My story

[p]My challenge is to score below 5 on 100 golf holes in April. Ordinarily I'd be confident of achieving this but after 3 months of lockdown layoff my game is rusty to say the least! Anyway, I'm aiming to complete 10 rounds of 18 holes from 31st March (yes, I know it's still March but it's the only way to get 10 done by April 30th!). This will be mainly over my home course of Church Stretton with all scores verified by playing partners so no hiding place for me! [/p][p]STOP PRESS!: Off to a flying start: Golf in yesterday's glorious sunshine (31st March) included 13 scores below 5, nicely ahead of the 10 per round average required to hit the magic 100 in April. Happy Days![/p][p]WEEKLY UPDATE, SUNDAY 11th: Now completed 4 rounds and I'm on 43 holes below 5, so just ahead of the magic 10 per round that will hit that 100 April total. We even had snow showers today![/p][p]UPDATE WED 21st: 5 rounds done so half way, 54 holes below 5 so still just ahead of target. It might get a bit nervy by round 10![/p][p]UPDATE MON 26th: 7 rounds now done, but poorer form on latest 2 means I've now dropped to just below 10 average at 69 below 5[/p][p]FINAL DAY, 30th: Bear with me please!!!! Wednesday's washed out round meant I'll have to wait until this Sunday to complete a 10th Round, but currently on 95 holes below 5 so it just has to be 100+![/p][p]DONE IT.......106 HOLES BELOW 5 !!!! Final (10th) round on Sunday 2nd, irony being it was on hole no. 5 that I hit the magic 100! Many thanks to all for your support.[/p]
