It goes without saying that you keep and probably ‘frame’ the scorecard with a hole in one on it or for setting a new course record, but did you keep any from this season? Maybe the one with your first birdie or eagle, or maybe the one where you made 3 pars in a row, or shot your best 9 holes or round ever? Maybe you kept the one where you took the most skins from your playing partners or sank a put that put a lot of money in your pocket? I know that I have hung onto a few scorecards over the years and have had a few that I quite simply couldn’t throw away fast enough (also often paired with the removal of money from my wallet) but what if you didn’t keep a single one from this last season? If playing golf was ‘purely’ just for fun then why would they even have scorecards? If you found that you didn’t have any scorecards worth keeping from this last golf season then it’s time to make a change! Spend some time with your friendly, local, professional CPGA Instructor and start to improve your game. If you improve your skills you will play better, if you play better you will lower your scores, and if you lower your scores you may wind up keeping a few of those scorecards next season!
Have fun, Dave Lengyel
