Was playing really well at -8 thru 14 holes then Hb said less of that Gav and gave me a very slow downswing on the par 3 15th leaving me in some lovely thick bushes ... Double bogey ... Birdied 17 then had a complete brain fart on 18 off the tee but should have parred it still but slagged my putt over the hole like a dickhead. So -6 to start but that's still 2 shots better than smiffy and trowel so not distraught 😂😂

In 1996, I won through a few rounds of a national winter stableford competition with the grand final over 36 holes at San Roque and Valderrama. The night before playing Valderrama, a few of us went out in Puerto Banus, sadly myself and one other stayed out til 6.30 am. The bus taking us to the course was leaving the hotel at 8.30am, needless to say we missed the bus and had to get a staff member to take us to the course. I have NEVER felt so rough on a first tee, as I did at Valderrama that morning. The round was awful, but the greens were the best I have ever played on, like putting on glass!
This recreation is amazing and it honestly felt like I was back there, re-living the absolute garbage I played that day.
LEVEL PAR first round, which is an extremely healthy improvement on my real life effort!

A week of Didnt's for me
Didn't drive well, Didn't approach well, Didn't read the greens or putt well, Didn't have a bogey free rd until rd4, Didn't want a gold, silver or bronze medal, Didn't like to the course, Didn't want gavlaar124 to lose confidence so let him win , Didn't like losing to TROWELHEAD, but apart from all that i played well
-4, E, -3, -8 = (-15)
Well played all those who have finished and good luck to those yet to start/finish play well
-23. Three putted from 6 feet on the 2nd in Rd 1. 2 inch downhill, missed the 17 footer coming back. Couldn't read these greens to save my life. Anything over 5 feet was a hit and hope....just couldn't see the breaks well enough. I think 12 footer was my best. Tempo issues all this afternoon (also on PGA)....mainly fast downswings out of nowhere. Have fun all.

I played a practise round and was like oh - this is going to be a struggle. My only mistake was on #6 where I thought I was delofting an 8i but it was a 7i and made a bogey. Other than that I think I was within 10ft butting for birdies on every hole with the exception of #18 which was on the fringe. I think the longest putt I made was 9ft. Happy with my start.
