Had an absolute nightmare. Played with some members so i could get my second handicap card in and went and shot a 108. (My first round was a 94)
Will try give an example of how i played, 6th is a 206yard par 3. Pulled the 5 iron out, caught it beautifully and hit into the bunker on the right of the green. 2nd shot didn't make it out of the trap, third was thinned into the bunker opposite me. Straight over the green with the 4th, fifth was an awful chip back which was put on the fringe, followed by 3 putts.
Card was full of 6's and 7's with 2 pars and an 8. Not a great day out !
Think i hit 6 sand traps on the first 9 holes. Irons seemed to be hit well all day just weren't getting on the greens, driver was awful, wedge play either brilliant or awful and putting was very average. Hoping saturdays run out is a bit better !
Played nine holes Monday and yesterday. Some great stuff punctuated with some very poor shots. It feels close and short game working well. Charity golf day in Chigwell tomorrow so going to just go out, have fun, enjoy it and let it flow.
Today epitomised everything that's great about golf at Coventry Golf Club.
Although it was our annual Senior Open & it's a competitive competition where players come from all over, what great spirit my fourball was played in.
I knew a couple of their names in my group but I had never played with any of them before, but what great company it was.
I thoroughly enjoyed myself, even though I found myself scrambling a little more than I would have liked, but I've booked a lesson for Friday morning to hopefully eradicate the problems I'm suddenly experiencing.
It should have been so much better, 33 points, but 3 x no returns (blobs) on the back 9 & 4 in total killed my card. Those NRâ€™s were down to poor club selection and poor course management, I got sucked into chasing my game a little at times, but hey ho, I know and recognise my mistakes but this fade/ slice Iâ€™ve adopted just lately Iâ€™m not keen on at all ðŸ˜¡
Yeah, just 1 shot array when the single putt opportunity didnâ€™t drop. Off the yellows is tough at our place, normal par 5â€™s turn into 445 & 430 par 4â€™s. Found too many bunkers being greedy when an iron and chip would have been best, rush of blood at times!
