Welcome to the magical world of 34!

Thursday night was a good night to play golf.

In a week that saw NO Chris, mainly due to having “other stuff” to do, I had my best round ever on Fountains.

Yay yay yay I shot a 34 yay yay yay

David shoots a 34 on Fountains - The first 34 for a number of years

The score says it all…

I won’t get too far up my own arse as there is still room for improvement – there is at least another 2 easy shots I could have lost, but suffice to say, it was an easy victory…

But, taking it back to the real world, what exactly does “other stuff” mean? Can anyone shed any light on any of the “other stuff” that Chris had to do? And what might it be that was more important than playing golf? Apart from skiing, I can think of nothing else (that doesn’t involve penetrating females) that is more important than playing golf – especially on a warm sunny early summer evening with the promise of a chilled beer or two afterwards.

In fact even the might Google only has this to offer as far as “other stuff” is concerned…

One thing I nearly forgot – It was actually a double victory – As well as scoring the 34, I also landed my 8th hole tee shot on the green nearest the pin and therefore scooped the prize money of a whole £3!!!

New Record!

Thought I’d better quickly log in and post the great news that the course record has been broken TWICE in the last 2 weeks. Yes, that’s TWICE!

Last week Alan hit a sweet 36 to break the previous best of 37 set by David over a year ago, then last night I had my best ever round and carded 34, 5 pars and 4 bogeys. Pretty pleased with it i’ve got to say.

AND i’ve got a new scanner, so i can show you the card without having to wait for David….

Elly didn’t quite manage a record-breaking round, but he did have a strop and stormed off after the 6th hole as you can see from the scorecard.

Me and David are now members so we’ll be playing on the championship course, Willow Valley, more often now including tomorrow where we tee off @ 0830.

We all played there last week, and had buggies. It was fun, but we were all rubbish. I had the lowest score of 115 which just about says it all.

Here’s a few pictures of us, with buggies!

We had to keep separate scorecards because it was a ’proper’ round, so here is mine and elly’s effort:
