Yes. Be mindful of where your playing partners are putting from and make an effort to avoid walking on their line. Not uncommon for somebody to just say ďstand easyĒ or generally tell you not to worry about where you stand while you putt, but if you make no effort at all to be mindful then youíll piss people off.

Re: What'd You Shoot Today? (Golf BBV Thread)

9 holes yesterday on par 34 course. Scored an honest 47 while incorporating a new swing change. Was playing with 5 wood, 5 6 7 9 irons, pitching wedge, 54 wedge, sand wedge and a putter. Lost my 8 iron on the course a week and a half ago but they said nobody turned it in at the clubhouse. Also I snapped my driver shaft at the range on Saturday, which made the 500+ yard Par 5 play a bit longer. Didn’t lose a ball until the approach over the river on 9. I caught the branch that hangs over the river protecting the right side of the green and my ball disappeared into the water below.

I wouldn’t call it a new swing since the change is literally a movement of about one inch with my left wrist at the top of the backswing, but the slight change is making a big difference In how the club face reacts on the downswing. Thus I can’t really be disappointed with the score. I did hit some shots that flew as I intended. There was only one severe miss hit when I pulled my head up very early, which caused me to hit the ground well behind the ball. I might start writing a head down reminder on my ball. Lol.

any 2+2ers members at canyon gate? I just moved to the HOA and joined the club. I am a 7 handicap that drives the ball like a 20 and does the other stuff reasonably. **** talking and ball busting is preferable

Re: What'd You Shoot Today? (Golf BBV Thread)

Played Saturday and shot 86, just a complete shitshow. Then Sunday I played the tips on a tough course (75.5/144 7676 yds) and had a 74. Makes complete sense.

Re: What\'d You Shoot Today? (Golf BBV Thread)

47-39-86 +14

Strange round. Triple bogeyed 2 of the first 4 holes including a shank on 1 and a topped drive on 4. Was 8-over after 4 holes.

Managed to pull it together and was actually even par on the back, until another triple on 17. Obviously need to eliminate the blowup holes, was 9-over on 3 holes and 5-over on the other 15.

Re: What'd You Shoot Today? (Golf BBV Thread)

Scoring question.

For handicap purposes do you cap your score per hole at a certain numbers?

I'm not good (but feel like I'm making improvements!) so like a 105 is a good score for me. Goal is to break 100 this summer.

I've always capped my score per hole at double par. I played with a buddy yesterday and we got to talking about handicaps and he says for handicap purposes you should cap your score at triple bogey. His reasoning was it gives you a more accurate handicap if you're ever getting out and want to play competitively with people who are better than you and double par gives you a "false" handicap and makes it almost impossible to lose to someone with a low handicap. Thoughts?

Yes, it's called Equitable Stroke Control. Under the new handicap system the max you can take on a hole (for handicap purposes) is net double bogey.

Not a member but I have played there several times. Course conditions seem to be very hit and miss. I really like the course.

LOL.
it appears the door may still be a bit ajar.

i appreciate your ability to take the good humored ribbing. it's been fun to see your progress and there's only so much a guy on the west coast can do to try to motivate a guy on the east coast.

Re: What'd You Shoot Today? (Golf BBV Thread)

Re: What\'d You Shoot Today? (Golf BBV Thread)

Just woke up from a post-round nap. 6:52 am tee time was way too early.

39-39 for a 78 (+6)

Course was longer than the 6250 on the card due to days of rain. Greens were soggy and variable for the first 8-10 holes.

1 birdie
No Doubles

4 Fairways
9 Greens (+ a few on the fringe)
32 Putts (3-jacked the 1st)

Re: What\'d You Shoot Today? (Golf BBV Thread)

Shot 40. One birdie. Hit 3 greens and 3 fairways. Terrible round. Only my 3rd round in the last 6 months.

They donít take cash because of the Coronavirus. Ridiculous. Like credit cards are safe.

I actually think it is illegal not to accept cash at a public facility. Smacks of discrimination. Not everyone has a credit card.

Playing tomorrow with two pros. Hopefully things will improve.

Re: What'd You Shoot Today? (Golf BBV Thread)

decent round Precept. curious if you putted any of those approaches that were on the fringe and if you count those as putts.

which, i suppose, is a question for the larger group of folks that track their own stats. if you aren't technically on the putting surface but still use a putter, do you count it as a putt?

Re: What\'d You Shoot Today? (Golf BBV Thread)

I did not count the fringe shots as putts. I also didn't count them as greens.

I had 75 yards in on 3 separate occasions today. Two slightly uphill, one a little downhill. Chunked the uphillers and hit the downhill one to about 15 feet behind the hole.

Interesting!

Thatís why total putts can be somewhat misleading.

Total length of putts made may be a slightly better stat.

Re: What\'d You Shoot Today? (Golf BBV Thread)

I did not count the fringe shots as putts. I also didn't count them as greens. I used the putter from the fringe (about 5 feet of approach twice) plus a 4-wood from a tight lie near the collar and only about 15 feet from the hole. Haven't tried that in years. Zipped it 8-10 feet past the hole, but made the putt.

Totally true. I'll see if I can figure that out. Won't be much since I made a couple of 8-footers at most. Lots of 4-footers.


About 30-feet of putts on the front.
About 25 on the back for 55-feet of made putts.

Re: What'd You Shoot Today? (Golf BBV Thread)

for the record i don't count the fringe as GIR or as a putt if that's the club i choose to use. i was just curious how other folks consider it.

as for the that tight collar lie where you used the 4w, sometimes a hybrid does the trick, but i wouldn't be surprised if you aren't carrying a hybrid if you have a 4w in the bag.

I've always counted my fringes as GIR; and I putt those 99+% of the time
