Ghetto Vs Iron Munt has developed into one of ISG's great rivalries.


Says the "Spike in Foot" man vs Batshit crazy?

Ok - i will capitulate, any "vs" iron muck will be drawn down to the lowest common denominator.

It's like boxing at the special olympics. It doesn't matter who wins because they're both still retarded.

I was at the gym the other week talking to one of the trainers while we were watching a ladies wresting and self defense class. There was one girl in the class who wasn't doing very well, the trainer said to me he's watched her before, he said she isn't very good at wrestling, but you should really see her box.

Thanks for the reply's.
 
To answer the questions 
 
OB - As per my reply to GG33 above - I didn't understand that on a double index score card the aforementioned scoring occurred, My ignorance and hence this post. 
         RTFM, RTFscorecard - which manual, where on the scorecard does it explain this? I've never seen a scorecard that explains how to score or manual that explains
         how score on double indexed cards.


Leenn, I expected that the double index printed on the scorecard was obvious and that further explanation was redundant.
You'll find that there is mention of it on the GA website.

With all those 4-pointers, your 'cap will be dropping quickly if you keep up the good form. You'll soon be down to 18 and not have to worry about 'double' or 'split' indexes.

As for 'funny' indexes, Beaconhills has all 27 holes on the scorecard. If you play the Lakes nine as part of your 18 holes, the index varies depending on which of the Hills nines is your other nine. It's all on the scorecard.

Had lunch with friends yesterday. One was telling me excitedly about dropping 2 shots off her cap last week. On successive rounds she parred 4s and got 5 points for them. I asked her how pissed off she would be had it been par.

Got a funny look that relates to her current 43 cap.

I think instead of getting two or heaven forbid three shots on a hole they should play off 18 and get a Mulligan or two through the green.

Interesting info ...

 

I haven't played any comp golf since my return more regular golf last year, so haven't used any stableford scoring.

 

My memory, recollection from 10+ years ago at Pelican was we used the hole 'index' to determine which holes got shots, or more etc. I was playing off 27 back then, so had the easiest (index 10-18) holes as one shot holes and the harder (index 1-9) as two shot holes. I remember getting a 2 for 5 points on a par 3 once.

 

I just looked at the Ocean Shores card and see Index on the front but also a weird table on the back. I'm going to have to find out how to use this ...

 

So, why have the index and a separate 'shot per hole'? Isn't the index a reflection of the difficulty of the hole? And, if over time the scores don't reflect that, surely the index can get moved around?

They mix up the indexes above 18 so that you don't end up with 2 shots on par 3s etc. Not sure if there's an exact science to it.

Funny thing is the table on the back of the Ocean shores card doesn't go above 18.

I'm going to inquire at the pro shop next time I'm down there.

If it doesn't go above 18 then it will just repeat. 1/19 2/20 3/21 etc

the weird table on the back is probably the Match Index...

is hole 1 rated 18?

If it is, Iam surprised -  1st @ Ocean Shores is not the easiest in my experience..

Match index is standard and doesn't change per the course.
