Nice round! How about that Slope/Rating?

 

I don't think I'm gonna get a chance to do this one this week, but if I were, I'd strongly consider moving up to the front tees and just treating the course like 18 par-3s. Drive at everything and test my short game for birdies. Anybody planning to do a similar strategy?

I thought maybe I would go back to the tips just to stretch some of the second shots and the par 3s, I am fairly confident with the hybrid after last year's challenge....

Love my Puma shoes, they are so comfortable and are holding up beautifully 😍😊

Got some morning rounds booked for Thursday and Friday this week.

I’ll have to look at the par 3s and figure out which tee box to play. One course may actually work better from my normal tees as one of the par three holes is a hybrid away and would be in No mans land if I move up.

Any more challengers?! We’ve had some good turnout so far this week.

Who else wants to hit bombs?!

My hopeful round for Wednesday got shot down, with absenteeism and attrition at work they're tightening down on time off for those of us that show up everyday. Our allowable time off is 10% of our line and someone else had time off tomorrow plus someone is out for medical reasons and should be back Thursday. So, what's a guy to do? I put in for Thursday. No one is on the calendar, hopefully I'll get it. 

I'm really wanting to do this challenge, it reminds me of my early days playing this game. I couldn't hit an iron to save my life and would often hit woods with 1/2 and 3/4 swings. I like the strategy involved and think this would turn out better than an irons only round. There's a chance of rain later in the day, so I hope, if I get off, to play early and enjoy the cooler weather and the chance to sweep/chunk some dew.

Do they still count as Bombs if you only hit it 235 yards?

I’ll be playing Thursday afternoon and/or Sunday afternoon depending on weather. I need to map out my tees for a few holes

I'll be playing my normal tees, about 6,600 yards par 71. Other options are 6,800 or way back to 5,2000. Interestingly I score better from the back tees. 

Par 3's will require some interesting shot manufacturing, 2 play about 145, one at 180 and one at 200.

I usually play better around that yardage too. But the idea of just basically going for the green every time is intriguing. But you can’t forget about the slope and rating either.

I figure, if we’re participating in the Bomb it like Bryson challenge, I may as well try his grips!

The green tees are rated 6 under, blues are 2 over. I think playing off scratch from the greens messes with my head. It also doesn't feel like "real" golf.
