  1. Date 12/04/2022 Course Name Werribee Park Golf Club Gross Score 76 Course Handicap 6 Gross Strokes over/under par 4 Net Score to Par -2 Net Score 70 Net Birdies or better 7 Longest Drive 323 After today, my course handicap will have gone down 3 strokes in about 2 months. Things are looking great with my game. Hit 14 greens in this round. With the longest drive, there is a par 5 where there is a large downslope about 280 yards from the tee. I got some assistance from that.
  2. Does it come with a little disc thing that helps you stand it up accurately? I haven't handled one but I imagine it could go off line immediately if it wasn't position (no matter how square you strike it).
  3. Update. Snuck in a peek at some practice and Genevieve Ling was in the group immediately behind Cameron Smith. Easy to follow both.
  4. On topic with this. For the first time, both the Women's and Men's Australian Open is being played on the same courses at the same times, for the same prizemoney. I'm thinking when I'll head down and watch. It sounds great being able to watch Gabi Ruffels for a few holes, then changing and watching Cam Smith for a few, then see what Genevieve Ling is up to.

  6. You get cold fronts coming off Antarctica that bring about cold snaps. You can see them coming from the west and you can go from tshirt weather to North Face jacket weather in minutes.
  7. Wanting to ask about the upcoming changes to these rules. I know a few on here have done rules update courses so will be helpful to provide clarification. In summary, are the new rules: You can't stand behind your partner to get an indication of putting line. You can stand beyond the hole to watch your partner putt. If it's your opponent, there are no restrictions to where you stand. There would be etiquette issues with standing too close behind them. Would this summary be accurate or are there other rules that change what I've written above?
  8. Around the south east it's been raining so much. There have been floods all over the place. In Melbourne we've had a couple of days of sunshine, but it's definitely been one of the rainiest and gloomiest springs I can remember.

  11. Course Name: Werribee Park Golf Club Gross Score: 86 Course Handicap: 6 Gross Over/(Under): 14 Over Net Score to Par: +8 Net Score: 80 Net Birdies or better: 3 Longest Drive: 296 Played this on Saturday but didn't get to post until now.
  12. When I was a teenager, I played Dynamic Golds because that's what good players used (and playing around scratch, I was good). In my late 20s when I'd taken the game back up, I went for my first proper club fitting and the difference was amazing. I ended up in Dynamic gold SLs and I couldn't believe how much difference the mass of a shaft would matter. I'm not the strongest of guys so I have to be careful of mass so I don't have to put in huge effort to swing the club. About 2 years ago I got fitted for my current irons. The fitter used the Mizuno Shaft Optimiser to narrow down shaft choice initially. I can't remember the specific shaft I tried first (I think it might have been in the Modus range), and it was counterbalanced. HATED IT! Hit two shots with it and handed it straight back to the fitter because it had the oddest feeling like you were swinging a club with no head. Luckily I loved the next recommendation of the $-Taper. It's a bit odd that I hated the counterbalanced shaft in the irons but love the Hazrdus yellow in my driver.
  13. Was it the loudness of those drivers that was bad, or more the timbre of the sound?
  14. Putting a loophole finding hat on. Does the ball have to be embedded in the first pitch mark it makes? Couldn't it bounce a few times, but land in sand in the general area and come to rest embedded below the level of the ground?
  15. So jealous you're going to Cape Wickham. Have an awesome trip!
  16. First thing I saw when you posted your swings is very similar to the primary source of my bad habits. On your backswing, your hips turn so little. All sorts of compensations can become necessary from that, and your movement patterns are less consistent and powerful. About a month ago I had a lesson with one of the pros at my course and that is what we worked on. After implementing the change and consciously rotating my hips more, I feel I have more time in my swing, have much better contact, and the ball goes further. My scores have been quite good as well. A couple of drills I would recommend: this reinforces the feel of pelvis rotation. The other one we did is making a backswing, pausing at the top ensuring that pelvis has rotated well and correcting pelvic rotation if needed. Then hitting the ball. The contact on the first few will likely be awful, but after a few reps it will become easier. It's designed to reinforce the feel of rotating hips well.
  17. Managed to get a second round in for the week. Got back to the recent form. Got pipped by a 74 from an 8 handicapper for the daily course winner. Werribee Park GC Gross: 75 Course Handicap: 7 (after this round it's finally dropped for next round) 3 Over Gross Nett Score: 68 (-4) Nett birdies: 7 (5 real birdies really helps) Longest Drive: 292 (sun's been out a few days and the course is drying up)
  18. Turns out I am mortal. Because of all of the rain and flood repairing going on, the rough is approaching 2020 Winged Foot levels. So had some fun getting out of that. That said, I was putting my drives in there, which I haven't been doing lately. Werribee Park GC Gross: 82 Course Handicap: 7 (turns out it didn't drop after last round. It went from the high end to the low end of the range that gets rounded to 7) 10 Over Nett Score: 75 (+3) Nett birdies: 4 Longest Drive: 279
  19. Thanks. I just added them up and I hit 15 GIR for the round. That many always helps a low round.
  20. After heaps of rain over the last few weeks. We got an hour of sunshine during the round. The greens are very soft and I'm swinging very well so there were a lot of darts being thrown. Werribee Park Golf Club Gross Score: 73 (par 72) Course Handicap: 7 (though not anymore) 1 Over Net score to par: -6 Nett birdies: 6 Longest drive: 272 (there's very little distance on the ground)
  21. Opportunity for me to go top in the championship? I spent the whole fantasy season dropping further and further behind, is now my chance for revenge?
  22. I'll add today's round. Werribee Park Golf Course 76 gross (par 72) 7 handicap -3 Nett score to par - 69 5 Nett birdies Longest drive 295 yards on GPS
