Shot an 88 at my home course today with three sixes, no sevens. Which I think just qualifies me as having completed the challenge, being an 18 handicapper.

Yeah, you completed the sevens challenge, but not the six:

P.S. If you're an 18 handicap index or higher, you can post if you complete the "Seven Challenge." That means no sevens or higher.

Congrats!

 My last 3 rounds have been without any 6s. Plenty of 5s though. 83, 82, and a 79 today. 

My last 6 was on a par 4, which was 4 rounds ago. Missed a 4' left breaking putt for it. 

The 83,  I had a 5 on a par 3, which is where most of my double bogies happen.

Fortunately I am a bogey/par golfer for the most part. I like being consistent in that regard. My short game gets most of my practice attention, which saves me from alot of those 6s.

The only time I have achieved the no 7's challenge I shot a 88. I shot 89 once with an 8 on the scorecard....oh what could have been.

Played 18 yesterday.  Front 9 made no 6's.  Hole #10, there it is, a big 8....then on 11, a 7, then on 12, a par 3--I got 6.  So, lesson learned, play each hole as it comes and play smart golf....don't play a shot that is not in your skill level--Play smart...

Next round scheduled for Monday or Tuesday, so we shall see...

The only way I could get thru a round, with no sixes, would be to keep score in base five.  Excuse me...base six.

Gonna be tough for a 20 index to have a no-sixes round.

Texed Erik, but I screwed it up on my last hole today. Didn't even realize I was that close. Had to take an unplayable lie on a par 5 on my 2nd shot and didn't hit my wedge lose enough to make the par save.

this is a great idea... will give me something to focus on. 

I've accomplished this task only once, a few years ago. I bogeyed literally, every. single. hole. I wouldn't credit myself with it being legitimate however, it was during a time when I likely wasn't adhering to the rules of golf as closely as i do now. Can't say for sure if I broke any rules, but chances are I did.

Bogeys on par fives are 6s, so how did you accomplish the task?

I had read this thread a couple of times last season. I worked on my chipping a few times a week last year and it helped me lower my average score a few strokes. In addition to the chipping practice I thought I would work on the less than full swings this year. After reading this thread again today I think I should probably follow the advice of iacas and stop trying to make the "hero" recovery shot! I went over all of my rounds from last year and found so many double and triple bogies (or worse!) that started with a poor drive and escalated with an ill advised recovery shot. The season is still about 5 or 6 weeks away here in the Twin Cities so I'm writing myself a note to attach to my bag! I'll check back here in late May or early June hopefully with a No Sixes round!

I was just looking back over some score cards before I round file them. 

In a stretch of 8 rounds, I had three 6s. Here's the funny part. Two of those rounds we're for a 78, & 79. The third was on an 80 card. All of them followed a par three, which I made pars on. 

Noticed I had alot of 5s too. :whistle:

shot a 77 a week or so ago...had two 6's on Par 5's. Should've been two easy pars.

This will be a tough challenge for me to complete.
