Competition is fun! Golf is a game, games are competitive in nature. It's not necessary to play for a bunch of money or anything like that, but I think you may have trouble finding too many people that don't want to play for anything. I literally cannot remember the last round I played where something wasn't on the line.
Top 6 in season long points would determine who gets into the final day playoff so season long results still matter....but the past gets thrown out on the final day (same as in any other sports' playoff final) and it's winner take all. Would make for way better TV IMO.
No you're still giving bad advice. Heal thyself.
Dude, you just won't give up. Even the best players in the world from 10-20 yards only average getting up and down 67% of the time (190 players). 75% is the best from this distance on the tour. And from the rough the best player on the tour gets up and down about 69% of the time and the average is about 57%. None of us practice that often to be as good as these guys on a consistent basis. And if you are,you must be the best short game guy ever.
It is just better to learn to hit the ball with the full swing to lower your score. If it takes you 5 shots to get near a par 4 and then you're so good around the green that you get up and down for a 7. It makes sense, to everyone but you, to get the ball closer to the green in fewer swings to improve your chances of lowering your score. You still should practice the short game, but the full swing (long game) is far more important to lowering your score. But then again you can knock and 8 or 9 iron inside of 20 feet all day from 150 yds, so you have that going for you as well.
