Sunday 26th June 2011 to Saturday 2nd July 2011

Saturday 2nd July 2011
Got up dead early. Watered the spud field. Went up town got Phil's provisional license application form and did that with him. Went played the medal at the golf club off the yellow tees and came back with a respectable 86 for a nett 68. Which was more than acceptable after the rubbish I did at Wentworth!!

Some Pics from Wentworth Wed 29th June 2011

First Tee

Every hole is treelined - See gps tracked image from Wednesdays' post.

Colleague Mike stalking the green like a tiger (without the spitting obviously - note car in background - three or four places where cars cross fairways).

How pretty is this course?

Very briefly (I'd imagine) I was holder of longest drive - only on account of being the only one to hit the fairway up to that point!!!

Mike takes a shot over the drink which he found on his first approach.

Friday 1st July 2011
Absolutely cream crackered this morning. Walked/ran up town and back very slow but got back in time to water the spud field and what have you so all good there. Details

Thursday 30th June 2011
Tired - unloaded car, watered the spud field and then up town and back for a run and pick up the papers. Sub 10 minute miles was sort of impressive considering tiredness!! Details Badminton in the evening - somewhat rusty to start off with but played okay later. All good.

Wednesday 29th June 2011
20th Wedding Anniversary and I should be at home however, I'm at Wentworth on a freebie golf day in the most expensive (possibly) golf resort in the UK - £300 odd quid a round for the championship West Course, home of World Matchplay and the PGA events. So not in the best of books regarding that but such is life. Anyway it was a nice 8 mile plus walk with some poor golf thrown in. Managed to par the last with an audience playing an 8-iron over the water to about 6 feet from the hole. Details

Tuesday 28th June 2011
Am now officially panicing about golf has gone really bad. Have put two sets of clubs in car just in case! Might try both sets out at Wentworth. Anyway went up golf course at 5:30 and probably hit it just about as bad as I ever have. Such is life. Details. When got back I regripped the driver as the Karakal one seemed to be coming to pieces - think something to do with the solvent used to activate the adhesive but anyway it's replaced now.

Monday 27th June 2011
Bit of a run to start the week - very knackered. Details Went and did some more cak golf. Details

Sunday 26th June 2011
Walk up golf course, found a couple of balls had a few hits with the NVG2s. Was Ok need to decide what I'm going to be playing with at Wentworth on Wednesday. Details

Sunday 19th June 2011 to Saturday 25th June 2011

Saturday 25th June 2011
No more golf today! Missus gone shopping. Anyway had a walk up the golf course with the old LCGs and it was okay. Details

Friday 24th June 2011
More and more golf!! Went to Bakewell GC as part of a Groupon deal. Me, Dave, John and Doug played 18 holes for £36 and also got a coffee and enormous sausage sambo on arrival. Everyone well pleased and weather stayed dry as well. Can't ask more than that! Ended up taking the money after scoring 35 points - only problem was I can't play the second, for some reason I keep blind-siding myself on the left of the fairway and then bashing the ball into the trees on that side - stupid! anyway - Details

Thursday 23rd June 2011
Absolutely cream crackered this morning hence a very slow run indeed. 11.27 miles which is not good but I'd got nothing in the tank and that's what happens! Details Went to Badminton after work and really enjoyed it, then... went up golf course for nine holes which did in 6-over with a double on 15th after finding bunker and then hitting out of the bunker over the green. More details

Wednesday 22nd June 2011
Watch fully charged - run up town and back. Steady. Details Drains all sorted everyone's happy again.

Tuesday 21st June 2011
Tired, watch out of battery. Ran up town and back all okay but no details!! Bloody drains blocked when got home at 7:30 - marvellous.

Monday 20th June 2011
Tired, tired, tired, stopped up listening to radio 5's coverage of Rory Mcllroy winning the US Open good on the wee fella says I. Anyroad walked up town and ran back. Details. Went for a walk up golf course and got severely rained - found a load of balls though so not all bad.

Sunday 19th June 2011 - Father's Day
Got a cheeky card and a Kindle which is what I wanted! Am going to Nag's Head for lunch which is always nice. Did a few holes of golf in the evening which was nice! Details

Sunday 12th June 2011 to Saturday 18th June 2011

Saturday 18th June 2011
Tired as usual not getting over the hols and Journey very quickly but hey-ho am not as young as I used to be, just like you! Anyway got 14 holes of golf in - as there was no comp on we jumped from the 9th tee to the 13th tee and played to the end that way. For the first nine holes I was 6 over which was okay all things considered - I've been told I'm swaying during my swing so am bracing the back foot a bit more to reduce this and it worked real good - details.

Friday 17th June 2011
Tired, tired, tired, walked up town and then ran back. Details

Thursday 16th June 2011
Couldn't get out of bed, absolutely knackered again need to get some proper sleep as didn't get none in merseyside due to road traffic noise at hotel. Never sleep well in hotels. Had a good badminton session with Lucy though so not a complete blank exercise day. Lost 1.5lb this week as well after putting three on during holiday.

Wednesday 15th June 2011
Visited the Mossley Hill group last night and it was very good indeed apart from a Brazilian Samba drum band thing rehearsing two doors up - talk about noisy. Visited a group in Speke before driving home absolutely knackered when got back at 11:30. Stuff

Tuesday 14th June 2011
Been doing a load of getting ready for a trip to Merseyside for two group visits. Quick run up town and back. V tired due to being up til late watching Lethal Weapon last night which was very good, so a slow time up town and back. Details
Am working in Merseyside for next couple of days so no posts til Thursday.

Monday 13th June 2011
Run up town and back steady considering. Details

Did a few holes on the golf course around 7pm. Started on 6th with a par, 7th a bogey, 8th a par, 9th a bogey, 10th a bogey, 11th a double, 12th a bogey, 13th a bogey, 14th a par, 1st a bogey, 2nd a par, 3rd a bogey, 4th a bogey, 5th a double, So 11 over for 13 holes is technically better than handicap – I should have done better really as was striking the ball pretty nicely in the main just some more putting – first putt went off the green on the 13th for example. Never mind greens are nice and quick and have a round at Wentworth on the cards for the end of the month which will be good. Details :

Sunday 12th June 2011
Knackered when woke up at 9am. Took some stuff to recycling then it started to rain and didn't stop. We need it though so not going to complain.

Saturday 30th May 2011 to Saturday 4th June 2011

Was on Hols in Wales

Lots of walking, lots of fishing, lots of drinking. Went to a lot of nice new places.

Fishing at Freshwater Bay - Wed 1st June 2011

Beautiful spot - in distance you can see people on a rocky platform - they climbed down steps to get their - we're going to give it a go next time.

Cwymran Bay / RAF Valley
We fished here twice once at low tide (and the tide is seriously strong - be warned) and once from about an hour after high. Just a single wrasse for our efforts but both times were in daylight - next time may go for it at night time.
