i wish I could play.....

OK, so I played in a little society from work yesterday and....... I won! 35 points of 16hcp. Course was set up so that I didn't have to use my driver or 3 wood. 19 points on the front. From the tee I couldn't have hit it much better. Mainly irons with the odd 7 wood here and there. This 7 wood combo of Callaway and fex is just wonderful, from both the tee and fairway.
Srixon and DG SL were very good. Light enough to keep up a decent swing speed but also stiff enough keep the left (ish) out of play. Similar with the Miura (DG wedge flex) wedges.

An all round good day at the office 😎

Nice!  Always fun to win an event...even the silly ones.  That's a good score Ian...some might have accused you of being a sandbagger....if I draw you in the clubhouse Ryder cup were playing straight up...

I was accused of all sorts teeing off. A wanker being one of them  :o.......but I came to win not to make up the numbers. I looked awesome. Pimped out on the tee, where most others were in their rags. Intimidatory from the start......

I tend to show up slovenly looking and usually hung over but lately my game is doing the talking for me...trying this Faldo thing right now where I cock the wrists, set the shaft down the target line, turn/tilt back, side crunch/drop...whalahhh...

I'm a big boy now...hit some really nice 5 irons today...might have shot under par on the back if it weren't for these delicious gummies I've been gobbling...

I am.  Had shoulder issues last year.  Cortisone shot in each one really cleared it up.  I was struggling to put the milk on the top shelf of the fridge with either hand.

Now I have been able to practice, play 18 back to back days without an issue.  Hitting the ball pretty well.  Index coming back down.  7 birdies in 4 rounds this spring which is pretty good for me.

Looking forward to some dry weather and some time to play.

Awesome stevo!  Glad to hear you're back in action.  That's good playing (by my standards anyway)...

Really fun 78 for me today.  I went full rhoudy after 3rd birdie of the round on 13 and went dubdubdub par par but was just hitting laser draws all day long...12-20 feet behind the hole...the easier I tried to swing the more solid I hit it...damn rhoudylax!  Had a couple different games going but on group skins won 9 on thirteen but had to validate with bogey or better...it's a long par four (435)..hit a googlyeyed snap hook that caught the bunker 150 out left but it hopped out on top of a birm from which I proceeded to snap hook the ball into the water up the left...knocked a 9i to 12' from 120 after a drop and left my bogey put on the lip....$90 fup...tilt..tilt...idontcarepars...
