Friday morning, I shot 40 on the harder front side at Killian. It was 180 degrees opposed to how I hit the ball earlier in the week. I made 7 pars and 2 double bogeys. In both cases, I missed the bogey putt from around 3 feet. Instead of coming home happy about shooting 38, I came home feeling negative and thinking about those 2 putts I'd missed.

I guess the most I could learn from that morning is, how much ibuprofen it takes to let me loosen up.
I've had a good day if I didn't fall out of the cart...

After 7 rounds it was Winter Matchplay QF today. After shooting decent yesterday I was hoping for more of the same. Giving away 3 & 5 shots to our opponents and my partner getting 10 off me I was confident. 

well.... I shot a 76 give a few concessions that were 4-5ft away. What I didn't expect was to lose 2&1 with the winning putt from 25ft going in after bouncing off his playing partners poker chip ball marker which was 3inch off line and 8ft short of the hole. If it missed the marker it was going 5ft right and 5ft past. I would have had 2ft for par to stick the pressure on an uphill swinging right to left putt....
so much for humility after it went in by opponent, fist pumped it in, no apology of luck. We then play up 18 and one of them americans it out of bounds left, the other hits 3 shanks in a row and I birdie last. Gutted.

Two things happened today!

Firstly, I got my first outdoor range session in today and secondly I got the results from our level two referee training exam. I scored 90/100 in the exam coming second in the class of 16. I was actually slightly disappointed with the score but at least I passed (72 points required for that). I earned the title of "Club Referee" last year, now I'm a "Regional Referee". The next step would be to apply to become a "Union Referee Candidate" (Union referring to our national Golf Union). Actual Union Referees have a chance to go to St. Andrews for further training.

As for the range session, it was awesome! It was +3 Celsius but the sun was out and there was very little wind so I had a good three-hour session. :D You need to collect your own range balls though as the range is still mostly mud but at least it's free.

I had a half set of even-numbered MP-32s and the odd-numbered Ping i20s with me and I was hitting them both exceptionally well for the first range session of the season. Hitting off the mat I didn't notice much of a difference between the two sets except for the fact that the i20s tended to go slightly more to the left. It could be down to the head design or the shafts (CFS stiff vs S300).

After 2+ hours and 200+ balls I started to notice a slight difference between the two sets with the Pings being easier when getting tired. I doubt that difference is enough to hold on to them but I will give them a round or two on the course as the sole should help in wet conditions. Anyway I'll go back to the 4s once we're playing off actual grass rather than mud and sand. Until then it's the 32s or i20s.

The 22* 650 hybrid seemed to work quite well, I might need to hold on to it for a while (I sold the 19* version last year as it wasn't for me).  My swing wasn't quite there yet for the fairway woods even though I didn't have any trouble elevating them.

The 650 driver on the other hand. It was pure gold! The drives were fantastic, it was a pure joy to hit - straight and long. If I could lock in this driver swing for the rest of the season, I'd definitely take it. The funny thing was the sound it was making. Anyone who has tried it knows how it feels and sounds. Maybe it was the very cold range balls or my visits to the gym paying off, the sound off the face was huge and violent (no, it's not broken). Maybe not Nike SQ or Cleveland caliber but still distinctively different. I'm putting it down to my time at the gym! :D

The wedges were the opposite. As always, I really struggled with them for quite a while hitting mostly hosel rockets. I did get them working by the end of the session though after quite a bit of frustration and work. The touch shots with wedges really show my lack of coordination and athletic ability early on in the season.

 I can't wait for the season to start! Quite often I feel like asking for a refund on my annual fees after the first or second range session and finding another hobby but now I'm truly excited!

Went out with my local guys on Saturday and joined the sub 80 club for first time, shooting gross 78 on a CSS 69. My playing partner doesn't have the best eyesight so I was always walking to wherever he'd hit his ball. Kinda helped me switch off between shots and not think about how well I was playing! 42 out & 36 in, which included a horror 4 putt on the 6th. Goes to show where shots can still come off!

Bit of a frustrating round today in an inter-club match at Guildford - As a team we knew we were up against it as the opposition was filled with mid to high handicaps (av hcp 22) whereas our team had a couple of low men (like myself off 5hcp) & mainly mid handicaps (av hcp 11) - In my four, my partner was getting 9 shots & the opposition 13 & 14 shots - We were blown away on the front nine tbh after being subjected to 6 birdies / net birdies - We were 3 down at the turn & the 19 hcp hit the SI 2 10th with 2x 3 woods & scored another net birdie - Another 3 net birdies saw the match finish on the 15th (lost 4&3) despite my own gross score of +2 - Sounds like the rest of our team suffered in similar fashion & we only managed one win out of five matches - Oh well, there's always next year ...

Notts Alliance Order of Merit today at Radcliffe On Trent GC, so 90% handicap and just 6 shots today. I have never played this course to date when it hasn't been blowing a gale and raining..... today was no exception to that trend!

Started off banging my opening drive straight down the middle 260yd into the wind. My second shot was a nice mid trajectory 4i 180yd into the wind and into what i thought was the front left portion of the green near the flag. Nope, short sided in the bunker, 4 shots later the ball is in the hole and its a blob. Missed birdie putts on 2,3,4,7,9 and turned in 13pts due to some disastrous bobbles on the dance floor.

Came back with 17pts after finally getting a break on the greens and hitting the ball into the right parts of these tricky, fast but unusually bumpy for this course, greens. Got to say that the course is top notch, fairways are like taking a 400 yard driving range mat around with you, just sublime.

Think my 30pts will be about par today. looking forward to carrying the long game form forward to the Battle of Belton Park with banananananananaman

You might have to carry me round mate unless the back calms down :lol: 

Had 21 points yesterday in some squally conditions at St Enodoc with The Chef of this parish. Lovely course but bl00dy tough in the wind. And the back felt very ropey after. Possibly the 800 miles driven so far this week was a bad move; currently being rectified via many gins :D

Prestatyn tomorrow with the Jones boy hopefully I won't embarrass myself :)
