My home course is Par 69 SSS 70 and my best score off Competition Tees (& in a comp) is 70 - I was playing off 6hcp having been cut from 7hcp the previous week! - So in two weeks I came down from 7hcp to 5hcp (retirement rocks!)
Wish I could play like that all the time though in the comp my nett 64 was beaten into 2nd by a nett 61 (feck!)
I recently shot 67 gross including a hole in one but that was off girlie yellow tees & not in a comp!
Hoping to recover from a recurring back injury & get back to full fitness but looks like that wont happen until some sort of divine intevention or, more likely, surgery
That really is a fantastic score Paul. I would be absolutely gutted if I shot -1 gross and didn't win the competition. You were Robbed mate
Thanks for the kind words, it was gutting but it happens on regular basis at our club (iirc the 61 was a gross 79 by someone off 18?) - Golf has a funny way of levelling things out & last year I won one of our main cups with 37pts! - That score would normally not get in top 10 but it was a tough day with strong wind & I shot 21pts on back nine to win on countback ...
Sweet revenge Paul. Also great that it was a Board Competition. I hate winning Monthly Medals Someone once told me that you always have the best chance of winning on a really tough day weatherwise, as 75% of the field will either not fancy it, can't play in wind or rain, lose enthusiasm half way round or NR
