2.6 and I've got 6 rounds under par this year. (Play close to a hundred a year though)

From 2013-2016 I had a total of five combined. I still have a fear of going low and end up playing defence but I'm working on that.

@pinestreet would lose his mind if I gave too much credit to the switch to single length irons lol.

Thought that might be the case, but wasn't sure.  I suppose a round under/at par in some kind of competition would be considered higher quality.  Thanks much.

PG,

I've had a few rounds under/at par in competition.  Most recent was a few weeks ago at the New Mexico Women's Amateur (72 in the first round - white tees about 6100 yards).  I also shot 66 from the forward tees for our Beat the Pros day a few years ago.

I've broken par several times, including a course record once. My handicap fluctuates during the year in the single digits. The lowest it's ever been is a 2. I always putt exceptionally, it's clearly the strength of my game. The times I've broken par is when the rest of my game catches up to my putting. My struggle has always been consistency. When I keep the driver in play and hit a lot of greens , I give my putting a chance to work its magic.

So I guess you could say the trick is trying to shore up the weaknesses in your game while maintaining your strengths. When you find yourself playing really well, don't think about your score, focus on each shot. It helps when your playing  in some sort of competition. If keeps your concentration where it should be. All my low rounds were shot in big money games or tournaments.

Something else I recall about these rounds is, on almost every occasion, I was playing with guys who could converse on a wide variety of topics. It is what I would term a "pleasant distraction ". It was like we'd stop the conversation every few minutes to hit golf shots then go right back to it. It was remarkable in that the day seemed to breeze by and I never felt anxious about the golf because the company was so engaging. Even when I hit a bad shot, I just wiped the slate clean and on to the next one because I wasn't living and dying with each one. Like they say, pressure's a choice.

Not with a comp card, but shot 68 with a visiting club pro and D1 golfer.  I played regular tees (6300; slope 131), no bogies;  69 yrs old at the time.

I'm a 6.7 and will usually shoot par once or twice a year and have broken par twice by 1.  My putting is terrible but I may have fixed that yesterday with about 3 hours on the putting green and some lead tape.

my best advice would be to go to the hardware store and buy 8 to 10 mini pylons.  Usually they're in the sports section.  Go to the end of the range and place the pylons out evey 10 yards starting at 20 or 30 yards.  Make a matrix on a piece of paper with your wedges on one axis and 8/4  9/3  10/2  11/1  and full on the other.  These number correspond to a clock face and where you bring the club back to.

hit 20 shots with each wedge at each swing length and record the distance.  Don't record any really bad shots or fat or thin shots.  Average these and you'l have several options at every yardage inside 100  yards.  I took the averages and wrote them on the back of my wedges with a sharpie.  If i have a short shot into the wind I look at my pw or 52 for a yardage close to what I need and use that.  Having the numbers there seems to be a mental thing and all i think about is bringing my hands back to 9 o'clock or so. It's worked so well I'm considering doing this for all my irons for knock downs but likely just 10/2

I've just done this recently and my short game has going from terrible to fantastic instantly.  

The biggest benifit is that I'm now hitting my partial swings much more in control and rarely use a full or 11/1 or ever 10/2 swing anymore with my wedges.

Rick shiels has a great 3 part series I think called wedge perfect that I got this from.  It only takes a couple hours at the range to do this.  If you have access to an accurate launch monitor that could be even better.

i also suggest staying with 8/4 and recording 10 shots with each wedge and get an average.  Do this for each swing length.  Then do it again but this time stick with one wedge and hit each distance.  As a single digit you'll quickly see every shot with 5 yards and likely about 80 to 90 percent within 3 yards.

tried this today and very very encouraging results, no wrist break, I have always taken a club that need wrist break as its too far without, so this way was much better, thanks

Bad analogy. First off, the wind at 1,000 feet would be a huge influence. Secondly, equating a life threatening pursuit with golf is foolish.

I've shot under par many times with my lowest score being a -5 67. However, course rating was only 69.3. I also have shot tow -2 70's on a Pete Dye course rated 74.3. So far this year I have shot under par 3 times.

When I do it is because I am avoiding big numbers, hitting a large number of greens and saving pars when I miss them. I also consider my self a pretty decent putter and rarely will I not have birdies with a round. For example, yesterday I rolled in 4 birdies but had 2 doubles and a bogey and shot +1.. Turning those doubles into just bogies would have resulted in another sub par round.

