You're ripping guys who get excited about breaking 80 on a course rated 68.4 or something similar, but the reality is that very few of us play courses such as what you describe (72.8 rating, 131 slope) on a regular basis. Maybe you or I wouldn't be happy about a 79 on a 68.4 rated layout, but why do you feel the need to rain on someone's parade? Hey, none of us should be judging the merits of someone else's rounds. If they're thrilled, I'm happy for them. You should be, too.

I hold a course record on a course that's par 70 with a 70.0 rating and a 127 slope. Should I be embarrassed because the rating and slope don't meet your standards? 

 

Bingo!  I shot my PB on a course with a 69.4/120 rating, but as far as I'm concerned, one over par 73 is still just one over par.

You are making a real ass of yourself lately. You are a non-golfer if you can not treat fellow golfers with the respect due to them, regardless of their score or the CR of the course on which they sh

Not me! A golf ball with a demonstrated affinity for the water has a horrible character flaw that cannot be changed.  It should never be trusted again!

I made a 12 on a par-3 once......with NO PENALTY STROKES!

Stella Artois???????

Girly man

 

JUST KIDDING.  I don't know why when I read Stella Artois Hans and Frans popped in my head though.  

Yeah, but Stella is just for fancy courses and I don't do fancy.

Personally I think it tastes kind of skunky, same with Heineken and Becks.  I like craft beers, especially a nice porter or stout but if going more main stream brews I will take a Yuengling, Bass, Guinness (Stout) and occasionally, *gasp* can't believe I am going to admit to this, if it is really hot out and sunny, I'll drink a Miller Lite because beers with more body to them seem to be just a bit too heavy.  At that point it's more like drinkin a sodie pop.

I apologize then, but really all I was saying was why @Buckeyenut would want to know and probably why others omit it, Also I'm not trying to impose any standard on course difficulty to anyone, play wherever you want I don't care.

I thought this was LOL!

Even the not-so-fancy courses are carrying it on tap now up here in the Boston area. After buying Bud, they started pushing it.

Stella is OK when you've just played 18 in 90F weather. It is refreshing but not my first choice as a normal draught. After playing 18 on Tuesday in 55F weather, we went to a bar that had Newcastle on tap. That was nice.

Wait!  I did golf in the spring, summer, fall and bowling in the winter for 30 years! :-)

Yeah but you didn't mention that Florida winter is a cruel and hard 5 weeks with some occasional frosty ground.  Played Chi Chi Rodriguez yesterday morning, fun little track.

Chi Chi's can be fun.  Isn't that a par 69 or something?  Been a long time since I've played there.  Played a scramble there back in the 90's.

Yes it is a par 69. Has some holes that make you think, lots of doglegs. It was a good time.

I said that jokingly because since my son took to bowling, I've become a non-golfer when it comes to winter golf.   Today was sunny and 66 with light winds.........and I bowled!!  LOL

    • So this is my new “top” of the backswing.    From the hands position and the shaft position I feel like this is somewhere I really like to end up. The shaft is pointing much more towards the target and that’s something that seems to suit my physiology. I still need to get my hips deeper to make sure I can then push back and rotate more through the swing but that’s another element to work on. This position is definitely a position of power for me. The swing caddy might not be the best tool to hone in your carry distances but as I tested it against Trackman the ball speed is almost always very close (+- 1mph) so that’s the data I’m looking at and today I was getting close to 170 mph ball speed with my driver. I will be working on the speed, my general strenght and losing weight over the winter and I also decided that this winter I will hopefully be able to use the trackman enough to really hone in my pitching from the impact/spin control/carry distance. I will be doing this until the end of the season as well but I will dedicate winter for another leap like I did this year and hopefully I’ll be breaking 80 regularly next season (hoping to break it once this season but it might be too optimistic). 
    • Day 33 (29 Jul 21) - 1st time playing a "new" to me course, about an hour from the house.  This was a great day to work on course management as I did not "know what to expect".  Got there early enough to spend a few moments on the putting green - which was key as this course has the best greens I have played all year.  Ball rolled true and it took a good touch to not over shoot the holes.  Back to the course management - heavy rains yesterday made the course "cart path only".   Having to think through the next shot and approaches made this the most rewarding round in a long time. 
    • If anyone wants to see GG of my rounds at SV and Lawsonia, here they are. Mammoth Dunes and Lac La Belle did not upload correctly (probably because they are newer courses and not yet in GG). https://www.gamegolf.com/player/DeadManUofM/round/3081710 https://www.gamegolf.com/player/DeadManUofM/round/3081711 https://www.gamegolf.com/player/DeadManUofM/round/3081705 https://www.gamegolf.com/player/DeadManUofM/round/3081706
