90 at Park Ridge. I missed 7/8 putts from 5-7 feet. Most days, my mind is just not into putting unless there is something at stake. It is atrocious. I like Park Ridge a lot because there are six par 5s and four of them are only guarded by elevation. Just a lot of fun to go it on these holes. Hurricane last week, then got like a 95 or something at an easy course the week before and a scramble the week before that where I could not do anything right. My swing is going decidedly backwards atm.
I believe I’m playing the right tees. I carry a driver around 215, so I’m closer to the purple level. I find that I enjoy the game most when I play between 6000 and 6100, but I’ll occasionally play tees measuring 6500-6600, just for a bit of an extra challenge. I usually play the whites at my home course, which are 6063 yards.
I’m playing a course Wednesday where the blue tees are 6474, so I figured I’d try that just for the heck of it. The whites are 5875, and there’s a combo tee that’s just under 6200. Whenever I’m playing a course that’s new to me, unless it’s a tournament, I’ll play the whites, mainly because I don’t want to be viewed as one of those players who might hold people up.
I voted 31-50% of people play tees too long for them. I’ve seen players on adjacent holes dribbling drives off the blue tees, twice recently.
