    Imagine comparing Mick’s voice to a little background noise.

    Ok, point taken.

    But some people are a bit too precious when it comes extraneous noises. A mower two holes away, traffic on a nearby road.
    A good player can concentrate on the job at hand and switch off to minor distractions.

    Yeah…nah.

    I find that some of the “better” players crack the shits at the smallest of noises.

    Big shout out to the super-coach.

    Ha….that day at Royal Melbourne was funny. šŸ™‚

    Golf shop staff were invited to pay in a Members special event yesterday at Elanora. 14th hole Shotgun start from the Blue Tees, for me, which I easily wiped. 2 points followed by a one pointer on the next two holes left me 3pts after 3 holes and was in trouble. Finally clicked into gear with a par and bogey to move on to the front nine where I finally found some form. Managed 20pts there with 2 very ordinary 1 point holes on 4 & 5, holes that I normally par in my tes…practice games. Any way managed to recover the lost points needed to get back to even 2’s on the back nine to finish on 38pts. Following on from my 37pts from the Blue Tees last month I’m not too unhappy…losing 1.2 shots from the 2 rounds, now down to 14.7…a place I haven’t been in just over 2 years. I think I’ve worked out what I have been doing wrong, next months Magenta game will be a real test.

    Not playing enough COMP golf?

    Hope I havenā€™t peaked too early.

    Another round today at Elanora off the blue tees and 38pts. Iā€™ve gotta stop doing this or my handicap will drop too much and Iā€™ll never win anything šŸ˜

    Pfffftttt.

    Disaster…dropped to 14.7…arghhhhhh!

    Haven’t been down this far since Long Reef September 2018.

    Well…..you need to put some more COMP cards in.

    Played an aggregate 2 ball stableford at Finders GC on Monday. Low course rating had me off 8 and my partner off +1. We both had 14 on the front and 19 on the back for 33 each and 66 total. Ran 3rd as the winners had 69. Won 3rd on a countback…..wonders never cease.
