I looked quickly and didn't see a PDF. What's the URL?

http://www.goosecreekgc.com/scorecard.asp Whoops, when you click to enlarge I'm used to it opening in another window as a PDF or the like ... These guys are different and I made an incorrect assumption.

Yes, @turtleback we'd love to have you!  Join us!!!!  Not counting you yet, here is the updated list considering the "events" of this morning ... @iacas

Ok so for future outings remember the point of this stuff is to play in different groups with different people

Yeah, that's just a PNG.

I'm inordinately pumped about this tournament.  Never played Goose Creek before, so I've fully been wasting time at work Google Earthing the course and noting some yardages and possible strategies for each hole.  Obsessing about my golf swing even more than normal this weekend...

On a side note, what's the motivation for the value of the cutoff between blue and white tee assignments?  My only experience with non-TST tourneys is approximately 6 weeks as a member of one of my local course's men's club, and there the flights (which also determine tee selection) are simply chosen so the number of players in each flight (and thus at each tee assignment) is 50/50 or 33/33/33, depending on whether there's two or three flights.  Obviously that's not the rule that was used here, so I'm just wondering the motivation.

Lihu and hacker101 are coming with their kids, so I put them on the white tees.

Then jefkve is a high enough handicap index that I felt he might want to play the white tees.

If someone wishes to change tees, I'll make the change if it's reasonable (i.e. it would be unreasonable for a single digit to want to play the white tees).

All right, I can live with that!

@Pakoh has 16.6 listed in his profile for whatever reason, and @GolfSwine has 6.2.

So unless they give more information, then, here goes:

I'm a newby to these events so maybe everyone else already knows this?  Why are the handicaps lower than the indexes, when the slopes (assuming the 127 and 124 are slopes) are greater than 113?  Normally a slope in excess of 113 would result in a course handicap that is higher than the index.

We give you 80% of your handicap because it's a team event and we throw away the highest score. If we didn't do this, the highest handicap teams would win disproportionately often.

Are you guys getting rain down there?  We're getting pelted up here in NorCal and it isn't supposed to stop anytime soon.

Don't go asking for any of our water or anything :-P

Guys, the weather is jumping from mid 60's today, to mid 70's tomorrow, to mid 80's Tuesday! And it's supposed to stay that way all through the weekend. Sunday is supposed to be 82 with a 0% chance of rain. Winter, where are you? Edit: nope, no rain right now. Just a few clouds is all.

Well, that works for me.  Good time to get away from NorCal.  Won't be able to practice though, which sucks.  Honestly I'm only coming down for a release and getaway from work/school.  Hell, I'm at work right now!  And studying when I get home.  I don't expect to play well.

Maybe I can get one of those "haven't played in a long time beginner's luck" rounds :-)

Paging @hacker101 - what is the handicap index for you and your son?

Cool, we're going in first @hacker101!

I am sorry guys, between Chruch, work, work, work and golf I have not been on the internet much.

Put us down for the following.

Hacker 15

Justin 18

Sorry this is my best guess at this point. It seems my game has gone south these last few weeks/month. :cry:

I honestly wish I could be going :D

Stay tuned ... we've been pretty consistent with these for the last year or more - having one basically every season - so just look out for our Spring outing coming in April or May (ish).

    • I know her! Her name is Karen. 😄
    • I heard somewhere a long time ago that good players always put their putter and driver together.  Well, doing that didn’t make me a better golfer but now I’m self conscious about that.
    • Hi Cammy - I’m not an instructor, but just noticed a couple things. At the top, it looks like you may be pulling down a bit with the hands without the body weight shifting forward. And also standing up a bit just before impact with the ball. Just a thought. Others may have better advice than me. I’m learning too. Great job though, considering how long you have been playing. Keep it up! 
    • The main issue with golf is time.  When my job and other responsibilities allowed me to play at least once per week and practice in between, I could play consistently in the high 80s.  But as a weekend golfer it’s tough to maintain enough consistency to stay in the low 90s.  Adding age to the equation makes maintaining consistency even more difficult.  It’s still a fun game if you manage your expectations realistically.
    • I have to use single vision lenses only for golf. However, my distance vision lenses do not leave the ball blurry at address.  If your distance vision prescription leaves the ball blurry at address, you might need progressives or bifocals specifically for golf.  I can’t imagine that your reading prescription would leave you with a clear view at 6 feet.  But I’m no optometrist.
