Lakeside Lodge - Lodge Course - 27/09/18

Today's effort wasn't much of an improvement on my outing with the women on Tuesday. Once again conditions were good, which is more than I can say for my golf.

I found the right-side ditch with my drive off the 1st tee. A penalty drop was followed by wild hybrid that put me well into the trees on the opposite side of the fairway. A 7-iron out managed to avoid all the trees and put me back on the fairway, from where a 3-wood recovered some ground. I then got on with an 8-iron and two-putted for a blobbed 8. Not a good start. The 2nd was only a minor mishap in comparison. After my drive I went over the ball with my hybrid, moving it hardly any distance. The next attempt was better, allowing me to pitch on, two putts giving me a nett bogey 6.

My hybrid tee shot on the 3rd was short and right. My chip and run didn't run much, leaving me short. A second attempt put me on the green leaving me two putts for a nett par 5. I had a really good drive on the 4th, 184 yards centre fairway. I then hit one of my longest ever 7-iron shots at 152 yards. Fortunately it steered right of the lake, my intention having been to lay up! My pitch was a bit short but I could putt on and then two-putted for a nett par 6.

Continuing the brief good run, I parred the par 3, 5th after my hybrid shot found the green. The 6th wasn't too bad either. After the drive my hybrid shot was poor, but a 6-iron then put me on the green, where two putts gave me a nett par 5. Another good drive on the 7th was followed by a not-so-good 3‑wood. My hybrid then found the bunker, which I cleared but was still off the green. I putted on and two-putted for a nett bogey 7.

The 8th was equally scrappy. After an average drive I hit a good 3-wood of 157 yards. My 6-iron was then short and left, followed by a fluffed pitch, needing another to get on. Two putts gave me another nett bogey 7. The 9th was let down by another poor 3-wood, after making around 270 yards from my first two shots. I then hit a poor hybrid, following which I needed two more shots to get on the green. Two putts then made it a well-blobbed 8.

I came in on 55, but it felt a lot worse from the way I had played. I had 18 putts, two on each hole, and scored 12 points. Another game to forget!
