    Sounds like we all agree on speed of play pretty well.

    There is no reason why you can't play quickly. You aren't on the PGA Tour.

    Atta boy.

    I used to tee off at 7:30 to beat the old men to the course and would be done with 18 right at or just after 9.....walking.

    Most I ever played in a day was 63....walked them but I was 18.

    I rode the 54 and was beat. Then again, it was a nasty, hot, and humid day. I could never, even in my younger days, walk 63 in a day.

    The last summer I played a lot (2014?) I would walk 9 holes a day (hilly course) 3-4x a week and would feel gross. Builds an incredible thirst lol. But from young age I always carried and walked, it was all I knew. Can’t remember it ever affecting my play....it would now if I went out today.

    Practice swing?  I usually take 2-3 practice shots.  Pick the best one.  Newbs.

    First tee shot only.

    However, 3-putt limit and pretty generous with gimmies. Don’t want to spend half the day in greens.

    I was kidding about mulligans per hole. I think our league allows one per round (9 holes) but I never take one.

    Anyone have a major preference on their glove? I'm going to be in the market for a new one after this round, I'm guessing. My current glove is a Nike I bought on a whim at the course before a round last year. It's held up pretty well, but I don't play that much. For those that play more often than I do, I'm curious if you've found a brand that holds up well.

    Well, I’m a Nike whore. So I stick with them. I usually buy a few of the previous year’s version of the Dura Feel. I go through probably 3-4 a summer. I probably should switch out more often, but I’m cheap. I did use a TaylorMade one for awhile last summer. It was really soft, but I wore a hole in it after like 5 rounds. Can’t remember the style, but it was blue packaging.

    I played an absolutely dreadful round tonight, but only lost one ball. If you would've told me I'd only lose one ball before the round started I would've been very happy. Not so much. Too many lost strokes by following up great first shots with absolutely awful second shots. My one great drive (290 yards in the middle of the fairway, 80 yards from center green) turned into a 6 because it took four shots to get to the green. On the first hole I put my tee shot pin high, just to the left of the green, a simple chip and putt away. Of course, I lifted my head on my second shot, bladed it and sent it across the green for another chip, this one down hill that off course rolled a little too far. An easy par turned into a double bogey in an instant.

    Chipping and putting is the score. No double chips and no 3 putts...good score