Fairways and greens, generally hitting to the center of greens, working on the short game, chipping, pitching and putting will get you there.

I'm a 4 right now and I've shot under par for 18 holes a few times.  The majority of time though I only get to play 9 and I've shot even under par for 9 holes a lot.  For me it depends on the iron game.  I did shoot 1 under for 9 holes the other week hitting 1 green in regulation.  That was unusual.

I am currently a 5 and I have shot par only 5 times. I generally shoot in a very tight range of 75-82. I do not make many birdies I am more of a grind it out with a lot of pars, throw in a few bogies, and keep double bogeys off the card type of golfer. I max out out 6600 yards providing all the length is not in the par 4's.

I am thinking of getting a putting lesson because I cannot make putts anymore and the few that go in always seem to be for par and not birdie. I pretty much get by on hitting the ball straight and very good chipping lately. I am actually more confident in chipping in for birdie than making a 20 foot putt for birdie nowadays haha.

I had to buy a new driver as my old driver of 9 years broke. I hate change and once I get comfortable with the new driver I am hoping for more rounds closer to the 75 par of my range. The rest of my game is quite solid right now, but the driver is killing me. I managed to finally hit a couple of real nice drives on the last couple of holes today and shot a 82. Hopefully I tapped into something on those final two holes!!!

When I played to a 2-3 index, I shot 71 once on my home course (par 72). Had a few even par rounds, and more than I can count between 73-75.

My first real chance to go under par for a round I was 1 under on 18 tee box. Hit a perfect drive and left myself about 100 yards from the middle of the fairway. I proceeded to lay sod over the ball and it dribbled into the pond in front of the green. I hit 4 onto the green and 2 putted to finish at 1 over. I was not happy.

I am a 9.7 index.  I've shot 72 one time, and in the 70's probably ten times (4 of them in a 10 day span).  All the rest, tightly bunched around where you'd expect to see someone who is barely a single digit score.  We can always dream....

I think if you consistently play with better players you will break that mark.  I tend to lose focus when I play with higher handicaps.  Maybe this is just an excuse but it seems that when making par is the norm, you seem to focus more on making that par.  For me this seems to manifest into more focus around the greens to get up and down, etc.

I've shot under par once (many years ago at "Old" Torrey Pines North), but never shot par. I've had a handful of 1 over rounds.

I would agree that getting up and down (which coincides with good putting) will allow scores to be lower. I'm not consistent enough round after round in terms of getting up and down when I miss the green on my approach shots. For me, it's avoiding blowups on par 3s and capitalizing on par 5s.

When I played closer to a 2 i shot even probably 3-4 times and shot 1-71 and 1-70, never broke 70. Most of the time my score was between 73-77.

I have played between a 3.5 and 5.5 for like 8 years now.  Have shot par a couple of times and only below par once.  I shoot par or better on 9 holes fairly often but putting it together for a total below par is obviously rare for me.

I typically play pretty difficult courses so that's obviously another factor.  I can't remember the last time I played a course with below a 130 slope rating and/or depending on par, generally the course rating is 71+ on what I play.

In the winter league (shorter course) last year i had a 69 and i was off 8 i think at the time cant remember exactly.

I'm off 4 now and had two under par rounds but neither have been at my home course, really struggle to get enough birdies at my own course holds me back

Been under par 2-3 times, shot par many more than that.  It's funny, shooting from 1 to 3 over is easy compared to par.  Getting under par consistently is at least twice as hard as shooting 74 or 75.  I have spent most of the year between 74 and 78, made tons of birdies and a couple eagles...not a round in red numbers yet (for 18) this year

The times I've been at Par or under its been about the quality of my tee shots and my putting.

If you can drive it well and putt well, you will score well.  

The more I work at my game, the more I realize that the old adage "Drive for show, Putt for dough" isn't entirely accurate.  Put yourself in the right place off the tee consistently and everything else seems to fall in line.

I've never broke par before. Right now I'm at 7.8 and the Closest I've ever come was a 36/40 for 76 (par 72, 70.4/144). At the simulator where I can play 15' gimmies I can shoot in the high 60's and low 70's regularly though ;)

At my current index, the best I`ve done is 75.
But back in the day when I was a 2 I had a number of 69`s and regularly hovered around par. Never could get it below 69 for some reason, though.
