Do You Use Your Own Score Card?

9 posts in this topic

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.

    • 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.
