How'd you play?

To piggy back off @B.Boston I also made all my meetings and felt refreshing to play before work! Light drizzle here and there felt good (very humid today) nothing was rolling so off the tee was shorter. Was a good ball striking day, crap putting.

Also to note I played irons only (with 2 drives just to see where I was at). Overall 40 with great fairways hit (thanks to the irons) and the GIR reflected the shortness off the tee.

Lastly the course entrance I through in there. Was great to see with memorial day and the shutdown, was nice to see some American pride out there.

Played 18 today with dad at the course hosting the district qualifier next month. Lots of positives and some really good course management today. 39/37 with 3 birdies and a double. If I could gripe about one thing, my was not great.  5 over round was a big deal for me as I had never broken 80 on this course until today.  I strung 3 bogeys in a row on 15-17 but finished 18 with a bird. 
 

It’s at the south end of Canandaigua Lake and the views are fantastic. One amusing shot from today...I landed the ball square on the top of the flag. The black nut that keeps the flag secured left a nice ding as a reminder.

Get DEADLY around the greens and your cap will drop for sure. One huge difference between us mid-cappers and the low ones is that they get up and down much more frequently. Missed greens are almost like a penalty stroke for us because we can't recover.

 

Not necessarily. I think you would be shocked at my save %.

Per DECADE last 64 rounds. 74.47 scoring average.

Save               42.57%

Rough Save   46.47%

Sand Save     25.84%

Fairway Save 46.05%

2 chips per round 1.26

Dam those are not pretty. The last one drives me insane!!

Total SG Short Game -0.62, which would put me 220 on tour. So not bad with ugly percentages. But overall if I miss a green the percentages say I am making bogey.

Unfortunately no, this is a really fun one.  It's only 368 from the back tee and that fairway sits on a table.  Miss left and you're in a valley surrounded by those trees.  Miss right and it's OB.  I hit a 3 or 4 iron and it turns into a get your par and walk to the 11th scenario.

NYS has so many great public and off the beaten path courses that would rival some of the greatest courses across the country. I believe it when you say the views are incredible.

Interesting that your rough saves are slightly better than fairway. Is that a proximity thing?

My guess is typical 18 is between 18-25% save %. Which means they get up & down roughly 2-3 times a round, same as me if not better from that perspective. The biggest difference between me and an 18 is that if I miss the green 98% of the time bogey is the worst I make. Probably not the case for an 18. 

I'm not saying you improving your short game will drop your handicap, I am simply saying that for me vs you our short games are probably not that different.

Yes. My home course if you miss anywhere but short on line you are in the rough around the green. 

And the one thing that doesn't get figured in the save % that people miss is putts. It is a combination of the 2. That is why SG is so valuable.

... So many ways to play this game, 

Yes sir. Short game is a big reason why at a + I have never had a clean card. My game consists of driving it great and rolling it in the hole. If I have to rely on my chipping I would be a 10.

Scheduled for 10:06 tee time 30 miles north of my house today, but last night we got 4 inches of rain in 45 minutes! So I knew all the courses around here would be CPO with massive no shows and cancellation. With storms predicted starting at noon today so I headed to my home course hoping to get on early to get a round in. Our pro put me up with a pair of guys I didn't know but they were nice enough to let me play with them and we finished just before the storms began ( as predicted ).

Started off horribly 7 over after 4 holes! But I righted the ship and finished the round fairly strong.
