  1. Maybe is just players that lowered their handicap from 15 to 5.. and think that as they did that they can go from 5 to +5 and be a PGA tour pro if they just keep practicing. As a 1 index i know is REALLY difficult to go from 1 to 0 or +1... so getting to a +5/+6 is almost delutional. Imagine how much delutional is to do it from.. 5 or more index.
  2. Meh... no. maybe if he didn't make the cut. Give more about lunch angles please!
  3. Do the same pre-round routine you always do. Apply the same strategy you always do. On the 2nd day if you know you are a couple off strokes behind change to a riskier strategy, you have nothing to loose. Have fun! enjoy the experience, each year you are going to do better.
  4. Yes. And you are not going to save that much strokes. Reduce your practice to this areas that are the most common and important: - Short pitches from the rough onto the green (< 5 yards) - Flop shot over a bunker - Short sand shot (15 yards)
  5. PGA tour scoring average on maybe 75 rating courses is 71. If the average score that day was 73.5 then let's suppose the course rating for that day was around 77.5. A scratch player... 0 index averages 2..3 strokes over course index in average. Let say 2.5. 77.5 of the course rating + 2.5 of the average player give us a score of 80 in average. With this in mind half of the scrach players will shoot 80 or below and half will be 80 or above. I guess that 98/99% of them will be below 90. Let's suppose that this course is a lot harder than the scratch player is used to play so let's give 2..3 more stroke to the average score, but at the same time (as Rham said he talk about club champions, they are normally around +4/+2 index) club champions are better than scratch player so we can say that the average still seams ok at 80. Maybe 83 for a scratch player. 75 would be a hard number to beat for a club champion, but not 80 or 90...
  6. The game changer for me from the sand was to open or close the club face according to the amount of sand i think i have below the ball and it's firmness. More sand or soft I open a little more my lob wedge face to grab less sand with the club. More thin or rigid sand i close a little bit the clubs face to grab more sand with my swing. "Standar" sand/thick i use the regular open angle face.
  7. I miss golf, i miss human contact! 110 days in lockdown and still counting. You just miss a handshake, get over it!!!
  8. I played completly gloveless for my entire life. Last year I found 2 gloves while playing outside my home course that were the same size of my hand, nobody asked for them so I kept them. All my life, because of playing gloveless, i ve got soared hands after playing like it happens when you lift weighs without protection, and it was worst when I used to practice in the week. I decided to give the gloves a chance and it didn't make any difference at all in my game but my hands thanked me about it after every round, no more soarness. So now I became a glove On player, just for long game. Around the green and putting the glove is out.
  9. In Buenos Aires ( Argentina), 18th holes walking at my home course on a weekend cost around 10 UDS. It´s a relatively cheap course to play in the area. In a top Tier course (Buenos Aires Golf, where Tiger played the World Cup in 2000 with David Duval) you can pay 80 UDS on a weekend for 18th holes + 10/15 UDS if you share the cart.
  10. Not diverse at all. Most of the members of my club are ex military and their wifes. And average of 70 year old people, all white.

    Scoring

    Forget about other players scores. Only care about your own. I prefer to play a great round of golf and loose to my playing partners than winning but playing poorly. Only care about other players playing by the rules if you are in a tournament or gambling with them, if not... 100% focus on your game.
  12. I play with really slow players. It never crossed my mind that i could be slow. As a matter of fact i'm really quick to play around the green and putting, despite my low handicad. But after a few comments i realised that i take a little to much over the ball in my long shots. I take less than 40 seconds to hit the ball but i was looking also to have a quicker routine to avoid the need to harry up. Now i only take a practice swing just to loosen up the muscles (that i can do when other players are hitting their shots) and quickly proceed to take a proper stance and hit the ball. I'm not a fast player but at least i'm faster than before and never received those comments again.
  13. Someone told me this like 20 years ago but not with the word "mind" but with the word "subconscient". He told me that in the subconscient part of the brain the world no/not doesn't exist. This part of the brain only understand more basic / straigth forward language. So.. "do not hit it left" is the same as "hit it left" for our subconscient. Your subconscient is going to try to hit it left while your conscient is going to try to avoid it. Sometimes the subconscient wins over the conscient part and well... bad things happens.
  14. Driver for me and aim exactly at were @klineka finished his 3 iron. If I hit it straigth i'll be left to the green with 50% birdie chance. If I miss it right I will be on the green, or with and easy chip/pitch. 75% birdie chance. If I miss it left I will be on the rough with a 50 yard shot. Same chance of bogey/birdie. With this strategy i guess that after 4 rounds of a tournament i can finish the hole -1. Laying up... If I hit it straigth i'll be on the fairway with a 50 yard shot with 25% birdie chance. If I miss it right I will be on the sand with a 50 yard shot thats 25% more chance of bogeys than birdies. If I miss it left I will be on the rough with a 70 yard shot. Same chance of bogey/birdie. With this strategy i guess that after 4 rounds of a tournament i can finish the hole Even. Driver all year long!
