It’s all relative. You can shoot even par with 36 putts, or you can shoot even with 26 putts. Or you can shoot 20 over with 34 putts.

but, if you have 18 short putts, and yet you miss all but 2, then yea, you had a bad putting day. But if you’re on in reg every hole, but with long putts at birdie, and only make 2, but don’t 3 putt at all, then you had a good day putting with 34 putts. But you just shot 2 under…

make sense?  It all depends….

Based on this blog, I've seen a "good" number of putts be defined as:

0.45GIR + 22.5 = Target Putts Per Round

I personally think that's a little unfair, but it's a starting point that you could use to adjust to your own game.

78 this morning at home, but I played the middle tees, so it could have been better. Only 1 birdie, but no doubles or penalties. Lots of balls bouncing over greens, even with 58 & 54 wedges. I think it's time to find a new home.😬

Best round ever, 92. Shot a 42 on the front 9 and then proceeded to melt down on the back half of the back 9.

But still a great round overall, no OB, no penalties, played the entire round with one ball. 

Congratulations 👍

Shot my best round ever today, a 1 under par 71 (previous best was a 72).  5 birdies on the round but I was never better than 1 under as I seemed to follow all the birdies with bogeys.

Congratulations on the personal bests @dlow206 and @Bucky CC! It's always a great feeling to hit a milestone scoring like that.

Decent day today. Didn't break into the 60's but sooooo close. 35 / 35 for a 70. Then as I finished up I was asked if I wanted to play another 9. Who am I to say no since they asked nicely. Managed 1 over and missed an easy birdie putt. 

I don't know the last time I played 27 holes. Then I got to my car and took off my golf shoes and noticed a spike missing. Looking further it was the entire insert that ripped out. Then I saw three others ripping out. I think they are rebelling against the 27 holes. They were my favorite ones too. Puma Ignite"s

Oh well. If I must shop for a new pair so be it. Shopping day today😀

That's still some good scoring @Tom the Golf Nut and hopefully you'll find a pair of shoes that you love as much as the Puma's. I played 27 earlier in the year and man, I felt it the next day. Took a lot more strokes for me to get around, though.

No sleeping on my couch. I already got a new pair on order. Should show up on Thursday. Got to get them broken in for my golf outing in Kansas City at the end of the month.  Cause you know that the other five pair I have around the house just wouldn't work!

I think you did the right thing. There's a lot of good scoring potential in brand new shoes. I have 3 pair just sitting around, myself. 

Which ones did you order?

Played pretty  lousy today;  don't know what I scored but 5 triples really hurt.  Driver and pitch shots were not too good; had 3 pitches roll back to my feet and hit 2 balls OB.   🙂        Tried heads up putting today and I think I am going to stick with it.  Line and speed were pretty good.

I tried heads up putting today too for shorter putts. Worked well.

I've toyed with heads up putting a few times over the years.  I tend to do it more on the practice green than when they count, but it does free up my stroke (i.e. not thinking about the stroke and instead focusing on distance and line).  You know, it's a lot like tossing a ball and it makes sense.  You don't look at the ball when you toss it to your friend.  Long putts are another story though.  I'm just a creature of habit and have putted with my head down for so many years.   I consider myself a decent putter, but I may play with heads up on shorter stuff again during the winter months.

I'll withhold judgement about the "others".....been there, done that, got the tee shirt.  A lot more people would make triples if they putted everything out until holed.  I see far too many people pick up and say "gimme a double" in non-tournament play.  We had a tournament the other day that required putting everything out.  One 15 handicap player in our group missed at least 5 putts inside 3 feet.

Got another pair of Puma. Similar  to the Ignites I had.  This one has the ratchet mechanism. Ignite Pwradapt Caged Disc. Though I would give it a try.
