Another day another round of golf! Today‚??s course was Manor Park in the Hutt Valley north of Wellington. The weather threatened to turn foul, but it has come out a cracker now and it is a pristine evening in the city.
Our golf started a wee bit sluggishly today. Without playing partners or much of a warm up we both took a few holes to get going. But then we came right and ended up with scores of 80(m) and 81(j). So Jim is now officially on his first losing streak of the year ‚?? and I am enjoying the boot being on the other foot!
Manor Park golf course was definitely set up in my favour in a match against Jamie.¬† For those unaware, Jim has something of a ‚??strong draw‚?Ě and a large number of holes had out of bounds along the left side, and trees overhanging on the right. Not ideal for JP.¬† That said, we both hit the ball relatively well today and our downfall was with our short games. Nothing new for me and a number of three putts (again) dulled any hopes of a low score.
Manor Park was in good nick, and our uninspiring putting was in no means due to their greens, which were top class. The course generally was very green and prepared to a standard to be expected of a private members course. Looking at the new clubhouse, the standard of the course and the ambitious course development plan ‚?? it appears to be a well run and successful club. Without a doubt one of the best in the region.
Anyway ‚?? we have decided as at today, that each day the loser of the weeks matches will have a punishment. Consequences are key. This is where you guys come in ‚?? so we want suggestions below as to what the loser must do. The weeks will finish on Friday - we are currently 3/3 for this week so tomorrow now takes on a greater meaning. The punishment for this week is that tomorrow, whoever comes in second place is not allowed to wear any shoes whatsoever from the completion of the round until the next round on Saturday morning begins‚?¶¬†
Looking forward to our last day in Welly tomorrow before the adventure south begins. For those CHCH based, we would love to see you at our launch on Monday at Terrace Downs, and are also looking for playing partners on Tuesday at the new Pegasus Town golf course.
