Playing in Comps

I’ve been playing comps at my local club for a little over 2 years now. Initially I didn’t really buy into the comp vibe and only decided to enter because it was the only way to guarantee a reasonable tee time on a Saturday. In other words, I got fed up following the last comp […]

Breaking 80

So I’ve been playing for a little over 3 years now and I’ve probably played over 400 rounds of golf and hit over 200,000 balls on the range. I get that that’s extreme. My worst completely recorded round ever was 171 at Windermere golf club. Recently I’ve been playing close to my 19.2 handicap having […]

Breaking 90

I’m pleased to say that I continue to make progress, generally hitting in the low nineties. Last Friday I had my best round ever when I went round in 42/42 for 84. That’s 6 under my current 19 handicap. On Sunday I played a 4BBB Stapleford open with my mate Gez and we turned in […]

I am Probably NOT the Worst Golfer in the World Anymore

Golf in the Lake District

I’ve joined Windermere Golf Club 🙂 Which might seem odd, given that my local golf club is 5 minutes away, and Windermere is a 30 minute drive. Here’s why … A few months ago on the way back to Ulverston, after playing Beckside, we decided to call in at Windermere, just to see what sort […]

Its Been Driving me Mad

So I’ve been at the driving range … A  lot Practicing with my driver and trying to develop repeatable accuracy, with some success On the 15th my golfing buddies were unavailable, so I persuaded an old climbing mate to join me for a round at Beckside Golf Club Frank had only ever played pitch n […]
