    Dukes course today. Great day. Thoroughly enjoyed the course. 32 points but couple of birdies kept me happy 😊

    The course is looking pretty good just now. There would have been a few hard pin positions due to club championship..

    Games gone, 31 points today and that was with two 4 pointers.

    Cant drive, chipping is poor but at least the putter is still ok.

    Was looking forward to using my new putter tomorrow in the heat of battle for the first time. Then today my wife tripped in Princes Street and has broken her arm. So cooking, cleaning, washing and hoovering has to take precedence. FRUSTRATING!!

    A few?

    The approaches to the greens are hard enough thereÖSunday was a bit bonkers as they seemed to have sought out the biggest slopes in the greens and and approaches and plonked the holes either in front or behind them.

    If you like links courses though you would certainly love LevenÖespecially on a bright sunny day like we had.

    Wouldnít fancy playing it on a wet windy day tho!!

    5 under! Wow.

    Obviously knowing the course would help. Iíve played it before but itís a quality example of a course that the more you play it the more you will be able to plot your way round (rather than my half blind guesses!)

    Still thatís some score!

    I've hit a bit of a slump, driving like pro, still putting well but my long irons and chipping from off the green has been very poor this last week. an 83 and an 85 will see my handicap rise next week i'd imagine. Screenshot 2021-06-12 at 08.59.05.jpg

    I've been driving well recently with my old Ping G30 driver, but today i took the plunge and bought the new G425 from American golf because i had a £100 gift voucher not used from xmas.

    Boys and their toys.

    2 rounds now with Spider putter. Bounce game on Monday and medal today. Took about 9 holes Monday to be comfortable with it but since then it's been excellent, so backing up what Blackpool has said.

    18 points back 9 Monday and 36 today, including 3 putts that hovered on the edge. But not missed any annoying short putts in 27 holes which for me is amazing.

    I bought the G410 last summer. When I remember to let it do the work and swing smoothly it simply flies

    Glad you are getting the benefit from the putter, The new driver just goes and goes, i'm getting 20 yards more and straighter too.

    Although hoovering the car this morning and i've strained my back, bloody painful at the moment so no golf for the foreseeable.

    Sick of this game. Was striking my irons really good for a while and for some reason the last two times Iíve went out and played Iíve been chunking it, thinning it etc. This is compounded by now doubting myself standing over it and having too many swing thoughts. Where do I go from here!!!

    Thatís my golfing lifeÖIíve learned just to accept it and understand the next time I go out it will all change again!

    There always something slightly awry and sometimes something very awry!

    My driving was like your irons recently..went maybe a month of hitting lovely power fade drives more
    consistently than I have ever done then out of nowhere could hardly get a half decent drive for about two weeksÖthen last Sunday the controlled fade was back and Iíve hit the two best rounds of the year!

    In my head Iím doing the same routine, same set up, same swing but on any given day the results are dramatically different

    Sure Iíll be back to topping it off the first next time out though!

    I've not played for a while due to a bad back, i played Friday and was all over the place first 9, so i just did a routine my mate does all the time. He puts his club at the ball and makes sure it's aiming where he wants the ball to go, then he gets himself lined up accordingly.

    Did that for the back 9 and scored 19 points. Sometimes it just takes a little bit of going back to basics to sort it out. Did the same on Monday for all 18, and came in with 37, and that's with my back still a little tender.

    I've had the same problem. A few weeks ago I was hitting my irons really well, then all of a sudden thinned and clunked everything. Nothing felt different but found I had started to stand a fraction too far away. Meant the toe of the club was slightly off the ground. Stepped forward one inch and they started to work again! Scored 41 points yesterday at Newbattle!

    A frustrating game of small margins

    Played my first game of the year yesterday (struggling to find time due to work, young child and a bad back.)

    A mate of mine has become a member up at Panmure. Lovely course, tricky one for the first game back after a break though.

    From about the 13th hole on we had a fairly stout wind at our backs and it was good fun letting rip with the driver at this time of year. My mate has bulked up a bit and got a bigger driver since we last played together and some of his hitting was obscene - knocking it through the back of 380 yard par 4ís.

    Lovely course though, a great day out and Iíd recommend it to anyone.

    Golf is just brilliant at this time of year.
