Targets

Postby RoyHiggi on Sat Jan 18, 2020 4:02 pm

Obviously we all try to score as low as possible in every round we play but are there any other targets within a round or tournament that you strive for?
No bogeys in a tournament ( champ or elite) is one for me but another is to have a round where the longest putt is less than 10 feet! Not sure I have ever managed it but I will keep trying :lol:

I strive to have a round with all birdies or better.
Never done it been real close a couple of times!

I'm happy if I go bogie free in a round. It's not so easy with my Champ Powerstroke swing, especially from the back tees of many PGA Tour type courses.

I've been aiming at one particular spectator for years, but have never been able to hit him.

Seriously, no bogies is a great goal, and to the best of my recollection, I've never hit 100% greens and fairways in the same round (or rarely even separately).

Good luck with that!
You make a pretty good target yourself for we humans. :)
I love those rare rounds when I have fewer than 20 putts.

One that I strive for is to see how far I can go without resetting the pc.
I have a goal of making it thru one rd the first of course without
using the reset\. But, normally within 1 or 2 hole this happens. If I make it to 5 im lucky.
A bad habit. :)

Target just ticked off as I just managed a round where the longest putt was just 5 feet! It was an amateur round but it was nice. 2 strokes behind the leader though :lol: :lol: Approaches hitting the pin , lipping out .spinning back to an inch. We all know the story , sometimes it's your lucky day sometimes not :oops:

It will bite me in the you-know-what sometimes but I will 99% of time try to "jar" my approach shots. 1-2 is my goal and 3-4 of them makes me a happy Guy unless I [censored] up somewhere else on the course, which is highly possible.

ok thought it might be but surely everybody tries to hole out every approach shot! Really just luck if it happens though and as I said some days you can play a bunch of rounds and get none and then 3 will come in one round. Just makes getting the "top" score in a round a bit of a lottery.
