A bit late, but played yesterday at Centurion in the Rick Garg Memorial day. Golf was not great, though I was ticking along ok with 24 points after 13 holes, until I made the mistake of having a Peroni on the 14th. Think I scored two points on the last five holes. Had to be done to toast an old and not forgotten personal friend, and that of the forum. Was great to have Rick's brother Paul walking round with us, and we had a lot of laughs which Rick would have approved of.:thup:
Nice touch from the club to make the day a board competition. Just shows what Centurion thought of Rick. Great to catch up with Karen again, and to celebrate the England win in such great company.
I played a blinder yesterday! Entered the July medal, which coincidentally was the one competition I won last year. Triple bogeyed the first (tricky par 3) but recovered and went on to go round in 84, a new personal best for me, and less my 22 handicap gives me 62 net! Par is 68 at our place, but that could still be on for a winning score and retaining my July medal title! :rofl: At the very least it will be a huge cut I should think. I know the best anyone got on the Saturday was 63, but I don't know what the other Sunday players did yet.
I hit some much better drives today, although still a couple of awful ones - but I managed to recover from those ones really well. The bone dry fairways helped in that respect I think (i.e. just pumping it out of the rough, still got it to roll up quite close to the green). My short game was really good (for me), and with the new e6 softs I was trying out, I felt I was holding a lot more greens than my DX2s were in the last few weeks. Putting was good two, save for two shortish ones that I was gutted I missed (should have been 82 really!). Overall it was 5 pars, 11 bogeys, 1 double, 1 triple. So nice and tidy really. Delighted.
