I sucked the donkeys balls so hard I ripped them right out of the sack, into my throat and wound up choking on them and had to call 911. How is it possible that I did worse on this course than Bedes.(especially considering I played one round a day ago, speed golfed it, not using scout cam or anything and shot -7 or 8 don't remember. Never bothered to practice this course at all)
911: "whats your emergency?"
Me: "I sucked the donkeys balls so hard I am now choking on them"
911: "sir, this number is for real emergencies only. You can be charged for placing prank calls to the 911 system." Hangs up on me
Thank God my neighbor heard me choking and came over and performed the Heimlich maneuver.

Alright, I'm back where I started last year. The pleasant and sunny climes of CC-B.
In TGC2, I somehow managed to climb up to the Euro Tour, but as a master club mouse swinger that severely struggled with the new game and therefore refused to practice, I'm very bad at the moment when it comes to yardage estimation (as I elaborated already in the mouse swinger thread).
That being said, I'm currently halfway through this week's event. With one bogey on the sloped par 3 (hole 15), I'm at -11, which should be right in the middle of nowhere on the leaderboard. Since my approach game has some major flaws, I'm mostly taking 1 putt pars after missing the green or 2 putt pars after hitting the wrong side of the green. This obviously depends on the size of the green as well.
Since I'm not overly ambitious, I'm already happy if I can repeat that score of -11 for the second half and stay here for a while. I surely hope the forum is fun to read, though I'm not worried after what I've read so far.
After two years out I'm back on the tours this year and really looking forward to a little competition and discovering some great courses along the way.
Used to be a Euro player back in the day but not quite got the time to devote to it as before. The aim is to get back to the euro over eventually but I really struggle to shoot with consistency in the new game hence winding up in CC so who knows what will happen.
Practiced the course a couple of days ago and shot -6 in low winds so not feeling massively confident. Just need to get my swing sorted out and I'll be away though, am basically trusting it'll click if I keep playing. The introduction of tempo has really changed the game though, for thw better imo but fair play to those that have cracked it, a lot harder now.

Finished last season on CC-D and have played much better this edition to where i can even hit Masters and tried to qualify for the Web. A couple big mental errors cost me and i made CC-B. Figured i would need to play Pro clubs to have a shot and shot ok but not great with them. Finished -19 and left a lot on the greens...the slopes on these greens around the hole were a lot more severe than i was reading. I think i had missed about 6-7 birdies under 15 feet. Though I was pretty bummed to miss the pro tours and wasn't as dialed in on this.
I also think i might be better with the Masters clubs. Went to the WEB society and started to play in the tournament (looks like you can they just don't put you in the actual tourney) and shot -11, -6 first two rounds using Masters. Would put me in top 10 there at the moment. Damn now i really want to get moving up but it seems it will be a long road.
This is my first season in TGC Tours. I have a suspicion I overperformed in Q-School, so I'm expecting this tour to be tough! Started with a solid -5, but struggled with the wind and tempo in round 2 and could only go round in par.
