First Golf Competition...

Recommended Posts

My first comp tomorrow, albeit to get a card in for my Handicap.

I've only ever played with friends and family and on a couple of corporate days.  I've pretty much always played Stableford too.... tomorrow is a medal.
Any advice? I don't know anyone at my club yet so just put my name down on a time that suited me best.

Not looking forward to those first Tee nerves.

Nice Matt, I imagine my experience will be somewhat similar. I wish it was Stableford though!  The little points that you where pulled on, can you remember what they where? I only ask because at least you had that slight comfort blanket of playing with someone you knew, I literally know nobody and I am sure there will be mistakes I make...


Cheers Darren, I'm only playing in it to get the card in so I am not too worried about the score but when it comes to tomorrow I suppose its only natural to focus on my score...

My tips would be

  • Only look forwards. You can't alter the shot you've already played so don't dwell on it
  • Play the percentages. Better to guarantee a bogey then risk a double going for par
  • Dont be afraid to use your shots
  • Play the shot you know you can, not the shot you think you should

Its easy to worry about your score, try to forget about it. One hole at a time, enjoy a game of golf, try to treat it just like any other game and let the score come out however it comes out

Didn't go to badly....

Score wasn't great and first tee shot went about 2ft, recovered it well though.
Good experience though, looking forward to the next one in 2 weeks time now!
