What a joke

Post by Flop7Wood »

This week's tournament is a frickin' joke. Turtle back greens...frickin hard and hard...hit short to run up and you hit the front hill and roll back. Or its impossible to hit short because there is a frickin sand bunker at the edge of the green. Hit beyond the front hill and you roll off the back of the green. I'm embarrassed to see a score like this after playing for almost a year. It ain't me, that's for sure. It is the set up. Funny how the host manages an 8000 score on this s**t. Please tell me Mr. Host. What is the point???? I don't give a rat's a** about winning. I just want to have fun. This is NOT fun.

hate to tell ya their old flopper but I am the only one who has put up an 8000+ score
but I am not the one that sets this tourney I just happened to get lucky and holed 1 of them out and
I have learned that in this competition that going for the pin is not the way to go on sets like this sometimes
you just have to settle getting and staying on the green, anywhere on the green.
sometimes you just have to be smarter than the course and just settle for keeping it on the green.
also, have to say I'm having plenty of fun with it don't understand why you are so hostile over a freakin game!!
oh, yea on a set like this it is all about course management. and not just wack em and go. relax and starting playing smarter than the course.

Probably very much the same. You don't ever get two shots the same, so it doesn't help. The wind changes and the power loss changes. For me, one miss instead of two.

Regarding your comment on just playing for the green. Duh, I'm stupid and have never thought of that. It doesn't matter when the shot won't go UP the hill in front or side, and speeds DOWN the hill once you hit enough to get over the hill when every single green the pin is on top of a huge slope that runs every way.

Please make a forum for people with legitimate complaints. That will keep the fan boys out.

P.S. I thought you were the setter.
