So, we could only get 1-1/2 points this morning (out of the 4 points available) and we're now down 9 to 5. Can we win all the 4 points this afternoon (their time) to tie it up? I can't tell a lie: I think we'll be lucky to get 2 points. What happened to the strong team we were supposed to have?
We play a Master and US Open each year. Basically its an individual weekend tourny with you paired with a blind drawn pro who has made the cut. So its your net plus his gross. Its gone both ways for me, I've played well and finished well back after my pro stunk it up over the weekend and drew Tiger when he was 12 ahead of the field. I think the club house likes them because it keeps people around for a bit to watch the results.
Curiosity question for those of you who have attended the seminars concerning WHS or have a much better understanding of what is coming than I do...
There are several courses I can think of in our area where the slope rating is probably off quite a bit. For instance...one particular course added some new tee boxes. In doing so, they backed up every other set of tee markers then had the course rated. The rating for the "regular (white) tees" jumped from 124 to 130. The members there complained loudly about having to play from so much farther back when playing the tees they normally played. Then the club pretty much put all the tee markers back up to where they used to be when rating was 124. Thus, you shoot a good score here...you get dinged pretty hard on your handicap.
Another course did quite the opposite. They added new tee boxes, moved everything back but did not have the course re-rated. In effect, pretty much everyone at that club's handicap increased.
So, my question is with the changes for WHS, would some courses be "required" to have their course re-rated if the scores shot there indicate either the courses is rated too high or too low?
