The topic is how many keys to really start to enjoy the game?
Everyone has been more concerned about making progress towards the single digits or scratch, I just wondered how many people care more about having fun and enjoying a shank free round (not perfect strikes, but serviceable) more than getting "better" for betters sake.
So, my progress has been very positive for the last three and a half months. My key 3 suffered all of 1 week when I changed my woods to really heavy ones because my wrists were getting stronger. Once this was fixed my golfing has never really been better.
With just roughly 2 keys under my belt (0.9 for key 1; 0.75 for key 2 and 0.35 for key 3 on the course; http://thesandtrap.com/t/67014/keys-vs-handicap-share-your-data#post_844167), I have found that I am really getting onto or near the greens with much more reliability than before this in turn makes the game much more enjoyable.
I did not post or really score my last couple rounds with my son, but they were a couple of the most fun rounds I had. I hit the greens quite a few times, and am really starting to enjoy the game. My short game just kind of happened, although there is a lot of improvement to be made in this area with "Method of 12" and "Aimpoint", but it was good enough. I do not recall having anything more than one or two doubles in both rounds, and parred quite a few with nice relaxed up and downs.
Who else thinks this way, and at what point do you just start to enjoy the game?
It would be interesting to see the intersection of how many keys are attained and true enjoyment meet together.
