Did it! I broke 100

30/03/2010 at 13:14
Played on sunday straight after a night shift, coffee and lucozade managed to power me through the 18 holes. I thought I did ok but on totting up at the end I managed a 97...(a couple of 8s didn't help) this was my first time past the 100 mark, (i know its not much of an achievement) final proof that I AM getting better slowly. grins all round.

Well done - have you thought about which club you hit the best? And just using that the majority of the time.

My mate and i used to play holes with just PWs - very funny all kind of shot shaping de lofting etc... but the point was we rarely strayed from the fairway (3 x PW ~300-330yds 2 putts = bogey x 18 holes = +18 not bad )

Definately worth thinking about if you want to go a little lower.

well done fella-stick to it , play often and other milestones will follow soon  , oh and some dissappointments along the way

My fave at the moment is my 17 deg Cleveland 4 wood, use it off the tee and the deck, fairway and light rough, feels great when everything goes right and doesnt punish me too harshly when it doesn't. Putting is doing ok too, I'm using a 1950s blade as I just can't seem to find anything else I like. Main losses are due to duffed shots on the fairway (trying to hit the ball too hard) and poor chipping.

Well done, its a milestone, and good for you to report your gross score rather than a net score or Stab pts. Aim for sub 90 next.

Nice one, it definitely is a good achievement. I aimed for mid 90's next but found i fluctuated between low 90's to 100.

I just made sure i never sneaked into the 100's again.

keep it up and good luck

Well done David, the feeling only gets better when you break 90, then 80!

Cheers guys.

I'm going to go for a H/C soon as I've been told that I am elligible even as an "academy member" of our club. The course is a par 72, so if I score 3 97s (for arguments sake) will I have a H/C of 25?

well done David, I'm am aiming to do that myself-maybe your success will inspire me this weekend.

by the way anyone played the following clubs, Riddlesden-Grange Fell-Poulton Le Fylde-Alston Moor, any thoughts if so?

congrates on breaking the 100 mark whats your next one 95 ..... 90?
30/03/2010 at 18:50
maintaining sub 100 i think. I also occasionally play with vintage kit (Persimmon woods and Macgregor blades) so a sub 100 round with this bag would be great.

hi simon, i have played Riddlesden. what a laugh. you will enjoy the views if nothing else. i had a disasterous round but a one over par on each of the signature holes 6 and 15.


another i can recommend is Ben Rhydding. again another hilarious round of golf with great views

Well done David. A milestone met, good for you.

2 questions though mate, why the 4 after your name, I assumed you where a cat 1 golfer .

Do you think the fact that you didn't count your score until after the round and it being the first time you broke 100 is a co-incidence ?????????

30/03/2010 at 20:59

Well done.

I LOVE my 17* 4 wood. Sometimes it can go as far as the driver!.

I also used to love playing golf of the nightshift. Only decent thing about it (except the 33% allowance).

The 4 after my name was an auto thing as it wouldn't let me have dave phillips when I signed up....should be dave phillips 28

I only add up after each 9 so don't keep a running total...

33%!!! I only get 25!!!

Well done David. 100 is the first milestone hopefully of many you will reach.
