Shot an 84, and an 87, today which is pretty good considering last night's (late) party activities. It's been a while since I golfed with a hangover. Finished 5th out of 10 in our little gathering. Won a golf shirt that has "Golf Lives Matter" on the back. Another round tomorrow I suppose.
What is your birdie conversion rate from GIR position? and your HI? This is an informal survey of how golfers with different skill level convert their GIRs to birdies.
I have HI of about 15 and convert 8% of GIR putts into birdies.
+3 39. 3 birdies, 2 pars, 2 bogies, 2 double bogies. Weird nine, great ball striking, a couple holes where I got myself into slightly iffy situations around the green and my short game just didn't pick me up today. Played the first 6 holes at -1 before going double (3 putt after a very poor chip [tried a low 8 iron under a greenside tree and my lack of experience executing the shot showed as I almost rolled it through the green]), par (par 3), double (3 putt after a poor sand shot...this was a long putt, but it was really just poor putting).
Of course on seven I shouldn't have been in the position I was in in the first place. It was a lie that screamed pull and I chose to ignore my instinct and pulled it right under the tree beside the green.
i posted earlier that i felt as if my game was much improved, but my handicap hadn't dropped significantly. well after my round today, my index dropped to an all-time low of 3.9. i started the year as a 7.2 index, so I guess the results are starting to come!
played two rounds today at my home course. one off the blue tees and one off the white tees (6600 and 6300 yards) and shot 75-73. my handicap dropped to 3.9 - the first time i have ever been a 4 handicap!
