That's kind of the point. The most likely score should be reserved for rounds that are unable to be completed if you have already completed the required 13 holes or whatever it is. The only place gimmes have in golf is during match play IMO. The more gimmes you take in stroke play, the weaker a golfer you are (also IMO).
Ah, but you would be missing out on shooting better scores if your make percentage of 5 footers went up to 65%. Just giving you a hard time here but that would be like me saying I average 74 per round and not even having to bother with the expense or time of going out to play golf today, just put down a 74. Remember, those 5 footers build character... or tear it down. 😁
Maybe those that haven’t seen any benefits aren’t using a strong enough version or you bought a cheap knock off. Nobody says what brand, concentration level, or form. If you are using a balm or cream to lower your stress you most likely won’t see any benefits. Just like if you used drops for a sore neck you won’t get anything. Just like with any product there are good products and inferior. If you grab a CBD oil from 7-11 you wasted your money. Good stuff ain’t cheap. You should be ready to drop between $50 and $80 or more for the good stuff.
2. 1/2/3 I play mostly with 6-10 HC's but play with lower or a little higher at times.
3. 2 Our 2nd/17th holes have lots of errant balls as there is a steep hill and hazard to the left and the 17th FW is not a bad place to play your ball from for the 2nd hole which is a par 5.
