I played TPC Sawgrass about 6 years ago. I spent about $2.90 per stroke. 

 

You either got a great deal at Sawgrass, or shot north of 100! ;-)

How much money do your shots each cost you, on average?  My average score is roughly 81 by my last calculation.
I'll play roughly 175 - 200 rounds per year on average. My membership is $500 per month (Shots (14175) / Annual Dues ($6000) = .42 per shot based on 175 rounds, not including $1250 per year trail fee. But my bar tab exceeds the membership most months.... 

If you belong to a club, it's just one extra step to estimate you're average cost per round depending on how much you play per year.

What do you think is the most you've ever paid per shot in one single round?  I paid $300 up front for a tournament and had to cancel (non refundable) 3.70 per shot,,,  Ouch ...

Did you shoot 69 the one time you played Pebble? Yes on the front nine about 30 years ago  :-(Green fees were only $35 back then.

And, lastly, what is the least you've ever paid per shot for a single round?  I've been fortunate to have numerous  "COMP" rounds, very numerous...

Did you shoot 120 at your local muni on a weekday afternoon when it was $11 for 18 holes? Never in my life...  :whistle:

I played about 40 rounds at my course this year. I work there so my greens fees are free. I made about $3,000 working there this year. Average score was around 72. So I made about $1.00 a stroke. :beer:

Most I have ever paid to play golf was $150, shot 70 something so thats about $2.00 a shot.

1.The place I play most often is $49 on weekends and I usually shoot around 90, so $.54 per shot.

2. I have never played many high $ courses. I recall one where the fee was around $100 and I shot 85 for $1.18 per shot.

3. I used to belong to a small country club with a 9 hole course and the dues were $40 per month! Cart storage was $100 per year and free gas. It was worth that for the pool for the kids. Back then I played at least ten rounds per month or $.05  or less per shot.

I pay a lot of dignity on quite a few shots - running low

I went back over some of my past scores, using the score cards I keep.  I wanted to see exactly what my numbers would be. There were some high end courses included. 

My cost per hole was around $2.50, and my cost per stroke was $0.54.   These numbers are based on averages for the 75 cards I actually kept. $45.00 per round,  averaging 4.65 strokes per hole.

1- I pay $2500 per month at my home course to be a member and $130 each round. I played in average 6,5 rounds each month.
I pay in total $3345 -> (1$=18,80UDS). 178UDS. / 6,5 rounds= 27,4 UDS / 75 strokes each round =
0,36 UDS each stroke.
 

2- I payed $1500 for a 2 round tournament. Shoot 75 on 2nd round -> $1500 / 2 rounds / 75 =  $10 -> 0,53 UDS each stroke.

3 - Shoot 85 at my home course: 27,4UDS pay per round / 85 = 0,32 UDS each stroke.

I'm a high handicapper.  Now, I feel better about paying my monthly membership dues.

Swing Away - again, and again.... :)

It's too late in the day after too much Bourbon to do the calculations, but every time out I hope that my round will cost me the maximum amount per stroke of which I am capable!

As far as blowing a 120, I haven't done that since Junior HS. I did play a soaking wet Spyglass two weeks after the AT&T was cancelled due to weather. I shot a 92, and it cost us $290 to play. That's about $3.15 a stroke!

    • Thanks for posting that.  Now I know what you're trying to do.  The club is running parallel and you're using bisecting to describe that position. You're working on swing plane so I can tell you how to check for a good swing plane with confidence. Place the camera behind your hands and point it straight down the target line.  Draw a line with a swing app, I use V1 golf, from the hosel of the club and extend it to you're lower right elbow and stretch the line all the way up.  That's your elbow plane and the closer you can stay on that line coming down the better.  It may shallow below it during your transition which is fine, depending on your unique swing or above it if you are casting the club. So to be clear , hosel to right elbow and draw a nice straight line across those two spots from DTL. Can't tell but you may be trying to get under plane and getting too shallow.  That line is your guide to good swing plane.  Every swing is unique but that shaft needs to be getting near that line when the plane is coming down at some point. If you get dead on it when your hands are approaching your right hip, you're good.
    • I’m honestly really using my legs to start and feel like I’m squaring it up by turning my body around...kind of like I’m inside out...not in the golf sense but like I’m some kind of rubber ball with a cut in it being turned or squeezed inside out. It’s a hard feeling to explain. I think these are the correct motions. But the club isn’t behaving on video...yet. As for the hands, I really can’t feel either one during the swing I think they are working as a unit. And there might be a hit impulse but it honestly does feel like a swing. I can feel loading going back, I change direction with the hips that bumps them...at that time I feel like the club and everything is falling...and then I get that twisting inside out feeling I tried to describe. Now my hands are saving it at the end because they must. From everything I’ve heard good players talk about, I think these are correct feels. I’m either sending some forces wrong...or I don’t even know....but hey I can hit good shots lol. The goal is to get to scratch tho...all that and didn’t even mention that right leg in the downswing. But one mission at a time
    • Yes I’m trying. And ya, no kidding, it’s not like waving a wand. In my old/bad swing I got to this position with over the top and hit impulse and pulling the handle.
    • Day 46.  Another long day at work, another dozen balls in my indoor practice room when I got home.  Slowly hit, and I love the feeling.
    • Are you trying to bisect your lower forearm? ( not sure how that's even possible by coming down your elbow plane)  it should be your right bicep. Maybe I'm just not understanding you correctly.  In the model swing you did bisect your bicep ( upper half of the arm) and it was on plane. Now with a ball in the way I can tell you why it gets steeper.  You are trying to hit a ball and your right arm is firing to soon and wanting to take over for power but you don't need to do that. The right arm needs to stay passive until you post and release.  It will only steepen the shaft if you don't wait.  Your left arm needs to be the dominant player up until the last moment then you can use your right side to generate more speed by releasing the snot out of the golf club.  If you want to try something, hit some at a little slower speed and keep your right arm quiet and see if you have improvement. One drill would be to hit some easy ones with just your right finger tips touching the grip. The challenge is to break through with a ball in the way.  It takes time, stay patient with it.  But right arm dominance early in the swing causes the shaft to get steep.
