    I (like many) joined for the opportunity to do a review.
     
    I stayed because I love the reviews, and the relaxed, respectful way this forum runs. I feel like nearly everyone on here is here for the right reason.

    A welcome (and long overdue) return to form. Played off 8 today, for the first time in 2 1/2 years. 4 over (2 each side), iron play was a bit scrappy but drove it well and putted well on recently cored, very slow greens. Managed a win in A grade, so happy with the result.

    A few Carlton Draughts after my round (very ordinary commercial beer, but cold and wet)
    A Mountain Goat Steam Ale, a tidy ale, with lots of fruity esters.
    Hoddles Creek Chardonnay 2013 with Roast Chicken thighs for dinner. Rates as highly for QPR as its Pinot Noir sibling, looking forward to it.

    A Yenda Unfiltered Lager, pretty tidy, serious style Lager while in the pool (a late season hot day here, got to 95)
    Now a glass of Tahbilk Marsanne 2016, very good crisp dry white, a bit too young, but its leftover from cooking up mussels last night.
    I'll finish with Hoddles Creek Pinot Noir 2013 with my Weber roasted pork loin. It should go a treat, one of the best value Pinot's in Aus.

    Finalized the Big D and don't mean Dallas.

    Wouldn't exactly characterize it as a celebration but there are also no tears in my beer. Glad for my MGS family!

    Blown out to 6.8 from a low of 4.0. If it keeps going like this I'll have change my name to Ron Burgundy. I really don't want to hit my anchor point.

    Quite possibly, but also because no one wants to pay enough for well made appliances. Appliances now cost the same in $s as they did 20 years ago, so much cheaper when you take inflation into account.
     
    Most consumer goods now are designed to fail after a reasonably short time. If things are too well made, companies lose future sales, and eventually go out of business by making too good a quality products.

    Beautiful day for golf, spoiled only by the quality of my game. Played with my daughter, and we both struggled early. I was 5 over after 4 holes, ended up 9 over after an ugly double to finish.

    Finally got out for some full swing work today. Swung mostly easy 8 irons . My set up and posture have been awful lately so I focussed on that and getting a full smooth swing on.
    Also warmed up and down with some 40-60 yd pitches.
    Nice to be moving well enough to put some work in.

    Poor form continued, really struggled with irons. 10 over playing off 5. Drove the ball pretty well, but my misses cost me. Chipped well, 7 up and downs, but iron play killed me. Back was a bit better, hopefully it will improve enough for me to be able to get out and practice this week.

    Strange round today. Started with a tap in birdie after nearly holing out with a punch out from the middle of a bush, then proceeded to butcher the next 3 holes to be 4 over after 4. Played solid boring golf for the rest of the front 9 to be 4 over at the turn.
    Had another awful double (my 3rd) after my best drive of the day on the 10th, followed by a run of boring pars and another soft bogey.
    Greens were a little slow, left 2 shortish birdie putts short, and had several putts slide past on the high side after hitting them where I wanted.
     
    Not too dissapointed after breaking 80 despite 3 doubles.

    Are you suggesting that I need to HTFU?

    I'm a Radiographer (probably translates as X-Ray tech) Mostly doing general X-ray with a bit of CT scanning as well. Been doing it 26 years now, mostly working in major hospitals. More and more administration and teaching over the last few years, but I still really prefer clinical work.
