9 holes before work + 9 holes after work= A Legit 18?

6 posts in this topic

In these cold winter months I've fantasizing about playing this summer whenever I could and I had a question I thought you guys could answer. I'm probably going to be the director of a summer camp at my school which is 5 minutes from one of my favorite golf clubs (Pelham Bay/Split Rock in the Bronx.) I definitely intend on doing some early bird back 9's and then getting in at least the front 9 during twilight on the same day. My question: Does any rule prevent me from considering this as a legit 18 hole round?

It may be considered a combined round on your handicap card, but it will equal the same handicap number so who cares.

For a handicap score entry its not necessary to play a full round, you can play a partial round with out having to make up the remainder. for example you could play 6 holes and count it towards a round of 18 for score. Let's say you are handicap of 12 and you play 6 holes in no particular order or quantity of par holes, let's say after 6 holes you have to leave for an emergency, you are 5 over par with one double bogie on a par four hole. You can record an 18 hole round as 15 over par for handicap purposes.

That's untrue. I believe to post an 18-hole round you need to complete 13 or more holes. 7 holes for 9-hole rounds.

a. Scores To Post

To post a 9-hole score, the player must play 7 to 12 holes, and at least 7 holes must be played in accordance with the principle of the Rules of Golf.  To post an 18-hole score, the player must play at least 13 holes in accordance with the principles of the Rules of Golf. (See Decisions 5-1a/3 through 5-1a/5 .)

And even then you do not account for the missing holes in the way @Spitfisher described.  It has nothing to do with how you played the holes you played.  Missing holes are assigned scores equal to par plus any stroke(s) you are allowed due to handicap.

(I know YOU know this Erik, but I am adding it to help counter the rest of the misinformation.)

As to the OP's original question, just post both scores as nine hole scores and the handicap service you use will combine them.

I mis-spoke ( wrote ) on this matter of partial rounds for handicap scores. I knew it could be done once a pattern had been set for x amount of holes. just had my numbers screwed up, thank you above for the clarification.

    • Didn't know if I could mention it by name, but we know who. Many people share this experience.They promise a check instead of credit to use. Send in my clubs 2 months ago. They were accepted and approved 6 weeks ago. I emailed about the check 2 weeks ago. "Oh, it's on the way tomorrow".  I will call tomorrow.  However, they either have a cash flow problem, or they wait to sell your clubs before paying you out.  Said to see because the umbrella companies are awesome. Just be honest and tell me it may take two months
    • Here in USA, the KBS Tour S-flex shafts go for about $27 each new. If you get AP2 714 model, a 4-PW (?) reshaft would require $189 + tax to get shafts. Add $15 per club for shaft swap, and $10 per for new grips, and it's about $365 + tax. The KBS Tour stiff would be a few grams lighter and slightly stiffer than the S300 which often come as stock for the AP2. OTH is on target, consider this too.
    • I had a big long post going and lost it. The game of golf has only one set of rules per continent. The equipment used is well defined as far as legal, or illegal. The other sports you mentioned are dealing more with different age groups, physical sizes, and skill levels. Sure, golf has players of all ages, sizes, and skill levels too. Golf also has one set of rules, and one playing field with differences in length. Difference is baseball has tee ball. Football has different leagues based on age groups, and it's the same  for basketball. These sports cater to the needs of their players based on their age groups, and skill levels. This also includes the playing fields, and equipment they use. So in that respect I have no problem with what other sports are doing. 
    • 2/23: Feeling encouraged. I think I've got the (worse than usual) weight-shift/head movement mystery solved, or at least "identified" with a much better understanding of it (and a confirmation that it's always been there ). Getting better at the process I think...(1) noticing a problem but not knowing the why, (2) Slowing down and checking keys 1-3, and (3) "going back to my first lesson" so to speak by reviewing old video and my swing posts, and slowly "backing up" from the problem to try and identify the (chain of) cause(s). Today's practice: 10 minutes of good ol' wall drill, with original focus of getting my right hip away from the wall but with added attention paid to my upper body and (actually getting some) secondary axis tilt. Several slow and medium-speed reps of this pausing for feel and thinking about and practicing how I'd transition into the downswing. Then 6-8 minutes outside... Just two "reps" of 3-4 minutes slow-motion back- and downswings (hip, axis tilt, weight shift (and resulting proper better club path ) and then an easy-swing full shot with my 56o. So I only hit two shots and both were perfect, high draws.
    • Cobra Bio Cell + set at 15 degrees I am very confident with this club.  My 4 iron goes about 190 and my 3h goes 200-210.  Anything more than that (in the 220-230 range) is this club.  I have hit some very accurate shots with it and feel very comfortable with it.  In the first round this season, I have plopped one from 225 out within 15 feet from the pin.  I may change my driver this year but I get the feeling this club along with my hybrid (also a Bio Cell +) will be around for a long time
