I’m in. Having trouble editing the Google doc from my phone, but I will put my info in very shortly.

Sadly, despite living in sunny SoCal, I have yet to play a round at my home course in 2020 and just played my first round anywhere last Friday.

I have tabulated this in my head on a historical basis but never over a single year. Should be fun

 

Download the Google Sheets app, then you can do it.

No need to download anything, unless you want to do it on your phone. It works easiest on a computer.

Played Summerlin once this week, today, three birdies, checked off 1 and 6 for Feb. 

I'm glad you didn't take the "monthly" thing literally and erase all of your birdies from the chart. Here's what I did though: I made a second tab for your monthly challenges, while the main one should just track your ringer score on all 18 holes.

Birdie on #7 par 4 today, 5 pars as well but, too bad about the rest of my round.

2nd round for the year. Birdied 18 (par 5, near green for 2, got up and down).

I can't get out to play, every time we have a nice day I have something I have to do. I haven't touched a club since January 20. Checked off 10 holes in two rounds, now I am stagnant. Might get out on Monday if the weather report holds true. Watch out once summer gets here and I can play several times a week!

I am happy to report that after 6 rounds, I knocked off all the pars, including those holes where I usually take a bogey... I also managed a couple of birdies so far as well.  Now it's on for the real meat of the birdie challenge.

BTW, if anyone plays a bunch of courses and wants to keep track of that type of birdie challenge, I made a new tab for that. I'll edit the first page too.

Great! I was just going to ask about that, being that I already have 9 holes covered (compared to only 2 in my designated course). Thanks!

Yeah. To be clear, only rounds NOT played on your home course are good for the second tab.

I knew the jinx was in, that was my last round so far. Might hit 40 Sunday so hoping to get out then.

Neat idea! I'm going to be in a league this year that my buddy signed me up for without my knowledge, so I'll get plenty of play on that course. I guess that will be my new "home course". I live in NE Ohio, and it's in the single digits as I type this, so there's plenty of time to sign up.

    • Great advice. I also have a Dremel tool which would seem to be useful in the process, possibly cutting or. deburring
    • If you have been doing regrips you are already well on your way. There is nothing mystical about club making, just geometry, physics, and common sense. If you've got the vise (by far most important tool), torch or heat gun, and a drill as mentioned, those are 3 big basics. Here is what I would add. Utility knife 48 inch ruler epoxy (start with quick set) sand paper (medium and fine grit) hacksaw, manual pipe cutter, rotary tool, or chop saw. Of course if you have a built out shop a belt sander is useful, as is the chop saw, but you can do all the same stuff with manual tools. If you have specific questions about picking shafts, I would ask those separately as you have to be more specific dealing with tip diameter, weight, length, flex, etc. I would look at some videos on Youtube as a starting point. I recommend finding the Mobile Clubmaker. 
    • You sound like you’re giving too much weight to the mental game.
    • Went to the course today to just putt and chip and just get some fresh air. There were two cop cars there turning people away. Thats the second time in a week I have seen the police used to shut down a golf course. Meanwhile, the jogging path that circles the golf course boundary fence was teeming with people walking and jogging, and the local park has people flying kites and hanging out as well. I just cannot understand my local government's emphasis on keeping people off the golf course. 
    • I sort of skimmed through this so I'll just add what I'm seeing here in Massachusetts. Laid off from my job of 18 years last fall I started working in the pro shop and will be teaching at the golf school that operates at the same club.  We are a public 18 hole course with range, restaurant, bar and patio. The governor issued a stay at home advisory last Tuesday.  He was keeping parks open though.  He said " just be smart and don't play basketball or football". ... Friggin brilliant!  We closed the restaurant, bar and patio the weekend before. The course and range closed on Tuesday.  The owner of the course talked to the board of health and town officials.  Where the order specified "brick and mortar" we moved our operation outside.  We abided by most of what was listed I the survey in this thread other than members only and group size.  We also wiped down every cart that came back in.  Staff wore latex gloves. We reopened on Thursday afternoon since the town said we sounded ok.  We sold out Friday and Saturday tee times.  Friday afternoon the board of health and 3 cops came down ( and they were not social distancing) with a revised letter from the governor closing us down.  We did let everyone finish.  We told the cops they would have to go out and get everyone if they wanted them off now. I can see how stupid people are though.  We did our part yet people come together in a car.  We give hem separate carts and a few people wanted to ride together and then questioned me on the one cart one person rule.  I told them that's the rule or you get no cart at all.  It's what we have to do to stay open... This week I plan on going out myself.  I work there.   I'm safer out there than anywhere else.  Walking down the street there are others out there, going to the grocery store, liquor store.  There is no "need" to play but I'm no threat out there and nobody is a threat to me.
