Hello,

I recently broke 80 a few times in the Torrey Pines North course. Can you please update my awards in my signature to reflect 'Breaking 80'? Thanks!

On my birthday last year, I shot +1, 73, on my home course. Would last year's score be acceptable for a break 80 award? If not, no prob.

Yep, if you want to claim it.

Generally if you play super forward tees or something like an executive course, people won't take it. It's on the honor system.

I have shot in the mid-to-upper 70s several times on various courses over the last few years, but this one stands out as my best round. I was on target all day long and shot 73. It's not the most difficult course I have played , but I'll take it, thank you

I played Plumbrook a few times as a teenager, with my Dad, an uncle, and my grandfather.  Back then the course was WAY out in the boonies.  But I never shot 73, well done!

Today I shot an 87 at North Kingstown Golf Course, breaking 90 for the first time since returning to the game in 2019! Although I only had one GIR, I had 8 nGIRs and took only 29 putts....a personal best.

Having purchased and read LSW cover to cover (some sections multiple times) definitely helped in this regard, including learning to launch my Driver higher and making better approach shots.

I broke 90 with an 89 at Oak Run golf course in Dahinda, IL. I'll update on the goals thread and next up is breaking 85.

 

Thank you!

Broke 80 today, shot a 79 at Sydney Marovitz Golf Club in Chicago. Smooth 39 on front nine and started leaking a little oil toward the end. Had a 10 foot downhill birdie putt on 18, and I didn't want to be the golfer who babied it to the 18th hole - so I rolled it 4 ft past and lipped out the par putt for an ugly ending 40. Still overall it was a 79 and I'm thrilled!!

Broke 90 today (from the white tees) with an 88.   Most consistent round ever...now to turn the 5's to 4's and the 6's to 5's....

I Broke 100 today, shot a 96 (49-47).  Took longer than I had hoped but since I have only played a few full 18 holes rounds this year I will not complain.  Now I need to do this more consistently.

Broke 90 for second time today with an 87.  Makes for two rounds in a row in the 80's.  @iacas - Erik, what do I need to do in addition to notifying this page?  Thanks,

My current "tournament winner" badge says "2015 Club's Match Play champion" -- can I update that to "2015 Club's Match Play Flight champion;  2021 Club's championship flight champion"?  Not sure if there's a word limit.  I don't want to include all the one-day tournaments, but winning two of my club's three is pretty cool.  However, the 2015 match play is what the initial badge is for.   Totally cool if the answer is no.

    • and  While most par 4's I play are not this long, many I play do offer the same types penalties.  I have to agree with @iacas and go for the green knowing that I "may" have to play out a third from a bunker or rough.   For example, today on #11 at the course I was playing I had to decide similarly how to play it.  The hole is guarded on both sides at the front by bunkers and several knobs in the back.  I chose to go 3h instead of laying up as I am reasonably comfortable with where the ball goes and if it doesn't go well, I am okay hitting from green side bunkers.  Risk vs reward - where is the most to be gained?   For me, the hole did not play out as I planned as the 2nd was in heavy rough and the hybrid landed about 40yds short.  PW onto the green for a 2-putt bogie.  Would I play it that way again, why yes.  
    • Day 86 (21 Sep 21) - Played 18 today.  Some of the most consistent ball striking across the board - from irons to woods to driver.  Worked on keeping my pre-shot routine consistent (even adopted it for my chips/pitches in the yard), to do the same thing on every shot of every hole.  Also spent a couple of $ for a small bucket (22) of range balls before getting started.  Again - not rifling through in 2 minutes but rather about 20 minutes of warm-up work.  Really like doing that as I get a feel for the shot shape that is happening that day.  Also it inspires confidence in how the ball should fly.  
    • What don't you like about reaching the green with the second shot on a par four? Is the stuff around the green really, really penal? If it was that penal, what makes the 40-yard chip-and-run so easy?
    • Home course has a 370-yard par 4 with a landing area about 20 feet above tee box. If I push or pull a drive, I can end up in a similar situation in light rough. This particular green has four distinct nodes to it, so from even closer in "hitting to center" is not a sound option. (Hitting the wrong node and three-putting is enraging.) But from 190 yards out... depends on how your day is going. If hybrid have been flying smoothly, go for it. If not, lay up short and chip on. Also, what does terrain look like in "long miss" zone? In the courses I play, some greens are set inside a horseshoe, or mini-amphitheater. This means a miss - long or side - can leave you with a downhill angle pitch or chip out of shaggy turf.
    • It sounds like your instincts are correct. Given the description you provided, #3 is the best percentage play over the long term.
