Can you shoot your age?

We had my clubs invitational tournament this weekend. I have a great great uncle that played in it. He shot 74 yesterday and is 87 years old!!! I'm always amazed with someone that can shoot their age, or in his case a lot less. Thought I would ask the MGS community if they can or play with someone that can?

Since I moved to central Florida 5 years ago I have been amazed at the older golfers who can shoot their age . It's freakin crazy how good these seniors R. The local paper runs a PAGE with hole in ones, Eagles and age breakers. That's a page! I've been lucky enough to play 18 with a couple of these guys and it's more than impressive.

This man I'm talking about has a condo in Fl. Not sure where. He heads down around October and comes home (central KY) around April. I guess that's why he's so good, plays year round.

Shooting my age (66) is about as likely as me running through hell with gasoline drawers on [emoji15]. Neither one is gonna happen....

 

I do have an old friend who is 77 years old. He's shot his age and below several times this year.

So you're saying yes? You got this!

 

I'm 32, I might make that after 9 one of these days. Putting in lots of work practicing, reading as much as possible, watching as much as possible!

Shot a 68 when I was 69 from the back tees of a good course, but got into coaching and spectating granddaughter softball and soccer and didn't keep up the golf. Trying to recover, but not at all sorry for the time spent with the granddaughters.

Happy birthday! You can do it. Practice scrambling for pars and bogeys! Short game practice helped me break 90.

Nope, 69 years old here but with my bad back I am farther away from doing it now than I was 3 years ago at 66.  It just keeps getting worse and so does my golf game.
