Home Course Ringer Score

How many of you have ever calculated your ringer score on your home course? Of course I mean converting the lowest score you have ever made on each hole to one 18 hole score. For instance over 36 years playing at MPCC here in Charlotte, I've made birdie on every hole, I've eagled three holes and have one hole-in-one. So my ringer score is -23 or 48 on our par 71 course. My guess is many of the better players on here might be in the low 40s or even the 30s. Another option might be to limit it to just this year. So far, my ringer score is -15 for 2020. I've birdied fourteen of our eighteen holes and made an eagle last Thursday (my first in nearly 20 years). I hope you all have fun with this exercise. Also, rest assured I'm not going to turn it around and calculate my "clunker" score which would probably be over 110.

Fun to do, but unless your hole-in-one was on a par 4 (in which case kudos on the albatross!), that makes 4 eagles or 4 strokes less than a birdie for every hole (which is 53 on a par 71 course), for a total of 49. Personally, I am in the mid-50s range as my eagles and one hole-in-one are all on different courses...

Congrats on getting in the forties club! :dance::beer:

So basically my topic was merged with a post from eight years ago, correct?

Yes. That's how it should be.

My home course ringer score… Start at -18, and then I have eagles on… 3, 5, 7, 8, 12… so… -23.

You're right. My hole-in-one was a par three. I screwed up the math. I'll correct it.

Well, I couldn't edit my original post. Sorry.

My ringer score is maybe a 62(-9)? I know I’ve parted every hole at least once and I’ve never made an eagle, so it’s down to how many holes I can remember ever making birdie on.

I don't have a "home course", but if you are a member of Golf Canada and enter your scores hole-by-hole (for handicap calculations), they can produce an "ultimate scorecard" for each course you played (by year or all time) and also by tee box. Generates some interesting results.

In 25 years or a bit more, I've birdied every hole, had eagles on all four par-5s, eagled one (maybe two, not entirely sure) of the par-4s, and have one ace on a par-3.  I think that calculated to be -24.

Yes, I have a mental "ringer" score at Leslie Park.  16 birdies, an eagle (par 4) and an ace for -20, or 52.  It took me a fair amount of time to birdie every hole.  Then in the past couple years I holed out for eagle on #8 and aced #17 in 2018.  I am not long enough to reach the par 5's so any improvement will need another fortunate hole out.

Using only my home course over the years, I have No Albatross's, Eagled all par 5's, Eagled 3 times on par 3'  (2 on same hole)
Eagled 4 different par 4's (12 times on my home hole #7) and all holes have been Birdied.  (30 under par)

My chances of making an Albatross are slim, none and none, until I reach the ripe old age when I may play it forward...  :cry:

I went back to look at my stats and in the last 8 years or so, I had managed to birdie every hole (which I wasn't sure of when I said my 50s above), and hole out a par 4, for a total of -19. If I remember correctly, I also had an eagle on one of the par 5s on that course before I started keeping the stats, so that's -20 or 52.

    • It’s kind of a weird situation, though, because the guy improved to the point that he wouldn’t even qualify for the flight he’s already in. I’m assuming the competition is gross scoring within the flight.
    • 79 today for a differential of 5.8. Ball striking with the irons was better but my wedges and putting were awful. Couldn't control the distance or direction at all with how bad I was striking it for some reason. SG (compared to scratch) Driving: 2.49 Approach (>100 yds): 0.19 Short game (<100 yds): -2.66 Putting: -2.40 I also track the "Tiger Five," which is a better way of quantifying all the silly mistakes I make during my rounds. These were: Bogeys on par 5s: 0 Double bogeys: 0 Three putts: 4 Bogeys with 9-iron or less: 2 Blown easy saves (which I quantify as any nGIR that isn't in a bunker/deep rough or terribly short sided): 3
    • Very recently a thread was started here about PingEye2 iron sets and subject was some folk (experienced players) were seeking out these clubs to play AGAIN.  I have played Eye2 irons for many years, now on my second set as the first set was stolen.  As old as this design is, people have always got good memories and respect for these clubs.  and you can find sets for $100 or less ALL DAY LONG.  Buy a set, re-grip, and he's set up - to see if he likes the game.  With the difference from buying sets suggested, you have $$ for that driver and putter (these clubs will be more per each than a couple sets of Eye2s). and a bag. Be sure to put new 'velvet' grips on the properly fit clubs (according to the Ping site) and your son will have the best starter set he could find - and he may just play them for years to come.  You know, you're Ping.  PS - I had been planning on a new set of irons just because but when I tuck one up close from 100 or 150 yards, I forget about it.  I am shopping putters tho.    
    • Seconding this. Pretty much any OEM's game improvement or super game improvement from a couple model years ago will give him the performance and forgiveness he needs for a solid price. Just make sure you do your research on the ebay seller. I've had good success with it, but if you are more skeptical, there are plenty of second-hand retailers online.
    • It's up to the Committee to decide, in advance, and publish for the competitors, what the rules are around handicaps.  What any of us thinks is "right" should be overruled by the specific rules of the competition.  Now if I'm on that Committee, I would want to use the handicap as of the date of the match, but I'm not the one making the decisions.
