If you hit every fairway on the par 4's and 5's and you hit every green on the par 3's,,,,how many fairways did you hit during this round?

Is this a trick question?  Assuming it is not, count the number of par 4s & par 5s and there's the answer.

Very strange first post. I'm guessing he wants to count a GIR on a par 3 as a FIR but I see no reason why one would want to do that.

I feel like I should be using a No. 2 pencil for this answer.

Well, assuming a typical par 72, 14 fairways.  Now if one wants to count hitting fairways multiple times while playing a par 5, etc... the number could be larger but generally the statistic of "Fairways Hit" only counts tee shots on par 5's and par 4's.

All of them. Since we don't know how many par 4 and par 5 holes are on the course then an exact number would be an assumption.

All of them.  FIR aren't counted on par 3 holes, so however many par 4/5 holes there are is how many fairways you hit.

Assuming 4 par 3s, you would hit 14 fairways.

Funny thread....................all kidding aside, most people track fairways hit as a percentage!!     On a traditional championship course, 14 is standard, but not always the case.   My previous home course had 3-5s........3-4s....and 3-3s on the back.    A perfect day was hitting 13-13 fairways in spite of it being a par 72 course.

With that said, the thread originator game me a chuckle with how the question was asked..LOL

• 40-60 year old golfers, do I have a project for you! I was once-upon-a-time gifted a set of Founders Club forged blades, 2-PW. If I told you they had minimal wear, that would be an understatement. I hit two shots with the 2iron just because I had two. Otherwise, 7i to PW has maybe five shots of wear on the face. But that's besides the point.  When I was a 15 year old I had my first set of Ping Eye 2 and for.the life of me remember having Langert woods. Does anyone have a lead on a Langert Driver and 3 Wood? Particularly with a shaft I can only remember as being labeled the "Brush Stroke" shaft...  I could be totally wrong being that I do remember have a Founders Club driver back on those days  However I'm 95% certain it was a Langert head, with the "paint stroke" graphics on the shaft. If you happen to know of this club and live in the LA area, I'd love to buy it off you, after which I'll invite you to play at the club where I work and kick you butt with some 1990s ancient club technology...   Thank you.    Ben.
• Your hands move out and up rather than tracing inward. That’s all. A little of that is fine. You’re bordering on a bit too much IMO.  As I noted it does help you loop it back to the inside on the downswing.
• As a 20 I agree.  I'm 66 and still want to lower that number, bought the book and this winter (starting next week) am going to practice and get a few more yards on my full swing shots. My short game and putting are not going to get much better or better enough to give me 5 strokes. Maybe I have drunk the cool-aid , but I have seen that GIR is a way better place to lower my score. Th alternative is ok-play for GIR +1-and live with 91-95. Its closer to par than 102
• Unless they are bringing in hazards, OB, that is the proper strategy to achieve that goal. Being as close to the hole as possible on each shot without penalty will help greatly in breaking 90.    No offense but I think ‘ realistic’ could be replaced with ‘ easier.’ If you think you have the ability to improve your distance then that is the best way to start breaking 90 unless you have a glaring weakness with your short game. Which doesn’t appear to be the your case if you struggle to reach most par fours in regulation due to distance.
• vote was yes. My guess is that the non alcoholics all voted no. Drunk driving laws are like locks...they work for honest folks. If I drink, I will probably drink and drive...so I have stopped drinking. Once I black out all bets are off.
