Record breaking scores!


Today is a day that will go down in Golfing history – Well at any rate in Golf With Des Golfing History.

Stan and I played Willow Valley’s Pine Valley course this PM as neither of us had played for some time and we wanted a slightly easier re-entry into the world of golf.  As it turned out we couldn’t have asked for a better start as both of us played exceptionally well and I finished on 82 (nett 63), with Stan finishing on 85 which is his best score on Pine.

If Roy Castle had seen us play it would have been a Record Breaker!

It's a shame Roy is dead, as he'd have been very impressed with our "Record Breaking Scores". In fact did anyone see Norris?

Although I’m happy with the score, I know I could have done at least 3 or more shots better.   My driving and my iron play were excellent, but my short game really let me down with lots of short or too long chips, plus on the last 3 holes I could have saved at least another 3 shots if I’d have not played like a tit.

Anyway, all in all a great round – Feel free to digest the scores at Golfshot’s website
