Yep, my first day around here. Brand new to the game of golf too.
I'm a guy with an opinion. Maybe you're new to the internet and message boards.
I've played at scores of private and semi-private clubs. Lots of them have the members handicaps right there on the locker room wall. So over time, you develop a sense of how good the average member is.
Except that it's been demonstrated many, many times that putting has less affect on someone's ability to score than just about any other aspect of the game. Your 22 hcp golfer isn't that much worse on the greens than you, me, or the club champion.....and he generally putts better on faster greens, just as we do. Of course, the speed of the greens cannot be inappropriate for their design, but that's not what this discussion is about.
Another opinion, though somewhat rudely expressed.
I will certainly agree that there is such a thing as too fast for the set up or design of the greens. But those are individual, unique situations that are far outside the norm, and not what we're talking about here.
