Anyone else get one?
Just for perspective, if you practiced 40 hours a week (equal to full time employment) you would have 2080 a year, so 10,000 hours = 4.8 years and 15,000 = 7.2 years. Mind you this rule of thumb is on "deliberate practice" which means a round of golf would not count. That would be a large amount of practice for a school age child.In my opinion, aside from work ethic, you have to have raw talent to be a pro, in any sport.

I second May 4th, my son will be 6 months old so I should be able to get a hall pass.Black Gold is a great course, and fairly long at 6,700 / 133 from the tips.http://www.greenskeeper.org/southern_california/orange_county/Black_Gold_Golf_Club/scorecard.cfmBrad
Since I don't play tourney's very much, with the stableford system, who generally has the best chance of winning, high or low handicap players?From what I read in the postings, I belive all 4 group 1 members estimated their HC. From an analytical perspective it looks like the HCs were estimated on the low side given the score results, but don't know for sure.I would guess the course slope would impact this too, but I think that gets figured out when calculating the couse...
I can only report on how the rounds felt in comparision to each other and today's round felt much better. There was far less scrambling and the 3 bad holes can be contibuted to 2 course management errors and one pitch off the hosel. I not sure I'm out to make the guys happy, I would expect the putts to increase when going for the center of the green vs. not and chipping it close.I do appreciate the comments.Brad
Fair enough, I'll keep this in mind next time.I do think the results show a positive improvement as I went from 1 par to 4 and from 0% GIR to 33% GIR. All the GIR's were on Par 4 or 5s.But I get what you are saying.Brad
Not sure if you are looking for unofficial feedback, but I will provide it anway. Shot two 9-hole rounds this week, one prior to reading this thread and one after. The second round I decided to go for the middle of the green on any shot outside of 80 yards (I'm a 16HC). Here are the results: Round 1 Score: 47 (1 par) FIR: 43% GIR: 0% Scramble: 11.1% Putt Avg: 1.8 3 Putts: 0 Par 3 Avg: 5 Par 4 Avg: 4.8 Par 5 Avg: 6.5 Round 2 Score: 47 (4 pars) FIR: 57% GIR:...
Cool pictures and videos! I'll be there on Sunday with my father in law, look for me on the TV, I'll be the one in the golf hat, shirt and shorts. Brad
Just my opinion, but if you can't translate it to the course then it doesn't matter how good you are on the range. I think many people play by the rule that if a Par 4 is under 400 yrds then you would be better off not hitting driver. From your description, a 280 drive leaves you 50 yards making the hole a 330 yd par 4.Next time you play the hole, if you are able, play 3 balls, one driver, one hybrid and one 5i. See which one results in a GIR, if they all do, which one...
