  1. Unless the wording is "must" take relief, then you have to come out of it, sometimes in a worse position.
  2. Putter is safe, can't see it coming out of the bag at any time. I would need to do an extended trial of another putter that proves itself to be better to dislodge it. 5 Wood is on borrowed time, looking to replace it with something that has less left bias. 3 Wood may be collateral damage.
  3. At least you dressed well
  4. Watched him at the Victorian Open that he won a few years ago (co sanctioned European Tour at the time) Stunning how far he hit the ball, was even more slight then, looked like he needed to run around to get wet in the shower
  5. Shot of the day Blocked by a tree, 165 yards out, thick rough left of fairway, bunker front left of the green. Had to aim left of the bunker and cut the ears off a 5 iron. Finished pin high 20 feet from the pin.
  6. 12’ is good in a small field. My good approaches were on par 4’s, chip to 1’ on a short par 4 after my long drive, then a 9 iron from 120 yards to 5 feet (of course I missed the putt)

  8. Date 03/11/2023 Course Name Curlewis Gross Score 79 Course Handicap 7 Gross Strokes over/under par 8 Net Score to Par 1 Net Score 72 Net Birdies or better 4 Longest Drive 302 Rough start after a few too many drinks last night. Struggled with rhythm, particularly with irons. Drove the ball really with with only a couple of exceptions. Second 9 was much better, one over with a couple of birdies. Should really have been a couple of shots better with 2 very ordinary efforts with the putter
  9. I'll pair up with you, looks like @Alf. S has been snowed off the course. How about 2MuchPeaksy as a team name, suits what most people think of spending time with me
  10. Played a 9 hole practice matchplay match prior to pennant season (Interclub scratch matchplay, teams of 7) Played against a club stalwart, finished 6 up after the 9. Putted extremely well, short game was on too. Would have been 1 over. Think I might have played myself into my clubs second team. Hopefully, as I really enjoy matchplay and the team environment.
  11. Thanks for the reviews team. Sounds like PuttOut have another winner. I might have to add a Devil Ball to my existing PuttOut setup.
  12. In the past I would have said member testing bought me to the forum, but as this has been so limited over the last year (particularly clubs) I really only come for the discussion. I would like to be engaging in the member testing area, but it's a relative ghost town now.
  13. Date 03/04/2023 Course Name Curlewis GC Gross Score 79 Course Handicap 9 Gross Strokes over/under par 8 Net Score to Par -1 Net Score 70 Net Birdies or better 6 Longest Drive 0 A great start followed by a poor back 9. 4 better than handicap after 5 holes (2 under par) then reality kicked in. Triple and double on the 2 par 3's on the back 9 really hurt.

  15. Date 02/18/2023 Course Name Curlewis GC Gross Score 80 Course Handicap 9 Gross Strokes over/under par 10 Net Score to Par 1 Net Score 71 Net Birdies or better 4 Longest Drive 0 First round in a couple of weeks after a 2 week holiday. Really struggled on the greens which were significantly quicker than my last few rounds. Consistently well past the hole before over adjusting . Didn’t capitalise on a stretch of better than average ball striking, highlight was flushing driver and 3 wood to 15 feet on a par 5, lowlight was the 3 putt par that followed
  16. Highly likely that I'll start birdieing the same holes and won't get a look in on the ones I haven't No off season here!
  17. 3 more on Saturday. Put it close (about 1 1/2 feet on 2 , the other about 8 feet). if I keep us this rate I'll finish this of quickly, pretty sure that won't happen
  18. The brick is to keep heat in the bowl and help direct airflow, I was using a tile, but the brick lets me have the heat gun further away from the beans which makes temperature control a little easier. Have a look at https://coffeesnobs.com.au/forum/coffeesnobs-discussions/home-roasting-tips-tricks-ideas for some home roasting tips and different options
  19. Yes, cost me $5.50 over 10 years ago. I think I’ve got my money’s worth All it does is stir the beans, only heat is from the heat gun. I adjust the heat by changing the height of the heat gun
  20. Finally remembered to take a few pics of my setup
  21. Date 01/14/2023 Course Name Curlewis GC Gross Score 78 Course Handicap 7 Gross Strokes over/under par 7 Net Score to Par 0 Net Score 71 Net Birdies or better 7 Longest Drive 295 Strange round worth a huge gap between my best and worst. 3 birdies, and another 4 net birdies, a triple and a double. Hottest conditions I’ve played in for a long while, but managed the heat well.
