Teetime Open AAGC

Yesterday I participated in Teetime Open which where held in AAGC. Cool to have a home course advantage but I didn’t manage to play to my handicap. I managed to get 31 points which could have been better if my driver and some of the irons strokes had worked a bit better. A day with sun and good company including one of the best players in the club, but also a player who should have stayed at home. Did I forget to mention that I don’t like people interfering my lineup when I’m about to drive my ball of the tee and asks about my 3-wood – shut the f… up and prepare your own shot instead of wasting our time by talking! It took over five hours to play the 18 holes, that is too long time to be out in the sun, it should have been maximum 4,5 hours.

How to play faster:

  • Do the club selection before you get to the next tee or your ball on the fairway. If your ball is farest away from the flag, its your turn.
  • Read the putting line and prepare your put when others are putting, but don’t get in their way.
  • Don’t waste ten practice swings, one or two is enough and you save energy.

I got a new handicap because of the low score but hopefully I can lower it again some other day. 🙂  My handicap is now 14.5, it went up 0.1 🙁

Sankt Hans

Yesterday we celebrated “Sankt Hans” also known as Midsummer in Denmark. My girlfriend, my brother and I participated in the local golf turnament at AAGC where we played 9 holes and got some good barbecue food afterwards.

My brother won the 3rd prize in his group (C) and I managed to win the 3rd prize in my group (B) – both of us got a few bottles of good wine which is nice. 🙂

I should have made more than the 17 points, but I did a few very bad errors where I didn’t pay enough attention to the my game, hopefully I’ll do better in the weekend. I have to practice my short game to do better (putting and chipping).

I hope the good weather continues 😉

Wednesday open match

This Wednesday the gentlemen club had arranged a special invitational match where other members from AAGC could participate in the golf match with dinner afterwards. The weather was perfect and a lot of people showed up for a great day on the course.

My brother participated in the event and took the first prize in his group. Congratulations! 🙂

Regarding my own game, well I started out great on the back nine holes (start on #9) but on #1 and #2 I really threw it all in the gutter with a ball out of bounds and a few balls in the water hazard – that I just lame!

I ended up with a par on #8 where I lost a round of beer where we played ‘last ball in hole looses’. 31 points in total and hopefully more the next time I play a round. Btw, the short game inspired by Phil is still going strong and my driving has gone insane, but in a good meaning, with lengths around 210-250 meters – nice! 🙂
