I like that idea GD

 

Forecast doesn't look as bad as I thought

Sure.

 

Or ... I think most of us have not met in person yet, so in the interest of camaraderie, maybe we should do one tensome? c2_beer.gif

Everyone knows 30% is the CYA number.

 

Of course maybe that's not true in San Diego...

Can I take a higher HC too?  I've been making swing changes as well.  Feels on the verge, but wildly inconsistent right now.  I feel like I could show up and play like a 5 or a 20!  Have shot a 74 and a 94 in the past month...

LOL... Now that would be interesting.

Based on that desciption and your listed handicap, I think you are me!  Although, I cannot claim a 74 in the past month, I have in the past three months covered almost the exact same range ... from a 74 to a 92.  Sadly my 74 was months ago, and my 88's and 92's are a lot more recent.

 

I have a good feeling about this weekend though.  (Of course, I feel that way before every round, which is why I keep going back out there) :)

 

I don't remember it too well (only been there once) but I think it's my kind of course.  Which basically means I think I can hit it in other fairways and recover, as opposed to a lot of the newer courses where many holes are bordered by ESA's and wild unkempt areas.c2_beer.gif

Again, probably moot because we're presumably playing net, but just throwing it out there. :)

This sounds good to me.

OK, I just read back through the thread to find Beach's friends handicaps.  They are Andrew (4.5) and Mike (10 or 12, so lets call it 11)  Assuming all of our listed handicaps are accurate, I came up with this order:

 

1.  Mvmac ..................... 0

2.  Beachcomber ........... 3.9

3.  Andrew .................... 4.5

4.  Pakoh ...................... 4.9

5.  Golfingdad ................ 9.6

6.  MDL ........................ 9.8

7.  Mike ........................ 11

8.  Tristan ..................... 12.8

9.  Jimdangles ..............  13

10. Lihu ........................ 25

 

Maybe instead of my original assigned group idea, we just put everybody in pairs (most of the pairs HDCPs are pretty darn similar anyway) and we draw straws.  Mvmac and Beach will each draw a straw to see who's on A team and B team, then Andrew and Pakoh, then me and MDL, etc.  The last minute randomness might be kind of fun.

 

Or ...

 

Mvmac and Beach are captains and they pick their teams playground style!

 

and if we are playing 5-somes, does that mean we should take 3 best balls each hole for the score?  Or even 4?  Just give one guy on each team the opportunity to blow up, but after that, it's going to cost you.

 

Disclaimer:  I've never been involved in organizing a tournament format before so I'm just pulling these ideas from you-know-where. c2_beer.gif

I like this!  I like a little randomness thrown in.    (My HC might go up to 5.1-5.2 on saturday, shouldnt be a big difference)

post #191 of 232

Pakoh and I have to be on opposite teams.  f3_laugh.gif  Just kidding dude!  I look forward to doing whatever.  

 

I went to the range tonight... Lots of e1_poo.gif shots were made.  But it is getting a little better.

Good ideas GD.  Yeah either is fine with me.  Going odd's versus even's or picking straws.  Best 3 balls out of five per hole makes the most sense to me.  It's 9am right?

Yeah.  (I had to run back through and confirm it from Pakoh's receipt.) c2_beer.gif

 

They do have a driving range/practice area and I have been out of practice lately, what with vacations and holiday parties, so I will definitely be out there early warming up.

 

Current forecast is still 30% chance of rain and a high of 63F.  (Saturday night low is 48 so it will probably still be pretty nippy when we get out there)

i would be down to make the teams with Me and Mac on one side and you and andrew on the other!  that way it is HC 1 and 4 together and HC 2 and 3 together.  Just a thought.

That is fine by me.  I need to go hit the range and practice my punch shots in the rain!!
