Just wanted to chime in. Talega is a pretty hard course. So, don't judge anything based on his score.

Maybe it is @Lihu .. There is a reason what I am following this thread and it is because I find what he is doing interesting, and the only tool I have to measure his progress is the score he posts..

I have an idea, since not everyone here is going to know how tough the courses are the he plays (I know I wont at least) I suggest that @KyleAnthony post the adjusted score according to the slope & rating of the course?

Dear @kyleAnthony the other guy asked that question because he wanted to know if he should keep following this thread or not.. If you said that you were not optimistic then that would give him enough reason to just drop off and follow some other thread! :)

That's a good question.. What I meant was something like this I guess.

 

Starting Handicap: 14

Round Score: 90 - (18 over)

Ending Handicap: 13 

 

I think this would give a good indication of the toughness of the course..

 

Also, if you were offended by my question just let me know and I won't ask things like that again.. I can be very blunt and direct sometimes and I'm sorry.

oh umm my index was 13.5, but after i entered my score of 87 at Talega it dropped to 13.0 but it knocked off a 92 at an easy course so that helped more i think

 

 

i think your index recalculates every 2 weeks or maybe every month

I see what you are saying.. Maybe it would be helpful for you to list for all of us all the current scores that make up your handicap.. That way we can really follow your progress :)

 

When do you expect to play the last game before you find out if you had made your goal or not?

 

Do you already have your games scheduled till that time?  How many of them do you plan on playing?

 

Since the handicap system doesn't discriminate according to what course you play, do you have any specific strategy on what courses you plan on playing so that you can optimize your chances of reaching your goal?

uhhh i don't know when the last game will be, my birthday is september 25th so thats the goal and my index will update the 15th, but i'd like to get their before the last moment

 

 

i have a few tournaments scheduled between now and then. 5 to be exact

 

 

i have been working on course management which has helped a lot. also the tips I'm getting on here and the lessons i am taking are helping with skill and confidence. confidence in shots seems to be my downfall, if i don't think about it i do better so i need to get that down. putting could be a little better, but that comes with practice in reading greens, approach shots are coming together as long as i don't get over excited

Looking forward to meeting/playing with you Monday at Oak Valley. It should be fun, it's one of my favorite courses.

I take it you've changed from your original schedule of "practice 5 days, play one"...... a1_smile.gif

I agree....I'd much rather play golf than practice it'. c2_beer.gif
