Scott, it's the "makable" putts challenge. You should pick putts a Tour player can make at least 10-15% of the time.

Sure, you might get hot and make two 45' putts and get 82 points or something… but that's not the purpose or role of the game.

Which is why it starts out with: "I created a game for someone who tends to leave too many putts from 8-15’ short."

Thanks. I was trying to read the instructions on my iPhone and missed that part.

These were not from the same line. I moved around a little bit and picked a hole that had some slope.

As you should, yes. You don't just hit the same putt over and over again, you pick 10 different putts.

27 isn't bad for a first attempt.

I tried it again with putts in the 8-15’ range. I put 5 balls around a hole in that distance range at different angles. Then repeated on a different hole. Two or three other putts lipped out. If the intent is to get better a not leaving putts short, it was an improvement.

  1. 1 putt from 9’, 5
  2. 2 putt Long 12’, 6
  3. 2 putt Long, 13’ 7
  4. 2 putt long, 12’ 8
  5. 2 putt short, 12’, 7
  6. 2 putt long 9’, 8
  7. 2 putt long, 12’, 9
  8. 2 putt long 13’, 10
  9. 2 putt long 14’, 11
  10. 2 putt long 15, 12

I did this challenge today:

1. 2 putt from 5' long    1pt

2. 2 putt from 12' long   1 pt

3. 2 putt from 15' long   1pt

4. 1 putt from 6'              2 pt

5. 2 putt from 18' long    1 pt.

6. 2 putt from 12' long     1 pt.

7. 2 putt from 15' short     -1 pt.

8. 2 putt from 18' long      1 pt. 

9. 2 putt from 12' long      1 pt.

10. 2 putt from 5'               1 pt. 

 

9 points. For all of the 2 putts except one, I left tap ins. All putts were from different directions on four different holes on the practice green

Tough challenge, but will be good for my playing in the long rung because my first attempt reflects what I really do during a round.

Tried this out today:

  1. 9 foot putt short: -1
  2. 10 foot make: 6
  3. 12 foot 2 putt: 1
  4. 15 foot 2 putt: 1
  5. 20 foot 2 putt: 1
  6. 6 foot 3 putt: -3
  7. 9 foot make: 5
  8. 12 foot make: 8
  9. 20 foot 2 putt: 1
  10. 19 foot make: 15

Got lucky with the last make. That 3 putt was pretty ugly and cost me the highest score. Oh well.

Okay, I did this today. Perhaps I did it just a little differently than everyone else. I put 5 balls in a circle around the hole at 8 feet. (Sort of the "clock drill" everyone is familiar with but with only 5 balls and at 8 feet.) Then after I putted those, I did the exact same thing, but put the 5 galls in a circle around the hole at 12 feet. Here are my results:

  • 8 foot - past the hole - 2 putt = +1 points
  • 8 foot - past the hole - 2 putt = +1 points
  • 8 foot - made it = +4 points
  • 8 foot - past the hole - 2 putt = +1 points
  • 8 foot - 3 putt = - 4 points
  • 12 foot - past the hole - 2 putt = +1 points
  • 12 foot - made it = +8 points
  • 12 foot - past the hole - 2 putt = +1 points
  • 12 foot - not past the hole - 2 putt = -1 points
  • 12 foot - past the hole - 2 putt = +1 points

Total = 13 points. 

I look forward to trying this again to improve upon that 13 points.

Okay, I tried this again today. At the end of my practice session I went to the putting green and gave this a shot. 

  • 8 foot - past the hole; 2 putt = +1 point
  • 8 foot - made it; +4 points
  • 8 foot - made it; +4 points
  • 8 foot - past the hole; 2 putt = +1 points
  • 8 foot - past the hole; 2 putt = +1 point
  • 15 foot - past the hole; 2 putt = +1 points
  • 15 foot - past the hole; 2 putt = +1 points
  • 15 foot - past the hole; 2 putt = +1 points
  • 15 foot - not past the hole; 2 putt = -1 points
  • 15 foot - way past the hole; 3 putt 🤣 = -7.5 points

Total +5.5 points.... Argh! 

I so badly wanted to make a 15 footer. That 3 putt at the very end killed me. Feels like a choke. 🤮

Sometimes I want to kick my own ass.

Good work. You kept it together on the last one. I didn't. I left the second to last one short and blazed the last one way past and 3 putted to ruin my score. You, on the other hand, showed great consistency.

Thanks. I had one hole on which I putt the first putt about 5' by. Talk about a pressure comebacker!

Tried this again today. I actually tried it twice. Once at the start of my practice session and once at the end. This is the better of my two efforts. 

  • 10 foot - past the hole - 2 putt = +1 point          1
  • 10 foot - past the hole - 2 putt = +1 point          2
  • 10 foot - made it = +6 points                               8
  • 10 foot - past the hole - 2 putt = +1 point           9
  • 10 foot - made it = +6 points                               15
  • 16 foot - past the hole - 2 putt = +1 point           16
  • 16 foot - made it = +12 points                               28
  • 16 foot - past the hole - 2 putt = +1 point            29
  • 16 foot - past the hole - 2 putt = +1 point            30
  • 12 foot - past the hole - 2 putt = +1 point            31

31 points is a huge improvement for me. I think the key to this game is to focus on speed. ... Hmm.... I wonder if that's true of "real" putting? Getting them all just past the hole improves your score. I did have 2 knee-knockers on the way back to avoid the score killing 3-putt. But I sank them both so they didn't hurt me.

    • Day 205.  Five minutes of full swing (6-iron), usual routine, in the indoor room after work today. An aside.  I'm very happy that I'm keeping up daily practice, even if most days are only a few minutes.  
    • Maybe. Nothing in the scenario states you’re never going to play that well again.
    • Day 67 (9/30/22): Today I went back to preset drills. I did a short session of them, then went to abbreviated backswing swings, trying to capture the same feel. Then I played a simulated round, trying to see how often I could get the impact position with real swings in a real round. I give myself a C. I think I probably executed the move correctly in maybe 1/3 of the full swings. A second third were not perfect but better than my usual swing. The other 1/3 were bad swings, the old swing. I also felt a little pain in my neck and so I was swinging sort of easy, and I skipped post-round practicing to rest it. 
    • Maybe I read it wrong or just think totally different than everyone else. I read both as a stand alone type event. Like you have that score one time, but never play that good again. Obviously if it means I had a significant breakthrough in my game and had that game the it would mean more in that context. But I'd still take the ace over a stand out one time only great score overall.
