post #73 of 75

Neither of mine are likely to happen but:

 

1. Shoot under the course rating.

 

2. Play Augusta.

 

Seems to be pretty big wall around the course rating that's too high to jump. (Luck has let me get close a few times but she won't let me get over).

 

I might have better luck jumping the wall at Augusta. :-D

I think you're wrong about #1 never happening.  I'm an 8 handicap and I've had a handful of <3 differentials in my career.  One of them was last summer, and it was a 78 on a course rated 73.8 with a triple bogey on 18.  And I missed a couple of makeable putts earlier in the round.  If I could be 2 or 3 swings away from pulling that off, then certainly a 5 capper has it in him.:beer:

Makes sense because so far your "wall" has been <3 and my "wall" has been even with the CR. Like you I could have done it, but always found a way to mess it up.

 

Biggest handicap for me doing it is that I only play rated courses maybe 15 times a year, and haven't played one at all this year.

 

I need a vacation to go jump some walls. :-D
