    Unlikely to make it to Aus, not enough margin. GCO have some really good multi box deals at the moment.

    77 today on punched greens and with bruised ribs. Playing the best golf of my life over the last 5 months

    Had an awful start, doubled the first. Playing with a 16 yo, he started a little better. I was 3 over after 6, at that stage he was 6 under, eagle, birdie, par, birdie, birdie, birdie. He turned 5 under with 2 bogeys.
     
    The back 9 was better for me, bogeyed the last to be1 over that side. The young bloke only managed to par in. I haven't played with him for about 6 months and he's hitting it 35 yards further with driver than when I last played with him.
     
    I finished 4th in A grade, and managed to reduce the handicap closer to where it should be.

    That is a crap day. Hopefully insurance (or the drivers company) will cover your losses. I imagine your Masters polos aren't easily or quickly replaceable, along with your glasses.

    This one could have gone in several different threads. I went to practice, the course was empty so I played a quick nine.
     
    It's so dry here that the run outs added a nice twist and I got the linoleum greens that our guys had heard about but didn't see when they were here a few weeks back.
     
    I hit two career long drives on 8 and 9 at Bayou. I'm certainly not used to having six iron and 9 iron into those greens from the tees that I play but I did today.
     
    I got to try a Kirkland, QStar pro and Pro VIx side by side. I certainly understand the Kirkland buzz, it wasn't better than the other two but being right there at $15? Wow! I finally got to hit some chips, pitches and mid irons with the QStar. Nice ball flight! It's very soft off the putter which is not my preferred feel so it would take some practice there but I could game it. For now I will stick with the ProVIx because I ordered the 4/3 special with my pro shop credit.
     
    Great day, first time that I dared to play solo in a while because of my heart. The cardiologist dismissed me from his care yesterday!

    Played twice this week.Wednesday I was playing pretty well, just hit it to 12 foot on the 6th when I answered a call from my wife. I normally wouldn't answer while playing, but knew my wife wouldn't normally call when I was at golf. My daughter was on a school trip in Vietnam (tough life!) but had got sick and was in hospital on an IV. Needless to say my game went badly south after that. Good news is she was able to fly out on schedule later that night and has recovered fully.
     
    Yesterday I was really struggling on the greens. They were very two paced, and I couldn't adjust. About to tee off on the 3rd (started on 10) 3 shots worse than handicap with 4 x 3 putts when the siren blew to call us off the course. Lightening and thunder made the clubhouse a good place to be.

    Drinking my last bottle of Bellarine Estate 2007 Shiraz. Delicious cool climate Shiraz, very different from stereotypical Australian Shiraz. I have a soft spot for this wine, as I helped make it. My mate who was the winemaker was in hospital after a winery accident, leaving me to process 10 tonnes of grapes. It's still travelling well, with vibrant red fruits, great balanced acidity and spicy black pepper on the finish. Went a treat with roast lamb.

    First 6 pack I bought in Hawaii a year ago was Lagunitas IPA, I was very impressed. It was a bit too hoppy for my wife, which suited me, as I got to drink the majority.
     
    Unfortunately I've never seen any of the brews here, which is probably just as well as I'd need to sell a kidney to pay for it.

    I got a very pleasant surprise when I found out I got to keep the MLA putter I got chosen to review. I'd assumed I would send it back after finishing my review.
     
    By the way, it still works great.

    Why? No bullshit, flaming and big ego's. It's that simple, just people who enjoy the game, are respectful of each other and have a good time.
