# Explain golf to me like I'm a 7yo. OK, here's a primer from a 7 yo.

So I'm watching "The Short Game" (Netflix - http://movies.netflix.com/WiMovie/The_Short_Game/70290567?trkid=2361637) with family and after this segment, they're like - oh, now we understand golf, despite me having explained it over and over again. Facepalm!

• What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
If an average PGA Tour player played an 18-hole par-five course, yes, they'd shoot more under par than if they played a par-three course. But what score would they shoot on the 18-hole par-five course? 83 would be pretty good. -7. You've made a few statements that indicate to me that you don't truly appreciate how difficult golf is. Go back and re-read what I've said in this thread, to you and to others. I think my points are valid, and I think you're vastly over-estimating how good PGA Tour players are. Heck, I'll try another way, 6800/18 = 378 yards. Let's round that up to 380 yards (6840), and down to 360 yards (6480). 18 * 3.96 = 71.28 18 * 3.92 = 70.56 Things aren't looking so good for the "oh, they would shoot 61 easy" crowd.
I didn't know they had a video.  I think that is probably a good start and then I can go from there. It's funny, back in the 80's a group of us would play 9 holes after work in the Summer.  One of the guys brought in a video Golf My Way and we watched a good chunk of it during lunch.  I went out that evening and shot the best 9 hole score of my life... 3 over.  The video didn't change my golf game, because the effects were only short term, (hours), but to this day I will give credit to that lunchtime video session.

• Jr Tournament play?
Ok thx for input . Most junior tourneys we play in don't allow parents . The tournament in referring to allows caddies and most spectators walk but one guy always ends up in cart even when we're told none available .
• Ireland Trip coming up soon
I took my first trip there in 2004 with a bunch of buddies, and loved it so much that I went back in 2006 with my wife.  Both times, we stayed mostly in the SW, so that will almost feel like going home.  The first week is all new to us, so will be quite an adventure.  Driving isn't really bad, just gotta take our time.  It IS interesting driving a manual there, shifting left-handed, but I drive a manual every day at home.
• 50 States and 50 Capitals Golf Trip
This is such a cool idea.  Sorry for the delay you are having, family losses are always tough to deal with.  However, I am glad to hear that you are planning to continue on.  I might have to do something like this when I retire (which is in 20 years). I couldn't really tell from the summaries, have you played in Columbia, SC yet?  If not, let me know when you plan on it and I can possibly drive down.  I used to live there, but am in Greenville now.   Also, big shout out to @jsgolfer for coming through on the golf course in Annapolis!
