I'll kick this one off....

 

1st point of interest: There are only 2 players in my Expert League with a -12 qualifier !

Kyle.. you only said -12 is a great score ;)

You need to get that extra eagle from Par4s if not from hole 3.

Was that in Expert ?  How many others better than -11 ?

That would suggest that -23 could be good enough for top 5 come Saturday ? interesting. Gonna be a lot of -22's though I reckon. You'll need a good 'tie-breaker' to make top 10 with a mistake free round.

 

on Hole 3: I only got a 9.0 mph wind today compared to a 10.1 mph last time, (with Snowman = wind resistance II). that would have meant only 10.2 mph with a Berserker which I'm not sure'd be enough.

You deffo' need to get lucky with the wind to make it in Expert.

Played absolutely awful and hope I qualify.  After a -11 in Expert last round, I scored a -19.  3 eagles and 2 pars.  Couple people at -22 on top so far.

Great back 9 with -12. Disaster in front 9 with only -9. Ended up -21.

Eagle shot went through the the 'C' both times in hole 3. 2 Pars. Need to up my ante on Saturday.

 

Suggestion needed : Would I be better off playing back 9 and front 9 separately on different times. I tend to falter on front 9 if play simultaneously.

I'm very concerned, I was -9 in my qualifier and my practice this week has been horrid.

Ahhh missed the fairway by a foot on hole 3. Only 13.5 mph tailwind, a bit unlucky.

Horrible expert opening round.  Started hole 1 with a HIO. I thought this was my lucky day, finally... steep downhill from there... -18.

This is taking forever. All replays. Had a brutal 15 mph crosswind on hole #5.

Thanks Kyle. Amazing thing is that it is not full pull yet.
