  1. When a PGA Tour player shoots a really low round - 61, 63, 59… whatever… ask yourself: did the guy have to get up and down a lot or hole a lot of chips for birdie? Or did he hit a bunch of greens, leave himself short putts, and have a decent day with the putter? When a PGA Tour player needs to rely on his short game, he probably didn't have a great round. He may have salvaged a decent round, but he didn't have a great round. Great rounds - and good scoring over the long haul - are a result of the full swing. Hitting greens, and hitting it closer to the hole where you have stress-free
  2. I attended the Division III ECAC championship this past weekend. And I saw a lot of quadruple bogeys. On a relatively wide open golf course. It made no sense to me. None. This golf course was not that difficult, and the vast majority of the big scores were from two simple errors: Being far too aggressive at the wrong times. Making utterly horrible swings. For the first, I mean stuff like this: you hit the ball in a fairway bunker, and have a 4-iron left to the green. Rather than hitting it out short and left where there's 80 yards of space and taking your chances on p

    Has anyone ever had dealings with a designer/developer for a custom Golf App - like score keeping? I've been on a couple of sites (Fiverr - Freelancer) and searched on Bark. The only drawback is most of the freelance people on these sites are abroad. Working through different time zones is cumbersome in communications. I'm looking for US individuals to deal with. Companies which do design work are more interested in Corporate $$ rather than small guys like me. I realize there are many free scoring apps, but most of them are for individual use. One great app is Golf GameBook
  4. There's a whole thread there, so please click that link and read it. Good golf is often boring golf. Give yourself birdie putts and shorter par putts from nGIR and you'll be a good golfer.
  5. http://www.gamegolf.com/player/iacas/round/1074402 The other day I had a round with 18 straight pars. I thought I might birdie the 10th (and a hole or two before that, perhaps), but after about the 12th hole I was really almost more interested in getting what I think is my third 18-par round instead of shooting 71 or 70… So, how many 18-par rounds have you ever had? Or, what is the highest number of pars you've had in a round?
  6. This past Monday, I played really well. I had been struggling with the longer clubs and the driver lately so beforehand I decided to move up a set of tees and hit irons to wide fairway spots. I executed well and matched my career low round on that course, which incidentally I hit using the same strategy. I have a tee time set at the same course on Sunday. I'd like to score better. There are a couple of decisions I'd like to take back from Monday's round, but for the most part I think my scoring was primarily due to hitting the ball well. I can't assume I'll hit the ball just as well (or b
  7. From time to time, the topic of modern irons and jacked up lofts comes up and a common criticism is that individual irons hitting farther creates wider gaps at the scoring end of the bag. I thought about this a little bit and I realized, as I'm getting better at the game, I almost never hit a full swing on an approach shorter than 150 yards. I've always liked the partial wedge yardage system and this year I finally mapped mine, but I also find myself using the knockdown or 3/4 swing approach to hitting greens with short irons more and more. As a result, even though my full swing yard
  8. Can't find a link, but the latest Golf Digest had an interview with a guy who's coached a bunch of mid to top tier pros. Title was something like Swing Doctor to the Stars or something... One thing he said I thought was really interesting. He said putts should be 1/2 stroke. Presumably he means, to get technical, any stroke on the ball resting on the green counts as 1/2 stroke, any stroke on the ball sitting off the green is 1 stroke. Let's not get caught up in fringe or links definitional discussions. The point was by example. Take a long par 3 with a bunch of water guarding th

  10. Some players know exactly what they are shooting while they are playing. Some players have no idea how they are scoring. Where do you fall in? Do you choose to know what you are shooting as you are playing and why? Yes/No: I generally always know where I stand during the round. I don't make a point to know, but I do. On Purpose: No Why: I think it's because I pay attention to my round in sets of 3 holes. I try to limit my score to 1 bogey every three holes. After nine, I just know what I shot because I know how I did on my sets. Even when I try not to know and I'm not paying attentio
