A Frustrating Round

VENUE: Beckenham Place Park
ACTIVITY: 18 Holes Of Golf

Score: 116 (59/57). One par, two GIRs and five bogeys.

A round I felt OK with until the last hole. I was just off the green and about 60′ from the hole. An intended chip and run went 45 degrees right into a deep bunker with a cliff-face to get out over. I decided to play safe. No heroics for me bearing in mind how poor my bunker play has become, so I aimed to go out parallel to the green and on to grass. Took me three shots as the first two dribbled back in to the sand.

Apart from that, I was pretty happy with many aspects. Particularly my driver shots: Five over 180yds, with a top distance of 200yds, plus another (on the first!) which went about 224 yds but in to the ditch so of course didn’t count (I couldn’t believe what I was seeing – I never hit the ball that far from that tee, but this was a beaut!)

A 6-iron on the the 6th green was another majestic shot I’ll remember for a long time.

I have learnt, properly I think, that a good golf shot for me combines a hip turn to start the downswing, and no tension. Following Rickard Strongert’s advice to breath out consistently helps a lot with this.

Still, I’ve come home feeling really grumpy. Four 3-putts didn’t help.
