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.

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!!

    • If you know you are better, just get enjoyment out of beating them 😉 If not, mindfulness is a good way to try to not stay annoyed. 
    • So today I was paired with a couple of annoying golf partners.  I would guess they cost me a few strokes, but we know that’s not possible as only we are responsible for our shots.  But maintains focus with the guys who play only a few times a year can have you lose focus and you can’t wait for the round to end. A few of these guys are in this video, especially Mr. Mood Swing. Enjoy:   
    • First, welcome to the Sand Trap!   Second, in my mind, of course an ace on a par-4 wins!!  Now if you get someone who pitches in for 2 I can see a discussion, he's just as close, but in a case of a tie, the win should go to the guy who did it in fewer shots.  I don't know what a proxy is worth in your group, but he can use it to payoff some of the drinks tab for the ace.
    • How does that work, you fly side by side? I'm still getting the hang of keeping the plane steady. You have to be really gentle with the controller sticks. I think I wore out the batteries stalling, making the controller rumble.  
    • Welcome to the club    I recognize that I'm an objectively bad putter, too, and while I'm trying to fix that, it really shows is the discrepancy of my GIR vs birdies made stat. Then again, I think someone (I am going from memory here) had some data that among better amateurs (I am not in the category of "better amateurs" by any stretch), there was an inverse correlation between birdies made and score.  I would take comfort in that if I didn't have a 9 GIR / 0 birdies / scored 90 round in recent memory.
