Do You Use Your Own Score Card?

Recommended Posts

I have a few score cards I have made that I use quite often. They are not like the score cards you get from the course as they allow for more info to be marked off. One I use most of the time has 100 entries available in groups of 25. Each number represents a stroke. Each number allows for three entries. Distance (needed), Club (chosen) , and Outcome (short, long, left, right, penalty etc....)  . The 4 groups of 25 entries allow for me to fold the paper into about the same size as typical score card. This score card is basically a history of play for me. I have given away 100s of  copies of this  to folks I have met on the course over the years.

The other two are like a regular course scorecard, but I just check off the what happened on each hole.

I have tried to upload these critters, but they don't show up right. They are probably 15+ years old.

Anyone else use their own score cards?

I always mark down GIR, FWs, and the number of putts I take for each hole as well as indicate which way I missed on my scorecard. I just use up the extra lines on the scorecard instead of creating my own. Seems like a good idea though as a consistent scorecard format would make it a lot easier to file them. For me, it is merely a tool for encouraging a mental awareness of what I'm doing but a new format might encourage me to actually calculate the trends in my game.

Nope. The only thing I write on a scorecard is the score for each hole and the ongoing status of whatever match we're playing.....because we're always playing a match.

I use the scorecards at the course, and when I play with a strange foursome I put all kinds of other information about the hole on it.

The last two rounds I have been putting down this per hole:

Score,

Putts,

Fairway status,

Gir status

Driving distance (when applicable)

First putt accuracy est. the number of feet (if applicable)

Golf Logix can track a whole lot more stuff, like FW bunkers, pitches, chips etc.

I use the course scorecard, but I take up most of it. I track fairways hit (and the direction of my misses), greens in regulation, and putts per hole along with my score. That takes up the top four rows, so in the bottom two I have a row for +/- to par (easier than adding the hole by hole) and any notes on the hole. I just put it all in the Golfshot app to keep track of the stats over time. I'm pretty happy because, so far, I've been averaging 61% GIR and 1.95 putts per GIR. My scrambling is an abysmal 40% though.

Would love to get a copy.. Anyway you can scan it or something? If you have a soft copy via email would be cool too!

I use the golfshot app. It gives you GIR, scrambling, sand saves, fairways hit, putts and scoring. It will also give you an analysis per club, but I don't bother to input that data. Much easier than devising your own scorecard/spreadsheet.

I've used a bit of this and a bit of that. When I played a lot and played serious rounds, I used an app. It made the job quick and gave me a good history. I could also put in FIR, GIR, putts, U&D; etc., which is good if you want to improve overall or just enjoy statistics.

Nowadays, I tend to play more practice rounds without keeping score, but when I do, I usually keep track of where am I relative to par, from hole to hole.

    • I think providing people dont turn up in speedo's and flip flops it shouldnt matter what you wear. If im at the range i'll generally be in Jeans/Joggers, t-shirt and trainers. Personally i dont understand the guys that turn up in their full gear to hit a basket of balls then go home, but each to their own i suppose. The way i see it is the range isnt just for dedicated golfers. Its a place for people to try it out, to have a bit of fun or, in my case, to spend some time with my 4 year old that doesnt involve staying in building train sets (fun but nice to get out). If someone turns up and they are not dressed to your liking or sound like they are having "too much fun" just ignore them and focus on what you are doing. I find it actually helps me when there is noise next to me as if i can hit good shots with a group of lads laughing next to me then not much can distract me on the course.
    • Zero.   I can't remember ever coming closer than 3 feet in about 40 years of off and on golf.  I guess I need to improve my iron play. 
    • And dawn of the big day has arrived at the Talamore Golf Resort. Or it will soon, anyway. Sand Trappers everywhere are rising to catch sight of the first scoreboard of the day, so we won't disappoint you and make you wait any longer than necessary. Teams for the morning foursomes are set.   I was able to zip south in time to catch the end of dinner at the Carolina Hotel at Pinehurst, as the coaches squared off to announce the teams. Sorry no group photo yet, and just a candid, but you can already sense that the East has more gray hair, but the West needs to do more stretching! I'll refrain from posting pics yet about some of the bling the teams received last night, but let's just say we should all hope for a tie in this Newport Cup match, to be decided by a sudden death fashion show: the all-red Pizza Delivery men vs the Jet Blue flight attendants.   
    • Drop and stop is realistic for a 15 handicap, as is sucking it back for a +1 handicap... I haven't updated my profile handicap in a while... But we'll go with I'm in the middle... Can I suck it back? Ummm... Maybe a foot or so... Am I a drop and stop sort of guy... More or less. But in this next phase of my game, I'm playing shots that are much more consistent than what I was hitting before. If I miss a green from 150 yards and in now, it's not by very much... I played 27 holes yesterday, I did only hit 9/27 greens in regulation, however, almost all of my missed greens were nGIR, and most of those we within 10 feet of the edge. It's definitely better than it was with this way of playing shots from 150 yards and in, because with my driving distance most of my iron shots into par-4s on my home course are from 150 yards and in. "GIR is King, nGIR is Queen."- Lowest Score Wins.  As a side note, that is only tangentially related. (It's a slightly different skill)  My pitches and chips have started to get better, since I purposely started playing the shorter swing shots.
    • Maybe you should be honest with him.   Give him all the reasons you cited in your post.  Tell him you won't play with him unless he gets some decent clubs and takes a few lessons.   Also, for the sake of all of us, tell him he gets a maximum of 8 swings per hole, or maybe a maximum of double-par, and then he has to pick up and go to the next hole, because he's holding up everyone else on the course.
