    Only 10 strokes to go Weeti. You have plenty of time.

    It’s not quite that far

    Had an 8 over 3 games back and a 9 over yesterday so par is 8 shots away

    I hope I get there sometime – feels like it has taken a very long time indeed

    Is there a driver backup plan? you might not need a driver on every PAR 4 and 5.

    Plenty of hybrids off the tee and irons at times as well

    I don’t play the mini driver so much off the tee as if the 3h 210m or so isn’t the right layup I may as well.hit driver

    what does your Arcoss stats tell you between driver and hybrid?

    Mini Driver ? What loft are you using in mini- Driver and Driver? I was thinking maybe increased loft will help control the side spin issue.

    That’s two sensible questions in a row. OK you alien body snatching piece of shit…. What have you done with the real INK???

    My Arcoss has been on mute for quite a while now
    The GPS wasn’t registering properly and it was useless
    And one of the sensors has died

    Dunno whether I will try and resurrect them at some point or not

    My GPS readings though indicate that 3 hybrid is a reliable 200 to 210 from the fairway and a bit more of the tee

    Driver lately has been about 230 to 240m generally

    12 degrees SLDR Mini Driver

    It’s a bit of a beast

    At some point I’m going to have to test it off the tee more – could be that it’s almost as long as my driver and as you say the extra loft may make it a more reliable fairway finder

    Was it that mini driver that you flushed on 10 at Royal Pines from 110 out?

    It was indeed

    Flew like a bird

    I think you are exaggerating a little how far out I was – was more like 160
    I just channelled Goldy in my club selection, that’s all

    I do remember that I was standing just behind a marker peg that suggested you had 6 clubs too much at the time haha

    Played Pacific with 11 other intrepid Queenslanders today in fine conditions. Course was a bit rough – preferred lie which I used quite a bit although most lies weren’t terrible just a bit scratchy. Greens were sandy and still recovering from coring – but it’s that time of year and I think they took advantage of when they were members only for covid to get it done so no complaints.

    Was a strange day because I didn’t play terribly well but also not terribly badly either and with some good putting could have had a very good score. But positively I had nothing worse than a bogey all day (no birdies though), and finished with the same ball I started with.

    6 pars 12 bogies off 11 for a
    43 16 back
    41 19 front
    84 35 result

    9/14 fairways – better than it felt but only 1 dropped shot from a topped 3h on 10 our first hole. Couple of other less than stellar tee shots but overall they were pretty decent.

    7 GIR + 3 texas – again better than it felt and many very long putts were left for me to mess up. Dropped 1 shot from a pushed 6 iron on 1 after a cracking 260m 3h off the tee (big sloped help on that shot). Wasn’t hitting my distances very well and got away with a couple of thin wedge shots into greens. Overall not terrible but so much margin for improvement still.

    2/11 up and downs – not great but:

      {content}

    0/4 bunker shots but the shots were solid, apart from 1 that came out much softer than I expected but it did come out
    0/1 LW pitch over a bunker that I struck very well to about 8ft so happy with that
    0/1 PW chip but after a big pushed 6i left me a long way from the flag and it was a good aggressive chip, just a touch too aggressive
    2/4 Texas – which along with 36 putts shows much of the problem today was the flat stick

      {content}

    36 putts + 4 texas – not good and didn’t drop a long putt at all, although saved a few pars after weak first long putts

    Will flag and may squeeze me under 10 – was in Pacific’s comp so won’t know until a lot later

    Thanks Della – I’m replacing a flag this Sunday and then have a little space
    8 would be amazing – not sure I’m playing that consistently but hope it comes together

    We have ladies in our group – Kylie plays both the Brisbane Fairways and most of the between games and she and Sharon are coming to some of the Sunshine Coast Nats replacement next month

    We have 5 ladies members at Brisbane Fairways
