Another question...when posting 9 hole scores, I understand taht your next 9 hole score will combine..but how is that calculated? If you have two 9 hole scores, and they are from different courses, how do you figure the slope to use?

Each 9 actually has its own rating and slope so they will add the ratings for the two 9s and average the slope.

Here's the link to the USGA course rating and slope database.  All you need to know to enter your 9 hole scores individually.....

Do most clubs ever list the ratings? I am just working on mine myself and I can't see how to do this. I can average the slope, but I have no clue what to use for the ratings. When I look it up online they only list 18 hole ratings.

Nothing wrong with that!   Good buddy of mine had his first hole-in-one a year after we got him started playing.  He was a 32 hcp at the time.  Got his 2d one a year later.  Those are the only two that I've ever seen.  The rat bastard........

Have fun and enjoy what the game gives you, no matter what the silly number is!

Oh I am having fun and enjoying the process.  I do want to get better (started five months ago).

Time for my usual bi-monthly PSA reminder to update your profile hcp..... :-D

Unfortunately, I was only able to stay in the 4's for 2 revisions.  4.7 is sooooo much nicer than 5.0!

Better than normal ball-striking, but some real (and unusual) struggles around the green.  Don't cha just luv this game?

I don't want to say mine. I had a combined round that came in way too lower to be deserving of the cap computed.

Come on.....it is what it is.  Post it! :beer:

Why does that matter? If you're scores are legit they all fall in a certain range anyway. You likely have combined scores that are higher than usual. I know I do. If my anti-handicap was whacky I'd be concerned but the range of scores makes sense.

Okay. I am at 11.6. I have been bouncing back and forth from this and a 12.1.

I see someone took the liberty for me... It was right before... I didn't like to be judge by my cap ;)

I've been playing lousy for a while now, but my index hasn't changed in the last two revisions. If you don't play a lot the good scores stay in there to bite you. Plus, I guess, if you don't play a lot, you won't play well.

    • I haven't played Miami Shores in years. It's simply very far from my house and none of my usual playing partners are interested in the long drive. It's generally in good shape, but not known to be any kind of big challenge. Same with the 2 courses at CC of Miami. They were nice way back when, but it's way too far to drive on a weekday when i get to play. Some of the  public courses around Miami are Palmetto, in the SW area near me. It can stretch to play quite a bit longer than many other courses around here. Crandon, on Key Biscayne, is pricey, but well worth it. The natural beauty is a challenge to your concentration. The senior tour used to play an event there. Bayshore and Normandy are on Miami Beach and both are always in good shape. The Biltmore in Coral Gables is nice, but it's been redesigned since it's glory days when icons of the game played tournaments there. One of my favorite courses is Miami Springs, owned by the City of Miami. It's a very old course that's pretty much the same since the 30s through 50s when it hosted the Miami Open. In the clubhouse are a bunch of the trophies with the names of the winners over the years. Personally, I can't walk those fairways, (when I'm infrequently in a fairway), and wonder if Snead or Hogan stepped right where I am at that moment.
    • Going out on a limb but I think this happens when you don't have much 2ndary tilt. Right hand rolls over left much easier slamming the door close faster through impact. IDK, take this with a grain of salt but guys who start the DS with a mini squat get better secondary axis tilt, lead a bit longer with their right elbow and rotate better through impact. For me, if I try to rotate chest open through impact it actually stalls my hips. Not sure why it works the way it does but that's the exact opposite of what I intend to do (square shoulders and open hips through impact).   
    • Guys, it is not like I am opposed to a challenge.  In fact, it does make the game more interesting.  My concern is that badly maintained anything (bunkers, fairways, greens) make for unpredictable results.  I agree that rub of the green will happen even on good courses, but having any bounce or shot be unpredictable is stretching whether it is golf or roulette.  The difference is that on a good well maintained course, the percentage of funny bounces/results from a well struck shot are less

    • While I think Phil should not be playing because of all the reasons stated.  He is endorsing by his mere presence a government that has numerous instances of human rights violations.  As an elder statesman, so to speak, and future a HOF member of the PGA his presence does provide validation to the tournament. But he could have handled it so much better to avoid some of the flack he is getting. He could have used the same turning 50 logic and that he doesn't expect to have an opportunity to play the tournament again, (whether a true statement of not).  But the real response to put things into perspective would be to say... "Unlike the military weapons that have been sold to Saudi Arabia for decades, the products I use can't be used to kill Americans." I spent 30 years in the defense industry and it is pretty amazing what products are sold to foreign countries.  The products are not the latest products, or upgraded version, and lack sensitive USG capability, but they none-the-less they represent some of the best that America has made.  Unfortunately, allies can become enemies is short order.  None of this is directed to a specific administration, party, or to be interpreted as political in nature.  It has been done for years. What is the most amazing part of a Foreign Military Sale is that a branch of the service, say the Air Force, will negotiate a contract with a defense contractor using DOD acquisition regulations to the benefit of the foreign entity.  I was never able to get my head around hearing an Air Force officer tell Americans working for an American company that his job was looking out for the interests of the country of (insert name of country).  It was utterly mind boggling. So, while I agree Phil should not play, hitting a golf ball seems to pale in comparison. John
