I add against level fours or level fives depending on what the first few scores are. If there are more 5s and 6s I'll do it against 5s. If there are more 3s and 4s I'll do it against 4s.

For example: 454435445 565544565 I would do the first nine against 4s, +1 E +1 +2 so 38. Second nine against 5s +1 E -1 E = 45 for 83. If I wasn't doing the two 9s separately, I'd probably look at this against 4s and then regret it after the first half :) +2 goes to +3 +5 +6 +7 +8 +10 +11 = 83. Sometimes I do against 5s just for the heck of it. Going along this whole string against 5s is really easy. I'd just look at how many under it is. 1 2 3 5 6 7 6 7 8 7

I do quite a lot of adding up and am lazy about it, so tend to figure out the easiest way to do it. I think this is the easiest way to do it.

Yeah.  @Fourputt, OP is asking what you do next.  We assume you write the numbers down for the sake of this thread, but he's asking how you add them up.

(The different answers all interest me and it's partially because I'm trying to consider different ways of teaching simple math to my little ones.  I like hearing exactly what goes through peoples head as they do math) :)

I add them 2 holes at a time to get a total score.  Nothing else means anything to me for score or for handicap purposes.

Card:  4,6,5,4,3,6,5,5,4 - I'd add 10+9+9+10+4=42.  I look at 2 single digit numbers and it's easy to "see" the total of those 2.  Been doing it like that for 40+ years.

Try the level 4s (or 5s) method.

Give it a little effort and practice. It's pretty fast itself, especially if you get a lot of 4s.

Par is irrelevant. 9 "4"s is 36. Done.

So… this is also easy:

4 4 5 4 4 3 4 5 3

(BTW I also cancel out 5s if they're beside a 3, because that's the same as 4/4). So in reading that one I'd go +1… E…done.

the time it took me to do your example is however many seconds it takes to say 1 even 1 even 36

nice, I always did each hole in relation to par adding and subtracting but on unfamiliar courses my eyes go up down over up down over, with your method its either 9 4s or 9 5s, less movement less time

• This is the best ans(w)er. Shafts generally do the same thing, but sometimes they do it different.
• Day 173 Worked on a transition feel for palmar flexion today. Gave the 7-iron a break and hit 4-iron, 5W, and 3W. Also slowed down back swing a little bit to make sure I can feel the stretch in my right hamstring/glute when turn is complete. Finished with a couple LW full swings, both of which went over the net into oblivion.
• The shaft is the "imponderable medium" connecting the golfer to the club head.  The more "ponderable" it is...the more one has to think about.  That can be beneficial or otherwise.
• I am a big believer in fittings, although I have never been fit myself (only got serious about the game a year ago. Watching TY (TXG mostly), I have seen what it can do for some people. When it comes to shafts, I am less of a believer. Shaft weight and stiffness certainly play a role in getting a great fit, but more important is gapping, lie angle (I lump length in with this because the correlation is heavy), and the proper heads. I am by no means an expert on this stuff, but if I do go for a fit, those 3 things are what I am going to ask about the most. If you are going to buy new and they offer you a crazy good shaft (usually at a crazy price) based on numbers that are marginally better, I would ask to try the "stock" shaft closest in weight and stiffness to the exotic. They will be different, but not enough to warrant the price in most cases. There are outliers where the exotic is a big upgrade that warrants the price, but those are few and far between.
