    Is PAR more of a problem than just shooting it?

    Wait, I thought you had 24 so far?

    Is PAR more of a problem than just shooting it?

    Thanks for the replies guys. I just enjoy "food for thought" type discussions. As we all do, I also will reference where I stand in terms of over or under par. It is a standard measure that we all comprehend and can be very useful. My whole point revolves more around those, and there are many, who don't digest par for what it is. As I attempted to describe, I see all too often people using a score by name and supposed value to change the way they will or won't approach that stroke. It is all too common for one of our playing partners, or even ourselves, to verbalize the supposed higher value prior to making a stroke of any kind - most often a putt. Many times this will psych them out from the get-go and eliminate not only their chance of success on that stroke but also on subsequent strokes when they fail to succeed. Although there are others (all of us - of course ) who only rise to those occasions and raise our level of play for that stroke of such import! Maybe this is the golf coach in me talking .... but I just sense that when any player loses ground to par at a rate higher than they wished prior to the round, or gains strokes in an equally unexpected fashion ...... then they lose sight of what they are doing or what is still ahead of them in either situation. Three holes in and 6 over for a good player is not in and of itself a death sentence for the round. There are far more holes left than they played .... plenty of opportunity to get your arze in gear and shoot a couple over. -2 after seven for a guy who normally shoots 82 ...... no cause for alarm either ..... just keep playing and stop looking at how you stand to par. Meaning ...... we relate that over or under par at any point in the round and then just attach it to 72 and imagine that as our final score. The two are realistically as unrelated as they are seemingly intertwined. I simply am convinced that this would be less common if the mindset was more in line with the reality - which is that it is the final total that matters. As much as this sounds like they are the same, for many they are not from a mindset /psychological approach aspect. Just my thoughts from playing, observing, reading, and coaching - it also stems from seeing similar thinking in other sports as it relates to score prior to the end of whatever game is being played.

    They sure lacked effort all game. Not that I am complaining though. Ha! I hope that takes Urban down a peg (or 10). All that said, it was a great win for Purdue.

    What are your weather limits for golf?

    I know that conversation all to well. After the -20° winter 50° feels like shorts weather. After the 100° summer, 50° feels like skiing weather.

    You know? I have never had the please of dropping in on Barona Creek. I don't read anything about it or hear anything about it so, thanks for adding it to my check out list. The cool thing about the place we live in is the fact that many people would call it the "mecca" of golf. There are always places to play. My normal local go to's are: Mission Bay (literally 1 - 2 minute drive from house... VIVA PB!) Bonita Torrey North and South La Jolla CC Admiral Baker Riverwalk I played Crosby Rancho Santa Fe today as a guest and that place, if you have the means and contacts, I would highly recommend to take every opportunity to play. It is a great great spot that is highly renowned. Last but not least, GO SOX! Thank you thank you! Getting ready for the cold cold coming your way? Never been to Ohio but it's on the bucket list!!!

    Oh, thanks. It's rare for him to get so animated. If Ohio State loses to Purdue, that's going to shuffle the deck a bit.

    This reminds of my favorite “joke” that i created its a conversation between two friends and goes like this. This call takes place in A northern climate in early March after a long cold winter. Rick: Hey buddy, the forecast says its going on hit 50 as a high tomorrow, wanna get out somewhere and play?? Tom: You know it!! Make the time, ill be there!! Same two friends almost 8 months later in November. Tom: so you wanna play golf tomorrow? Rick: Hell no!!! It's only going to be 50 as a high!! Not for me. I'm done for the year. The same temperature can be a real matter if perspective. Bridgestone Tour B JGR Driver and HF2 irons Pre Release Testing

    Iron Terminology

    I wouldn't worry to much about terminology. I have no idea about terminology in golf swings but I understand the mechanics by giving my own names to the mechanics. So while I have a great understanding of the swing, nobody else can understand what I am saying. Just figure out what works for you and then it doesn't really matter what it is called, or what you call it. As long as you have an understanding of what's happening, it doesn't matter what most people call it.
