    Getting excited about scoring well in Winter...

    Today a couple of our guys seemed to me getting affy over excited about a few pars on the trot and the odd birdie. Winter greens that are a drive and a chip to, sometimes even a long putt to, really, what's the point in that ?

    Couple weeks back I had a run of 4 birdies on the trot and didn't bat an eye, these guys would probably have wanted a Sky Sports interview had it been them. It's all fine and well and good for confidence racking up a few pars, but c'mon guys, lets be realistic eh !!

    Can only play the course thatís in front of them and if people are enjoying themselves right now then where is the harm ?

    Itís great when you have players that normally struggle get themselves into a run of good form and I normally see these players start the season really well and get some good early rounds under their belt.

    And at times during the winter it could well be harder to score well - the greens donít run as smooth , the fairways are a bit muddier , the roll isnít as consistent- so itís all relative.

    Keep on celebrating and enjoying the game - itís what makes it the game we all love and why despite games of poor form we keep going back

    5 birdies and an eagle today but no one heard me blowing my own horn, full greens with a few winter tees but it is what it is winter golf it's just a knock with your mates nothing to get exited about, you just need to at the I Played Today Thread and you can see all the guys that want their backs patted for getting 30 odd points...

    My course is only 100 yards shorter in the winter and all the greens are the same

    Actually harder to score better due to conditions...lot of muddy lies for chipping and mudballs!

    Winter golf is painful. I wouldnít get too excited about playing well or too down about playing badly. It counts for nothing

    You seem to be denigrating a lot of golf courses with that view!

    Just enjoy your game, and let others enjoy theirs.
    some metal woods,
    any old irons,
    Pick up balls....

    12.2 and moving the wrong way again...

    Winter golf, enjoy being out, keep the swing ticking over, don't worry about bad scores or get excited about good ones.
