There's a reason @david_wedzik and I trademarked the phrase "Golf is Hard"®. https://thesandtrap.com/b/the_numbers_game/angles_of_error Here's a par three that is often a 7- or 8-iron (but can be a 6-iron). A driver on a par five. And another par three that plays from 190-220 yards. In all three cases, you have about +/- 2 or 3° in which to hit your shot, or else we deem the shot "a failure." Set your expectations properly, and give yourselves the credit you deserve when you DO hit a fairway or a green. It's phenomenally difficult!
As with the book cover for LSW, Dave and I have put the trademarked term (yes, we trademarked it) "Golf is hard" up for design at 99designs.com. https://99designs.com/t-shirt-design/contests/create-t-shirt-design-fun-unique-shirts-catchy-557914/ Interested designers can submit designs, we'll rate and offer feedback, and just under four short days from now we'll narrow the field down to about four to six designers, and three days after that, we'll have our design! Dave and I plan to sell some fun t-shirts and other apparel with "Golf is hard" and other versions (an accountant might buy a shirt that says "Golf is hard. Taxes are easy."). So, unless you're a designer, this post is mostly to let you guys know about the contest so that you can follow along, offering feedback, and sharing what you think. We'll probably sell an initial batch of shirts here on TST and we may even give some away. Thanks!
onthehunt526 posted a blog entry in Journey to the Center of the GreenThe first sentence in Lowest Score Wins is "Golf is hard" I agree with that statement 100%. In my opinion, Golf breaks down to four major facets. Driving, approaches, chipping, and putting. I have had rounds where I have had one going. Usually when that is the case it is putting. There have been rounds I have been able to put two facets together. I've had a handful of rounds where I have three facets going... Why can some days can I get three facets going and the fourth one just takes the day off. Usually on those days the putter or my chipping will take the day off... Those are my rounds of 75 or 76. I had a round 2 years ago where I hit 10 greens in regulation, had 5 near greens in regulation and shot 85. Why because I chipped bad and didn't make one birdie putt, worse yet I three putter three times including a green in regulation. i have also had a 76 hitting just 6 greens in regulation, but had an additional 10 near greens in very safe places so I was able to get up and down a lot with simple chip and run motions. In my opinion if I could ever get all four facets together for one magical afternoon, I could shoot around par. But I think that might be a long way off. I would be happy with 10 greens and the rest near greens. Gain maybe 1 stroke putting, and get 5 or 6 scrambling pars. But I'm along way from that.
