This Sunday we played at Abbey Moor. I like Abbey Moor. It is a quirky little 9 hole course, but I have never really mastered it. My last visit was the UK Golf League competition, where I had a disaster run – finishing at 52 or something. So I wanted to return to Abbey Moor in anger, and set the record straight. Also, i was hoping that my driving was on a rebound and would help me get back.
- 1st hole: Started badly, the slice ending on the 9th fairway. Hit a draw to just outside the green. Par
- 2nd : Topped the drive, recovered with a 4 hybrid. Killer pitch.. Bogie
- 3rd: Another slice. Lost the ball (suspect the guys in front picked it), got caught in the mud.. +4
- 4th: Killer Pitch, Par
- 5th: Par
- 6th: Par
- 7th: Bogie
- 8th: Killer Pitch, Par
- 9th: Another slice, took a penalty, never recovered.. +4
Finished with an overall +10. A bit of redemption, though the blowouts did not help much. Happy with my pitching & chipping. Driving needs (more) sorting. Mid irons can do with improvement. Mental game coming together.
Pradeep had a decent outing and played with his usual flair. He had some good holes, but equally some bad holes.
PG played military golf (left-right-left), lost a ball. The 5th was his nemesis again – I thought we lost PG too as he disappeared for a while.
RiG, started well, but then had a meltdown on the 3rd– he was seen trying to crawl into the bushes and attempt a shot while on all fours. He almost gave up and was seen walking aimlessly on the 5th J. He came back on the 8th and 9th. I think he finished at 51 or so. .. Not a good outing for him.
Abbey Moor.. tamed.. well nearly.
