Golf catch all

Surely Gamers with Jobs has a crossover demographic of golfers.

I'm blessed here in Melbourne with easy access to some of the finest courses in the world. We have the Presidents Cup in a month or two.
I love Royal Melbourne - an amazing place to play but there is barely a 3 shot par 5 for me, let alone the best of the pros. But it's matchplay so that shouldn't matter too much.

I'm a solid B Grader shooting 80 something most of the time. Had a chance to shoot even par for 9 holes today for the first time but had 2 par putts touch the hole at the right speed but not drop on the 17th and 18th for 1 over for the back 9.

Even the mediocre tracks are in great nick right now and it's a great time to get out and play.

Oh, hey golf! Well, maybe there isn't much crossover between GWJ and golf, but there's me. I'm a 12 handicap in the US, sounds like a B- or C+ compared to your B Grade, Bruce. Don't know if this will kickstart the discussion but I at least wanted to tip my hat to you.

Since I start the thread I've had my best ever score. 4 over at Sandringham 2 weeks ago including 1 under for the back 9.

Hoping to get to the Aussie Masters this weekend and see Luke Donald. We've had a lot of quality golf in Melbourne this season.

Great round, particularly the way you did it by finishing strong! I forgot that you're in high season for golf down under. Here where I am in the Rocky Mountain West of the US we've had snow on the ground for the last week and a half.

After a few years of game improvement (I broke 80 for the first time four years ago and have done it about a dozen times since), I seem to have hit a wall that has affected my love for the game. I'm planning to take some lessons at the beginning of our golf season, April or thereabouts, to give myself a push.

I also like to follow the pros. Interesting debate here in the states about whether Luke Donald deserves to be viewed as the best player in the world. Holding both the US and European money titles at the same time doesn't seem to be enough to some until he wins a US major. But to my mind he's proven himself to be the best male player on the planet at this moment.

Mate, I am in godzone country for golf. Melbourne is playable all year round although things are starting to warm up a bit as summer progresses, but the La Nina even of the last couple of years has made getting wet during a round an all too frequent occurrence.

Melbourne is particularly blessed with quality golf venues. The Sandbelt and Mornington Peninsula have half a dozen world class courses and and another dozen or so in the tier below that.

If you're ever in town look me up

I'm moving Melbourne a few spots up on the bucket list.

Just to blow my own trumpet here.

I won the amateur section of the Cape Schanck Pro Am yesterday.

Right on right on right on right on!

In other news, nothing but snow here in Denver.
