Playing with professionals

Recently I’ve been spending a lot of time on course playing with many tour professionals who live locally.
We have been playing a lot of competitive rounds, gathering 8-12 good players and seeing who can shoot the lowest scores consistently.
It is the best way to prepare each other for the upcoming events!!

I think my game has already improved drastically just by doing these rounds with them!!
We’re doing these games once or twice a week, so hopefully my game keeps improving at this steady rate!!

New friend!

Made a new friend at the golf course today!!
I was practicing my short game and this little guy decided to land on my finger and stay there for about 5 minutes…
I think he brought me luck because when I went and played on course afterwards, I had a slam dunk eagle from 80 yards!!

Sort of hoping he would come back when I’m playing a tournament…

Mini pineapple…..

Over the years we’ve been growing pineapples at our house, but this has got to be the smallest “full grown” one I’ve seen!!
It was ripe and tasted really sweet as well…but I’m not too sure what happened to its size….

ncoming Storms…

Recently the weather here on the Gold Coast has cooled off a bit, with the peak Summer heat coming to an end.
However…the bad news is that the storm season has arrived…
Usually it is around January but this year it looks like it came a little late.
From Monday onwards theres storms predicted everyday!!

Time to get my wet weather gear back out again!!

Fishing!!!

Since the golf course was closed today for renovations (coring), I decided to do a bit of fishing with the new rod I bought in December!
It seems that luck was on my side as I caught 4 small Bream and 2 long toms/garfish (picture below)!!
I have been fishing before but this is the biggest catch for me to date!
It was approximately 70-80cms and fought pretty hard as well.

Taking the hook out was so dangerous as it kept snapping its razor sharp teeth…

Definitely a successful day fishing!!
