Did all the comments on the Titleist iron testing thread get blown away or something?  I even have a notice @Shankster posted a comment, but I can’t see it…says the last comment was July 29th with no arrow to scroll forward.  Is this just me?

I think the fix for the other tests where there was a page number issue when they closed the pre selection comments and opened a new section broke this thread.

Figured it’s something like that.  (So, it’s not just my view…same for you/everyone else?)

Does anyone else feel like they are leaving something out there when you only play 9 holes?  Walking by that 10th tee yesterday… I had already drawn up my shot… 

 

I rarely play 9, doesn’t feel right.  Haha.

I'm the opposite, I have my work schedule arranged so I can be on course by 4pm every weekday (SWMBO has weekends and supports my golf any weekday I choose to play 👍) so 9 holes on my 9 hole regular course is perfect to get in a round before evening sets in with the shorter days of early and late season.  When I head to the 10th on an 18 hole course I always feel like I have turned the corner for the return journey with half the marathon already complete.  

Used to think 9 was too short but that changed when in late October they are looking to pull the flags out of the greens as I am closing in on the last holes especially when I am the last one out there... 91 rounds in 2020 and more than half way there already so far in 2021

I play 9 a lot, either with my son or after work, and I really enjoy it. Then again, when I took up the game my home course was a 9 hole layout that had some decent elevation changes that made things challenging, but I could walk it in less than 90 minutes and not feel like I was rushing myself. So I guess that's kind of like *my* normal feel for a round. I guess it's also why I loathe 18 hole rounds that take more than 3.5 hours.

I hear you @EasyPutter, but when I play alone (99.9%) of the time I can get 18 holes done in the time it takes others to play 8.  I don’t feel complete unless I hit every shot… haha.

We play 9 Monday, Tuesday & Friday and 9 Wednesday with an occasional 18.  That’s OK with me at my age.

I rarely play 9, doesn’t feel right.  Haha.

I play a lot of 9 hole rounds. @Lacassem and I try to play them pretty much every Thursday in the summer that were not on vacation. 
 

Would I rather play 18? Sure. And are there days I feel like I really could score well with 18? You bet.  But with three little ones running around I don’t always have the time for the 18 hole round. 
 

Tomorrow I got 18 on the books though! Hopefully my game shows up as we’re out bright an early. 
 

edit: it’s usually on a 9 hole course too, so there’s no 10th tee for me to look at with wide eyes as I stroll to the parking lot.

I play 9 holes quite often, as I loathe the tee shot on 10. It's the stuff my nightmares are made of and I don't want to know how much money I've lost in golf balls hitting into the trees and creek on the left hand side. 

I played 18 with a friend from work there and immediately pointed at the hole and went into a very descriptive tirade on that hole before we teed off on the first. I hate that #$&@ hole. 

I didn’t see that reply coming 😂
