Tour 11 - general advice

Yesterday, 09:50 PM

Ok, I’m “ready”. I’m going in. I think.

I expect to get my ****************** handed to me, but I’m prepared bankroll wise.

I’d love some advice though, any recommendations would be ace.

Winter Games Opening Round

15 February 2018 - 07:55 AM

Starting in T-5 minutes, anyone going in early?

Is there a definitive rule of thumb for curling? Say this amount of wind needs this amount of curl to completely straighten the ball. One half ball for every x amount of wind kind of thing.

Post your notes, please.


How do you set up your shot to green?

12 February 2018 - 12:58 AM

Having (only) played about 5000 games I've still seen a million ways to set up a shot, so I'm curious how you are setting up your shot (to green).

Here's mine, step by step, it's in no way great, because I'm a hack, but I thought it would be fun to compare.

1. Determine whether you're min, mid or max club, also check elevation.

2. Take wind number and adapt it to above. A mid long iron is roughly 87.5% power so 10 wind gives me 8.75.

3. Take that number and line up my shot, adjusting about 1 square per 6 wind, so with an 8.75 right wind, I'll aim 1.5 squares left off the pin.

4. Look at my chart, I have it in front of me when i set up my shot.

Backbone 10 gives me 1.16 per ring so, 1.2 - 2.3 - 3.5 - 4.5 - 5.8 - 7 - 8.1 - 9.3

5. My chart shows me that 8.75 equals around 7.5 rings.

5.5 (curl if i have to, but remember that it negates step 3)

6. Swing and pray.
