Would You Rather…?

What I do on my deathbed is irrelevant. The point is there are many more worthwhile things I could do with $1,000 than to have one sub-70 round of golf.

This is the Pebble Beach discussion all over again.

Yes it is.  A sort of "memories" vs. "money" kind of thing.

Would you rather shoot a 67 the 1st day of Spring 2020 or win a $1000 lottery the same day while shooting a 95?

Hey boys (and girls)... don't forget to pay your taxes on your lottery winnings come April 15.  😃

I'll take the 67.   It would be a "very" personal best.    

The $1k would put tires on my car but they would need replacing after several years. I'd remember the 67 for the rest of my life.   Life is all about experiences.

No, it's not. It's a very specific memory vs money I didn't have before.

With $1,000 I could play a few destination courses near me I wouldn't normally consider playing. I could treat three of my fellow Sandtrappers to a round of golf at a nicer area course. I could take my kids out to watch a Broadway show. These are all memories that I'd much rather have than a single round of 67 carded before the handicap season even begins.

Fair enough.  It is about creating memories.  For you Bill they'd forestall the 67 until the first day New Jersey handicaps are back in effect.  It'll look good on your GHIN Handicap Lookup page.  Betting I'm not one of the Sandtrappers you'd invite to a round of golf.  😊

I'm still waiting for you to make good on that Pebble Beach offer 😉

At this point in my life, shooting the 67. No contest there. Even using my hndcp, a 67 is still pretty much out of reach for me. 

I can always get $1000.00 and shoot a 95 anytime.

See, that's the part I was trying to figure. How can I get paid $1000 for shooting a 95? Do share. Not the lottery trick though. I would like to see if I can make it to Pebble on the first day of spring armed with this trick... 😁

March 19, the first day of Spring, is also the first day of the Valspar Championship.  If you could wrangle an invite you could possibly be the leader in the clubhouse after day 1.

I have never shot in the "60's" and a 67 would allow me to shoot my age.  I am going with the 67.  Now, if I were quite a bit younger, I might take the money and figure (perhaps foolishly) that I would shoot 67 at some point in the future.

Of course, if this were the "Twilight Zone", I would shoot 67 on a par 60 executive course.:facepalm

Was just checking last year's first round scores.  Your 67 would have you tied for the 2nd lowest score of the day, behind a 66.

Rioja IS your friend.  You just gave me a happy hour idea.

Easy answer is shoot the 67, - oh wait, before that is my final answer is that for 18, or do I have to play the back nine still to finish my day?

Haha... it's a 67 on a course with a course rating of 72 or more.  And you can even wear the outfit in your icon photo... that would make your score that much more impressive.

    • Cycling to a golf course definitely adds an adventurous twist to the game. To make it feasible, consider paring down your gear and opting for lightweight equipment. Investing in a bike rack designed for golf clubs can also help ease the transportation process. Planning your route carefully and allowing for extra time can ensure a smooth ride to the course.When it comes to protecting your bike and gear, bicycle insurance is essential. Considering the investment in both your bike and golf equipment, it's wise to have coverage for unexpected events. You can explore bicycle insurance uk to find a policy that fits your needs.
    • Are these one putt percentages? Even if those three buckets between 12 and 30 feet are all 1 for 2, that's high. 3 for 6 from 12 to 30 feet is a serious outlier. The others could be: 15/16 6/11 7/12 5/13 1/2 1/2 1/2 1/9 67 putts total, which is probably 2 rounds? My rough shot at strokes gained for that lot would be: -0.6 + -2.8 + 0.0 + 0.5 + 0.5 + 0.8 + 0.9 + 0.0 = -0.7 (PGA Tour baseline). Over two rounds that's pretty good and extremely good for a 15 index baseline. I'd think a 15 index would be expected to be somewhere in the -6 over two rounds. And that's with 3-6ft killing you.
