  1. Looked to celebrate today - I birdied #17 on our Cowan Creek course - which was the only hole on all three of our courses that evaded me last year. But for me the spreadsheet to mark the holes completed has disappeared and a new format one has taken it place. Anyone else seeing a different spreadsheet or am I just special?
  2. OK, made it in. With the small field cut at even par Hagestad, Stewart is the low amateur
  3. Tried them last year with a 2/1 special price and a free hat. They are a good ball, play very close to the Maxfli Tour/Tour S and the Vice Pro and the durability was good. But not as good as either and with the price it becomes a non-starter. Just can't beat the Maxfli Tour/Tour S especially at the price point. The hat was great. Still wear it.

  5. It would be awesome if MGS would get these people to make us a custom stamp of the logo. Might sell a few of them? https://www.stampyourballs.com/store/c1/Featured_Products.html
  6. Well, the year is about to end and I am very happy with the results. Finished all holes on two of our three courses and will leave one hole un-birdied on the third course. It is the #2 handicap hole and is mentally intimidating but we shouldn't let that stand in the way - if only. It's been a great year and a lot of fun to track hole status all year. Played 199 rounds this year and have one more round tomorrow but not on the course with unfinished business. Guess it gives me something to strive for next year. Will be looking for the 2024 thread.
  7. Thanks to all for the kind wishes. Looking for any bright side - It is now one stroke easier to shoot my age.
  8. Do you think that this formula for determining the "expected score" will be released to the public? If not, won't this really blow the "unofficial" handicaps as well as all "official" non GHIN handicaps out of the water - if they exist.
  9. Finally, I finished one of our 3 courses - got the final hole this past week. Have played 65 rounds on White Wing course (total of 155 on all 3 courses) so am feeling pretty good about where the year stands. Still have a few holes to get on the other courses. As I posted at the start of the year, I got the last hole in 2022 in the month of December, hope to be lucky enough to make that this year.
  10. Still working but not making much headway. Played one of our 3 courses today, playing very well with a 70 Gross. Four birdies (two bogies) but did not birdie one of the 4 holes needed to complete that course. Have one course needing 1 hole, one needing 4 holes and one needing 6 holes. Last year it was in Dec when finally getting the last hole for the year. Hope to finish sooner this year but not getting it done as yet. There is always tomorrow!
  11. No, have to choose from the drop down boxes. This has been an outstanding request of mine since the V2 days. I wanted to do the same thing - track data on different shafts - color difference is the only choice. You can select a totally different club type - one that you will never use otherwise. But you still have to remember which shaft is which club - that is the same as remembering which shaft is which color. After a few different shafts it is not easily done. I finally resorted to a spreadsheet type logging which is totally ridiculous to have to do. Database should be able to accommodate a short user defined text field where you can name it whatever works for you. No, have to choose from the drop down boxes.

  12. We are just past the half way point for the year. Seeing lots of people making some great progress. Posting to get the bump and keep this thread alive. Have played 105 rounds so far this year and am satisified with the results to this point. The "yellow" cell fill color indicates "eagle" on those holes. Only one of the eagles is on a par 5 so still have 11 par 5s to attack. We have 3 courses (54 holes) so there is still time. Made it last year (all birdies) - getting the last hole in the 12th month. On the bright side - I already have marked off that "last hole" this year so life is good.
