A 12-Hole Standard?
77 members have voted
1. Would the game of golf be better or worse off now if 12 holes (3 par 3, 6 par 4, 3 par 5 = par 48) had become the standard?
I made some attempts at golf in my two rounds this past week, but the best shot of the week was a scuttle 70 yard chip and run down the hill under the tree of the cart path to just off the green about 25 feet from the hole at the par-5 18th at Afton on Saturday. And I made the putt for birdie, too.
I must be playing with more observant people than you. My club's rules controversies are few and far between. Although the tournament chairman did catch someone a month or two ago taking a drop and then claiming it was a ball that he couldn't find. That's one person we won't be seeing at events for a while.
Welcome to TST and welcome back from your coma. As you may have discovered there are plenty of options out there for clubs. We now have SGI ( Super Game Improvement) , GI ( Game Improvement), Player’s Distance irons, and of course your cavity backs and muscle backs. Almost every major brand has a series of all or some of these categories.
The general consensus these days is to get a good fitting done and see what works for you. Find a few brands you like, even if it’s just due to looks/price. eBay, 2ndSwing, Callaway Pre-owned are some places to find great deals on golf clubs.
If you want some current golf mechanic content we have plenty of that here as well. Look around and enjoy and post in the many different topics we have here. You can even start a ‘My Swing’ thread in the ‘Members Swings’ section and get some swing advice. Cheers!
