About 5 years ago I used to play a reverse scramble with friends. It was a game that had to be played in the evening when the course was quiet. There might be an official name for this game, or it doesn't exist because it takes too long, but its great fun.
Instead of taking best ball, worst ball counts. I have never played it with more than 3 to a team because it would just take too long.
Realistically, it can only be played if the team consists of lower handicappers, add a player with double figures at your peril.
Putting is the most difficult as the worst approach from the worst tee shot is normally quite a long putt. Although all 3 players try to lag it as close as possible, the team normally faces a tricky 4 or 5 footer which in turn all 3 must hole. Get my drift.
Have any of you every played this?
It's a great character builder.
I understand keeping the Northern states off the list. Winter stinks up here. But 115F is no picnic either. Neither is 95 with 90 RH. My friend who lives in Vero Beach, FL in the winter says golf there in the summer is brutal. He leaves in May for NH. My niece lives in Phoenix and she says summer is unbearable.
I would think the best places would be where you can play all year comfortably. Hawaii, the Carolina Coast and West Coast California. It can get cool on the coast, but it doesn’t snow that much in Charleston.
I don’t mind different grips, but within each of these club types, the grips must match:
The different grip types in these categories often gives me a semi-conscious tactile reminder of the slightly different swings for the club types, if that makes sense.
My iron set is: 6-9, PW, AW and SW. According to the 85% figure (8i relative to driver) that has been thrown about, my distances seem in line with the norm. I am guessing that with most golfers perhaps 9i would be the club that would be half the length of a driver on average.
