Played Memorial Park in 20-30 mph winds today and shot 81 for a 9.2 differential, which I'm pretty dang happy with to be honest. Didn't putt great and got a bit exposed by the tricky green complexes, but with the breeze as strong as it was it was just tough. Highlight of the day was definitely hitting 3w into the center of the green on 16, water surrounding on three sides with a 30 mph wind blowing straight into us, then two-putting from 60 feet downhill, downwind for par.
SG (compared to scratch):
Approach (>100 yds): -2.35
Short game (<100 yds): -1.93
I putt everything outside of ~6-8 inches out, and try to putt as many inside that as I can without interrupting my playing partners. People who give themselves putts are only hurting themselves by artificially lowering their handicaps. Plenty of video of PGA Tour pros missing putts inside 2 or even 1 feet. I missed a 2 footer yesterday. It happens. It doesn't happen often, but it happens.
