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

    • I am having problems transitioning between hitting my Driver and Irons.  When I hit my driver (on the screws) I tend to top  or blade my irons.  When I hit my irons flush, I tend to have issues finding the tee ball with my driver.  Any ideas?
    • The FO video helps. If I were you, I would: Do a lot days 1-5 from https://golfevolution.com/30-day-plan/. Add an avatar. Post in some other topics and get to know some of the people here. Post regularly here showing yourself doing the drills in a few minutes a day at home.
    • Looks better, but think about more weight shift forward on the downswing from the top to about A6. In your chip/punch drills, your weight is shifting forward. Try to get that same feel from A4 to A6. I’ve been doing this drill below since I went to Erie. Take it to the top, stop, shift weight forward so the left hip is over the ankle and let arms fall to A6. Then relax a bit (relaxed muscles are fast muscles) and draw back. Punch forward and stop at A9. For me the focus is getting the left hip to snap back faster. For you, it would be first to get the weight forward feel going.
