Handicap Index

Found 5 results

  1. After a year or two of coaching my college golf team, I came up with a challenge for them, as they would make too many stupid mistakes on the par fives in particular, and on too many par fours trying to hit a hero shot when they got into trouble. The challenge? It's simple: don't make a six (or higher). Despite many, many rounds in the 70s or low 80s, and 75 rounds played in total, we have still only had about seven successfully completed rounds. I almost never have a six. Greater than half of my rounds are played without a six. I'll take a bogey on a par four, and I rarely bogey par fives. I understand my Shot Zones, the Penalty Buffer, and Decision Maps. So, let's have this topic stand as an ongoing one. When you complete a round successfully without a six (or higher), post here and tell us about it. P.S. If you're an 18 handicap index or higher, you can post if you complete the "Seven Challenge." That means no sevens or higher.

    Flop Shot Catch Challenge

    Based on discussion in a previous topic… I'm happy to introduce the official Flop Shot Catch Challenge topic! I've created an award (you can see at the top of the Site Awards) and will grant it to anyone who films themselves hitting a flop shot above head height and catching the ball before it hits the ground while still holding onto your wedge, then posts that video here in this thread as an embedded YouTube or Vimeo video for all to enjoy. Hopefully the rules can stay that simple. Please be careful, though, as we do not want anyone injuring themselves trying to do this. Attempt this on flat ground and do not throw your wedge. I'll try to film myself doing it later this afternoon.

    Challenge Badge Designs

    With the six-foot-putt challenge, we also have the "opposite swing" challenge (kinda), and the flop shot catch challenge. So I'm thinking maybe we should have a separate awards category for "Challenges." I'd like to create a standard background for the award (a circle or square, probably) on which we could put an image showing the specific challenge. The standard background would make it obvious that it's a challenge, with the unique part highlighting what specific challenge it is. Any ideas?
  5. GIR is KING! Yet I still go for pins when I shouldn't. I recently received a GameGolf Live and have enjoyed analyzing the stats the website provides (it's a good distraction from my swing). So I decided to give the "Challenge" feature a try to help me keep GIRs in my sights. I've started two challenges that will run June 1-30; highest GIR% overall, and in a single round. Tie-breaker for both challenges is putts-per-hole. The challenges are open to everyone on GameGolf, but if anyone here is interested, I'll spring for a nifty TST-logo ball marker for the top-finishing TST member in each challenge (if @iacas will "drop-ship" them for me ). Good luck! Highest GIR% Overall - http://www.gamegolf.com/challenges/11194 Highest Single Round GIR% - http://www.gamegolf.com/challenges/11195
