How much does your score vary? I'm looking foward to the day when I no longer shoot over 100.

How low was your HC when 100 became a really bad day?

I scored a 90 today, second best score of my short time playing the game. Two weeks ago I scored a 108, that's 18 strokes, OUCH. 110 is my really really bad day now and I'm a 19.1 HC.

What is a typical spread in a players score at any given HC. I would think that as the HC goes down the scores become more consistant.

I had been playing for a little over a year when Last Oct. I changed my swing, I decided that for me to get to be a good golfer I had to find some fundementals to fall back on. So I studied the swing, read and reread a few books. My score went from the high 90s low 100s to the 140s. I got so bad, I was going in the wrong direction ,the  frustration and occasional thoughts of giving up the game started to make it not fun anymore, But I stuck with it and it seems to be paying off, I'm playing better than ever and when I'm not playing well, I know why.

Tiger is a +4.3? And he put up a 74 round this weekend. For some of the low or mid cappers here, when was the last time you shot 100?

I started playing in 1992 and my last score of 100 was in 1993.   There are many qualifiers though.......how often does one play, and how dedicated are they to the game?

I know people who've played a lifetime and a triple digit score is possible on any given day.  I've averaged well over 100 rounds a year over the past 20+ years, so I gained a lot of experience quickly.  It all boils down to putting in the work and or on course play.  Personally...I prefer putting in the "PLAY".   I haven't hit a ball on the range since 1995.  If I have time to hit golf balls, I go play.

Also, how difficult are the courses you play..?  Maybe consider taking a few lessons from a PGA pro to get your swing checked out.

If you are playing high rated courses,  maybe consider playing an easier course, and some par 3 exec courses to get your game to where youd like it../

Very bad day, on a very tight and long course.

    • The most esoteric golf tournament name ever...
    • Hey all, we are off and running.  My #1 shot a 79 at a collegiate course where we played the "white tee positions" for the majority of the tournament.  She was working on an exceptional round when she triple bogeyed hole 18.  She is real long off of the tee.  She is rock solid on the green.  Word is finally out there about her and I've worked hard at getting her name in front of college coaches.  After this showing (2nd) she has received 5 emails from 5 colleges this week.  Tonight, she shot par on our home course.  That is a great feat since our course was under water a week ago.  The fairways are not good and there is now a lot of standing water and GUR.  The next golfer was 5 shots behind and she is the #1 for a traditionally state ranked team.  Unfortunately, the rest of my team didn't do so well.  We play tomorrow again. It will be a major chore.  These mosquitoes are gigantic.  I have welts all over me and I sprayed a couple of times.  My #2 shot a 51 and looks like she has hives.  Her mosquito repellent can was  empty and I didn't know it until she was on hole #5.  She said that she was playing in a cloud of mosquitoes.  Tonight, I had my wife go buy new Deep Woods Off for every player.  We will put a can in each player's bag.  I've never seen anything like this but the corn fields around the course are all still under water.  Some Notes: My golfers have a hard time learning how to line up their shots.  We work on various things but it doesn't sink in for some time. My players have swings that are too long.  Most look like John Daley and so, I have to help them control that back swing better.  We spend a lot of time working on putting and we putted really well tonight.  The problem is, we didn't get off the tee box in good fashion due to alignment.  We have trouble everywhere and our course is very tight.  My softball player turned golfer as a favor to me will play as #4 tomorrow.  She has played golf for exactly 2 weeks now.  We have trees everywhere.  I have to teach all of my players how to hit stingers low and long.  I have three players that can do so and draw the ball doing it.  We shot a 205 as a team tonight.  That isn't very good.  Tomorrow, we have to do a lot better.  (We still beat a couple of teams since the conditions were so bad.  It was also 100+ heat index)
    • Yeah, the ex-marshal did go a bit overboard. Not sure if he would have really pulled the trigger or not, though. One thing for sure, the thief will think twice before attempting to steal club again. In fact, anyone reading the article might give it a second thought.   That's kind of true.
    • I apologize guys....heres the video
    • I just can't narrow it down to one or two items... Stihl MS 180 chainsaw - 12 years of heavy use and it simply won't die. Even dropped an ash tree on it years ago. I have a larger Stihl but prefer to use the little fella. It may be starting to lose compression. If so, I'll buy the same model as a replacement. Carvin solid body electric. Love this guitar. I also have a Guild Starfire IV Semi-hollow body electric which is a beautiful instrument. I play the Carvin a lot more. iMac (purchased in 2007). I'd love to get a new Mac Mini, but this thing is still running strong going on 10 years - even if 60 fps, 1080 video doesn't run very well on it. Firearms and reloading equipment. All of it. Have to get back into reloading. 2004 Silverado 1500. The Northern Winters have taken a toll on her. Stays parked a lot now but is still my all-time favorite vehicle.
