Narrative:
The pilot reported that there had been some nose wheel vibration, described as slight, during the takeoff and that the aircraft had wanted to yaw away from the centreline. He had been able to regain the centreline with the use of moderate rudder input. Otherwise the takeoff was reported as normal. During the landing roll, following the completion of a solo navigation exercise, the nose of the aircraft descended further than expected when the pilot attempted to lower the nose wheel onto the runway. He opened the throttle to complete a go-round however, the propeller began striking the runway before this could be completed. The go-around was abandoned and the aircraft brought to a stop on the grass to the left of the flight strip.
