I've got my 21st away day comp on Sunday @ ShirleyGolfClub singles medal, but only my 4th singles medal. So 16 comps be it pairs or am/ams that needs to change in 2018.
My goals in 2017 are no where near complete and Time is running out :-( get to 6 win 3 more times, and shoot +2 or better on an away course medal. Big asks but having sorted my head out removed the 3 putting mindset and swapped my driver back to my 2009 model 909. I'm ready to hit it hard.
7.5 having gone up from 7.1 since July. 16 medals Ive shot 2 77s those being the only two times I've played under my handicap
Stats are great :-) and don't lie
Quiet week for me with a trip on Sunday to Walmley GC and another single medal :-) - goal: get in the prizes on an way day medal :-) and the regulation no doubles would be great.
Where we all playing??
Little rant played over the border in mid-May and finally, the team clicked and we won by 6 shots, it's been coming and we finally got hot putters all at the same time.
we finished the round the I needed to get off, Steve my playing partner said I'll stay see if we might pick up GREAT. the captain then told us there's no presentation tonight guys, so off we went hoping for a prize :-) the results from previous am/am the winners had 105pts OMG so 90 points having played out of our skins and racked up -1 per hole pretty much in rain and gusty winds, I thought we had a chance. Mr Motivated Steve said we had blown it.
So no contact, no emails for a week and then my other playing partner was miffed so he rang them to be told yes you've won, the committee needs to sort out the prizes.
Initially, I thought what a great idea no waiting around or 3-4-5 hours to see if you've won, the club will sort it. a month on 5 phone calls later, we finally received the prize in the post today :-) phew panic over. What hassle in the end.
Didn't realise winning was so stressful best get back to hacking about like most weeks.
A rant shared is a rant halved, share my pain :-)
I hope the next am/am is successful and less stressful
Kinda like the pmg system already, even tho it's a faff using the 20 away points. It's actually worked out well with a new destination Ramsdale park 10pts for me and my pal £20 each (based on rebuy being £4 a point)
