2013 - What sort of golf tournaments do you play in?

6 posts in this topic

A couple questions for everyone to consider answering:

1. What sort of tournaments do you play in?

2. How many tournaments did you play in for 2013?

3. What is the field size for your typical events?

4. Best finish or how many wins in 2013?

1. I am 61 years old so most but not all events are for seniors (often defined as 50 or 55).  Most of the events are handicap events with our "club without real estate" and I play a couple flighted events sponsored by our city (Ann Arbor).

2. I played in 14 events.  12 were 1-day.  One was 2-day and one was a 3-day event.

3. Our "club without real estate" typically has around 100 players flighted into 4 flights.  The City events are about 150 (Men's Championship) and 90 (Senior Championship)

4. 2013 was a tough year.  I tied for 1st on a net basis in one event (tied for 5th gross) but otherwise was just hanging around trying to grab a skin or finish somewhere in the net money.

I am not good enough to consider any higher level state events; I would just be canon fodder for the scratch players.

How about everyone else?

Indoor Archery (Fita or USA Archery).

I need to get better to join some local club and start playing. Maybe this coming year, for fun.

If you're cannon fodder, I would be live bait !!       I started too late in life - play golf for the exercise and personal enjoyment / challenge of seeing how good I can get with the body I have left ...

Playing 100+ rounds per year is quite an achievement already!

I would say you can play the local or club tournaments without any problems, now.

Thanks for the encouragement ... I'm going to really put in more effort practicing next year (rather than playing so much) & if I can get my hcp down a bit, I would like to try some local tournaments (I've always competed in everything else I've done ... tournament bass fishing, 3 gun pistol shooting - so once I get more comfortable with golf & get a better handle on the rules, I could see myself entering tournaments - just for the fun of competition)

Played my 1st one last weekend, a two day event on Del Monte & Spanish Bay.  90% handicap event, not a serious one.  Did well on the 1st day, and crashed and burned at Spanish Bay (I have a feeling I am not the only one).   The final is being tallied but I am afraid to look at the result.   Still, me and missus had a blast.

I plan to enter select club tournaments in 2014.   If playing in tournament turns out to be  too stressful, I will go back to my usual playing for fun ways.

    • If true, kind of a telling article about his prepping for a job he supposedly wants.
      What will this mean if he gets the job, does he read briefings or will he only pay attention if the briefings are told with shadow puppets? each candidate will get at least 1 softball question.
      DT will bring up Hillary's email and Benghazi issue.
      HRC will bring up DT's Trump U!

      DT will say "the best" & "great" many, many times.
      HRC will use very specific names and policies, DT will counter will ripping his shirt open and screaming "I am great and huuuuge"!!!!!!

      I think in reality DT setting his sights low will win him the night. even if he does poorly, which he would not admit to, he can indicate that he is not a "career politician". 
      I am wondering how long it will take DT until he takes a jab at Bill, seeing as DT is unaware of his own moral and fidelity issues. I anticipate the debate turning into a POOP show, by the 3rd question!
    • I didn't vote. Not enough of an issue as explained. I have shared my views on slower than faster play on this site many times before. No need to get into that it again. 
    • Possibly your preferred shot shape is the draw? Just guessing from your last post. What you might do is get some face impact decals for irons and go to the range. After a brief warm-up, hit 10 shots each with 5i, 7i, and 9i. If the impact points are all over the face (which I doubt given your handicap), you might have a swing wobble. If the points cluster in one area, and its away from center face, you might need a tweak to your irons, such as shaft length or lie angle. Also, launch monitor session could give you specific data to combine with impact decal patterns.  If you have clean hit problems mainly with the 4i and 5i, you might consider softstepping these shafts. This would bring the FCM down to 4.9 for the two clubs (just a touch under 5.0 which is theoretically "average" R-flex), and would help with launch. Any other ideas from low-HDCPers? @Club Rat?
    • And this, boys and girls, is a good example of why we continue to have pace of play issues....
    • Safe to say firing his putting coach was the right thing to do, probably should of done it 6 months earlier.   1 2 May 2010 Quail Hollow Championship 72-73-66-62=273 −15 4 strokes  Phil Mickelson 2 19 Jun 2011 U.S. Open 65-66-68-69=268 −16 8 strokes  Jason Day 3 4 Mar 2012 The Honda Classic 66-67-66-69=268 −12 2 strokes  Tom Gillis,  Tiger Woods 4 12 Aug 2012 PGA Championship 67-75-67-66=275 −13 8 strokes  David Lynn 5 3 Sep 2012 Deutsche Bank Championship 65-65-67-67=264 −20 1 stroke  Louis Oosthuizen 6 9 Sep 2012 BMW Championship 64-68-69-67=268 −20 2 strokes  Phil Mickelson,  Lee Westwood 7 20 Jul 2014 The Open Championship 66-66-68-71=271 −17 2 strokes  Rickie Fowler,  Sergio García 8 3 Aug 2014 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational 69-64-66-66=265 −15 2 strokes  Sergio García 9 10 Aug 2014 PGA Championship (2) 66-67-67-68=268 −16 1 stroke  Phil Mickelson 10 3 May 2015 WGC-Cadillac Match Play 4 & 2  Gary Woodland 11 17 May 2015 Wells Fargo Championship (2) 70-67-61-69=267 −21 7 strokes  Patrick Rodgers,  Webb Simpson 12 5 Sep 2016 Deutsche Bank Championship (2) 71-67-66-65=269 −15 2 strokes  Paul Casey 13 25 Sep 2016 Tour Championship 68-70-66-64=268 −12 Playoff  Kevin Chappell,  Ryan Moore Look at the dates on his wins.  It looks like when he goes on to win a tourney he usually follows it up with one or two more shortly after.  Interesting....
