Let the record show that a boy of age 14 won his local tournament. 1st place :D

I walked in with confidence, and I did just fine. As opposed to the more nervous people, who's nervousness led to ill-turning shoulders and tight muscles.

I'm pretty excited. It wasn't anything big, but I'm just glad I won. The 1st place prize was like a box of balls. Taylormade Burner LDP balls. They didn't do big prizes because we're only young ages, and a little older. (Which I think is unfair. If we're gonna play, treat us if we're serious.)

But yeah, I'm pretty psyched

They do the small prize so you can remain an amateur. If you get a big prize you are considered a "professional." That means you can't play high school or college golf.

You can win $750 in pro shop merchandise in one tournament and retain your amateur status

I got 9 over, but I mean that's not too bad for my age I suppose

I'm almost twice your age and I would be happy with a 9 over :)

Congratulations. Your new nickname is "undefeated"

Nice job man! I was in a 14-15 year old tournament this week and after the first day I was leading but the next day this kid shot 73 and edged me by a stroke.

Nice what's the name of your tour?

I play in the Northern Ohio junior pga events and the kenny novak tours.

Really I'm not sure if we even have a junior tour where I live. I'm in South Carolina. If I was in Myrtle Beach, maybe they'd have alot of Junior things, because golf is pretty serious, but I'm just in quiet ol' lexington. We just have little tourneys here and there. This was just a local tournament at my golf club.

    • Day 517: Played 18 today with new concepts/feels from my lesson to address my bad hook misses. Didn’t feel like I was playing particularly great, but scored well (79), and zero hooks. Shots that I didn’t control the club face well were straight fades or slightly pushed fades, all playable. Driver wasn’t good today but only hit it on three holes.
    • Sugar Hill Golf Club - Front Nine 49 Stupid mistakes cost me on three holes. I went bogey, triple (8 on a par 5), bogey, double, bogey, bogey, double, bogey, par.  On both doubles, I couldn't find my ball and had to take a drop.  On the first one, I never heard it hit any trees or anything, but I lost it into the setting sun.  I have no doubt that it was somewhere in the deep Bermuda rough along the right side of the fairway, but I never found it.  The second was well struck (out of the rough because of a topped 3 hybrid) and based on my aim, it should have been okay, but it was nowhere to be found.  The par-five ninth was a series of five almost perfect shots on a difficult, sloping double dogleg hole.
    • Thank you I appreciate that. What made the birdies so nice that all my shots in both of them were great shots. One thing a person of my handicap has a hard time doing is being consistent. When I I'm consistent, even only through one hole or two, it feels great. I shot an 80 on the course which was also very good for my level, and this was after shooting 102 just days before , LOL.
    • First off, is this the oldest topic in the forum? 15 Years, wow. This discussion about the greatest of all time is mute.  All sports have the same point and counterpoints. Most Home-runs, best hitter in baseball, most Super Bowl Rings, on and on. Comparing athletes from different eras are practically impossible. From changes ranging from physicality to equipment, travel, nutrition, playing conditions, shorter courses vs longer courses, stadiums indoor vs outdoor, astroturf, lowering the mounds, 3 point lines, instant replay and more. Best of an “ERA” I could believe in that. Sustainability in a sport is a good measure, but not those that linger.  Having the most Majors?  Most Super Bowl Trophies? Individual sports, Team Sports? Jack vs Tiger?  Take your pick.  
    • Did they reattach the head? Not sure what the point of this game is. You could just do it on a football field. Why take up space on a golf course? Also they’e from Ipswich, MA. I’ve never seen anything like this around here.
