Having joined Pleasington Golf course recently I have had the chance to get my very first golf handicap. And, today it came through and I am playing off 17!
After having my first golf lessons and they going out of the course for a number of rounds, it was inevitable that there would be one area (more than others) that I was going to need help with. That area is without doubt off the tee with the driver. Therefore I have set about trying to be more consistent, and this is what I am doing.
Last year I attended the Women’s British Open here and had a great time. Therefore we I found out that more professional golf was being played this year I wanted to come along.
We were really lucky with the weather as the day we attended (Thursday – day 1) the weather was fabulous sunshine and warm.
If you have never been to watch a golf tournament before then I would highly recommend the women’s events. The players are brilliant and the crowds not quite as busy as for the men’s event.
In fact whether you like golf or not, you will still have a great day out, particularly if the weather is nice as it was today.
The course a lot smaller than I remember it, but I guess that was because, back then I was a lot smaller than I am now! We (I played with my father) at the first and both hit really good first shots nice a straight. I would love to say to the golf got better from there but, for me at least it was not particularly impressive.
If you want to read all about my running this year and meeting my goals then I have already written about this when I achieved my revised target of 814 miles from Land’s End to John O’Groats. This post is going to concentrate on the new achievement of pushing on to 1000 miles.
After reaching my revised target, I ended November needing to run 150 miles. In the back of my mind I had it that I would really like to run 1000 miles in a year.
After talk of going to play an actual round of golf at some point over the summer holidays, I thought I better head back to the golf range to see if I could still hit the ball.
I wasn’t that bad actually although a little to inconsistent. Perhaps a few more visits are in order.
