Re: WTF did you shoot today?

On Saturday: 108 (net 82) in our September Medal. Couldn't get going for some reason, even with seven bogeys. Pace was slow and then we got shouted at to hurry up by a group on the 4th tee when we were putting on the 5th (the pace of play was not OUR fault!!) I let that get to me and then started to...

Re: Merged post and reply

Dude could you be any more cryptic here? No. Well, maybe. In short, I posted that I came one shot short (including the words "ONE.DAMN.SHOT") of retaining my title in our August bank holiday Monday competition, as I finished tied with two others but came third on countback. I can't rememb...

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

Today, I scored 100, for 34 points, scoring on every hole, in our Captains' Day competition. I came 9th out of 40.

I'm actually pretty happy with that.

Thanks, guys.

I must admit the option of a DQ for both players hadn't come up as an option (good job this isn't the final!)

Rules question

A couple of our members were playing against each other in one of our matchplay competitions. After 18 holes they were all square. One of them (Player A) was happy to continue back down the 1st to play sudden death, but the other (Player B), seeing a couple of groups ready to tee off on the first sa...

Re: Post your pics of the courses you play

Kind of on topic, if you look at my club website (http://www.braesidegolfclub.com/) there's a link at the lower right to photos - taken by my wife - of our men's championship.

They're mostly group pictures, but there are a couple of action shots.

Sundays medal: +0 +2 +0 +1 +1 +4 +2 +2 +2 +1 +1 +5 +2 +9 +1 +3 +0 +1 So, that's 3 Pars, 6 Bogeys, 5 Doubles, 1 Triple, 1 Quad, 1 Quints, and 1 Nonuple (Yes, I looked that one up). I hate this damn game. With my high handicap (26) I actually could have won the medal this month, at least have a top fi...

Holiday golf. This is in Exeter, Devon. It's a nine-hole course which I went round twice, scoring 94 (45 and 49).

The cider was excellent.

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

On Saturday: 115 (60/55)

Four pars are the highlights (should have been five, but I missed a one-footer on the 17th). My putting was v good. Hit some good chip shots. Not much to be said about the rest of my game.

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

Well, it (net 80) was still good enough for 14th place out of 22. But all I can think is, if I'd kept that 13 down to a 6 I'd have been 5th or 6th (depending on countback).

Next time. Next time...

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

Nope, wouldn't card a 13, you're right. I'd take a double par and let the handicap system square away what the ESC would be. I see nothing gained with taking that many strokes on a hole, but that's me. If you're not holding up anyone, then take 20. But in regards to pace of play, i say move on. Wha...

Have you been fitted? You could have the wrong shaft or head or both for your driver and fairways. Well, that wasn't a response I was expecting... No, I haven't.
