Felt great to get back on the range and grind out a bit of practice last night, • Usually I’m a fan of having the range to myself, but it was so good to see so many other people there, especially parents getting their kids involved! I’ve never seen it so busy! • It’s safe to say that I was still one of the last ones there at the end though

That feeling when you’ve made golf plans for the weekend and the weather looks perfect for it!

Playing last weekend really made me appreciate how important a decent short game is! • I hit 2 greens in regulation, but walked off the 18th having made 5 pars and a birdie (we won’t mention the double bogeys though) • Being able to put it within an easy 1 putt range made such a difference, even if I was missing greens!
Awesome to finally get a break in the weather to get back out on the course at @churstongolfclub • It felt like a long time since I played last, luckily I didn’t play too horrendously!

Generally speaking bunkers don’t worry me, but having played mostly links golf recently, I have found a new meaning of a “bunker” • I’m not exactly short...so when I can’t see over the top, that’s when I start to realise I may have a bit of trouble!

I miss being out on the course when the skies were blue and a polo shirt is all that was needed! #throwback
Three things to learn from this photo: • a bobble hat is an essential for winter golf; • grey trousers in the rain are a bad idea; and • the green-side bunkers at @burnhamandberrow are pretty unforgiving!

Gave my clubs a clean as I didn’t get to use them this weekend, I love having a clean set of bats in the bag! • It did make me realise how light my bag is - the big stick will go back in, but is anyone else well short of the club limit?
Give me a straight, wide fairway (a rarity, I’ll admit) and a bit of sun and I’ll be a happy man!

I love a par 3 and this little one on the Channel course at @burnhamandberrow is definitely up there with my favourites! • Before I went out, I was told it’s their version of the Postage Stamp, and I can totally see why - 115(ish) yards to a tiny raised green that slopes off in pretty much every direction and surrounded by pot bunkers...it was awesome! (But challenging) • The whole course was just brilliant!
I really miss being able to fit in 9 holes after work and before the sun went down! • Cold and dark evenings are definitely not made for golf - so how do you motivate yourself to get out and practice (if you do at all!)?

Chipping (or doing anything else) from tight lies has never been something that comes easily to me, so the last couple of weeks playing links golf has been interesting! • After playing with @smithyheregolf at Dawlish, he opened my eyes to putting from way off the green and having tried it at @burnhamandberrow I can say that I’m a changed man! • Putting is the way forward (literally)
It was a real shame that we got caught out by the weather on Saturday at @burnhamandberrow • The championship course was still brilliant, unfortunately the views over the bay were engulfed by some awesomely mean looking clouds! • The course held up incredibly well in the conditions (more than I can say for my camera) - a great day still!
Absolutely awesome day playing at @burnhamandberrow yesterday • I was hugely impressed by both courses, but particularly their 9 hole “Channel” course - it‘s a proper hidden gem in my opinion! • Can’t wait to go back a play again, hopefully avoiding the rain next time!

Trying to pick up some tips on the art of the “Texas wedge” from @smithyheregolf at Dawlish last weekend • Hoping it might come in handy for playing at @burnhamandberrow
#throwback to finally getting to play at @woodbury_park over the summer - the course definitely didn’t disappoint!

Massively looking forward to this weekend and getting to play both courses at @burnhamandberrow • The courses are looking impeccable and the weather looks like it’ll be beaut - should be an awesome day!
