Went to The Green Minigolf today, my second day of practice in the run up to the British Championship my first minigolf major. Unlike yesterday The Green was deserted, so was able to get some meaningful rounds in. Decided to play a very serious mock British Championship with The Rocket. Despite me trying my best, there was little I could do but watch and admire as The Rocket took me and the course to pieces, scoring an impressive -27 total.
The Rocket Clockwork Orange
Very Long Break
27 under 13 under
Our 3rd and 5th rounds were heavily affected by G-Man and Crazy Lady respectively, causing us both to lose concentration and shoot higher than we should have.
TR hit 10 shots better than me on hole 6.
I was 4 shots better than him on hole 5.
I aced hole 2 in 5/7 rounds.
TR aced hole 1 5/7.
I had 2 aces on hole 13 TR had 1.
TR got through hole 9 first time 7/7 me 5/7.
I got through hole 14 7/7 it missed twice. TR didn’t get up in his final round of 28 having aced it the previous 6 times.
The least amount of shots we managed to drop in any round was 2, the number we both dropped in the first round.
After 4 rounds I was at -10 (The winning score in The Green Open) and TR was at -20.
The course was playing very difficult with holes 12 and 17 refusing to drop. Hole 7 is now nearly impossible to ace unless you get a large slice of luck.
I have plenty more stats but I cannot be bothered to write 95% of the time.
*Not in any way funny this blog. But as a professional minigolfer on the British tour I thought it was quite interesting (as in only interesting for me and TR).
N.B All good minigolfers have to have nicknames which is why I have referred to myself and J**** as such.
