Posted one score and I went from an 12.2 to an 11.7. Oops.   Our handicap season actually ends on 11/15 (although it might be 10/31), so I won't have much change for a while. So far, I have two rounds scheduled before then, but I'm guessing I'll get in 5-ish rounds before the season is over.
What course is state at?
Why are we so consistently bad at alternate shot?
My average drive is around 270. I hit one about 350 once. It was a really, really downhill 450 yard par 4. I caught the slope just right and ended up on a shelf 100 yards from the green. The wind was actually against me on that day, so I wonder what I could do on that hole if the wind was at my back.   I also hit a 3 wood 294 off the tee this weekend. Wind at my back, nice little draw, and a nice forward bounce when it landed.
 Is Valor Christian in your regional? I know the golf coach at Evergreen, which is in 4A, and he was telling me how Valor has 4 golfers who could all shoot in the 60s on a given day. That would be fun to watch.
I don't think they make a difference in my score. I struggle with long putts anyways, so I don't think the bumpiness really makes much difference. In fact, in competition, I somewhat look forward to aerated greens. I know other people are really bothered by aeration, and it doesn't bug me. Advantage - me.   Case in point - I played a course that had aerated its greens last weekend, and then a course with normal greens the day after. I shot a +11 with 34 putts on the...
We have a Ryder Cup tournament this weekend for my men's club. I'm pretty excited for it. There are going to be 2 teams of 16 players each. We're playing 27 holes, 9 alternate shot, 9 fourball, 9 individual match play. The nine set up pretty well for me. The nine that is most dangerous for me is fourball. My best nine is the individual match play. There's only one scary shot on the nine with the alternate shot.   We're having the draft on Friday night to select teams....
Bleh, went from 11.8 to 12.2. I don't think I've been happy with my play since late June.
Obviously, hindsight is 20/20, but man it would be nice to have Billy on the Ryder Cup team. He's so hot, and he has that type of killer attitude that I think would be great in the Ryder Cup. His attitude could back fire on him, but I'd much rather have that fire over Furyk's ho hum attitude, for example.
 So his tournament average is less than stroke below his handicap? I'd say no based on that. And isn't there a threshold based on that difference where GHIN will flag it for the committee to adjust? I'm guessing it's not in that threshold, so not a sandbagger. Even if he is a sandbagger, he's not very good at it.
