Bogey Last Hole Makes For a Bad Tasting Dinner

I was watching the Golf Channel, Playing Lessons with the Pros, Colin Montgomerie Part 2. This was one of the better shows because the entire time he is teaching you something instead of all the fluff that fills up some of the Playing Lessons shows.

Colin said this, to paraphrase – Pros don’t like bogeying the last hole. Bogeys on the last hole make your dinner taste awful.

So, to get one more par a round, let’s set a goal of no bogeys on the last hole and pay extra special attention when we are on the 18th tee. While it is unrealistic that we are going to par these every time, I think if we go in with the overall objective of “Par the last hole” we will up our percentage of pars scored per round.

What might be fun is not only tracking the basic statistics…putts per round, greens in regulation, and so on; for a few months, add “Pars on 18” and see how we do. I think once we make this routine we won’t have to think about it as much and it will just happen.
