Lakeside Lodge - Lodge Course - 29/10/18

I played today but it was so bad that I'm not going to give the normal walk-through. I've been suffering a lot of sciatica lately and I think I'm at the point where I must accept that the golf isn't helping. I really struggled today over the last few holes, feeling that my mobility was gradually reducing. My game certainly deteriorated. Weather wise we are at last experiencing a colder spell, although it was bright and not too cold while you were in the sun. Certainly I can't blame the weather for my performance.

My driving held up and most of my hybrid shots stayed out of trouble although I did manage to pull the ball left into the lake on the 8th. My irons were very patchy, with some good shots but far too many bad ones. Four-putting on the 4th after a reasonably good approach didn't help the final outcome, especially as I followed that with three putts on the 5th.

I took a penalty drop on the 8th after sending the ball into the lake and then three-putted to take my total for the hole up to 9. I then followed that with another 9 on the 9th, having pushed my third shot up onto the right bank where it settled in soft earth with trees immediately to the front. My first attempt was an air shot, the next getting me clear but adding only 30 yards. And I was short again with the next, putting from off the green and then two-putting to finish.

After all that I came in on 62 with 21 putts and only 7 points. I think that says it all!

All in all a very disappointing and tiring round. I've decided not to play again until the sciatica eases.

Game Golf scorecard.
