    I was wondering what the time frame to play?

    I would prefer to wait until everyone else is done, see what clubs the lowest score selected and then play my round.

    I am sure I would do much better if I could take thinking out of the equation.

    I was wondering what the time frame to play?

    All week until the Wk 1 9-Hole Unlimited tournament ends. I will do the drawing Monday morning.

    I decided ahead of time my club order, willing to use a couple 3W shots for the par 5's.  I wished I had kept my  6i for Holes 12 and 13, but punching the 5i worked okay on both.  Caught the bunker on 13, but made a nice par-saving putt after an okay out.

    Then I wished I had kept the 8i for holes 15 and 16.  Learned my lesson on 13 about  punching when there's a high bunker in the way like on 15, so I used a partial 7i there, but punching the 7i on 16 worked and I made the birdie putt.

    My strategy on the par 5's was close to okay.  But I tried to lay up on 17 and the tilt of the fairway put me into the right side bunker.  Getting out wasn't hard, but I rimmed the 6 foot birdie putt.  Typical of my putting on Olympic.

    34 ---  a pretty typical score for me on this 9.  Two birdies, the rest pars, with 2 other rimmers.

    If I had notes on the holes, I would have kept the 180-yard and 150-yard clubs longer and given up my 75-yard wedge and 5i sooner.  (It's just really hard for me to give up those low wedges, lol!)   But, that's with the wind I had.  With different wind, another person might have had the perfect clubs left with my order of dropping.

    10. 4i

    11. 6i  (bird)

    12. 8i

    13. 120 wedge

    14. 75 wedge

    15. Driver

    16. 5i (bird)

    17. 3i

    18. 50 wedge

    I'm not at all sure if dropping clubs at Olympic has handicapped me lol. A 33 looks like a usual full bag ;-)


    11-wedge 75y




    15-wedge 100y

    My 5th day with new irons and I am glad I had them. I just wished I had a putter.

    I missed 3 ez pz birds to start with, lipped a birdie miss and bogied the last hole.

    I think my club selection was dead on and if dropped the putts, I could've been a contender!!!

    #10 - 9 iron

    #11 - 6 iron

    #12 - 8 iron

    #13 - 4 iron

    #14 - 90 wedge

    #15 - 70 wedge

    #16 - 3 wood

    #17 - 5 iron

    #18 - 3 iron

    Finished with a 1 under par 35

    Oh brother...this was really hard as I play the free rock.  I had to keep my 2 woods until the end.  Thank God the tourney was from the red tees.  All pars with bogies on the Par3 4th and the Par5 17th.

    #10 - 4 iron

    #11 - 6 iron

    #12 - 3 iron

    #13 - 56 degree wedge

    #14 - 5 iron

    #15 - 8 iron

    #16 - 7 iron

    #17 - 60 degree wedge

    #18 - 3 wood

    Finished +2 at 38

    Fun for sure...challenging with the rocks...look forward to playing weekly.

    gif coin flip

    Missed 4 very makable putts from inside 12 feet, shoulda been a sub 30 round but fun nonetheless!

    Fun format Brett TY for putting this out there!

    Oh those greens at Olympic are really nasty.  My club selection didn't hurt me at all, but my putter did.

    #10 - dropped 4i - just burned the edge of the cup on the makable birdie putt ended up with par

    #11 - dropped 3w - same story as 10, just missed the makable birdie and ended up with par

    #12 - dropped 60 deg - same story as 10 and 11 end up with par

    #13 - dropped 7i - 4 putt double bogie - two edge burners

    #14 - dropped the pw - bogie, but I actually made the putt after hacking my way to the green in 4

    #15 - dropped 5i - first birdie

    #16 - dropped 9i - another edge burn to miss the birdie putt, ended up with par

    #17 - dropped 6i, left a 4ft, 1 inch uphill putt short after hitting to 4.5 on 12 greens just doesn't make sense by Olympic greens never do

    #18 - dropped 3i, finished strong with a birdie

    End up with a 38, but would have been a 38 even with a normal set of clubs.

    I have played the week 2 chambers bay unlimited 

    Thanks for getting us started! It looks like we lost a little interest last week, but let's finish this out with one more week. Here is a rule reminder...


    1- No restarts. This is single play (honor system)

    2- Before every tee shot, note 1 more club you will not use for the rest of the round (honor system) (This means you will already choose and drop your first club before you play #1)

    3- Post your results here. List your score and the clubs that you quit using in order.

    4 - Course is Wk 2 9 Hole Unlimited PlayWe will use this tournament so all WGT players can play and so players can play it again normal if they like. This week is at Chamber Bay. 

    Here are the results from Week 1. mrshanestaley won the random drawing. This sets a record for the most I have ever spent on a sleeve of balls 😂🤣 I normally gift the ball I use, but since I didn't specify, a sleeve of Titleist has been sent. 

    Week 1:

    31 - mrshanestaley  *Random Drawing Winner*

    33 - Gepetto1958

    34 - AlaskanDame

    35 - HamdenPro

    37 - bossbird

    38 - pmm711

    38 - JBIII9
