I always KEEP score, but not always ENTER score
Here in Netherlands you declare before you start your round if this round will be a qualifying round. I usually play a qualifying round except when I mix things up like playing from front tees or other formats or whatever
I would say no, I know a lot of people that do this and tbh I think it's bs.
If you have something that you are not good at, work on it. It's not that hard.
All I see is people losing even more confidence in their swing
Although I guess it's a strategy, I do not really agree with it since hitting you're driver better in the end will be a better strategy.
having two OB and your swing on camera makes it look like you can't really be consistent. However shooting 82 despite all that makes it sound you have a very strong game. If you really can make it work for you like that congrats.
Although everybody can benefit from some lessons so I guess you would too. You might lose some distance though :)
Amazing thread hehe good luck
