Congrats. My best for 9 holes so far is 41. Hopefully I can beat that tomorrow. Don't know, though. I didn't play today 'cause I had to wait for the snow to melt. XD

Oh snap your right. I was drunk when I posted that SC we had to walk off after 8 because it got dark so fast. I guess its less good than I thought. Was still good enough for me to be happy though lol.

BTW Chineese food bars after golf always leave me destroyed for the rest of the night. Zombies taste like red popsicles but have a bunch of 151 in emm uggh lol.

It wasn't a great score but my last round of the year was at Pine Valley Golf Club in New Jersey. Can't think of a better way to end a great golf year!

It gets dark by like 4 I work parttime and go to school full time. Whats a man to do?

Also all the greens are winterized and yucky to put on which makes it a Ball striking contest because once you get to the green its like a guessing game. @ValleyGolf Hmmm... Saturday morning could be a good chance to get out there actually! I dont mind the cold just the wind/rain if its calm out ill be out there!

Just got done myself and it was low 50s, played well through the back nine, shot a 47 xtra putts with aeriated greens and all. Sadly missed about 5 putts under 3 feet. Sand and holes were a pain but I was sticking greens. I stuck one 220 yds out with my 4 wood too. I may have to sneak out Saturday though...

Yep last time I hit GIR on a 400yd par first hole at my course. I hate this hole I never can get on it in 2 but this time I did. So I started eying my putt and I was like ok straight at it. But its over sand/aeration holes/leaves sticks and what is that??? Goose poop..

lol I might just hit on and put the ball 5ft away and putt from there until I make it lol. Screw 30ft putts with the greens like that.

I really should have adopted the 3 foot rule today. Just consider them made and move on...

I don't think they play that poorly, I just think they want to leave a wndy cold rainy dank place and I can't say I blame them. It is like choosing a office with a window to a mountain view or one with a brick wall. There is a reason people "holiday" in sunny warm places. I guess you do not get to experience 2 feet or more snow on your golf courses or -12 C degree temps. The courses close before it snows due to winterization of everything and early darkness limits play time.

It's not so much the cold, but the wind. 40s, 30s, and even 20s aren't that bad if it's calm, but 40s and windy you might as well be in Antarctica.

Well they are professionals its not a holiday its suppose to be tough, but -12 and 2 feet of snow explains everything really

Youve obviously never played a winterized course. There are no yardage markers or even Tee markers sometimes. Sand traps have plastic in them and have not been raked in more than a month. The greens are aerated and covered with sand to prevent damage from the snow and frozen ground. Everything is covered with leaves meaning a shot in the middle of the fairway might be under the leaves and gone forever. Its a whole different game.

    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      No problem.  I'm not tired of responding to sincere and thoughtful posts, like yours, even if it rehashes stuff from before because OF COURSE it is unrealistic to expect people to read 3000 posts before commenting.  In any case I have that quote in a file and it was simple to post it - much simpler and politer than saying "go find it , it's here."  I DO think that one should maybe at least read a smattering of such a big thread before jumping in,   But I have no patience whatsoever with the "I saw Jack play" and "he was nice at a clinic" type posts or posts by people who try to claim some special credibility because of some entirely personal subjective connection.  But that isn't you. As to the rest, you asked for the exact quote and I gave it to you.  If you want to argue with what he said, that is another matter and does not concern me, since my position is that even if we, arguendo, say that the field strengths did NOT get better, Tiger's career was so much more dominant than Jack's that it doesn't matter.  I don't NEED to make a stronger field argument to make the case that Tiger dominated golf in a way and to an extent that no other golfer has ever dominated golf.  And he did it for 15 years (after an absolutely unprecedented career as an amateur) which, IMO, is long enough that it no longevity argument could overcome the sheer dominance advantage his career embodied.   The fact that all that is true in the face of field strength increasing is just icing on the cake.   
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      Excellent. Thank you for re-posting that quote. Sorry to hear you're tired of rehashing. Why not just let the thread die then? Is the expectation that folks will read all 272 pages before making a comment? That strikes me as an unrealistic expectation.. I agree the tour is tougher than it used to be. I consider the differences more incremental than astronomical...not the 'order of magnitude' range that seems to come through in some comments. I think Jack is both being accurate in assessing his perception of a shift in quality, but also exaggerating for effect or experiencing present-day myopia at the very least about the money. $100 in 1962 money would be ~ $800 dollars today. Not exactly what I would call bus fare. The 'paltry' $100,000 had the buying power of about $800,000 in today's dollars, which is ~ 60% of today's average purse and ~ 30% of the Players' purse).. Most Americans would happily take an annual salary like that today. They weren't getting ditch digger wages. The prize money even then definitely attracted keen competitive interest. Clearly purses have also grown more than inflation and even journeyman make more in a year than the top 10 in 1962 (below), but it seems about in line with the growth of the population of golfers in the U.S. itself - about triple since Jack's day, Endorsement money has definitely gotten bigger, as the tour and the golf marketplace have developed and expanded over time.   Rank       Player                  1962 $                   2015 $ 1            Arnold Palmer        $81,448                 $639,223 2            Gene Littler           $66,201                 $519,562 3            Jack Nicklaus         $61,869                 $485,563 4            Billy Casper            $61,842                 $485,351 5            Bob Goalby            $46,241                 $362,910 6            Gary Player            $45,838                 $359,748 7            Doug Sanders        $43,340                 $340,143 8            Dave Ragan          $37,327                 $292,951 9            Bobby Nichols       $34,312                 $269,288 10          Phil Rodgers          $32,182                 $252,572
