Pretty impressive..... I have to admit the neat "after the fact" scorecard makes his accomplishment look cheap.  I'd rather see the original sloppy card from the round................

68 (-4) I worked at a country club as a caddie and in the bag room from age 13-22. (through college).  I knew the course like the back of my hand.

At my home course from the back tees -5 under par (67)

In tournament play -3 under par a million years ago in a Regional Highschool match winning medalist honors.

I've shot -1, and -2 a few times in various medal play tourney's.

Have shot even on a few 9s, and shot -1 once for 9....

Showtime,

I appreciate that you included the course rating and slope too because  lets face it........all courses are not created equal!!!   Nice playing on legit courses!!  I can relate to a score when I see a CR and slope attached to the score.  Without vital course information, I can't relate to a score........maybe it's a course rated 67.9cr with a 105 slope or something?......LOL

My low round:  72.5cr 137slope......(-4) 68.

What?  A 75 from those tees wasn't good enough to make a HS team?   That is just plain crazy........a 75 from those tees is good enough to make the top5 on most any HS team.  Even if it was a bit of a fluke, shooting a 75 from there will make the roster.  No HS team is that deep where a kid shoots 75 on that track doesn't get a roster spot.

I'm guessing there is more to the story than the 75?  The only way I can see that falling short if it's one of those private golf academy 'pseudo Highschools' where prodigies and pro golfer wannabes fly in from all over the country/world to learn to play golf. (where HS education is secondary to golf)

Just a large (1800+ students) public high school south of Denver. At least two of the players on the team were good enough to have a shot at winning the State championship. See below for the bigger reason why I didn't make the team. I think I missed a playoff by a single stroke.

Yea...there is definitely more to this story.

Can you be more specific....... The tips may only be 5700yds 65CR and 103slope...........LOL It just depends on the course!! Saying it's a "tour course" is a little vague.......

I kinda feel bad for Ryan Munson - he shot a 69 and lost by 14 strokes.

Thought I would give this thread a bump.

When I was younger (15 at the time) and playing tournament golf, I went with my father on a business trip to Charlotte. The first day we were there, he had meetings all day, so I played Rocky River Golf Club with two random guys they paired me up with. The course is 6970 yards from the tees we played, par 72, rating is 73.5, and the slope is 137. I shot 33+32=65 the first day, and naturally my dad didn't believe me. He played with me again the next day and I shot 33+31=64 for my career best round. I shot 64 several times on the course that I grew up on, but it's a par 71 (and really easy).

shot a 38 on the front nine yesterday (par 34).

I had 7 pars with one bogey and one real bad hole.

I have spent the past few weeks focusing on slowing down my backswing and doing a smooth transition, and because of this I was hitting such pure shots all day.

I also spent more hours than normal on putting and chipping and clutch putts and pitches to save par on some holes really helped.

It feels really good to see your hard work pay off sometimes.

    • I’ve got tennis elbow so I’ve only been a few times over the last few years as hitting balls one after the other does me no favours.   I’ve got tennis elbow so I’ve only been a few times over the last few years as hitting balls one after the other does me no favours.   I usually play Wednesdays and Fridays also the odd Monday  . If I don’t play Monday I will often go and have some practice, either that or a Tuesday. I often take the Driver , 3 wood 4,5 & 6 irons out of the bag and go with the rest. Learn to hit shots with the clubs I have ,stop around the green have a few chips ,pitches putts etc.  Also I read Dave Pelz’s short game book a while back. I’ve adapted my bike and can fit a wedge on it. At night I go down to the corner of a mown area by sports fields. I take turns of which wedge, and do pitch & 2 different ‘finesse’ swings. Over summer I’ve gotten a pretty fair idea of how far I hit the various swings & it’s definitely paid dividends . I regularly get up & down from under 100 yards, especially under 40/50.  Before I just sort of guessed which club, and the other benefit is swinging slower I find I’m much more accurate with my direction. 
    • One of the things I have noticed about really good Youtube channels - let alone excellent films, is exactly this. There might be a time lapse that would take hours to video, but it is on screen for perhaps less than two seconds. But it gives the presentation quality. Look at films with incredible special effects and costumes/props - Lord of the Rings, for example. Years and years go into making things like a belt that a camera may never even focus on, or be a hundred metres a way, but the film wouldn't work without them.The total is greater than the sum of its parts. The flip side of this, of course, is that a prop that takes 5 minutes to make and looks like crap it is noticeably crap even if it is on screen for half a second, like a poorly photoshopped "family portrait" or newspaper "front page" with a stuck on headline on paper not even close to the colour of the newspaper. The devil is in the detail and tiny things connect to make the big picture. A bit like golf, perhaps.
    • I’d rather have it shut than open. I can find a swing where it’s more shut than that. Open doesn’t work for me, the extended lead wrist gets me steep and I shallow late, leave the face too open (or shank) going to A7. The last 3 instructors I’ve worked with have told me to bow the lead wrist at 4 more and I’ll get away from that and get steep.  When I try and do that my arms come off my chest and path goes too out to in. When I feel like I drop the club behind me at A4 my arms will go out towards the ball pretty good I think, like in the second swing, at A5 my hands bisect the torso. 
    • My 2 cents is that if you have to add more than 1.5" or so, you are really in need of new shafts. As far as "orange dot length" is concerned, I always thought that the dot color only denoted lie angle, not length. For example, if I were to order Pings, I would want blue dot (1" upright) at standard length (I fall on the short end of standard range). I just came across an old post on here that give a good Ping chart. Don't comment in there unless it is really pertinent though, as it is quite an old thread.
