    Played at Hills today
    Was as green as I’ve ever seen it – the growing conditions here is Queensland are as good as they can be
    So it was great to see it in such good condition – relatively of course
    We did have a good storm come through at 2am which dumped 25mm on the course so it was a bit damp – bunkers were out and it was preferred lie as usual so that wasn’t a problem
    Greens were a bit shaggy but have a good coverage of grass
    It was very enjoyable

    Had 40 for 19 points on the back then matched that with 40 for 19 points on the front off 10, which was very pleasing

    Replaced an 8.3 flag with a played to 8.1
    No change to handicap at 8.9

    Scoring amongst our group of 12 was excellent with the winner having 42, a couple of 40s, a 39, 3 38s – that’s good scoring
    Our group had 42 39 38 38 – I think that’s the highest scoring group I’ve ever played in

    Stroke round at Carbrook next Sunday which is the BF Matchplay qualifier so hopefully I play will again

    Good round Weetie – you’re on a roll. As for playing with your will(y)……

    “so hopefully I play will again”:)

    Ha! Oops!

    Thanks – it was nice to back up a good round especially when it was one of my best flags dropping!
    It often seems that after a really good round you have a shocker just so golf reminds you who is boss

    Brisbane Fairways at Carbrook off the whites – started off 10
    Handicap 8
    Stroke round

    Started bogey double and 1 point and thought this could be an ugly day
    Steadied apart from an OOB slice off 16 for a double and had a 5 over 41 on the back for 16 points
    1 birdie and 3 bogeys for a 2 over 38 on the front for 20 points

    So finished 8 over 79 and 36 points
    Two 8 over in a row is good and always nice to break 80 (even when it’s par 71)

    Handicap dropped 0.4 to 8.5

    Well done Weetbix! It shows you are improving when you can overcome some poor shots and still break 80.

    Weetie – on a roll mate – well done. You’re almost ready to take me on:)

    Mind, nothing much to beat. Played Redcliffe last Friday, and started 3,3,2,3,4, which would have been great, except that was my number of putts. Somehow salvaged 30 points (12&18) in a 30 knot south-easterly. Aren’t the last three holes a test in that wind.

    Going back today to give it another crack.

    Haha – damn you had my mind racing with this numbers! Not so good though as putting stats!
    Nathan would tell you to put your putter in a dark place for a few weeks with some stern words and use another one until your preferred putter got its act together!

    The last 3 holes into the wind is one of SEQs toughest finishing stretches – brutally difficult and can ruin a good round really fast!

    Hope everything works better today mate

    I wish I had an answer for the yips – they’re still alive in my chipping game, even though it’s improved a lot

    Having yips with driver and putter must be a joy!

    Driver and tee shot problems largely gone:)

    Redcliffe is in pretty good shape – greens should be perfect in a week or two. 17th fairway is a bit scratchy as the new turf hasn’t taken too well.

    Managed 34 points, and have the card to prove it, as I rushed off to pick up the bride and forgot to put the damn thing in. Not that it was worth anything.

    Played great, especially my driving, and irons too – but 7 three jabs and a four jab poured cold water on it:(

    Damn! That is some nasty yipping!

    Maybe try putting with your driver for a bit?

    Was great to catch up with Ink and Mads yesterday at Brookwater with Pig
    Highlight, apart from the company, was a drawn team matchplay
    My golf though was terrible and finished with 23 points off 11
    Could be interesting at Wynnum on Sunday
