Got them.

Got it.

Sorry I screwed up I meant broke 90 not 80.  Wishful thinking I guess.  I don't want to get an award I haven't earned.

I've had a hole in one on the 6th Hole Springwood Country Club NSW Australia 27th November 1999 in a tournament.

Had 4 eagles on par 5s and 2 on par 4s.

Broke 80 about 40 times .

Broke Par twice.

Got them all. Not the broke 80 one because the broke par one supersedes it.

Congrats!

Psst @iacas ;-)

I don't know how much that counts. I'll let @Dave325 answer that… he's in Cinci and they're out of season. I don't think courses are open.

Fair point.

It appears you may have missed @WUTiger's post.

Thanks! Some courses stay open as long as the weather permits, not too wet or frost on the greens. My course is more rural and is open all year as long as th conditions are good. Saturday was a busy day with 72 degrees, sunny. We set a record here that tied an all time record set back in 1891!  I hope we get a lot more of these.

Cool.Strange coincidence my first born son was born on Wednesday 27th November 2002. Three years to the day on my first hole in one.

Okay, I gave it to you.

- Broke 100

- Hole-in-One (and eagle, then, I guess)

- LSW (you got that one already)

Got them. Eagle is for non-hole-in-one eagles only.

I broke 80 three times last year if that counts.

All set!

    • Day 36 (01 Aug 21) - More work on swing tempo focusing on getting a consistent 3:1 tempo.  
    • The above is the first I've heard of booster shots.  Hopefully I find a place to get one that doesn't involve over a half hour's drive to a city named Corona like my first two shots.
    • and, quoting the above: The line of best fit for the data of GIR vs score is 95 - 2 * GIR.  That's probably where @reidsou's number came from.   Note that, even if we treat it as the standard goal (I agree with you, as you'll see in a moment), an average 11-GIR round probably has one or two birdies thrown in, and I'd bet that most of those missed greens in such a round (again, for an average 11-GIR round) are probably very much near-GIR.  That having been said, there are some of us, such as the original poster on this thread and I, whose long game is such that more than seven GIR isn't unheard of (which that formula would "predict," if we use it to predict at least, a round in the 70s) but who still score in the 80s.  I even recently had a round with 9 GIR and a score of 90 -- which is why 95 - 2 *GIR isn't meant to predict any individual's score, but does still highlight the importance of GIR and ball striking. Which brings me to my next point, which is also @Shorty's next point:  yeah, 50% chipping and putting is not the way to go, certainly not long term.  Maybe with the goal of getting those traits to about an average 20-handicapper's level (without sacrificing approach shot strength), and then using the 15/20 time productively in future weeks to improve on them.  The nice thing about chipping and putting is that there is some low hanging fruit as far as getting competent goes, especially if one is building off the sort of short game shots that come from missing fewer than half of one's GIRs.
    • The people I noticed who got vaxxed early, some of it was they knew an inside person, other than knowing exactly which sites to hit and when. Like people who were fully vaxxed by February/March.  
    • I flew over Cabot Cliffs and Southport and the rendering of these courses was really poor. Guessing you have to find the courses where specific work was done to make them look realistic.
