    Peaksy68 got a reaction from Goober in Time For Some Change   
    Lots of changes going on for me. Firstly in September I changed golf clubs after 20 years as a member at my old one.  Then the week before Christmas I handed in my resignation after almost 19 years at my current workplace.  Almost feel like I need to reintroduce myself to the forum too, haven't spent a lot of time here lately.
    I'm enjoying my new club, course isn't as good but condition is excellent and the people are great.  Saturday rounds coming in under 4 hours (compared to 4.45) is also a big improvement. Get to practice hitting my own balls off grass too which is a great change for me.
    Not exactly sure what I'll do work wise. I've got more than 6 months leave getting paid out so I've got some time to decide. Probably pick up some locum work where there's some good golf courses nearby.  Looking forward to the next phase and hopefully get to play more golf.

    Personally it doesn’t cause me any grief. I would have preferred bifurcation, but not hitting it quite as far isn’t going to stop me playing or enjoying the game.

    Peaksy68 got a reaction from Javs in MGS Forum Member VCT - YTD Forum Cup Points Race *Week 32 Update*   
    My vote is for Javs, he’s overdue for a 7 or 8 better than handicap, he hasn’t had one for a couple of weeks. Of course RoverRick could have yet another similar score. These guys scores this year have been truly astounding. Don’t know how they can do it.

    Broke out a long cellared wine to celebrate my youngest’s 21st birthday. Still drinking beautifully which was a big relief after waiting this long.

    Peaksy68 got a reaction from rkj427 in How'd you play?   
    Finally starting to play some better golf after several months of reasonably ordinary golf.  Joined a new club in September after 20 years at my previous one, and haven't been playing much due to work and travel.
    The course is shorter, but narrower and the greens are much smaller. Shot 7 over to play to my handicap 2 rounds ago, and backed it up with a 4 over playing off 7 on Saturday.  Managed to win the A grade comp and also won a "board" event that was played over the 2 rounds. Took me 13 years to win my first board event at the old club, less than 2 months here!  The fact that I didn't know about until afterwards probably helped me avoid choking.
    I can practice off grass hitting my own balls now, and I'm pretty sure that's been good for me.
