Day 102 was in many ways, the last day of our puregolf2010 "holiday" where our daily routine of golf was squeezed in amongst spending as much time as possible with the girls. After a morning of sightseeing and lunching at the serene Watson's Bay, we dropped the girls off at the airport, perhaps not to see them again for quite a while. So it was with some sadness that after saying our farewells we moped around the corner to Botany Golf Course to quickly get a round before darkness set in. We teed off at around 4pm but fortunately for us BGC is a 9 hole course. Our third of the sort in the last four days and probably our last for quite a while! The angle for today was that we swapped golf clubs for the day. There wasn't a huge adaptation involved with this as we both use Mizuno irons, but it was still a good way to mix it up. (P.S we're looking for a golf club sponsor after our talks with TaylorMade came to an unfortunate end - so any suggestions please let us know!) Interestingly, it also became a day where our golf games swapped over. For example I watched Jamie smash my 2 iron 20m past me off the tee, and he watched me sink a few putts with his blade putter. It is fair to say he had about as much joy with my putter as I had in January, eg None. Admittedly there was a fair amount of chance involved on the greens as they had seen better days, and it wouldn't be a bad business decision for the club to bundle a pitch repairer up as part of the green-fee. Today I thought I had made my first hole-in-one on the 6th hole, but my eyes had deceived me. Even when I was optimistic I wasn't that excited as I thought to myself it wouldn't have been the best way to get my first hole in one - on a 90m hole whilst rushing around to get in before dark. But I wouldn't have complained. We frequently get asked whether we have had a hole in one, and unfortunately JP and I are still both on the duck. So we got through the round before darkness set in and meandered back to Randwick. Today was a first for me in that I hit 100% of fairways, which is definitely a first. Maybe I should stick to Jamie's clubs.. On the stats note, I have just been informed by our stats-man-on-the-ground AKA - William Corke, that we are not too far away from having our stats streaming through on the site (link above) - so Stay Tuned.
