Possibly the net division, but I would have to play my a$$ off. I'm a low single digit hdcp, so it would be hard to beat the double digit hdcp players that sandbagged to get their hdcp. The gross division would be basically impossible. We have several Web.com pros and several +4-+6 hdcps. I would have to shoot under par every round to beat them and that doesn't happen often.

If you don't mind me asking, what club are you a member of?

Chances are fair to middling. I'm defending champ at 135 so it's go time.  


At least in two weeks it is.

Won mine twice but I was 18 and 25 back then....thin as a 2 year old and hit the ball with my feet off the ground like jonney miller in his prime.....now I've now chance, happy just to get round in respectable Manor with a 2!
They have pictures in the club house of past winners, I do laugh at mine with my full head of hair like sideshow bob.... Sadly it's all gone now

I was sick for our championship this year and missed it. The championship flight was 10 guys all with plus handicaps. Minus 8 won this year (2 day metal play).

Came second last year was +6 with 6 holes to go bogeyed in and the guy who won finished +8. Only 2 rounds as our 2nd round of 3 got rained out which helped me get close.

Walked away with the nett though. Guy who won was off 2 I was out to 11 which is back to a more respectable 7 now.

Hoping I can play out of my skin this year and give it a real go working hard to cut out some dumb mistakes and go mid to low 70s on a more regular basis

I went in thinking if I could get in at even or under the first day I could probably be in the last group for Sunday and ya never know what will happen when the lights are on. Ended up with a 36 putt 74. (4 putted the first green for double and three putt bogey on the third - not to mention missing an eight footer for eagle on the second by three feet) and ended up in the lead by two. Played horrible on Sunday but made no big mistakes and held on for the victory.

I can, but I didn't.  I shot 74-73 ( A score that I said could win before it started).  I didn't take into consideration someone shooting 66 in round one!  Great round by him, I lost by 2!  Maybe next year!

I defend the matchplay title tomorrow in the finals and then the strokeplay title on the weekend.

I'm hoping I can find my game, not playing too good. I wasnt last year either though and found a way to finally get my name on the trophy.

I'm lucky this isnt a math test. Once a peg is in the ground all bets are off and I'll grind with the best of them.

I was able to defend the matchplay and strokeplay this weekend boys.

Proud of the fact my game was there when I really needed it. I was in a little slump heading in.

I had a harder mental time defending the title then I did last year winning my first. My brain is just flat out fried.

92-72, yep...   that didn't get it done.  It did get me last place in the Chip flight, however. :)

The 92 wasn't quite as bad as it seemed (hit 2 drives OB, skulled on 60 yd pitch OB and hit one tree on a short approach that pissed me OB); the 72 didn't feel quite as well as the number  ( I had 3 eagle putts yet had no birdies on those holes; I uncharacteristically made 3 bomb putts, 2 for par; hit the flagstick twice resulting in 2 birds).

I finished 2nd the last two years.  So this year I really practiced for it.  Re-looked at my entire game in the weeks before and worked hard on what I felt where my weaknesses.  I made a point to hit balls or plan every day for the 3 weeks going into it.  Saturday I put my best round ever by 2.  I even felt like I left 6 shots on the course with decent birdie putts that just did not fall but where very close.  It was one of my best days on the course.  Sunday morning on the range the butterflies were crazy.  I was playing with a guy who has one in the past and on the first tee he shakes my hand and says "you got this, just play your game".  I shot 1 better then Saturday and won by 2 strokes.

Words can't even begin to say how pumped I was after that weekend.

Nice work man!

I had a really hard time with nerves this year too. Nice job controlling them and getting the goal completed!

At my club, there are two main championships - a stroke play event in the spring and then a match play one in the fall which is really the official club championship. I am in no way a good enough player to compete in the championship flight of either. I have had some success over the years in my flight of the stroke play one winning either low-gross or low-net a number of times. The match play one has been an entirely different story for me. The variety of ways I have found over the years to snatch defeat from the Jaws of Victory in my matches is amazing. My first round match last year was played in absolutely abominable conditions - much of the match was played in a driving rain with water starting to pool all over the course. Even that can't explain just how badly I played, though. I lost to a guy who I am confident if we played 10 rounds together I would beat by an average of at least 3 or 4 shots in normal stroke play. Match play just psyches me out, and with each passing year my failures only seem to make that worse. I'll have another chance here in a few weeks. We'll see how that goes.....

Competitions are the best. In fact, the Club Championship is pretty much the only reason why I'd ever be interested in joining a club in the first place.

That said, the Austin Men's City Championship is effectively my "club championship," but you're not winning that unless you're a +3 tourney index or better.

The quality of amateur golf in Texas is just insane.

If I join a club again it will be mainly to get back in the thrill of actual competition.  (rather than what I can generate with friends) Stroke play is probably out of the question as (not sure if this is UK only) everywhere I've played someone has delivered a net 63/64 which barring a miracle I'll never do.

Biggest heartbreak of my golfing life is getting to the match-play final when I was 18, after playing my heart out in the quarters and semis, only to basically lose my finger in a warehouse door at work and have to forfeit the final. Luckily they were able to reconstruct my finger with only some minor scarring, but I've never come close since at any club I've been a member of.
