Well, I went round Congressional in 57 so unless you were being less than honest about that 65 you're going to have to look elsewhere for breakfast tomorrow.
Olympic wasn't as good, no surprise. Too many just missed putts for a decent score. Can't honestly remember the number but it wasn't good, might get some credits back but I doubt I'll break even there.
Anyway, my intention was not to destroy you or humiliate you. I have no issue with yourself or your method. Well, not a big one anyway.
What I really don't like is that new players come here, players who are probably struggling to post good scores or even make pars. What they see here might sometimes lead them to believe that they need a degree in mathematics, spreadsheet skills and loads of free time to use these crazy formulas during a round.
What are these people likely to do? Download these aids to good scores and become proficient in their use? Or go away and never come back? I have a feeling the latter.
When I started playing Bollox was the big name around here, posting scores that seemed impossible to me at the time. He rarely posted in the forums but when he did give advice it was usually very simple and easily understood by everyone. What he didn't do was make the game appear way more complex than it is. He just played, occasionally still does, the game by feel and used his experience to make the right shot at the right time.
I honestly think that new players are being turned off the game by some of these elaborate methods being posted these days. They do not need this advice. They certainly do not need it from people who are still learning the game and how best to play it.
Use whatever method you want to play the game, it's a free World after all. Just don't try to make out that you have the secret to playing well and it involves complex formulae and lots of number crunching. The only secret to playing this game is experience and memory. That's it. Nothing else is required.
I'll give you an example. When I played this shot I moved the aimer until it looked about right, gave the ball a bit of spin and dragged the power meter to nearly full.
I did not aim X yards left, use Y spin and Z power.
Worked out pretty well, all things considered.
