It's Labor Day.....how many rounds so far?

Recommended Posts

David in FL    1,520

I'll start with an honest disclaimer......I know how fortunate I am to live where I can play year 'round and this is NOT to show off, or rub anyone's nose in it.  I'm just curious.

Labor Day is now behind us and since one of my goals for the year was to keep my rounds up over 100, I wanted to see where I was year to date.   83 rounds so far, so I'm on track for a good 120+ for 2013.  You'd think with that much golf, I'd be better......

So, where are you?  How many rounds so far?  Are you pleased with the quantity and quality of your play so far this year?  How much longer before your season starts to wind down?

Damn, I can't believe it's September already.....

I've played about eight full rounds of 18.

I might be as high as 13 rounds if you count random nines here and there.

Just logged in to see what I have posted on ghin and to date 57 rounds. Much of it 9 hole combined scores. Would have play more but I see some fairly big gaps between dates back in Feb-Apr when the weather was bad. I'll play right up to the end of the year here in CO. Last year I played on Thanksgiving and NYE. The only day the courses closed when it wasn't due to weather was Xmas.

51 rounds, only counting 18 hole rounds which I played at least 13 holes.  I am on pace for 75 rounds, weather permitting.  I wish I could have played more.    Quality wise, I had ups and downs but learned to "play" more relaxed, and enjoy.

Last year when I had all-you-can-play-green-fee yearly membership, I played 142 rounds.   I won't probably repeat that unless I quit my job for senior PGA tour card.

About 80 rounds so far in 2013, converting any two 9 hole sessions into a "full" round.

Our season in SE Michigan can be anywhere from 12 months (like the winter of 2011-12 that never was) to about 7 months when we have a late spring and early snow.

My playing frequency has been great.  The results of my play have been a bit lower in quality than hoped but there is still time.  A giant "bucket list" check off occurred when I spent a week in Scotland playing courses around St. Andrews, including the Old Course.

Generally we will play into November.  I consider a reasonable end to the season as Thanksgiving weekend but at times golf ends earlier and or goes further into late autumn.

Had a banner year this year (for me).  31 rounds so far, as well as 10 or so 9-hole rounds at the local par 3 course.

And thanks to the lack of a golf "season" in these parts, hopefully I can get up in the 40's before the year is out.

I may be around 20 rounds played. Which is probably a good reason why my game never really improved all that much. I play more consistently in the mid/upper 40's instead of one round mid 40's and one round in low 50's. Next year I am giving myself a very strict goal of being in the 80's before this time and having at least 50 ish rounds played with a "legal" handicap of at max 17. If I don't meet those modest goals I'll probably give up being "serious" about golf and only play on rare occasions.

We are around 25, on courses that are a par 68 to 72. With another maybe 20, 9 hole par 26 to par 36. That is about as much as we can do with work, school and scouts.

People assume that teaching Pros play a lot of golf. Not so. It's gotta be awfully tough trying to keep your own game in some semblance of shape when you spend all of your time helping other people with theirs!

I have played 10 rounds with 30 trips to the driving range! Would like to play more and I just discovered a course close to work that has decent 9-hole rates ... so hopefully that number can increase.

I always forget you guys are able to play all year.  I gotta move somewhere warm.

...... So, where are you?  How many rounds so far?  Are you pleased with the quantity and quality of your play so far this year?  How much longer before your season starts to wind down?

I checked GHIN and I've got 42 posted there so far. I also play a skins game most weeks that I normally do not post because the nature of that game prompts me to take a stab at "hero shots" that I normally would not (for good reason, they usually do not pay off!) but a par is pretty much only good for an atta'boy. And I play a few nines a month fooling around and just practicing that do not get posted. So I don't have a firm number, but I'm getting my share of time on the course and the range. Yes, I am pleased in general with quality and quantity, my game has improved markedly this year, and by the grace of good fortune I was born in Florida and through good planning I've never left, so I've got four months of the year to go! :-P

As they say, if you love to play golf, don't get into the golf business.

wow, 100 sounds expensive

year to date - 42 based on the tracking website I use.  So there might be a couple few extras that I didn't load.

15 rounds of 9

27 rounds of 18

and it seems like I'm playing a TON.  I can't imagine 100 unless I was a member somewhere.

Lots of range time, including winter in the new indoor place - hours and hours of it.  I just like to hit sometimes.

    • There are plenty of threads here about putting.    3 keys to better putting If you want to work on the starting line, buy a metal yard stick with a hole on one end and practice putting the ball down the yard stick.   
    • Honestly, I feel like I'm hitting a little of everything.  When at the range off mats, I tend to graze the bottom which I can tell from the feedback of the rubber tee's.  When on the course/grass, I tend to top the ball.  I have noticed my heel shots as the ball direction is unmistakable.  Off to the left, sharp and extremely short and low.  I hit far better shots with my Hybrids than almost any club.  Then my wedges, then irons.  Driver, the least well.  I think I'm trying too many setup and swing techniques almost trying too many corrections.  I over pivot a bit and struggle with stable feet tending to come up on the ball of my left foot.  I played baseball for nearly 14 years so I'm trying to keep from feeling like I'm stepping (or want to step). So, my next real question... is it worth it to try and replace the shafts if the manufacturer ignores me?  I never really hit the GBB as I'd just bought it.  The XR16 definitely felt the best, went the longest and gave me the most confidence.  The Ping G SFT, I also didn't hit more than a few times but I enjoyed it.  I'll try and post some pics of the leftovers and driver murder scene.  "Driver-homicide" is going to be my new nickname.   Thanks Lihu!  
    • Hello guys I've always struggle on short putts and it is why I'm here. Well, when I'm witha shot putt, I realized that my backswing is not Ok, I do not feel that the line stays correct, it seens that my hand shake. There is something that I can do? Change my putting grip?   Thanks
    • Single-digit in two years is ambitious for me, but I'll see you guys in 2021.  
    • I had a buddy film a few drives during my round yesterday.  I am still diving down towards the ball with my head.  No idea why this is still happening, but it does not feel as if it is happening while I am swinging.  Plane seems a little better, but still very erratic. I got the first one off the toe. Started right and stayed right.  The second one was better contact but pulled left.
