Tournament today. 78, second place by one. Blue tees. Guy drained a 10 footer for par on the last hole. Oh well, I did win some skin money with three straight birdies.
Question for the OP. Is Distance Really That Important for Amateurs?
What would your score difference be playing from the tees at 5000 yds vs the tees from 6000 yds?
Would you score better on a 250 yd Par 4 than a 400 yd Par 4?
Why are slope rating and course ratings higher from the longer distance?
Seems pretty simple to me. You score better on the shorter holes because your approach shots are not as far. You have the same short game skills at both...
Adding a very short Vlog, if you want to even call it that, from our golf league tonight. One tee shot, one approach shot. Just wanting to check the elbow.
17th hole Par 4 384yds.
Second shot from 121yds GW. Couldn't film anymore as there were threatening skies closing in fast.
Ended up shooting even on the back tonight. My lowest score on this nine all year. 7 fairways/6 GIR.
The 3/4 backswing was my swing key thought for the night.
