  1. Hit 50 balls after work. Trying to ingrain my new 2/3 swing. Also worked on @chisag 's "Swing every iron like a wedge" theory. 6 iron was much better when I swung it like an easy wedge. Distance, accuracy and ball flight were so much better. Now I need to take it onto the course.
  2. Had my 4 month skin check last week, very happy to say it was all good, no biopsy required, let alone anything cut out. I'm on a 4 month schedule as I've had two Melanomas removed this year. Thankfully both were fully contained within the dermis and no further follow up was required. I was fully expecting to have another biopsy and removal, very pleased that wasn't the case. Two more clear checks and I can go back to yearly checks. Melanoma is a national curse here in Australia, the environment isn't well suited to pasty pale people like me, curse those Anglo-Celtic genes.
  3. Next time, remember to do what you are told. Sweet potato, not thumb. Glad it's not me, my wife would never let me live it down. Another point, very glad to see a picture of you without "the hat" Hope the thumb comes good soon
  4. Thanks everyone, had a good relaxed day. Hoping 51 treats me better than 50. @Kenny B the weather here has been unseasonably cool. My daughter is travelling to Seattle on 30 November for a basketball trip and when I looked on Thursday it was the same temperature as here. I'm expecting things to get warmer over the next week or so, and hopefully she won't come across severe cold.
  5. I think there may be a line forming for this
  6. First round for a couple of weeks after a sore back put me out of action. Started well with a birdie, holed a 50 foot downhill putt that looked in from 20 feet. It all went backwards after that, hit a bad shot on every hole for the next 11 holes and missed way too many 6-10 foot putts. Finished a bit better, ended up 12 over. Most of my bad shots were due to overswinging. Need to remember that 2/3 is the new full. Had an enjoyable day despite the poor play. Played with a long term mate and a couple of his mates who have recently joined my club. Lots of laughs interspersed with some good golf. For a change the weather was pretty good, only blowing 1 1/2 - 2 clubs.
  7. Thought I'd get in early (just to steal @MattF 's thunder) in wishing Stud a happy birthday. Thanks for all your work around the place, hope you have a great day.
  8. Belated happy birthday (technically happy anniversary of your birthday) Hope to get a chance to tee it up with before we both get too much older. I was going to go all @downlowkey in my use of language, but unfortunately I haven’t the equivalent breadth of vocabulary to match you

    CG2 WITB Through The Years

    I thought it should be "CG2 WITB Through This Week"
  10. A good reminder for me. Keep up the good work MGS.
  11. Last saw Neil (and the Horse) 6 years ago. Outdoor concert in appalling weather. They bought Like a Hurricane forward from the encore due to the conditions. Neil getting one of the roadies to dry Old Black mid song without missing a beat was probably my music highlight. Currently kicking back listening to Dinosaur Junior, Without a Sound. Great mellow album with lots of memories attached.
  12. First round of Club Championship, really tough day. Wind was crazy, 30-35 mph with gusts even stronger. Played solidly on the front, turned 5 over. Back 9 was a different story. Racked up a series of doubles and limped in with a 49. The wind ended up frying my brain, struck the ball well but it really was guess work. Currently in 35th, the leader shot 5 over playing off plus 3.
  13. The only photo of me on the day and its after my only bad tee shot. I was very lucky to have a shot after it ended up much better than I expected. I'm blaming a long wait on the tee, not a lack of ability
