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../

    • @Mr. Desmond, methinks I spoke too soon.  What do you want to bet, he IS back?  (under different screen name however). As in gambling, there are "tells". However, I will now take my leave and NOT engage.
    • I am not sure. Maybe 10-12 years old. I remember when I purchased them, I told myself they were the last  set of irons I would buy.  My fairway woods are probably 7, or 8 years old.  My putter is the great grand pa in my bag. I also have a couple of loose iron clubs that are pretty old.  Both my irons, and woods still serve me quite well. They are quality stuff. 
    • I'm interested in skytrak and other similar devices (more affordable at home indoor launch monitors).  I've been reading about them and watching reviews, and every single one seems to analyze the accuracy of the distance related numbers.  I don't care about distance when it comes to these devices, I only care about directional accuracy.  I want to know if I'm hitting the ball straight.     Are there reviews out there that I haven't found that focus on this aspect of these devices?
    • Avoid the greenside bunkers at all costs. If you end up in one, strongly consider playing at the center of the green instead of at the flag. And by strongly consider, I mean do that unless you're 100% sure you can pull off the shot without ending in another greenside bunker. 
    • This is pretty much what all teaching is based on.  The idea that changes in your alignments will make you a better player.   If a player comes in with either too strong or two weak a grip or a flying right elbow or a flat swing or an upright swing, the average teacher wants too change it.   I too believe there is certain things you can do to change your swing.  But I more importantly believe that a proper transition fixes a lot of little details.  I think most people would agree that tiger, jack, Sam Snead, Ben hogan, lee Trevino, and nick faldo are some of the best ball strikers and best winners of all time.   But Trevino had a really strong grip and hogan had a really weak one.  So any where in between will work.  Hogan had a really tucked elbow and jack had a flying elbow.  So anywhere in between will work.   Sam Snead had a pretty upright swing as did jack and tiger but hogan and Trevino both much flatter.  So anywhere inbetween will work. All these players do have one thing in common and that is a similar lower bodie transition
