    Pretty solid round. 8 over playing off 7. No birdies, but more importantly, no doubles or worse. Wind was a bit tricky, 180 degree change in direction a few holes in made things a difficult. Hit a few very poor drives but they didn’t hurt me. After a big day in the hospitality tent at the Victorian Open yesterday I was pretty pleased with my efforts

    Played a sim scramble tonight with 9 other guys for a birthday celebration (we were mostly there for the beer and cheese curds). I'm not fond of scrambles in the sim, but I was absolutely lighting it up, especially with the new driver. I was roasting balls (several just under 300 and long of 311) and shaping them - the fades / cuts weren't as easy as the draws, but they were there - something I've never been able to do consistently or intentionally with my prior equipment. Distance and accuracy have dramatically increased, and I can't wait to get outside. Someone come melt the rest of this snow!!

    Much improved on Tuesday,11 over with 2 triples and a double. The bad holes really killed me, but so much better than my round on Saturday where I was 15 worse than handicap🤮

    I’ve played my 2 top bucket list courses 3 times each, Royal Melbourne West and Cape Wickham, so my next bucket list would have to be The Old Course. I’ve walked around it( on a Sunday) and raked a bunker. My daughter is spending 6 months in Scotland this year and I’m planning a Europe trip so might be a chance.

    I’ve been fortunate to play all over the world and have already crossed a bunch off my bucket list. I would really like to make it down to OZ someday and play some of the sandbelt gems with @Peaksy68.
    But for this thought experiment, there is one area that sticks in my head more than others. Cape Kidnappers and Kauri Cliffs on the North island of NZ. Topographically speaking, I’m not sure there’s another place quite like it. My best buddy got to experience it on his honeymoon and offered a glowing review. OP suggested a drop everything scenario, and at their admittedly eye-watering rates, that might just be the financial outcome of a trip to this postcard maker.

    I am playing that course (hint: it’s the “home of golf”) in just a bit more than four months.

    Thought I'd start a new thread for this year. Same spreadsheet is linked here https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1P9-C6rS1vIO44rYbPDqQgLlTxGxYQtsQHAs31t1j_sU/edit#gid=1292641992
     
    Ticked off a couple in my first round for the year, a couple of lip outs kept the tally to two.

    My back up back lives at my in-laws holiday apartment.
    I'll be taking a few recently replaced clubs next time I go to fill out the bag.
     
    Driver - Nickent 4DX with Grafalloy Epic
    3 and 5 Woods - TM Burner 08 with Grafalloy Epic
    4 Hybrid - TM Rescue 09 with Grafalloy Epic
    5-E (couldn't resist) Ben Hogan Apex Edge Pro with Hogan Apex 4 
    50,54,58 Wedges - Cleveland CG15 Black Pearl Wedges
    Putter - Ram Zebra 
    Sun Mountain Sync Bag
     
    The top end of the bag will be "new" for my back up bag, and are all clubs that I know I can use, unlike most of the clubs that they are replacing.
