Broke a Hundred!

OK, so for all of you scratch golfers out there this may be no big deal but I'm pretty stoked about it. Especially since all of my co-workers don't do this yet.

Saturday afternoon playing at a local muni next to a beautiful lake here in north Dallas. It was a stunningly beautiful day and I took one of my sons out with me for a round. I hit par 4 times, no birdies, one ball-drowning, and no ob's. Finished up with a 96 total.

It would have been 93 but after 17 rounds of bunkerless play I dropped one into the beachfront next to the 18th green. Instead of a nice little pitch out onto the green I hit the ball directly and worm-burnered it across the green into the rough on the other side. Bah. Ah well.

Oh, and I beat my son in stroke play for a ten-spot! WOOT!

Congrats, dude. I just recently broke 100 (and 90) too, so I know how big a milestone this is. Keep up the good work.

Congrats!!

Love hearing about these milestones...breaking 100 is a big deal. So many golfers never make it and thousands more may break 100 only a few times...

"...may break a hundred only a few times."

Really?? I didn't realize it was that rare. I played a LONG time ago in high school and a murderous slice drive me out of the game. In Feb I bought my wife a new car and cashed in all of the good-guy points for a set of clubs. For some stupid reason the slice is gone more or less and life is good.

Now the trick is to see if I can do it again, eh? I'm pretty sure I can, we'll see this coming weekend.

Well it would be great to go low twice in a row...but keep your expectations realistic. Commit to playing regularly and hitting balls once a week at the range and you will definitely see improvement...

I'd say I average playing about 5 times a year for the past 5 or 6 years, and I have yet to break 100, but always come so close to doing so. College graduation comes in a month, and after that I'll be playing a lot this summer I hope. My goal is to break 100, and keep it at below 100 this summer. Congrats :)

Congrats! I hope to do the same thing soon. I started taking golf seriously at the end of last year. I took some lessons and started practicing ALOT (actually probably to much).

Nice play Sumo!
I'm pretty sure you'll improve rapidly with lots of time on the course... that is, if your wife agrees for you to play... :)

i couldn't break 90 today at my tournament, started off absolutely terrible, horrendous play, into 40 mph gale winds on like 7 holes finished up with a 50 on the front, was absolutely beside myself, the putting was what really killed me though, so i switched back to the ten finger grip at the turn and putts started falling, then my driver quit on me but i was able to scrap out a 41, 91, i just want to forget today

way to go.any time you break threw a scoring barrier i belive it makes it easier the next time alot easier because you know you can doit.so keep up the good work youll be breakin 90 before you know it.

my personal wall is 80 but i have a feeling it comin down this year.

Congrats...it's true that it gets easier now. I broke 100 early last year and stuck to it all season (with only a couple "slipups")...topped out at 90 with several low 90s...we'll see once the game gets back on the road (exams finish SO soon!)

Good luck!

Ywah once you break 100 90 will come shortly there after. 80 on the other hand. I have done it twice in my life and for the life of me have no idea how I did it. Hopefuly I'll break thourgh that barrier soon and keep it below 80 fairly consistently.
