Straight from work to the course hoping to get in 12 holes or so. Limped in after 9 with my back screaming at me. Beautiful 45 degree and sunny afternoon. Maybe played to +4. Trying to get in as much golf as possible as im anticipating carpal tunnel surgery around Christmas. Hit happy hour for dinner and drink. Great day all around

Shot a solid 77 today - not bad for a guy who can only play every other week.

I’m very happy. You know you’re striking it well when you have putter in hand after a miss hit. That happened several times.

I also navigated around the broken 9 iron beautifully. Laid up much closer to the green on 3/4 par 5’s to eliminate any chance of 9 iron and then hit a couple of hooded wedges and another gripped down 8 iron to cover the gap.

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

We had a really fun day today.  I shot an 80. One of the guy's in the group, who has been struggling of late, shot the best round of his life; an 86.  Another, with a 22 handicap, shot a 78 with a hole-in-one on the No. 13 par 3.  It was a blast to witness - haven't seen one in at least 30 years! He just kept hitting them straight and his chipping and putting was fantastic.  The other in the group shot a 90 which was one of his better rounds as well.  It's really fun when everyone in the group is clicking and playing well... and exceptionally well in one case. 👍

Well seeings how it is 31 degrees and real feel is 22 we decided to go and play tiger on the number 9 green at our local course. We get there and the green is covered in ice, but does that stop us? No! It pitch black out did that stop us? No! We put a flashlight in the cup and tackled the green armed with only a putter for the three of us and our flashlights on our phones. We had a great time and only seen 1 ball end up in the lake.

Headed south this morning to Eugene to pick up my daughter at UO. Hit Fiddlers Green for some golf goodies and hit their par 3 course. Complete with ice on the ponds and a nice strong wind. Stoppee at 9 as the cold plays havoc wirh the back. Clubs are officially put until after my surgery later in the month.

Heading to the local 9 hole course this morning with @JonathonWJones hoping I’m able to just get these golf tags to work is my only true goal for the day seeings how the weather is not the greatest in northeast Ohio.
Currently 30 degrees and snow staring at 1 lets hope we beat the snow.
Let’s also hope everything is frozen and we can get some 350 yard drives lol

A 22 handicap shot a 78.... I’d lose it if I was against him in a match 

There always has to be that one person in the forum huh. So I guess my question to you is if there is two people playing who is the 22 handicap and furthermore what distinguishes either as a 22? Are you a pro omg[emoji1311] I’m not worthy [emoji1317] can I have your autograph being in such greatness?

The odds are about 1650 to 1 for that kind of differential. If it happens once it is probably legit, you would have to see trends to know if it is sandbagging, had a hot round, or if the person is working on their game.

Many years ago when I was a mid 90s golfer, I had an on day and shot 81. I didn’t approach that number again until I started to take the game more seriously and take lessons. Found a good instructor and after a couple of lessons I shot 76. I quickly lowered my handicap after more lessons.

That's just not right.  There is no way as a 22, I could see myself shooting a 78 - even if the stars were aligned.

Update: no 350 yard drives. I shot a 43 and he shot a 45. Putting was terrible we both 3 pitted on 3 different holes. I did have a birdie, but this is what we were looking at towards the last 4 holes

Back to the 22 because this fits another thread.

 

It happens that 22’s break 80 - exactly as Csnoil wrote about himself and his 81. It just depends on how the 22’s handicap comes about.

 

I play lots of golf with a guy who vacillates from 19-23. I’ve seen him break 80 a handful of times in the dozen or so years that I’ve known him.

 

His handicap is high because he takes lots of penalties (long and wrong), uses exceedingly questionable judgement and is an absolutely abysmal putter.

 

So give him a round where his judgment errors don’t hurt him and he holes some putts and you have the prescription for a “miracle” round. That’s when his cap drops to 19. :)

100% true. I'm that guy. Huge handicap, and when I got fitted for my driver the pro's comment was "you sure don't swing like a 29."

Being stubborn and taking penalties adds a ton to my handicap. I'm like Tin Cup waaay too often. "I know I can make that shot...."

I could easily take 7-10 strokes off my scores in penalties alone. Probably another 4-5 by being smarter about what I pull out of my bag.

I play fairly smart. I play to my yardages is my main point in any round. Not that I can’t take 3/4 or 1/2 swings, but if I don’t have to then I’m absolutely ok with that. I learned a long time ago playing smart will help you a lot more than ton cup. However I would be lying if I said that I’ve never pulled the tin cup myself before. Sometimes there is just that one shot that you know you can do and you know is right no matter how many times you fail.
