Nicely done, Hugh!Congratulations!
3 birdies and "countless" pars, it's a reiatlvely really easy 70's for Hugh despite this being his "first". Now that you have tasted the sweetness of the "fruit", I'm sure there will be many more below 80 scores in the days to come ...
Go Hugh Go!
Thanks all for the nice words!:blowzy:Nicely done, Hugh!
It's hard to produce your personal best near the end of the season with all the golf scars so it's more telling about your potential for the next season.
Hope there is a lot more to come, especially at next year's tournament
It seemed nothing I could have legally done to "stop" you from scoring below 80's. It's just too easy for you ...Thanks all for the nice words!:blowzy:
I didn't realize breaking into 70s coming quietly. Robin, our score keeper, reminded me that I had +1 at back 9 (front 9 +3) before moving onto the last two holes. That brought me some distraction and hit a double bogies at 17th:bsmile:.
It was my luck day!::santa: Still a long way to go!
You're sure it's today, Robin? Oct.19? I know you meant Oct.29Inspired by Hugh, I shot a cool and personal best of "81" in Manderley (north-south) today, October 19, 2011.
It started with a jokingly bold promise (as I always do) of breaking 80 before the game. After "+8" front 9 (4 pars, 3 bogies m 2 double and 1 triple bogies) - pretty decent by my standard - Hugh teased that in theory I still had a chance to break 80. Sure enough, my game turned "hot" and I actually maintained that slim chance after the 17th hole (by then I had 7 pars and 1 bogy for +1 back 8). The 18th was a par-5 and I started with a great drive and got on the green in three shots for a GIR. Unfortunately I three putted this final hole for a final score of 81 (+8 front and +2 back) - my personal best. A huge confidence booster!
Hugh had a sub-par game and still shot an easy 82. Jeff also had an off game and shot 101 (but his driver is back and was very consistent throughout the game). Jack was clearly affected by jetlag and also shot 101. OK I didn't break 80, but I managed to get a personal best and actually beat Hugh, it really feels good!
Thanks ca4 for the encouraging words. I guess I am too excited, couldn't even type the correct date. Or maybe I just wish it's just Oct. 19 so that there will be 10 more days of golfing for this season.You're sure it's today, Robin? Oct.19? I know you meant Oct.29
All joking aside, congrats on your PB? 81 is a great score at any course. You guys are having so much fun late in the season. I wonder who's the next to post PB there
Keep the those nice scores coming!
