Wednesday 11 October 2017

It’s been a fairly quiet week on the golfing front, with no opportunity for a weekend sally on to the course due to Alastair and Ramona’s wedding in London on the Saturday, which was a very enjoyable day and certainly more rewarding than repeated choruses of ‘why didn’t I do that the first time?’ and other golfing cliches. So it was down to yesterday’s round with the Ambassadors to see whether attempting to up the ante on pre-shot focus would bear results.

And the answer was predictably a fairly ambiguous one, as the round contained much of the usual mix of controlled precise play and wild randomness. It was a Texas Scramble and so a team format and less easy to gauge one’s own level of play overall, but I guess I shouldn’t evaluate my game too harshly. There was plenty to be happy about off the tee, my irons largely behaved themselves and my feel on the greens was pretty good, so a few moments of looseness can be forgiven.

I was particularly pleased with our birdie on the long uphill par 4 7th on which I contributed all three shots, a gloriously long three wood off the tee, a 7 iron struck to within a few feet of the pin, and a straightforward putt that never deviated from its line. Surprisingly it was the first time I had birdied that hole, so I amended my ongoing eclectic scorecard for Chilworth for the first time in quite a while. On that card I am now 13 under. Which has a nice ring about it.

On the range this evening I was striking the ball really nicely. Let’s hope I can hang on to that for the weekend.

  1. Rob,

    Good to hear you carried some solid play in the scramble and continued it on the range. You’re right, it can be hard to judge your game as a whole during a scramble….I guess you just have to enjoy the good ones and the relaxed format 🙂
